Deeper – Smart FishFinder
iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com
Concept and Functionality:
Whether you’re a hardcore angler or a weekend getaway type of fisher(wo)man, Deeper – Smart FishFinder is sure to become your new favorite fishing buddy. Before I “dive” into the app review, I want to mention that the app itself doesn’t turn your phone into a sonar-based fish finder. Instead, you’ll have to purchase the $199 device separately.
However, you do not need the actual fish finder to use the app; the rest of the features except sonar input are available to use. The device itself functions by communicating with your iPhone and/or iPad via Bluetooth, and all you have to do is cast the device out on the water like you would a lure.
Once the device is in the water, a wealth of data will be available for you to view from the comfort of the shore or your boat. You can see where the fish are, how far below the surface they’re located, and even the terrain of the ground. Though I’m not sure how well the Deeper device stacks up against other fish finders, I’m sure the device holds its own in terms of accuracy and data collection.
The best part about the Deeper – Smart FishFinder app is that all of the information is displayed in real-time, giving you an edge and increasing your chances of catching “the big one”.
As I mentioned before, those who don’t have the Deeper device can still use the Deeper – Smart FishFinder app for tools like fishing weather forecasts and dynamic fishing logs. While the device completes the Deeper experience, it’s remarkable to see that the app is still functional without having to sink almost $200 into the device.
To list every feature available in Deeper – Smart FishFinder would be to consume an entire site page. That’s a good thing, of course! In addition to detailed logs and weather information, Deeper – Smart FishFinder even allows you to save your favorite fishing spots on a map, as well as view points of interest such as parking and picnic spots.
What happens if you catch the king of the pond? Deeper – Smart FishFinder allows you to take photos of your fish within the app and share them with Facebook, Twitter, and even Google+. This not only helps you keep a record of your catch, but also attain bragging rights among your fishing pals.
Deeper – Smart FishFinder can be downloaded from the App Store for free and doesn’t include in-app purchases to unlock the plethora of features available. As I mentioned above, the actual fish finder device can be “netted” for $200 and is currently out of stock, so patience is a must. However, serious and casual anglers who are looking for a technological advantage will certainly enjoy the world’s first fish finder for smartphones!
Deeper – Smart FishFinder requires iOS 5.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
