I searched around this forum and a few others, and a request that I saw quite frequently was for an iPhone app that showed all the Alberta WMUs over the built in maps.

I just released an iPhone app that has the features requested, plus some others. It makes it dead simple to see what WMU you are in, gives you a summary of the Regs in that WMU, allows you to drop waypoints and attach text and images to them. It's available on the AppStore for $5.99 until November 1st as a promotional price. Check out the website to see a full list of features at:
www.ihunterapp.com

or download the app from AppStore at:
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ihunter-alberta/id570558600?ls=1&mt=8

Let me know if you have any feedback. The promotional price is so low because I really want feedback, positive or negative. I hope the app helps you out...

Thanks, and happy hunting,
Mark

If there is enough interest in the iPhone version, I will do my best to get an android version out... but if sales don't go well, I won't be able to justify the effort. I am actually an android user as well, but a better iOS developer than android one, so released on iPhone.

If you know others that might be interested, please pass the links along.

Mark I know 20 guys right now that would buy that app, it's all word of mouth. If you want some help marketing it let me know very interested, I own Alberta Sportsman but am in the oilfield/manufacturing business IRL.

I agree with word of mouth. Do you have a page or anything on facebook? I can share it with my hunting friends if you do?

Good place to post it too is Alberta Outdoorsmen but make sure you get permission generally products posted get deleted unless you have paid the hierarchy there.

jboutdoors5, I will get you a banner tomorrow for sure (I finally stopped programming and made it out to do some bow hunting). I really appreciate you passing the info along to others. I love how this community helps others... just, thanks.

Paul, thanks for the suggestion and the PM. Will talk to you soon.

Thanks again for your support guys. Just an update on the app. We have about 600 users of the app now (in less than three weeks) and have released an update to include some requested features. New features include game bird seasons and bag limits, bear and cougar seasons, and a location-based sunrise sunset calculator.

Again if anyone has any feedback, please let me know.

Hope you guys have been luckier in the field than I have been this year...

Just following up here... The Android version of iHunter Alberta is now available at:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.insideoutside.ihunteralberta

As with the iPhone version, it comes with the 2012 regulations built in, but will be a free update to the 2013 regs.

Let me know if you have any questions / comments...

I'll stick with the good old maps that they give in the hunting regulations...............they seemed to work for me in the past several decades.

Yup, I am just trying to provide an option for those that want to embrace the technology. If you know of any hunters that would make use of it, please pass the info on to them.

I have used this app quiet abit. I have marked alot of places of interest and shed hunting spots on it so far as i travel alot. Worked really well for marking fields for waterfowl hunting the next day as well.
