Fishing and hunting are pastimes that countless people enjoy. The only thing better than catching a big fish or hunting an elusive trophy deer is showing off your accomplishment to friends and family.
What if you could share your hunt with like-minded individuals around the country?
HowBig lets everyone easily share their prize fish, deer, and more with others who also hunt and fish.
This mini social networking app includes plenty of features, from an event calendar to a comprehensive outfitter directory.
Concept and Functionality:
HowBig, an iPhone and iPad app by Sylvain Analytics, Inc, does a terrific job of accomplishing a very specific purpose; helping outdoorsmen and women connect with others by sharing photos, joining groups, and competing in events.
In order to use the app you have to create an account using your email address. The registration process is pretty simple and you’ll be exploring the app in no time.
HowBig sports an interface that’s easy to use and navigate.
The home screen view lets you toggle between member upload by day, week, month, and all time. You’re able to see the location of the upload, as well, which makes it fun to try and find great hunting and fishing spots nearby.
While HowBig is an excellent photo sharing app, it also includes an extensive outfitter directory that lets users find sanctuaries and more by state and animal.
This is great if you’re someone who likes to hunt or fish for sport and you’re looking for a way to find outfitters in a particular location.
I do want to mention that the developers are running a contest for the user with the highest rated photo within the app.
The winner receives a 3-day trip for two to Rancho De Chavez, NM for a buffalo hunting experience including meals, flight, transportation, and room.
This contest ends August 30th. In order to rate a photo you must double-tap it, then tap the stars.
HowBig includes tons of great features for all users, such as an event calendar that shows the location and details for hunting and fishing events around Canada and the U.S. I noticed that the calendar doesn’t include a filter feature, but you can use the search bar at the top to find events by state.
HowBig lets users interact with each other by double-tapping on photos to see additional details about a user’s catch or hunt. This includes weight, size, location, and more. You can even leave a comment on a user’s upload, which is definitely a plus.
HowBig is available to download from the App Store for free and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad. There are no in-app purchases to worry about.
Overall, HowBig is a great app for anyone who loves hunting and fishing. It’s perfect for browsing what others have caught, exploring events, and finding places to go on your next adventure.
HowBig requires iOS 8.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
