App recommendations: Fishing & Boating Apps Australia
At Media Shark, we love the ocean and tech stuff. As there’s plenty of apps available for iOS and Android, our team got together and outlined our favourite apps for fishing and boating in Australia.
But, before we dig into the recommendations and their features, here is a snapshot of the how mobile applications are growing, especially with COVID-19 outbreak. As of the first quarter of 2020, there were more than 2.5 million apps on Google Play, which is the app store with the most significant number of available apps. Apple’s App Store was the second-largest app store with more than 1.8 million available apps for iOS. There are plenty of options for you to choose from but find the useful ones can be tricky. The average smartphone user has more than 80 apps installed on their phones; however, only use 9 daily and 30 every month.
So, here are the Media Shark Team app recommendations for fishing and boating in Australia.
