iFishLog app review: record your catches

Reviews

Introduction

iFishLog is a simple and rather disappointing app for iPhone and iPad that provides some very basic functionality enabling you to record some of the details of the fish you catch such as the time, date, location, and so on.

This is definitely one of the most uninspiring apps I’ll be writing about this week but I thought I’d run a quick review for it so that you guys know to steer clear of this kind of lackluster development; there be little more than minnows in this here pond!

Awful Angling

Making a rather dull addition to the Sports category of the App Store is this development that has been designed with the intention of allowing you to make a basic log of all of your fishing exploits within a single interface so that you don’t have to use the old pen-and-paper approach.

The kind of information you can enter into this app includes things like the location, time, and type of fish you’ve caught, and you can also see your location data displayed as a pin on a map courtesy of Google Maps.

Lacking in Features

iFishLog also provides fields where you can input the size and your own custom notes about the fish you catch, but that’s about where the features end I’m afraid.

I’d much rather see recommended fishing spots, seasonal information, and other tidbits added to make this app more comprehensive; it doesn’t look like this outdated app will receive that kind of update so you’re probably better off paying a little more for, well, a lot more!

Pros & Cons

Pros

  • Create a basic log of all of your fishing exploits within a single interface
  • Record the location, time, and type of fish with ease
  • Include the size and your own custom notes about the fishes you catch
  • See your location data displayed as a pin on a map courtesy of Google Maps

Cons                                              

  • There are far more comprehensive and professionally presented fishing apps in the Sports and Lifestyle categories of the App Store so I personally think that you’ll be better off going for a more modern development in this genre

Final Words

iFishLog is an uninteresting fisherman’s app for iPhone and iPad that really doesn’t deliver a whole lot in terms of content or presentation so I’d recommend avoiding it and saving your time and money for something a little better.
