RedSnake Enterprises, LLC, the developers of iSolunar™ Hunting & Fishing Times, has released the app’s latest update for iPhone and iPod Touch users looking to maximize their chances of a successful hunting, fishing or wildlife photography trip. iSolunar™ Hunting & Fishing Times provides hunters and fishermen with the peak feeding and activity times based on the position of the moon and the moon phase. The application soared to the Top 50 of all Sports Apps within the first week of being released and is the top rated ‘solunar tables’ app on iTunes.
iSolunar™ works by combining precise astronomical data from the US Naval Observatory with the solunar theory developed in the 1930's by John Alden Knight to provide users with the times that fish and game are most active. Using the GPS feature of the iPhone, iSolunar™ adjusts the data for the user's longitude to provide location-specific solunar feeding periods and peak activity times for fish and game.
The seemingly instant success of iSolunar™ comes on the heels of a heightened interest in hunting and fishing apps for mobile platforms. "We are really pleased with iSolunar’s functionality and the ability to provide location-specific information to our users," says Red Cochran, CEO of RedSnake Enterprises. President and co-founder, Snake Porter echoed Cochran's enthusiasm stating that “our customers are excited about how well iSolunar™ provides accurate solunar times to make their hunting or fishing trip a success."
The app’s tagline - Created by Outdoorsmen, for Outdoorsmen - stems from Cochran and Porter’s passion for the outdoors and is backed by their personal experience as avid sportsmen. Cochran and Porter, both seventh-generation Texans, have spent considerable time hunting and fishing on their family ranches in Nolan County and Parker County. “Hunting and fishing have been an important part of our family heritage. We have used solunar tables for years, and now we are pleased to be able to make them portable and accessible via the iPhone.”
It isn’t just the sports minded individual who can benefit from using iSolunar™ Hunting & Fishing Times. Wildlife photography enthusiasts and bird watchers can find the app an extremely useful tool to increase the likelihood of spotting their subject.
iSolunar™ Hunting & Fishing Times is the premier solunar table iPhone App. That claim is backed up by its number one rating for solunar tables and its rocket speed placement in Apple’s Top 50 in the app’s first week of release.
