I like the layout and the cleanliness of it. However, I don’t find it to be very practical. Its not worth the space on my phone. HOWEVER...
What would make this app a 5 star in my mind would be if it had a location finder or a hunt planner (walkthrough) to make it easier for fishermen and hunters alike. The current one is small and hard to read on a phone. A responsive format would be great!
Ex: For fishing, Display all local rules and regs for a body of water. You can search by a region. Then narrow it down to bodies of water. Have an option to enter a zip-code. Include not just a fish identification portion as to which fish you can take but limits as well. Same with hunting. User friendly (and responsive) format for hunts. An option saying based on your current licenses, this is what you can hunt this week. (Ie: person wants to hunt cotton tail, but dove is open too and jackrabbit and deer but at ‘x’ price and with a ticket.
Notifications of winning a drawing would be cool too!
The app should help inform in an easy and clean way and take some of the work out of planning a hunt or fishing trip.
Links to videos on how to care for game after it is possessed would be helpful too. Think ‘old outdoorsman teaching young rising outdoorsman’. Pass on the legacy via the app too!
We have 21st century technology I say we use it! Let’s make it easier for hunters and fishermen alike to go out so more will want to! That means more money for the DWR overall! HOORAH!
Link duck stamp/blue card to app?
Overall I’ve found his app to be very helpful! The maps outline your exact region so you know where your boundaries are if ever in question and access to shooing hours is easily accessible. The reason for 3 star review is it needs a little more. Having your license on your phone is great and paper-free, but I still have to carry my hard copy with me because of the federal duck stamp. It is a bit pointless to use the app in this case. Finding a way to take and add a picture of signed stamp to the app or a picture of hard copy license with duck stamp on it or a link of purchased stamp would be excellent! Same with the blue card. In terms of licenses, the point of this app is to have all licenses together and easily accessible -which it is. But why use it when you need to bring hard copies along anyway for proof. Just a few thoughts that I hope is taken into consideration.
Does what it's supposed to...
I wish you could renew your license through the app. That would be great.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
