Documenting the Experience
Our first app is a simple one everyone is going to need out fishing, for both beginners and veterans. A weather application from Apalon Apps is going to get you right where you need to be. Outside in the water, many fisherman know how important the weather and rain can be for getting a successful catch or going home with nothing. You can see a detailed forecast for your favorite area, or check out some other area’s weather if you’re the traveling type.
The Fishidy app allows for its users to use many features that can record their catches and create a database about their fishing time on the water. You’ll be able to share them with your other angler friends and share real time locations where you got your catch. It also allows you access many tips from the professionals and see other people’s catches where you can compare and contrast the catch.
