Great idea, but the app needs LOTS of help.
Been using the app for a couple years now. I like the maps and the social media part as well! Best fishing app for none!
FISHIDY isn’t a bad service. It definitely needed some polish and got some with the new updates. However, there are still some bugs to work out. Additionally, I’d like to see more improvements for uploading photos and adding more information. I’d love for Fishidy to have a fish log which tracks data that I enter. Based on my previous years worth of data, it could help me plan my tournaments. Also when logging fish, how about a total weight or multiple species entry? If I’m holding a smallmouth and largemouth in the same pic, I can’t enter as both or a collective weight. I still love FISHIDY and you should try it out. It’s like FB for fisherman.
At first I felt the app was unusable but after some great customer service it works great for my type of fishing anyway.
After reading the list of premium features and checking out the prices, I opted for a 1-year subscription to save money. Big mistake! It turns out most lakes and some entire states have no premium data to speak of. Company very kindly helped me get a refund, because I live in Colorado, and the lakes I’m interested in have no premium content at all. It’s pretty hard to figure out how to request a refund for a subscription on the App store, unfortunately, but Fishidy app team went out of their way to guide me through the process. While attempting to download nonexistent premium data, I also encountered a really hard-to-use interface for outlining a region on a map to download the nonexistent data. Some ESRI feature or other. They really need to get rid of that—especially if there’s no data there to begin with. I hope they can improve these things, because I would love an app that does what this does in my area.
The feed function is a big reason why I downloaded the app. Very good app.
I got this app for a large lake near my house because I had no idea how or where to fish it. Turns out to be way more useful than I thought and soon got the premium version.
I have nothing but great things to say about Fishidy. I’d recommend it to EVERYONE who is serious about fishing. I received great help from customer support whenever I had questions. Grand Slam!
Am a premium member and am not receiving the benefits. Have emailed the service desk 2-3 times and have not gotten a reply. App use to work now it just gives me the basic stuff even tho I’m getting charged 9.99 a month. Also says I’m a basic member. Think a refund should be in store for the months that i was unable to use it.
Difficult to navigate site. I upgraded to premium but am regretting my choice.
