Ratings and Reviews
Nice and clean but Regulations access needs help.
Very nice looking application with a good amount of info. One thing that would definitely improve the app immensly would be a direct reference to regulations from the fish section. The way it is now you can id fish by looking at photos and view some details about the particular fish, but no regulations. You would then have to back all the way out to the main menu and then go into the regulations section and scroll through to find the regulation that would govern the fish you just identified. A link or embedded regulation info is a must.
Read the Directions
The newest version of this app is GREAT! It loaded with ease. I READ THE DIRECTIONS!!!! I hate it when people leave bad reviews because they are too lazy to read the directions or follow the instructions. I e-mailed BrokenLure to thank them for the clear directions, because I was concerned after I read those other reviews that I wouldn't be able to get the app. Not so, after reading the directions is was so simple to load and it works perfectly.
Needs to be updated more frequently
This would be a great app if the developer updated the changing fishing regulations, i.e. the early opening of scallop season, the closing of snook season, etc. Although there is a disclaimer to check the FWC for the "most up-to-date" regulations, why pay $4.99 when you can go to the FWC website for free? Also, please update the boat ramps section and the Bait shops.
Pros: knot section is excellent along with the fish Identification and measurement information. Keep updating, especially with the oil spill and I will give it more stars.
