Catchability Has Released a Definitive Free iPhone App for Aussie Fishos

January 25, 2014 Apps No Comments Email Email

Catchability has released a definitive free iPhone app for Aussie fishos.
Catchability for iPhone has been designed in Australia specifically for fishing in Australia and includes hand drawn pictures of fish species, maps of where they can be caught, bag limits for each state and live weather and tide information.562640

The app allows users to:
Follow a fish
Follow the species you like to catch – who’s catching them and where?

Follow a spot
Find out where to go fishing near you and which fish have been caught there. Enter spots of your own.

Follow a person
What are your friends catching and where?

Who’s caught the biggest, longest or the most fish?

Weather and tides
Check the weather and tides before you go and for the next 6 days. Save your favourite places for future checks.

Bag limits and pictures562643
Identify fish and check the current bag and size limits.

Bragging rights
Share your catches on social media (if you wish).

In addition, Catchability have teamed up with well known independent marine biologist Dr Julian Pepperell who will be involved in ongoing analysis of data created from the app about many aspects of fish populations, including:

  • Seasonal appearance of fish at different locations
  • How the fishery reacts to news of ‘runs’ of fish in different situations
  • ‘Peaks’ and ‘troughs’ in catches of certain species through time
  • Sizes of fish of different species being caught by users of the application (it is anticipated that this will be especially useful to monitor catches of the larger ‘trophy’ sized fish – an indicator of health of a fishery).
  • Correlating time of day of catches with tidal movements and day of the month with moon phases.

Catchability for iPhone available on the App Store:

Catchability has been featured in “What’s hot” by Apple for the past few weeks and has reached number 5 in the sports app download chart.
