Ratings and Reviews
Great usage and potential, fix text bugs
Love having my license stored. I wish there was an offline mode to store a recent copy of fishing regulations, etc.. Also when the app pulls data from the website some pages do not display correctly. (I’m on iphone 6+ running ios 11.2.6 for bug reporting purposes)
After looking through other reviews for this app, one mentioning formatting errors from 3 years ago. It would be nice to see this issue fixed as navigating fishing regulations is too difficult. Luckily there is the workaround with the ‘view full website’ button but at that point it’s much easier to just navigate the website from your own browser of choice and not from within the confines of the app window.
Great app.. BUT....
Excellent app that I use, while fishing, for accessing licensing information and records, as well as tide and seas information. However, many features are not accessible when you are offshore, fishing, in an area without cellular coverage. So, when you're out in the reef, you do not have access to fish ID pictures from the linked fishing handbook, license information and size/quota information. These would be very convenient to have actually downloaded into a user's phone, for offshore retrieval. Additionally, the app would benefit greatly by having a fish identification library with large photos, rather than only relying on the small bitmaps in the linked regulation pamphlets...
I had trouble buying my license with this app at first, but finally figured it out. The roll down menu confused me. You need to touch the words on the menu itself to enter. I was looking for a separate button. Once I got past this, it worked fine.
