In our last release, we offered a new Dark Mode option for your viewing pleasure. In this new release, we continue to improve how all things appear in our app. We noticed our schedule and news articles were not looking their best. So, we fixed those display issues to make it easier for you to view the latest updates on the lake.
Ratings and Reviews
Smart Lakes app his too new for me to fully appreciate it. I’m not seeing the detailed maps for Smith Lake as described in the app intro. In fact, I’m not seeing any map detail. Am I not doing something right in the app? It would be nice if it included labels for each lake area, such as Rock Creek, Brushy Creek, Ryan Creek, etc. labels for all the roads would also help. Google maps has far more info.
I much prefer the former Shorelines which didn’t require me to to log into the app to check the lake levels. More instructions would be helpful.
The ability to apply for permits and ask questions is a. Ice addition. I’m sure that the app will improve significantly with subsequent updates and releases.
This app is not at all what it is supposed to be
People download this app for fishing info. No one cares how many lightbulbs the lake is powering or how much water is going through the turbines at any second. There are next to zero “spillway nerds,” and “lightbulb nerds.” Cater to the fishermen and your app will go a lot farther and get better results. No one wants to see the nearest mobile home park, or nearest subway/Taco Bell to the lake. People DO want to see things like: 1) water depth, (find water maps of the lake, upload data into app so we can see where holes and outcroppings are to fish off of. 2) hot fishing locations (allow fisherman to upload their own fish catches to the app and tag where on the lake they caught it, what species it is, and add pictures/comments. 3)show whether the lake is stocked or not. (Whether or not a lake is stocked has a big impact on the fishery, find out which lakes are stocked with what species of fish, and who does the stocking, and upload that data into the app.
Need lake level notifications!
App works fine for checking Smith Lake pool levels but it would be great if you could set phone alerts if the pool levels moved from point A to B. Please add this feature. It will improve the app drastically!!!
