Fish tracking app for all fishing enthusiasts

About

About

Peerbits is proud to develop an application for all fishing enthusiasts. It records fishing data with the help of a hardware device connected via Bluetooth. It allows you to capture photos of the fish and thereby fills all the vital data by itself. It saves your time as you don’t need to note all the information on a book. In a nutshell it makes the fishing experience more convenient.

The data filled includes Date, Time, Location, Weather, Wind speed, Temperature, Barometer, Wind Direction, Lunar Phase. Our developers used 3rd party API to extract all the above data. To capture the photo, it is imperative for the user to open the app. Along with these benefits it also helps in finding nearby locations for fishing. Secondly, user can determine total fish weight and share it on social media sites.

Challenges

Challenge

The client wanted us to integrate a fishing stick with the app which can click pictures of fishes. So, we had to integrate the hardware with the mobile app and secondly the app had to obtain the pictures clicked by the stick. In addition, the app had to fill all the relevant data of the fish by itself.

Solution

Solution

Team of our developers created a Bluetooth address for the fishing stick. The App would detect this Bluetooth address and connect it with the app. Apart from that we used various APIs to get details like Date, Time, Location, Weather, Wind speed, Temperature, Barometer, Wind Direction, Lunar Phase.

Earlier a Fisher had to write all these details in a book which consumed so much time. These APIs fills all the details automatically saving considerable amount of time.

Integrate Fishing Stick to the App

As discussed earlier, this app allows you to integrate your fishing stick with the mobile app via Bluetooth. It also allows you to click pictures of the fishes caught. You can view and save pictures captured by the stick on the app.
