Please know that the performance and accuracy of the Anchor watcher application depends on the hardware and software of the used device. If you have bad reception, please move the device to location that has better satellite reception!
Because this application uses GPS to monitor movement, it will consume battery little quicker than normally. I suggest you charge your device while using the app, although it's not necessary and the impact on battery live strongly depends on device used! There is also advanced option to set GPS update interval which might greatly improve battery live.

♦ Allows setting maximum drift with SMS
♦ Allows setting exclusion zones
♦ Uses device's compass to set the anchor even if you are not located directly above it
♦ Draws history positions over map (might consume a lot of RAM if it's run for a long time as data has to be saved somewhere)
♦ Setting minimum required GPS accuracy - data with smaller accuracy is ignored (by default this value is set to 35 meters)
Features that will come:
♦ alert on low battery
Application requires some permissions. Let me explain why:
♦ Fine GPS location: To monitor your location

In case of bugs:
Every application sooner or later has a bug. If you find one, please inform me so I can solve the issue. You can also contact me if you have suggestion for improving the app. I will gladly listen to your suggestions!
IF GPS doesn't work, please bear in mind that it might be hardware issue, as some devices have trouble getting good GPS fix! I can not do anything about that, nor can any other app.
If you want to post negative comments, PLEASE CONTACT ME FIRST on email@example.com so we can solve the issue(or add a feature). I can not respond to comments so I can not help with issues there.
If you want to help me by translating the app to other language, please contact me!
Please keep in mind that application is provided "AS-IS". It should not be relied on to and I shall not be responsible for any problem/expense/life threatening situation it could cause.

If you want the best, you want Anchor Alert.
Anchor Alert is an advanced anchor alarm application made by a professional software developer and MCA certified Yachtmaster. It was the first anchor alarm available for Android devices and remains the number one choice of serious boaters. It uses a unique anchor projection algorithm which takes into account the magnetic declination of the current location to more accurately set the anchor point. It has a clutter-free interface and once initial verification has taken place runs fully off-line. It has been designed primarily to maximise reliability and battery life while allowing the user a great degree of flexibility and customisation.
See http://www.slimjimsoftware.co.uk for a full list of features.
** GPS accuracy and performance depends on your phone's hardware. Please read the help page fully and make sure you understand how to tell if this application is running in the background and how to completely stop it.
NOTE: some Android devices using versions 4.0 to 4.0.4 are known to be overly aggressive when shutting down background tasks, this interferes with Anchor Alert's background function and causes it to be shut down after a couple of hours without warning. if you own one of these affected devices please contact your carrier about an upgrade to 4.0.4 or later, in the meantime you should only use foreground mode. Android versions 2.x and 3.x should not be affected.
Finally, please email me and let me know how I can make this app better for you before leaving negative feedback. My goal is a 5 star rating from everyone that buys this app, please help me achieve this!

Well, we at Skeuomania have come up with the perfect solution. Introducing Anti theft alarm.
Anti theft alarm protects your phone from theft with the help of motion alarm and charger alarm.
It also protects your data as it doesn’t allow the thief to go beyond the alarm screen until he swipes the right pattern or enters the right pin number. What is even better is that if the thief types in the wrong pin more than the pre-set limit, the phone sends a message with the location details to the number you have configured within the app.
Skeuomania believes in skeuomorphic design to give the app a sense of realism by protecting your phone in a maximum level security environment. With lasers, modern switches and highly detailed buttons, the app is full of eye-candy to show off to your friends.
The App in itself is very easy to use. Just flick the mode switch for charger or motion alarm and press the big button to activate the alarm. Keep the phone where you wanna leave it and let anti theft alarm take over the phone’s security from there.
1) A notification is displayed to the user when charger is connected and by just one touch you can access the app.
2) Notify friends through message about phones present location when the phone is lost.
3) Phone movement detection
4) Charger unplugged detection
5) Password Protection(Pattern/PIN)
6) Loud alarm even if the phone is in silent mode
7) Select alarm sound of your choice
8) Phone vibrates and screen flashes similar to police lights when the alarm is triggered
Here are a bunch of situations where Anti theft alarm will come in handy(BURGLARS BEWARE OF THIS APP).
1) When you leave your phone unattended and your pesky friends try to read your messages.
2) When you keep your phone for charging and you don’t want anyone to touch it till it gets fully charged.
3) Activate the motion alarm and keep it on your dairy,laptop or any object you wish to protect to prevent people from accessing them.
4) At the Restaurant or Bar where you keep your phone on the table and need to go to the restroom.
5) At the gym when you need to leave your phone and work out.
6) Any place where you think there are chances of your phone getting stolen. Just activate the motion alarm and catch any thief who tries to steal your phone.

- Structuring sub polygons (assembling a new polygon sequences from the original polygon points, with calculation of area and perimeter, with the option to save as a new file geotxt)
- Division areas. From the area of information sharing (m2) and the initial vertex of the calculation and straight lease the dividing point that meets the specifications given, the system calculates the UTM coordinates of the point P (E, N).
- Position Planimetric: Given a straight AB formed by any two points of the polygon, and given a distance (m) from point A, the position is calculated (E, N) this new point on the line.
- Distance: Calculate the distance between two points
- Azimuth: Calculates the azimuth alignment defined by any two points of the polygon
- Internal Angle: Informing central vertex, vertex aft and fore of a vertex is calculated horizontal angle at the vertex formed internal central
How much chain should we drop? What is the depth? What is the wind speed? Are we staying for the day or over night? How many markers is that?
This is the normal talk when dropping the anchor, yet the anchor length app helps skippers when dropping the anchor, immediately determining the amount of chain needed to be dropped based on the current depth, wind speed and size of the vessel.
The app is fully adjustable and allows the skipper to input the amount of chain on board and the size of the vessel. In addition the skipper is also able to input the amount of meters used per marker in order to make dropping the chain that much simpler.
The best way to minimize your chances of becoming a victim of violent crime (robbery, domestic violence) is to identify and call on resources to help you out of dangerous situations.
