3500 Reasons to Fish With Your iPhone in BC(May 18, 2011)
EDMONTON, ALBERTA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/18/11 -- The App Door just launched their latest app iFish BC. Available for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, the app features detailed fishing information on over 3500 lakes, ponds and reservoirs in British Columbia, Canada.
"This puts a wealth of knowledge and tools at your fingertips," said Randy Chamzuk, President of The App Door. "There's something for anglers of all ages and skill levels, even if you're not in BC at the moment."
The app's simple interface allows you to easily search for lakes by name or via proximity search. You can even find a particular species of fish within a certain area around you. Once you view a lake, a variety of information is readily available including; fish species, location map, local weather conditions, depth charts and a lunar calendar for the best time to fish. It even contains BC's Freshwater Fishing Regulations Synopsis that's viewable without a cellular connection.
The idea didn't just come out of the blue; iFish Alberta has been available on the App Store since October and has recently been featured in Apps for the Great Outdoors. Its success reached the number one paid sports app in all of Canada, and still holds a top position today. iFish Saskatchewan also recently launched and currently ranks in the top twenty.
iFish BC contains some great extras too; images, descriptions and angling techniques for many fish species found in BC waters, while videos and diagrams show how to cast, clean fish, and tie knots. An ever updating Essentials area is full of references, links and contacts.
According to Chamzuk, one feature that is very popular with anglers is the ability to give live reports on the lakes within the app. Daily feedback is being received about fishing activity, water conditions, and successful baiting techniques and can be accessed from the app or the iFishBC.com website.
With future apps aimed at waters throughout North America, a fish log and hotspot tool, Chamzuk concludes "It can be used as a reference tool that's always growing. We've put together a ton of knowledge and fisherman tools into one resource that fits in your tackle box."
