Users can login in two modes, the guest mode and the registered user mode.
You can register by pressing the Sign Up button. If you have already registered then just enter your e-mail and password details and press Login.
The app offers an option to use it without registering. If you skip user registration then the application will be opened in 'Guest Mode'. The difference between 'Guest Mode' and the registered user mode is that users cannot log their fish log details and store information to the server. All other functionalities will work the same as for a registered user.
The one time registration process is quick and simple. The user has to provide a valid email address, password, name, gender and date of birth. Upon registration, the app will sign in to the home screen. If 'Remember me” is enabled then the user will be always logged in until logged out manually. The registered user's first and last name will be shown at the bottom status bar.

If the user wants to explore the app in guest mode, then tap “Guest Mode” from the Login screen. Before taking you to the Home screen, an alert message will be displayed to the user.
After you login into the mobile app as a registered user or in guest mode, the app will sync details from the server before taking you to the Home screen. The app requires internet connection to function well with all its features. The app prepares by updating details from the server (Image 4). The data sync happens through the data connection available in the device.
Some users might find it taking much time to load. This might be due to connectivity issues.
