Can’t escape bump board ad

Every time I enter a tournament the x to close the ad for the bump board they want you to buy won’t work cause it’s crammed behind my battery level on my phone so I have to close the app and restart because I can’t click anywhere without going to a separate site to buy a bump board I don’t want.

Developer Response ,

I've see what your are saying. For some reason, your phone puts the x in a place you can't find? If so, that is a google ad problem. They have complete control over where the buttons are on their ads. We have to wait for them to fix that or we would have to eliminate all ads.

We have made sure that the ad does not interfere in any way with your tournament. There are no ads when you go to enter a fish and nothing will stop you from competing. This ad was only available during the "join a tournament" process and a bump board was offered because it is useful for your tournament.

Perfect and Easy

I use this to run a small private tournament. Everybody easily registers and I can easily use the app to communicate to the participants. We run the tournament by length and the app automatically culls and gives real time rankings. The app allows you to enter length and a picture of the species being caught. A bump board is recommended. It makes the tournament so much fun because of the real time rankings. Starts and ends right on time and the app doesn’t allow for entering before and after the whistle. Although, I use for a small tourney, it would work for any size. This is the best app for any fishing tournament. Used know for 3 years and never has a glitch. Perfect and easy!!

A MUST HAVE for any tournament angler!

I love this app! It’s so simple and easy to use and there are so many different tournaments you can get involved in, many at super low cost or even free! Even semi-pro tournaments are much easier and better for the fish with using this app. Best part is, there’s always a real person you can talk to if you have issues. Thanks Darren at FishDonkey!
