Who will benefit from this app?
Really, ⊗ Fishidy is for anyone who is interested in fishing. ⊗
⇒ Experienced fishermen will benefit from swapping stories, and keeping up to date on the conditions of their favorite places. Also, you can post to, “The Braggin’ Board” to compete in weekly photo contests.
⇒ For newbies, like me, the app provides guidance, tips, and inspiration that you need sometimes after hiking up to a 7,200 foot elevation lake and coming away with nothing but a lost lure. The view was gorgeous though.
Main Features of Fishidy App
⇒ The main page of Fishidy is the “Activity Stream” that looks like your typical social media feed. The difference is that this stream shows posts from the catches of fellow fishermen. The default view is a general feed that shows posts from app users all over the USA. However, you can select the stream to only show posts for areas that you are interested in. I selected to follow only posts made in the areas around Northern California that I want to try out.
⇒ The app allows you to search and follow waterways across the US, post and record catches, follow other anglers, and share advice info and questions about your favorite fishing holes. I loved these features, because they gave me an advanced view of what I had to look forward to.
⇒ Fishidy app has an interactive map that shows the locations of fishing areas, and shows where other users have recorded a catch. This was super helpful to me as I was planning where I was fishing. I was able to see where fish were biting recently, and know what species have been caught. If you are an experienced angler you know what areas are popular, so you can sneak off to find your own private spot.
