    Too many stars from me

    This would be an excellent app ... if it only worked. It doesn't, hasn't for a couple of years, and won't ... until the developers get off their butts & fix it. I've been sailing or fishing this lake for over over 60 years, and rely on the UW's data collection & record-keeping. A shame that what could be a nifty & useful app is merely a consumer of space.

    Too bad

    This used to be a nice app to use when determining whether to go to the lake. Unfortunately the app stopped working after the 2014 summer. I contacted the developer and he said he was going to fix it, but never did. Disappointed.

    Waste of money

    What a rip-off! Liars too, since other reviewers state hasn't worked in years. Want my money back PLUS should be removed from App Store as a scam purchase!
