Why today's when-to-go Apps fall short
We've had many requests to make a PrimeTimes App for iPhones, Androids, Blackberries, etc. Apps are handy, for sure. With just a couple taps on your mobile device you can view activity forecasts anytime, regardless of where you are.
You might find it interesting that any of those dozens of such Apps on the market today invariably lack in accuracy and detail. The reason is simple: It takes too much time, effort, knowledge and money to produce something as accurate and comprehensive as the PrimeTimes system. As a result, you may get little more than the day’s lunar times...with nothing about the critical solar periods...or which period is the best, second best, and so on.
You may not even get a daily rating, telling if this is a good day to go.
And it certainly won't adjust to what quarry you're going after!
In short, that App you paid good money for may be telling you as little as 25% of what you need to know. And if it cost only a couple bucks...well, you get what you pay for.
Three "App" Options from Primetimes
1) The "Ultimate PrimeTimes" Option...the best "App" by far!
In about the time it takes to find and buy an App online, you can create something that is much better, using your copy of our
Ultimate PrimeTimes software. It's quick, it's easy, it's free to make, it's adjustable, and best of all, it will literally blow any when-to-go App out of the water!
Like the software, it's geared just for you, your location, your quarry, and other important variables. You see each day’s best periods listed in order, plus the numerical value for how good (or bad) that day is. You can do this for a weekend trip, or for the entire year.
In the following example, you can easily see that fishing for Largemouth Bass in the Shallows at a location of Longitude 94' 32", Latitude 42' 15" on May 8, 2011 rates a 44 on a scale of 0-100 (with 100 being the best). Then, just as easy to determine are the times of your best period, second best, right on down the line:
May 8, 2011
Largemouth Bass--(Shallows)--Longitude 94' 32", Latitude 42' 15"
Daily Rating: 44 (Fair)
Today's Top Periods (in order of probably activity)
1) (3:44 pm - 5:44 pm) Heat of Day
2) (7:41 pm - 8:56 pm) Dusk
3) (5:37 am - 7:52 am) Dawn
4) (11:41 am - 2:51 pm) Noon
5) (4:14 pm - 7:30 pm) Moon Over*
6) (3:41 am - 7:07 am) Moon Under*
(*Most apps would have 5) and 6) as this day's best periods.)

You can also import any or all of our famous "Best Days of the Month" charts.
This special export feature of Ultimate PrimeTimes is just as accurate as the software itself. It is accessible anytime and anyplace with any hand-held device that can store data or emails. With just a few taps, you have the most comprehensive, accurate, easy-to-read forecasts for fish and game activity available in the mobile world today.
2) Our Free "Lunar Times" download
If all you want is a basic moon table (which is what you get with most Apps anyway), you can simply download our free, online Lunar Times. It offers the two major and two minor lunar times of each day, plus an "Events" column. But please remember that its forecasts provide only a fraction of what you really need to know regarding the best times and days to fish and hunt in your area.
3) Our Hardcopy Pocket Guide
Of course, there's still the old-fashioned, carry-it-with-you, Astro Tables pocket guide that comes free with your purchase of our
PrimeTimes wall calendar. It may not be a tap-tap App for your mobile device, but it gives better when-to-go info, is always on, and never needs batteries!
