App usage 1/5
By 0924 speaking
Cannot get app to work half the time, also does not let me add any of my licenses so I can view them. Continually says cannot find customer info due to unable to connect with server. Dissatisfied!!!!!!
Gave wrong liscense. 2/5
Ordered a saltwater licese(as did my brother and father) and each one of us received a freshwater license. Called and got it fixed but needs to be fixed.
Total garbage 1/5
Would give it negative stars if I could. App is nothing more than a clumsy browser which interacts with the main FWC website, which is also garbage. Nothing in the app you can’t access from Safari. Worse, I tried creating an account for my minor child, and it tells me they are a non-resident, despite having the same address that I do. This cannot be edited via the app or the website. And I cannot purchase a resident fishing license for them now. And also cannot create a different account for them because it requires social security number (another security risk). The whole enterprise is a piece of crap.
Nice very good! 5/5
By Brian livin in the 305
Really good like it a lot! Valuable information and very handy!
Poor Effort 1/5
The WMA brochures only open the first page and you cannot view the rest of the pdf. This has been reported but ignored by Florida Fish and Wildlife. Very frustrating! Please fix!
Good start to a great app 4/5
By Florida Sportsman
I use this often. Keeping up with regulations can be tricky to say the least and
This app makes it easier to access. Updating and purchasing licenses is easy. Would like to see downloadable regulations. Also the WMA brochures only open the first page and cannot view the rest of the pdf. Please fix this. This is important for quick reference while hunting. I use fishing regulations as well. Would like to be able to save the PDFs to my phone so they can be organized and viewed in the native apple app and printed through AirPrint. Please update often and keep up the good work.
Not ready for prime time 2/5
Slow, buggy, trash. 1/5
Who’s paying what —not me 1/5
Don’t know what’s going on — I have not purchased anything from FWC last time I checked being over 65+did you hear me 65+ don’t anything from the state —nothing but my federal duck stamp because being 65+ does have it quirks
Great usage and potential, fix text bugs 4/5
By Egoistic stub
Love having my license stored. I wish there was an offline mode to store a recent copy of fishing regulations, etc.. Also when the app pulls data from the website some pages do not display correctly. (I’m on iphone 6+ running ios 11.2.6 for bug reporting purposes)
After looking through other reviews for this app, one mentioning formatting errors from 3 years ago. It would be nice to see this issue fixed as navigating fishing regulations is too difficult. Luckily there is the workaround with the ‘view full website’ button but at that point it’s much easier to just navigate the website from your own browser of choice and not from within the confines of the app window.
Not working 2/5
On my iPhone 7 with 11.2.6 the fishing times and sun rise and sun set do not work. Even though I have location services on. The app support link in the App Store goes to a page not found.
Doesn't work 1/5
Simply does not work since latest update. Maybe FWC needs yet a larger budget. UPDATE 8/17/2017: still does not work well on current iPhone with latest os. Specifically, for example, the fishing calendars and regulations downloads do not download.
Ok now 4/5
I had trouble buying my license with this app at first, but finally figured it out. The roll down menu confused me. You need to touch the words on the menu itself to enter. I was looking for a separate button. Once I got past this, it worked fine.
Great app.. BUT.... 3/5
Excellent app that I use, while fishing, for accessing licensing information and records, as well as tide and seas information. However, many features are not accessible when you are offshore, fishing, in an area without cellular coverage. So, when you're out in the reef, you do not have access to fish ID pictures from the linked fishing handbook, license information and size/quota information. These would be very convenient to have actually downloaded into a user's phone, for offshore retrieval. Additionally, the app would benefit greatly by having a fish identification library with large photos, rather than only relying on the small bitmaps in the linked regulation pamphlets...
Nice that you can have your fishing license available. Good boating regulation info, but not being able to locate a boat ramp is ridiculous! When I try to access "Find a boat ramp" it says, "the virtual display does not allow content to be displayed." Then why have the selection? Total waste! Really? I hope they can fix this and make it usable!
I can't use this app 1/5
When creating my account use my driver's license and not use my social security. This application can only login with your last four of your SSN. I can not use it. They have to fix.They have to give different alternatives for access to your information. I have my license and I can not put it in the app. Repair to be able to use and recommend it to my friends and family. Thank
Fishing License Plus 5/5
By Shane Lancaster
I love this app. The biggest thing for me is the ability to sync your most up to date licenses through FWC. No longer have to worry about bringing that flimsy fishing license receipt with you on the boat. Just show the cop the app!
5 stars before last update, but... 3/5
The previous version was more user friendly and much easier to navigate.
This is what convenience looks like 5/5
This has been a wonderful addition to our outdoor activities ..all license can be bought and stored for fast upload when asked to show them . This is a game changer in our family's book !!!
One happy Floridian
App doesn't work. 1/5
This app has never worked.
This app does everything you need it to do.
Everything you Need 5/5
Can't find license 1/5
I have several licenses and the app can't find even one.
Keep crashing. iPhone 4s 2/5
Especially on the fishing link.
What's the point 2/5
The best feature on the app is the license feature. Now you can always have your license with you. When I first downloaded the app I kept getting an error message when trying to add my license. I've reloaded the app multiple times, and just gave up and waited for an update hoping it would fix this bug. Finally an update, but no fix what's the point of changing the way the app looks and not fixing any problems. Fire your developers they are wasting your money.
Great new look but found 1 issue 2/5
The previous version allowed its users to store a local copy of their licenses on the phone. With this update it doesn't appear to be an option or available can you tell me if this is something you did intentionally or missed?
The app is requiring an internet connection anytime I try and bring up my licenses in the field. This creates an issue for sportsman like myself when we're in local WMAs that do not have cellular signal and have to produce a license for an officer. Previously we could just show the officer our license right on our phones. Some officers were even impressed this was a feature and it was super convenient since we all have our phones on us for pictures etc while hunting or fishing even in remote areas.
Great look 5/5
Great look on the new app so much easier to navigate.
Fix the sea state in toolbox part!!! 5/5
Everything works great in this app expect for the sea state in the tool box, i used this app for that exclusively please reroute to the correct website!!
Update:: with the new design everything works like it's suppose too A+++
Does not work on iPhone 6+ 1/5
App crashes as soon as you submit your data to add a license.
By Buckin Crazy
Why would it ask for your complete SS # when web page only ask for last 4 #s
Hunting quota 1/5
Can't print quotas from this app
Gives me nothing but error messages. I've deleted and reloaded, updated and rebooted , etc. great app when it worked but now its useless other that showing my license.
Works great on iPad mini 5/5
A good view into active licenses for the whole family. Allows updates to licenses through the app (not tried). Good spot to check tides, sun & moon times, feeding times, regulations for hunting and fishing.
Overall, a great tool that simplifies access to Florida's already well-done hunting and fishing information.
Thanks, FL FWC!
Broken app 2/5
Can't add my license. I can look it up from the fwc website. The app can't find it.
Fl salt water non resident 4/5
App works fine. Found my license immediately and filed it nicely. No complaints.
Good app 5/5
This app works fine on my iPhone. Convenient having all of the licenses for my family in one place.
After this last update, the app is still broken 1/5
This app hasn't worked for several months. They just updated and it still doesn't work. When you tap on the tab that says "my licenses" the app crashes out. This is pretty much the only reason I downloaded it for. I hope it gets fixed soon
All this is is a link to the mobile website. The only difference is this doesn't work at all, the links are dead and don't work. Just bookmark the website and use that.
It works 4/5
Seems to do what it says it will do. There could be better info on tides and maps but there's other apps for that. No trouble finding my license info to add it. Does what it's supposed to do.
App doesn't work 1/5
Your app doesn't work!! The old version used to work just fine, I don't know where is the "improvements" on this new version.. Please get the old app back
Still no good updated 1/5
Like everyone has said you try to add your license and give you error. At least before you could keep you info to tour license but guess not anymore..what happend to the app
Not well developed 1/5
Upon trying to pull up the license I just purchased I am greeted with: Error. There was an error when making he request.
App does not work. Junk.
Search error 1/5
By Reef Angler
Although the tools seem to work (with exception there is no tide or seas data for Destin) the license sync errors out when I updated my Reef Angler license. I then deleted and re installed the app and it errors out. I now have a paper license. Please fix this soon!!
Decent app when working. 3/5
Lately I keep getting an error message when I try to sync my licenses.
License search still not working 2/5
I just downloaded FWC app and when I tried license search it failed. I saw the update March 13th was to fix this. Well it did not. I am using an IPhone 6s.
By Anthony Wittfeldt
Not what I had envisioned. It has a few links back to the website and let's you save your current license to your phone for reference when you need it. Seems...... To lack substance.
So Far So Good 4/5
I just purchased and it took and displayed my license without any problem, so good for now. I’ll update after I’ve used it more.
Why can't RLIS talk to app? 1/5
By Jeff Kraynik
App still can't find my license but when I go to RLIS, there it is. Put a box for customer ID#. Make them talk to each other!!!
