This is the ultimate all-in-one fishing app - it manages all your fishing memories plus it allows you to research and plan your fishing days. You can record your fishing events, catches, and fishing spot locations. Adding the latest catch is done within seconds. Whether your focus is on planning your next fishing day based on weather and solunar periods, keeping a trophy gallery and fishing journal, or statistics and research of your past fishing events, this is the application you need.
Along with the basic facts like fish specy, time, amount, length, and weight you can add additional information.

✓ Catch List. When you want to get a printout of your catches, the application will assist you to store it, manage it, and email it! You can easily export all catch information in the highly compatible CSV (comma separated values) and KML (location data - keyhole markup language) file format and perform your custom statistics on your data. Optionally, catches can be exchanged between devices and fishers - via e-mail and Dropbox.
✓ Research and Planning. Did you dream of documenting and planning your fishing spots? This application allows you to visually lay out your fishing water with symbols of your fishing spots that you can place on the map and give a name. Optionally, it allows you to share your fishing spot information with a friend via e-mail and Dropbox. Your friend can import them from the e-mail attachment with just one click.
Shapes and other important place marks in your fishing water can be drawn and designed comfortably on your desktop computer using Google Maps or Google Earth and later imported into the Fishing Friend app as overlay on all maps.
✓ GPS. If you get lost while afield, you can ask the application to show your exact position in relation to your fishing spots, allowing you to navigate to your spot.
✓ Weather and Solunar Periods. The Fishing Friend simplifies your life. It gives you all information about weather, sun, moon, solunar periods, including a 4 day forecast in one view.
