Guys you're headed in the right direction, but there's a lot of additional options you need to add. One being a users "Fleet" where they can add their favorite ships they watch the most. Also, the option for users to add pictures of these ships. Also, more ship data. I use an app called FindShip which is unfortunately no longer available in the Google store, but it is available as apk file to download and use. It is far superior to your app now, but you can change that. If you want.

Good app but you have to pay for any ship info, so free version is more basic than others.

2 Nov - the app just updated today and it's back to functional. Thanks for fixing that. Good app again. 31 Oct - A very nice app prior to 9 Oct upgrade, after that nearly useless. Used to show all ships in the Great Lakes when zoomed out, now spotty if it will show ships or say "No ships found" at large overviews, and also spotty when zooming in, doesn't always show the ships. That's really unfortunate because it was a really nice app prior, very much enjoyed it.

Dear Craig, Glad to hear the fix solved your problem. Any chance you can put our stars back up a few? Good ratings really help. Best regards The Pocket Mariner Crew
