Bill Dance

Price: Free

Bill Dance by Bill Dance Outdoors helps you to become the very best angler possible. You'll be taking lessons and tips from the world famous Bill Dance, a well-known bass fisherman. Whether you're an avid fisher or you just take part in the sport from time to time there is plenty to learn here. This iPad app has the goal of teaching you how to catch more and bigger bass.

The app was updated on May 7, 2013 and is available in English.


User Experience
Upon launching the app you'll find it has been divided into a few different sections to make navigation easy for you. From here you can easily follow the menus to the section that interests you. The user interface design feels a bit simple and bland and could definitely do with a sleeker look.


It should be noted just what a legend Bill Dance is when it comes to bass fishing. For those unfamiliar with his history he has been fishing for more than 40 years and is known as a fishing legend. He has his own fishing show, "Bill Dance Outdoors," providing tips and information. This app is meant to act as an extension to his show so you can enjoy his tips and information no matter where you are.

Features of this app include learning about fishing tips from the master himself, learn how to tie fishing knots, a boating safety section filled with tips, and a product guide. The product guide is supported by Bill's sponsors and you'll find information on all the latest gear and equipment.

You'll want to check out the photo gallery where you can post pictures of the fish you've caught and make notes of its size etc.

If you're unsure of what the fish is that you've caught you can use the FisLoPedia to discover what it is.


Update Info
In the latest version, 2.1, there have been some new updates for a more polished complete look and feel.


Customer Ratings and Feedback Comments
The app currently has 41 customer ratings with an average rating of four and a half out of five stars. The most recent update seems to have solved all the minor issues that were plaguing users resulting in some very happy customers. However there is a consensus that calls for some interactive features and video.


Personal Comments by Reviewer
Upon launching this app it’s a bit of a disappointment visually, because of that I wasn’t really expecting much. I found myself pleasantly surprised with the content, features, and ease of use. This is a case where you really shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. I do agree with users though videos would be a great addition to this app. Other than that it’s hard to find much to complain about. Because Bill Dance is such a legend you’ll find yourself reading everything there is in your quest to become a more successful angler.



  • Tips, advice, and knowledge from fishing legend Bill Dance
  • A way to look up fish to learn more about a particular one
  • A photo gallery to display the catches you’re most proud of
  • The latest update has addressed all the bugs resulting in smooth performance


  • Very under-whelming in the looks and features department
  • Needs to include interactive features and video, feels incomplete without

For: iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad with iOS 4.3 or later. Bill Dance is optimized for iPhone 5.
