Bug Fixes and Improvements
Ratings and Reviews
Great usage and potential, fix text bugs
Love having my license stored. I wish there was an offline mode to store a recent copy of fishing regulations, etc.. Also when the app pulls data from the website some pages do not display correctly. (I’m on iphone 6+ running ios 11.2.6 for bug reporting purposes)
After looking through other reviews for this app, one mentioning formatting errors from 3 years ago. It would be nice to see this issue fixed as navigating fishing regulations is too difficult. Luckily there is the workaround with the ‘view full website’ button but at that point it’s much easier to just navigate the website from your own browser of choice and not from within the confines of the app window.
One Major Flaw!
This is great for license convenience!!! Most of the other functions work well and are very useful. However, the sunrise and sunset feature has a major flaw in my opinion. Please add a feature to allow us to choose a location for sunrise and sunset!!!! The problem is that you have to have your "Location Services" on to find out what time the sunrise or sunset is. Most of the time, I'm trying to find this information for another location!!!! I'm not hunting or fishing in my house or at work!!!! I'm going to travel to another part of the state and I need to know what time the sunrise is at THAT location!!!! Florida and Georgia use basically the same app, so hopefully a change to one would carry over to the other app. I live in Florida, but I'm going to Georgia tonight and I need to know what time the sunrise will be in north Georgia tomorrow!!!! Others may be flying in to South Florida for a fishing trip and want to know what time the sunrise and sunset will be...
Good start to a great app
I use this often. Keeping up with regulations can be tricky to say the least and
This app makes it easier to access. Updating and purchasing licenses is easy. Would like to see downloadable regulations. Also the WMA brochures only open the first page and cannot view the rest of the pdf. Please fix this. This is important for quick reference while hunting. I use fishing regulations as well. Would like to be able to save the PDFs to my phone so they can be organized and viewed in the native apple app and printed through AirPrint. Please update often and keep up the good work.
