What is a fishing app?

A fishing app is a mobile or web application that helps users find nearby fishing locations and fish. Fishing apps usually include an interactive map that enables users to search for specific fishing spots, such as lakes or rivers, or view the relative popularity of different spots. Fishing apps also typically include information about local species of fish and helpful tips for novice anglers.

Fishing apps have a lot in common with wildlife-related apps such as bird watching apps, hunting apps, and animal conservation apps. Some of the most popular fishing applications are Zomato, Angler's Almanac, FishBrain, and Sky Fishers.

Here are some recent fishing app examples built with Crowdbotics:

How to successfully grow your fishing application

A fishing app can attract new users by making it easy for users to find the information that they are looking for. Fishing apps need to be highly informative, and they must also provide a high level of interactivity if the user is going to be willing to share it with their friends on social media.

Risks and challenges of building a fishing application

An app designed to facilitate the sale of fishing equipment faces risks related to product quality and consumer claims. You will want to ensure that you carefully check inventory, verify customer identity, provide customer support for returns and exchanges, and build in mechanisms for fraud detection when handling payments.
