When it comes to technology, I have a tiny attention span with user manuals, and I’m sure many of you feel the same way. I try to “wing it” and push enough buttons to figure out how something works and then save the user manual for when I get stuck. This principle also applies when I test a new piece of fishing gear. If the gadget or piece of apparel is user-friendly enough that I don’t have to refer to the user manual all the time, that’s definitely a major selling point.
I love the iBobber for its simplicity and user-friendliness. Anglers of any experience level can quickly pick up on how to use the iBobber and its smartphone app, including people who have never used a fish finder. I purposely didn’t spend much time with the user manual before going out on field-tests because I wanted to see how quickly I could pick up on how to use it. Needless to say, I was using the iBobber just like any other crucial piece of my fishing gear within minutes and catching fish the first time I used it for kayak fishing.
I have already discussed the primary features of the iBobber app in earlier blog posts, but I want to take a moment to answer a potential question some people may have about the Trip Log. While I was experimenting with the Trip Log, I accidentally made a bunch of extra logs that I didn’t need. And while I was exploring the rest of the app and settings, I could not find any option to delete these extra trip logs.
It turns out I was over-thinking the issue, so if you have run into the same issue, keep on reading. To delete a trip log for iPhone users, simply swipe your finger to the left, and the option to Delete will appear next to the entry in question. It’s just like deleting a text message thread in your Messages App, entries under Recent Calls, or Voicemails. For Android users, simply hold down on the entry for a couple of seconds, and you will see the option to delete it.
If you have any questions about the iBobber, submit them on our Facebook page, and we’ll answer them in future blogs! For now, keep on fishing!
