LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission is launching a mobile application on the Android platform for checking in game.

The commission noted Thursday that the app was first launched in 2009 for iPhone and has been downloaded more than 80,000 times. More than 28 percent of hunters checked their game using the IPhone app.

Now available for Android, the app provides information and services for hunters, anglers, and outdoor enthusiasts. Hunters can check game, view season dates and bag limits. Anglers can view fishing reports, use the fish identification search, and see Arkansas record catches.
