About this app

Nautical Information Service (nIS) is a free multilingual application for smartphones, intended for owners of yachts and boats, fishermen, divers, swimmers and other people who spend time on the coast and at sea. nIS was developed so that users could provide substantial and detailed information to the local harbormaster’s offices and other services for navigation safety, prevention of marine pollution, and especially to search and rescue services, in a quick and simple way. nIS can also provide users all the necessary information important for their safety, at any time and at every place.

nIS enables users to dial a phone number used for distress, urgency or safety calls - 195 (MRCC Rijeka), while automatically reporting location of the caller via a short text message (SMS), which essentially reduces the time needed to find users in danger.

Contents of the nIS application:
• phone call to the toll-free number of the search and rescue service – 195, with information on current location
• maritime violation report (with an option to attach photos and/or videos)
• weather forecast for mariners (air temperature, wind speed and direction, air pressure, waves, cloud cover)
• navigation rules (vessel equipment, order in ports and at sea, avoiding collision at sea, marine environment protection, information for foreign vessels, divers and swimmers, radio service and radio notices, maritime marks)
• public services contacts (search and rescue, harbormaster's offices, hyperbaric chamber, commercial salvage, consulates, medical institutions, emergency services, VTS service, coastal radio stations)
• ports and anchorages (marines, nautical anchorages, petrol stations, border crossings)

Can not register. App shows "New user registration failed! Please check yoiur network settings!". I even tried to clear cache and app data, tried connecting via 4G or Wifi, nothing helped. UPDATE: Now the app asks to re-register, sends a PIN via SMS, but validation always fails with "PIN validation failed" error :( UPDATE: after update and clearing app data (Settings/Apps/nIS/Storage/Clear data) the app works fine again.

This app wants half of possible permissions on the phone for no stated reason, then requires registration with a number of personal data for no stated reason and ... When you still say "mkay, i want it badly", it crashes after registration and then crashes on every app open attempt. How bad is this? Did you actually try to use this aop after you made it?

Anchorage charts are not reliable. South Adiratic region is missing a lot of places, for example, infront of Dubrovnik, areas around Pakleni islands in front of Borovac island. Great idea for and app but still needs a lot of work.
