Our Applications.

At Shiny we develop a range of innovative applications for the Mac, iPhone and iPad. Ranging from educational apps to social networking, speech synthesis to games, we strive to produce innovative software and have some fun along the way.

Here are some examples of recent apps we've produced.

Tackle Fishing

Aimed at the beginner/intermediate angler and stunningly illustrated throughout, the app contains beautiful cross sections with amazing detail and depth covering lakes & fisheries, canals and rivers identifying the key locations to fish. For each location a detailed rig diagrams show the float, weights, bait and hook you need and pro tips help improve your technique further and increase your catch.
