Great app, exactly what I was looking for!
This app has good weekly reports and articles. I especially like to read the weekly outdoor report, which gives a general overview of the week's results from those who know way more about fishing and hunting than I do. I love the interactive map. I have the GPS set to only run while using the app otherwise it eats the battery. You can zoom in and out on the map, and follow rivers and see boat access spots. My favorite part is touching the boat access icon to see the GPS coordinates and more detailed information about the area. I'm terrible at getting in and out of our little fishing boat, so the fact that I can see if the ramp is paved or gravel, or if it's a carry-in only site or if it has a dock, and how many loading lanes, makes it perfect to find a place I'd consider launching from. It does not give a dollar amount of launch fees, but tells you if there is a fee or not. It also shows if there are restrooms or cleaning areas, etc. I am finding more places I can fish that I never knew about. I am sure hunters would enjoy the other features of the app that I do not use.
Full of information and easy to use. This app has surpassed my expectations. I specifically like the calculator that uses your location to tell you shooting hours. This is nice for when you are in an area that is close to different shooting times. It is also full of information on game and has a weather section. Despite a couple crashes (what app doesn't crash?) it works great.
Good for what I need.
I use the app to find out the dates on Hunting season's and also to check up on the rules. It does crash every now and then but I restart it and then it works. But other than that the dates that I need are right there on hand also the time that I have to be out of the woods is right there at my fingertips whenever and wherever I am with my phone.
