I am in process of developing a hunting/scouting app for Android/iOS devices. What are key features that you would target to include?
It really just needs to work, all the time, and have updated accurate info. No need for a ton of bells and whistles, keep it simple.
Simple! And the maps and waypoints move automatically to a new phone if you move your flash drive! I love Backcountry Navigator, but every time I get a new phone I lose all my data. BCN is coming out with a subscription program that's cloud based and that should cure some of my woes, but I'd rather not have to pay a subscription but it doesn't sound like it's going to be too costly

I would like to see moon phase and barometric pressure.
It needs to be fully functional without cell service!
It needs to have pin-drops of all the big bulls killed posted on instagram from OTC units. Please and thanks.

Not sure if it's doable but private/public land boundaries would be awesome. It's public info anyway so seeing OnX having some competition might keep their prices more in check.
So-lunar tables - best times of the day for hunting & overall good/bad days. We've not seen the "excellent vs good vs avg vs poor" days to hold true, but I still check it on my GPS since it's there.
A good option for the solunar tables is the iHunt Ruger app. It's mostly a calling app but has the tables in it too as well as sunrise/sunset times.

I'm easy. All I want is that it gives the real time GPS coordinates for all 250" + bulls in OTC areas.
on public lands...
