Previous version was much better

I am a bank fisherman. This app was one of my favorites, and I used it almost daily to locate potential fishing sites.
The new fishing locations map is not user friendly and doesn’t immediately pull up to your current location. This makes it pretty much useless. As for the remaining features, if you intend to either renew a license or identity a catch those are good - but either of those can be done without the app.
TWRA needs to bring back the interactive map that was in the previous version.
I give this app a 1, because the fish identifier would have some redemptive value if it were functional. Otherwise this is pretty much a useless app; having not used it since it was updated several months ago, and seeing no improvement, I am deleting the app.

Unusable for license purchase

Asks DOB and SSN information for login to purchase fishing license, then asks for phone number and email... then error-crashes out saying (no joke) "Invalid eye color." While I'm pleased that the TWRA is thoughtful enough to care about my eye color, it is not a question that was asked, and how can it be an invalid color anyway?

At any rate, it is non-functional for me to purchase a fishing license, which was the entire point of downloading it.


Could be more user friendly

I love having this app on my phone but it could be more user friendly. It's great for checking in my harvest, but if I have a question about something in the laws it takes my forever to find it!
