I must go down to the sea again

Acting on the reviews I read before downloading this app., I have not bothered to try others because this one does it all for me. Many a time on the coast or on rivers I have located vessels and information about them which completely satisfies my nosiness. The only thing lacking are the names of the ships crew!!! I tracked my brother-in-law's cruise around the north of Norway and have viewed ships at my local port. I can see what is in the mid-Pacific in real time or in port anywhere in the world. For good measure, I have downloaded the computer version as well. This is a great app with lots of information which I highly recommend to all shipping buffs.

More payment options please


This is a really comprehensive app. I’d like to investigate it’s services more but it’s just too expensive. I appreciate that you can try before you buy . But the monthly fee is prohibitive unless you are actively using it for a business or serious daily fact based hobby or enquiry. I’d be happy to pay for an option per financial increment over a much broader range of services. The site does so much but I don’t want all of it by any stretch. I want to pay for the things that appertain to me but not be forced to pay for the things I’m not interested in simply because they are included in a monthly package. Please charge me for what want but not for what I don’t want and don’t need. The categories and current payment options are prohibitive and, in my opinion, need a more flexible and enlightened approach.
Other than that, it’s an excellent service and, if you can afford it, worth the investment. But the cost, for those of lesser means, probably excludes many who might benefit and help to bring the app to a wider audience, greater awareness and ultimately, a higher profit margin.

Camelford Tim. An Astonishing and amazing App!

A good friend sailed around the whole UK, now sailing in the Bay of Biscay put me onto this App so I could track him. App is fantastic! Worldwide, yet zooms to fine detail. One-click gives details and photos of Ships. Great entertainment & educational value. Found where my local fish&chip shop catches its Fish!
Moving on, I am now a volunteer watchkeeper for the National Coastwatch Institution. From a cliff top observation point, I log ships and people that may get into danger, and advise Search & Rescue services if a rescue is needed.
This is a superb app that can confirm identification by eye, telescope, and Radar.
I refer to it at home as a 'geeky' pastime!
