Very interesting and easy to use but a bit clunky and slow Does what it says it does. The app uses Google maps as the background map which is a bit of a surprise as they have changed nothing about the way it looks at all. However , there is nothing wrong with Google maps of course and is well known for it's accuracy. When the app is first launched , even using a fast Wi-Fi connection, little ships icons takes around ten to twenty seconds to populate the map in the given area which is a bit slow. Once it does though, different coloured icons indicate different categories and statuses of vessels. Navigation beacons and are also shown. The information updates automatically in real time so you can actually watch the progress of a vessel across the map. Touching the icon of a ship brings up an information pane giving facts and figures about it as well as destination and expected arrival time where applicable. Fascinating even for people like myself who have an interest it boats and ships and often watch them from the shore wondering what they are doing and where they are going to. This app will answer your curiosity. It's not as bad as some previous reviews suggest in my opinion, but it could be quite a bit better with an improved interface.
Doesn't work! Bought it and installed in my Samsung galaxy s3 hoping I could find my brothers location who works in a ship in the Philippines. We badly need to find him and his location especially after being battered by typhoon Yolanda. This app is a good idea but unfortunately didn't help. It could help save lives if it works properly.
IOS version. Is infinatly better I want my money back The difference between the 2 is shocking, I've a note 4 and you cannot make any of the boats out on the tiny photos. The interface is second rate and looks out dated. In short DONT bother.
Not working properly Downloaded this app yesterday cause I got new phone but I have to say it was waste of money. Its missing futures can't do a vessel search have to find it manually and then when it's found I can't ad to my favorites. Please fix it its very annoying.
What the hell happened! Like everyone else has already said, this app used to work great but now you can't search for ships because the menu button doesn't even exist! Also the boats take FOREVER to load onto the screen. This app is a complete WASTE OF TIME now and I would like my money back.
It's my own fault With 67 1 star reviews I still decided buy the app. BIG MISTAKE! Like other did advice: I using the must better Marine Traffic. As for now: 68 1 star reviews
Fixed the crashing when low/no signal
