About this app

ShippingExplorer for Android is the mobile version of our feature rich desktop application. It's a cost-effective software to track vessels with live data. It displays all vessels in range at their exact position on a map. Additional information, photos, track history, etc. about vessels can be viewed right away in the program.

For a limited period of time we're offering all demo users the live data feed instead of delayed positions. Just enter "DEMO" as your key.
Users already owning a license for ShippingExplorer just enter their usual product key.

- Live vessel data from around the world in realtime
- Details for all ships, including photos
- Track history with positions for each ship
- Search and display a ship's last position
- Favorites

As I'm a long term user, can say that after the 30 June 2020 update, the application doesn't remember last focused map position and starting each time on general world map so please fix it asap. Thanks. ***update*** Really doesn't work properly! The worst update... To be wait 5 minutes for appear ships on the chart, every search goes to general World map, etc. etc. Previous version was much more better...

With the new updates. I can no longer zoom in and get a clear pic of where vessels are. Also, everytime I open the app, now it shows the whole globe. So I have to zoom back in to where I am at. The new update seems to have made the app worse for me

The app remembers your last map view when you reopen it, unless your phone kills the app in the background. You can use the port tab with most recent ports which you can quickly navigate to later on. Or use the "My position"-button. We will add an option in a future update. What do you mean by "no longer get a clear pic of where vessels are"?

Does not show vessel location,just a map and there is no method to obtain a licence or the cost it just runs in demo mode the website is almost as useless as the app. I am using Android 10 and clearly it has problems but as I said no info on the website no contact hopeless.
