The Happy Prospector Goes Live for Australia Day

Well it has finally arrived.

We will be putting the first release version of the Happy Prospector up on Google Play later today, so Happy Australia Day.

The initial release provides real time positional information against Western Australian Mining Tenement data.

You only need an internet connection to install the program and then to regularly update the data files.

Everyday use of the App does not require an internet connection.

Purchase and download it from here.


The IOS version is still under development along with a number of advanced features for the android version.

Any Day Now

Thanks for your patience, still working on the last little bit and burning the candle at both ends.

Hopefully some of you managed to see the App at the APLA open Day last weekend. We are just trying to resolve a couple of small bugs with adding the latest couple of functions into the App, and will be making it available.

Stay Tuned.


The Happy Prospector Official Release Date

Due to some last minute programming improvements we have had to delay the release of the Happy Prospector App.

We are working in implementing the last few improvements before the App is released for public purchase and expect to make the Android version available through Google Play in the next couple of days so have moved the “Official Release Date” to December 1 which is few days away.  The IOS version still remains scheduled for release Q1 2017.

We will be demonstrating the App tomorrow Saturday 26 Nov at the APAL Perth open day being held at Duncraig Community Hall Cnr Marmion Avenue and Warwick Rd, so if your interested and want to come along and have a look you are more than welcome.

If we get the final release version ready before Dec 1 we will publish it and let you know.

Happy Prospector App set to be released

Blue Apps are pleased to announce that the Android version of the Happy Prospector is due to be released Nov 26 2016.


Written specifically for Prospectors in Western Australia the App turns your mobile device into a powerful bit of kit allowing you to see your exact location on your device against the latest Mining Tenements.


Updating is as easy as selecting an option from the menu.


Here’s some screenshots from the App.
