actually, the Navionics app works completly offline and only requires the GPS to get a lock (aka uses no data service). It is also much faster to browse the chart on my phone than looking at the chart plotter, but that doesn't mean I would suggest using it in place of the marine grade chart plotter tied to the sounder for actual depth info. It is however a good supplement or backup device (as long as the battery isn't dead)

Rum app. Ideally this would tell you the closest place that sells it.
Slip finder app. Let me know when/where slips are available.
wind, tide, weather, see my above post

local hazard and channel markers are coverd by the charts, in the navionics app.

rum and slip apps, those would be nice to have
