Australian Fishing app

AFTER more than a year of research, writing and production, Perth-based developer Rusty Telegraph has released The Australian Fishing App exclusively for the Android platform.

The developer says the app is the first truly interactive Australian fishing app built for Android, allowing users to record and share their catches with the rest of the country. It also contains location logging, recreational fishing rules, angling tips and the most comprehensive fish guide available on any mobile platform.

Users can log their catches in as much or as little detail as they wish and upload them to a central server. Shared catches can be viewed on a sortable list or map, allowing all users to see where and how fish are being caught around the country. Catches can also be shared via Facebook.

The species guide has taken over 15 months to write and explores Australia’s most commonly encountered fish, shark and ray species in depth. It contains extensive information about each species, including common names, range and distribution, size, identification notes and eating qualities. Most importantly, it describes how to catch them, detailing habits, habitat and environment, recommended fishing methods, best baits and lures, preferred gear, rigs and tackle, as well as other miscellaneous notes.

Recreational fishing rules are provided for each species, unique for each state and territory. Over 100,000 words in length, the guide currently contains over 220 species and is growing constantly.

The Australian Fishing App also includes a location log. Fishing spots can be saved quickly and simply, and may be set by using maps or by the user’s current GPS position. Locations can be edited later when time permits.

Also included are a set of fishing hints and tips, aimed primarily at the beginning angler.

The Australian Fishing App is now available at the Google Play Store for the introductory price of $2.99. In its first few days of release, it has proven very popular. At the time of writing, it is currently the highest-selling new sports app in the Australian Play Store, and is already one of the five top-selling sports apps overall.
