As many of our members have noticed, Fishidy.com, the fishing social network loaded with detailed fishing maps, has launched a new design to the website. The site redesign has been developed with users in mind and was created based on their feedback. With continuous improvements occurring weekly, there has been more emphasis on the fishing maps, improved usability, and a main fishing log that creates awareness.
As many members have requested, we have improved the interactive fishing maps. The maps have been enlarged to create ease while searching your favorite body of water. As you search that body of water, it is easier to mark your catches or spots, which can be found in the lower right corner of the map, with as much detailed information users would like to provide. The map tools have been simplified to help users take advantage of available layers and features.
Improved usability means users are able to navigate to different areas of the site and access the great information provided on Fishidy.com with ease. As we continue to improve with user feedback, getting started on the site and becoming interactive is a breeze. The new task bar that extends down the left-hand side contains tabs for rapid navigation along with the getting started with Fishidy section that can be found on the main feed. Members can find productive fishing spots near them by using the discover new fishing spots feature.
When users log in, they are directed to the activity log, which provides them with up to date information about specific bodies of water and/or hot bites. As continuous improvements and information is provided on the main feed, users can “view this spot on the map” to get a precise location of where the bite has been hot.
