What are users saying about What Fish UK

by K####:

Good for fish identification.

by H####:

Great identification and rig choice AP

by C####:

5 star

by F####:

Must have for any sea anglers. From novice to expert

by Y####:

All you need. Thanks

by W####:

Just a suggestion maybe a little more detail on the current records would be a good addition

by U####:

My 1 issue is. On the smaller species can you add natural baits and rigs please as well as LRF rigs and baits. But this is a great app

by I####:

Brilliant app! Exactly what i've been looking for and i would of gave it 5 stars, if it had picutres of the rigs it was describing when you went onto them.

by Q####:

The app is actually really good my only criticism would be the number of rigs. I would ideally like to see more than just one so I can have a selection. Been through about 10 fish and all of them suggest either a pennel rig and a 3 hook flapper.

by M####:

A great app, easy identification and good photos. Three criticisms - would be nice if MLS sizes and some sustainability info was included. To post a recipe for bluefin tuna without any kind of information on its sustainability is irresponsible. The photos can sometimes fail to load. Inclusion of advertising on a paid app is quite irksome and shouldn't be happening really. Nonetheless, otherwise very good.

by X####:

Great app, a must have for the angler

by Y####:


by J####:

This app is great but lacks the ability to view photos and images when not in range of wifi or fast mobile data signals. This app could be perfect with the addition of an option to download images for identifying the fish in your chosen location so that you can still identity fish without the need for Internet access.

by R####:

But would like to know how I am still being charged £2 every month after purchasing the application I didn't see anything in the terms and conditions before purchase or I wouldn't have bothered. So would like to know what is going on ASAP cheers

by A####:

It is very good and has a lot of fish information but could involve some information about different rigs.

by Z####:

Very pleased with this, a great buy! Now to catch some fish and try the recipes...

by W####:

Works a treat, what every angler needs

by D####:

So for the price I paid I got a lot of pictures of fish and some spiel, wheres the rig data and other MORE usefull info. Oh and if your going to tell people you cant eat a species I would like to know WHY not, is it poisonous or merely taste awfull, because some people who assume it is because it may just taste awfull might like to still try it and then end up dead !. Oh well. I would like to see the rig data implemented, and more usefull stuff than just pretty pics I can google on my phone anyway.

by V####:

Love this app just needs rigs making apps now

by U####:

Couple of things wrong, ie Halibut is an edible fish. But in the main a great app.

by I####:

Only criticism so far if you want it right, is that it shouldn't be called 'latin name' but 'scientific name' as some scientific names are Greek. A free bit of Marine Biology BSc for you there ;-)

by T####:

I got this ap for my samsung galaxy note and at first it wouldnt work but the developers got in touch with me and found a fix straight away and now it works like a dream. The customer service is 100% cant fault it at all. The ap itself is perfect for any fisherman. It helps identify each fish and tells u the locations it can be found and best bait to use and it even gives u a tasty receipe should u decide to keep ur catch. Best ap Ive ever downloaded well worth the money! !!!

by L####:

Bought this app as I'm new to sea fishing and have not had a problem identifying the fish I have been catching. Great information and easy to use. 5 stars guys!

by S####:

Good app with lots of useful information.1 thing I would change would be to add a reason as to why some species are inedible.other than that great

by G####:

Very good app find it very useful

by Q####:

Brilliant app, so useful

by B####:

This is a great app and is just what I need!

by M####:

5 star

by P####:

Fantastic value. Great to have this amount of information at hand when fishing.

by X####:

My 1 issue is. On the smaller species can you add natural baits and rigs please as well as LRF rigs and baits. But this is a great app

by O####:

Great, easy to use app. Recommended to all sea fishermen

by K####:

I like the way it mixes ID with similar species and recommends rigs and baits

by H####:

My last review said this app was missing the mini species records but it has since been updated I now give this app 5 stars as it is nothing short of excellent

by N####:

This app is a must have for all fisherman. Not only does it help identify what you have caught, also gives you some cracking recipes! Latest update makes this app even better. Lots of great information. First app that meets all my fishing needs. Whoever gives this less than a 5 star rating is clueless!

by E####:

I love this app so simple to use but with all info on all species and fishing tips pure brilliant......5stars all the way

by C####:

Excellent App, can't fault it & has helped me catch many more species of fish....proper job.

by F####:

Puts so much information in my pocket I feel like a fishing guru.

by Y####:

Advertising taking up screen space in a paid app is unforgivable! A lot of repetition. Species search by location would be nice. Much room for improvements but overall useful. Lure galleries ???

by J####:

I'm a long term user of this app, and have seen it through several updates. the last update has included a bit of activity related advertising, after the initial irritation, and after spending a couple of days going through updated info, I'll say it's definitely worth putting up with. The massively expanded knowledge base is incredible, most of the fishing books you buy show you pictures of fish, and how to tie a trace or two, and the author's life story- not here! This app gives you the information needed to target specific species with baits/rigs and rough info as to what fish can be found where, tactics for shore, kayak, and boat fishing (for each fish covered!) diagrams, photos to assist in fish ID, heck, it even gives you recipes for your catch! Simply put, there is no other, book or app out there like this- if you fish the sea, even if you're just a casual fisherman this app is worth a look, and worth your money.
