    I have created an Android app called Sweetspot that I would like to get some feedback on.
    I am a keen hunter myself and I wrote the app because I felt that it would be a good tool when hunting etc.

    If you have the time please check it out.
    Requires minimum 3"screen and touch.
    If you have issues with it, please don't rate it low...instead post a suggestion on this thread or mail me from the google play store.
    It's free and the url is: https://play.google.com/store/apps/...GwsMSwxLDEsImNvbS50ZWRzLnN3ZWV0c3BvdGZyZWUiXQ..

    So it is like a GPS app such as putting in a pin in Google Earth on your phone?

    Yea, kinda. But you are also getting directed to that location and the distance left is shown(based on your current location). Basically lets you mark a location and you can always find your way back to that location.

    I found Sweetspot and it says it is for parking in San Diego. Sweetspot Pro is for hunting and is $1.99. I don't buy apps and I don't live in SD but I do have spots marked on my GPS so is this significantly better or just easier because it allows you to carry one less device?

    Wait! I found Sweetspot Free and will give it a run.

    downloading it now, and quite looking forward to it, I must say. It's kind of a pain having to try to remember this or that visual cue on public land that could change when the next dude comes walking through. This may be just what I need.

    Thank you all for your replies, hope the app works out for you(please let me know). I am working on an update which is going to include some new features, but I still have some work to do before release.

    either takes forever or won't get connect to the gps. Not sure why that happens.

    Are you indoors? the gps takes forever(or a very long time) if you are inside a house...outside the gps initiates in seconds and the app is ment to run outdoors:)
    Many other gps apps initiate with last known location of the device and it might seem that it initiates very fast, but then it is an "old" value that runs until refresh of gps coordinates. Sweetspot can't do that because then you might add "old" outdated values, and you don't want that.
    That is why the app(Sweetspot) checks for fresh values before you can add a spot.
    Try it outside and you shouldn't have a problem

    Thank you for your interest .

    I'd add the current altitude and current speed to the app.

    It just doesn't seem to work for me.

    Near or far most of the time it gives a distance of 0 to the sweetspot

    Thank you for your reply!

    I am working on a new version with some new features and I will consider adding the features you wanted.
    However I want to keep it as clean as possible so that it is user friendly...I might add a button on the menu that turns on "advanced" mode that uses/shows the extra features.
    Do you think that will be an ok solution?
    Thank you once again.

    Hi R.W.Dale

    Very strange...may I ask what model of phone you use(for bug fix/search).
    I haven't heard of this problem before so I will look into this problem and try and fix it as soon as possible.

    Thank you for supplying this information.
