The Hunting App

Why have a Hunting App

The app is designed to help the Masters and Hunt Committees organise and manage all aspects of the Hunt so that all members can participate equally on one secure and private platform.

A Hunting App can provide real-time information on the following all password protected so only the approved participants can view the information:

  • List Meets - Exact Location (W3W), Description, Date &Times, Images, Videos, Contact numbers, email etc

  • Events - Hunt Balls, Hounds to exercise, Hunt events in general

  • Accurate locations mapping

  • Provide essential general information like rules and regulatory information 

  • Sell Annual membership subscriptions and take payment using stripe

  • Communicate in real-time with Meet attendees (using push notifications) 

We have developed a Native App dedicated to Hunting and published it in the Apple & Google Play app stores.  If you run a hunt this is the perfect tool for running all aspects of the hunt from:

  • Contact Information

  • Directions

  • Display web information 

  • Galleries

  • Hunt Events

  • Information pages

  • Create Mailing Lists

  • Local information such as local Pubs & Restaurants 

  • Meets

  • Passwords protect sensitive information

  • Push Notifications

  • Rules

  • Subscriptions

  • Videos

  • & much more

How a Shared App Works

We provide you with a unique link for your app and a QR code (into which your link is embedded) 


You distribute the QR Code & link as you see fit.


  • displayed on your website

  • printed on business cards,

  • email footers,

  • bochures, &

  • marketing campaigns etc.

The user scans the QR Code or clicks your unique link using their Mobile device. Depending on the device type (Apple or Android) they are taken to the Shared App page of the correct app store. 


The user downloads the app as usual and when opened your app will automatically be bookmarked and displayed. 

NB Apps are automatically bookmarked so the user can have access to multiple apps using the same App container 

Why a shared App?


  • You do not need to create and pay for an Apple or Google Play Developer account saving approximately £100 a year

  • We can Publish your app within 24 hours

  • Typical Savings over-investing in your own native app is approximately £1000 per annum 


  • The App icon on phones and tablets' home pages is generic and doesn't represent your brand.

  • Customers' brand is not represented within the app stores.
