Thread: Shooting / cull record app for I phone

  1. #1

    Shooting / cull record app for I phone

    Hi, just wondered if anyone Is using either G4EMA or iGamebook shooting apps and have you had success with them, also wondered If they can be used with ipad-2...I hve been told that apple are only supporting apps that are compatible with retina iphone5...Ta

    I've got it on my iPhone 5 and it's working a treat. Use an ipad2 to review the trips on the G4ema website with no problems

    I have it but haven't been totally impressed
    it failed to log one trip and I find the lack of Onboard history or current log irritating
    i end up logging the same thing twice in the lamping set up
    li did email him about the issues but heard nothing back (several weeks)

    i kind of expect more from paid for apps

    I've been looking at them. Not very good in my eyes. The land mapping expects you to go round the boundry of all your land. It would take me about 3 weeks to walk the boundrys of my land. Plus can't see me going to my phone everything I shoot a rabbit or crow! My phone would be covered is crap in no time plus it would waste time. Would be better if you could draw a line on a map of all your land and mark where things are on it. When you get home you could mark where you shot things. I wouldn't waste your money. No sure I like my land and kills being stored online too.

    +1 exactly what I do on my stalking trips, I have a B&W photo copy map and mark on any sightings, cull, or notes of interest numbered 1,2,3 etc
    Then on the back list along with times, weather, wind, etc. into plastic sleeve & file, keep it simple

    I have G4ema on an Android HTC One X and it works fine.

    only if you want a boundary marked manually
    Nothing to stop you marking a boundary on Google Earth and saving it in the same format as a G4MMA file

    I use it to mark locations of rabbits and foxes as part of a golf course control. means I can email 4 people an update on where and what i have shot. They just flick the Google Earth file onto an open Earth page and it pops up on the map

    you don't need to store the data online, once the app is set up you can just save to file on your PC

    my problem was it didnt bloody log in the first place when it was telling me it had!

    Interesting, two thoughts jump out. I've got paper cull records going back 40 years and I don't see any website lasting 4 years, so I would suggest that you need to have a plan to back up your data and migrate it off the website/app when it stops being supported. Regards JCS

    I have used G4ema and I think it is totally rubbish, it has failed to log numerous trips.

    The app I can HIGHLY recommend is iHunt Journal.

    You can use it to do the following:
    - Set annual cull figures for different permissions.
    - Record your culls, photo, location, weather conditions, moon conditions etc
    - Mark all your highseats, trail cameras etc. With highseats you can mark which direction the wind they are usable from.
    - You can use it to plan a trip, so it will take a weather reading and let you know which highseats would be best.
    - Export it all as a CSV file so you can back it up on your computer easily.
    - All the data is visible on the app.
    - It will record your income/out goings from hunting.
    - Tell you the sun rise/set times
    - You can record sightings of scraps, wallows etc.
    - It will even range find for you. You mark 2 points on the map and it tells you the distance!!!!

    It basically does everything you could ever ask for. It is not cheap when you buy all the add-ons but it is so worth it.

    I have spoken to the author and I have asked him to add the following:

    - Tag number for the carcass
    - GPS tracking for when you are stalking.

    Mmmm, positives and negatives also alternatives, as has been said a paper copy Is good as It Is permanent, I was thinking It would be better to embrace technology but probably better to stick with the A5 notebook for the time being, that said Eggy s programme looks good...Thanks all
