iSolunar Hunting & Fishing Times, a new fishing app for the iPhone that provides solunar tables for the best fishing times for any location worldwide. Help us test it out!

RedSnake Enterprises, LLC, the developers of iSolunar™ Hunting & Fishing Times, have 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.

Got an iPhone? Want to help us test this App?

We have 5 promo codes to give away courtesy of the developers Redsnake Enterprises to get yourself a free copy of this new app.

All we need in return is for you to agree to test this out for a month and then report back on your findings. Do the peak times given by the app really coincide with the best fishing time or were they completely different? We need to know!

The first 5 members to get a Private Message to the "Editor" inbox will get one of the codes to help you unlock your free download. 

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.”

This free update is expected to be available on the iTunes App Store in late May 2010.
