Awesome app needs work!
Can you please update your APP to be as informative as your web page?
My students are greatly interested in keeping up with your studies of the ocean's top predator. Using the APP is easier for us to use but needs a big update.
There are many mistakes in the APP. For instance, Marylee and Katherine among a few, were not both tagged Jan 1, 1715. "The Ocearch Vessel "did not surface long enough to get an accurate position." would always be incorrect.
Can you add in the APP a way to search by type of shark and a create a favorites list with their data? Can this be printable?
In the APP can the tracks of sharks be easier to read? Such as position of capture, where they spent their time by season, any correlation to be in certain places?
Can there be regular updates or yearly summaries of what you've learned about each shark?
Do you have enough data to predict future movements?
Did tropical storm Anna cause several Great Whites to swim away from the Ga to NC areas or were they following prey that were fleeing the storm?
Really good app!!
This is a great app, I thoroughly enjoy being able to track my favorite sharks (shout out to Wyatt and lamanga) and share with friends! However I do have one small problem, to get back to the full map of sharks from one specific shark's information, I find myself having to refresh the app to get back to it. Otherwise I am completely satisfied with this app. One other suggestion would be notifications of specific sharks, I would love to be able to know where my faves are in real time. Thank you so much for listening and have a good day!!!
Good concept terrible implementation.
When i tried to zoom into a shark you can get some data but then when you try to zoom out or go to another shark you can't. Sometimes it does allow you to zoom out but it doesn't take you back to the shark that you were looking at, it zooms all the way out which isn't what I want. You have to restart the app when you're stuck on a shark. Dates are all incorrect . There is no history on the where have I been tag. Maybe you should put an animation that shows the progress over time and where the shark goes as an animation for each shark. The app also has a very clunky and amateurish feel to it.
Finally if I'm a fisherman aren't you concerned that people use this app to track and capture the fish?
