If a app is launched we expect to see that the Android and iPhone users are treated all the same. We’re all fishermen right? And when paying the pretty serious amount of almost 4 dollar we expect to be treated pretty freakin’ well too. Well, IFish USA thinks otherwise.
We were amazed to see that the Android version does not even have the option to log our catches and check the catches of other anglers. Then, what did we pay for…
Long and boring lists
A good question. All we could see ware very long lists of lakes that you can check out. Ok, sounds interesting. Let’s try some of these lakes, and start with Alabama and click on ‘View all lakes’. First lake on the list is A W Dale Lake, let’s see what’s going on.
Hmmm, disappointing result: apart from the directions … Read More »
FLW Outdoors has a long-standing, well-deserved reputation in Bass fishing that precedes it all the way to Europe. Every patriarch that’s burdened with upholding such a reputation will recognize the effect that offspring can have, be it beneficial or devastating. This warrants a closer look at the fishing app that spawned from FLW Outdoors, called ‘FLW Tournament Bass Fishing’. We set out to expose its true nature and figure out which one flies…
‘FLW Tournament Bass Fishing’ is available for both android (GooglePlay) and iPhone (app store). The overall android score comes down to a very respectable 4.4 stars out of a total of five. Review results from the app store, unfortunately, are very few and thus inconclusive. Users have to download the basic app, containing some basic functions, which is free of charge. Unsurprisingly so, more advanced functions are then … Read More »
Bass app ‘Bass Fishing Diary’ is being put under the ‘apps for anglers’-microscope this time. An app that, for once, does exactly what the name implies. No more, no less. Let’s take a closer look.
Poor choice of words
We can appreciate the app being called a ‘diary’ instead of a ‘logbook’. However, we’re not quite convinced that this was a smart move. Aren’t diaries usually associated with girly activities, involving a lot of strange feelings and hysterical emotions, instead of manly fishing? And to some of us the word has a somewhat sad connotation, given the whole Anne Frank-thing that played out during WWII? It’s safe to say that we would’ve probably gone with ‘Bass fishing log’…
Isn’t Bass app a little limited?
Well, you can keep a pretty accurate record of your day-to-day Bass fishing. But let’s assume that we fish for … Read More »
If you’re looking for apps for anglers and you’re into watching video’s, the Bass Fishing app might be your thing. At least, if you can handle a serious amount of commercials. Cause that’s what this free Android fishing app is all about: great bass fishing video’s, supported by pop ups and ads. And nothing more. A few adjustments would surely add a star to the 3.5 star review.
Fishing app reviews are our business. And sometimes we’re happy that we can do that business indoors. Like today. With the rain pooring down and a chilly eastern wind, today is the perfect day to review Bass Fishing, developed by Outdoorapps.
In a world of rather boring apps for anglers (let’s just be honest here), it’s nice to just watch these video’s for a while. Massive bass hitting a surface lure, brilliant bass fishing surrounded … Read More »
For any angler that just wants to cast out a line and enjoy the day without really bothering about the catch: please forget this fishing app. In this review of My Fishing Advisor we’ll show that the promised quality is not just a matter of bragging. This free ad supported version is fairly simple when it comes to the design. But the advice on the best fishing tackle and fishing times compensate for this. Downside is that the current version only targets America. Also, it’s not compatible with several commonly used phones such as the Samsung Galaxy S3.
This is what really amazed us: the quality of features is there, but the ‘look and feel’ of this free fishing app give the impression that it’s nothing more then a spare-time hobby gone wrong. A visit to Myfishingadvisor.com reenforces this impression. There are no links … Read More »
