SmartOut Ontario - android app for outdoorsmen; Free android app for outdoorsmen with hunting and fishing seasons and maps

Hi everybody.

I've created a smart phone app (Android only) to help with fishing and hunting seasons and maps. Basically it has:

- Map of Wildlife Management Units (WMU)
- Hunting seasons by game category (Migratory Birds, Deer e.t.c.)
- Hunting seasons by WMU - all seasons for all game in a given WMU
- Map of Fisheries Management Zones (FMZ)
- Fishing Seasons by Zone (FMZ)
- Additional Fishing Opportunities (locations displayed on the map where known)
- Exceptions to zone regulations (locations displayed on the map where known)

Long click anywhere on the map allows to open seasons for this location. Hunting and fishing seasons are presented in familiar format, as in official regulation summaries, but at the same time much easier to look up. Ontario residents hunting seasons are shown by default (can be changed to non-residents in Settings).

The app is about 10 MB download (from Google Play) and it's free! :wink: Check it out - maybe you will find it useful.

For someone who isn't techie in the least i guess the iPhone isn't an android? Thought some of the samsung phones were but as i noted, not a techie here. My phones does all sorts of stuff i haven't used yet, still working on the texting, emails and actually calling people

I just got my first cell phone. It is a Samsung but I am still trying to figure it out. It uses the Android platform but at 64 yrs old i am having problems trying to figure it out. I do have a little techie experience but not with cell phones. I will just use the hunting/fishing guide books for now.

You are correct. My app is for Android (Samsung) only and does not work on iPhone. The reason is that Apple requires Apple computer to create apps and I dont have one..

Thank you! ;) I'm not giving up. The next feature I'm working on will be ability to save locations (marks) locally on your phone. And be able to share location with your friend..

you can do that now on the phone saving locations with gps co-ords on google maps eg bear baits then measure straight line distance between baits
but it would be a nice addition to your ap .. maybe the ability to add a note to each saved location

Agreed, you can. I just dont want the google to know where my bear sites are! :) I'm a bit of a privacy junkie. I'd like to have my marks just on my phone and perhaps on my home computer for backup.
