This is a screeshot of HuntStand, one of the best hunting apps for android
Hunting isn’t quite the necessity it once was. We have food readily available these days. However, that doesn’t stop people from going out and engaging in the occasional hunt. It’s a physical activity so there isn’t too much of a use for a smartphone. That doesn’t mean there are no uses, though.

From what we can tell, there are three types of hunting apps. The first is communicative so you can talk to fellow hunters or members of your party who aren’t right next to you. You can also find various hunting-specific maps with property lines and such on it. Finally, there are various sound apps for things like animals calls. We have a little bit of everything here so let’s look at the best hunting apps for Android!


HuntStand

Price: Free / $5.99-$19.99
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
HuntStand is probably your best bet for an all-in-one hunting app. It features maps for easy navigation along with important information like property lines. The app also comes with tracking features, weather reports, and even some small social elements. You can personally customize maps for your needs, sync between devices, and edit your maps from within the app. There really isn't much that it can't do aside from shooting the animals for you. You can pay a nominal fee to remove the ads. You can pay more for additional features as well.

Many of its features are available offline as well. You can get maps for an individual state for $29.99 per year or, alternatively, the whole country for $14.99 per month or $99.99 per year. Obviously, we only recommend this app for people who hunt very frequently and can justify the cost.

For now, the app is an excellent resource for beginning and intermediate hunters and the app also has some mapping features as well.

Vstd hunting apps

Price: Free / Up to $3.49
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Vstd is a developer on Google Play with several decent hunting apps. Well, technically they are animal call apps. You can use them for hunting purposes, though. Each app has various calls from various species, including deer, elk, moose, duck, coyote, goose, and Turkey. The app design for each one is a little basic, but the calls are relatively decent. There are premium versions of each app. However, we weren't able to tell a discernible difference between the premium versions and the free versions, so just go free for now.

Zello PTT Walkie Talkie

Price: Free
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Zello PTT Walkie Talkie is arguably the best walkie talkie app on mobile phones right now. You can keep in contact with your hunting group, even if you're not right next to each other. The app features both public and private chats with both PTT (push to talk) and text functionality. It works over even spotty data connections and it also features push notifications in case you are otherwise occupied. Of course, phone calls and texts work too, but a good old-fashioned walkie-talkie can certainly help communication within your hunting party. Plus, the app is free.

1Weather is one of our favorite weather apps. The app features a no nonsense design, a 10-day weather forecast, current conditions, a radar, humidity readings, and even sunset and sunrise times along with moon phases. There is also a 12-week weather prediction engine that is sometimes accurate and sometimes not. An app like this can help plan trips and you can keep an eye on major storms that may ruin your hunting trip. There are a bunch of good weather apps, though, so we linked our best list at the button above. Check it out if you want a seriously good weather app!

Offline Survival Manual

Price: Free

Offline Survival Manual is a decent app for outdoor trips where you may be going a lot further from the road than you're typically used to. The app features tips and tricks for making fire, shelter, food, and even basic medicine. Additionally, there are tricks for procuring water, what kinds of plants you shouldn't eat, and other such things. This is one of those rare use case kinds of apps. Obviously, if you're only a few miles outside of town, you probably won't need something like this. However, those going on real expeditions may want something like this in their pocket just in case. We also have our list of the best survival apps linked up at the button in case you want to browse more selections. However, we really like Offline Survival Manual.
