    this has been a great read.................
     
    i like the sound of the app, unfortunately i cant find it on windows apps. i personally would have no problem sharing my fav swims or spots, i do anyway. when did fishing become so competitive? . who cares what the guy in the next swim is doing. if he is having a great session does it really matter if he spent ages crashing a lead around or used an app. what does it matter to your fishing. its like anything in life, do it how you want, is it cheating to get your info the easy way? if you want to then thats up to you, if you dont then dont download the app. fishing is what you make it. some choose to fish oldschool, others with bait boats, fish finders and all the bling. does this effect me in the next swim.....i couldnt give a rats bottom. it makes me laugh somtimes how other anglers will comment or get the hump over anothers fishing, take a chill pill and get on with your own fishing, you will have more fun.

    Working in a tackle shop, the Fox is the better seller. One thing though, we have had problems getting the latest stock of Supa Brolly's in, as Fox had no stock!

    Considering it took the FBI a few months, and a court case against apple, to crack an iPhone I think you'll be safe in the knowledge that no one will be stealing your data.
     
     
    No, it won't. 
     
     
     
     
    If there were a world record for how small a straw you could try and clutch then some of the nay sayers comments in this thread would have smashed it!!!
     
    If someone doesn't want to use the app, that's perfectly fine. I know a lot of people who won't buy a kindle, preferring a paper book, same difference, but they don't try to come up with a load of old pants about others stealing their books
     
    But the majority of negative comments on her are complete and utter tripe (I'm not talking about your post, Beanz CM, I'm definitely looking at you (Although not you alone ). But I've learned to take everything you say with a pinch of salt. You will purposefully disagree with something just to create debate, whether you actually believe it or not ).
     
    There will undoubtedly be swims mapped by the Fox paid anglers that will be for sale at a later date. What do you expect. Fox are a business who's job is to make money...
     
    But no-one will be stealing the information that you have uploaded on your own swims. And, quite frankly, it's a bit arrogant for people to think that a multi million pound tackle company would risk their reputation and a mahoosive fine (Under the data protection act) to steal swim mapping details when there is just as much chance of them being woefully wrong as there is right.
     
    It's only a fishing app. Not skynet

    I think it's a great app, also if your a good enough friend to some people and you've visited a day ticket before and done well then you have a friend going there then you can give them a helping hand. A) if they want it and b) if YOU choose to share it. I'd gladly share any decent info I've gained to my carpy friends for day tickets.
    The only place I'd be a bit more reserved would be a syndicate for example where you've done a tonne of homework on the place and you've worked too hard to give it all away. But even then I'd happily give friends a few pointers,maybe I'm daft.
    Used the app the weekend and was nice to have, never seen any fish top so never got to use that part of the app but can imagine on a syndicate over time that could come in very useful if a pattern starts emerging.
    10 out of 10 for me!

    I have noticed a Lot of people commenting on the "how it used to be" and "doing it yourself/ your own work" I would hazard a guess at most use rigs that they didn't invent, baits that they didn't make/grow themselves, carbon rods ( bought from the tackle shops) so let's be honest technology/progression/ evolution plays a part in every single persons fishing to one extent or another, if it's not for you fine that's cool but if it is...then crack on and use it to its potential and most of all ENJOY our time on the bank and the fish that we catch no matter what tech we may or may not be using to aid us!
    Tight lines gentlemen

    As explained earlier on in the thread by a couple of people, it's not instant results oriented - it's a way of recording information that YOU find. Just like you would if you were to write it down on a bit of paper!
    It seems to be an efficient way of storing info and data about your chosen lakes.
    Your findings can only be passed on to others if YOU want to.
    Should we ban computers and word processors because it can all be done with pen and paper. Hang on a minute though, I wonder what they said when pen and paper were invented??? Flamin technology!! I'm sticking with chalk and slate!!! Lol

    I've had a few non fishing friends install this and then delete it. I've still got the swim credits as a result. So if you want additional swims, rather than paying ask your friends and family to install. The trick seems to be opening the app once installed.

    I've got a few camo items. I didn't buy them because I thought they were going to make me invisible on the bank, I bought them because I liked them. If someone wants to spend their own money on something they like, what's the bloomin problem? It's up to themselves and don't have to answer to anybody for it. At the end of the day we buy off the tackle companies, they generally sell dark green, camo and whatever else, so your just going to buy what you fancy. That was a fair few years ago when I bought the camo stuff I did and I've now gone off it and buy plain green stuff. Again, buying it because I like it, not because I or anyone I'm sure believes its going to make them invisible on the bank.
    If that we're the case I'd be buying clothes to match the colour of my sofa and sit there all night doing jack whenever I feel like it safe in the knowledge I can't be seen
