I have several sailing apps:

Navionics, a mini chart plotter, it was about $10, cool but not as useful as my dedicated chart plotter at the helm

Ship finder, uses AIS signals to tell you where large vessels arein your area. It would be more useful if I was in an area with large vessels all over, maybe like Boston harbor.

Wind finder, gives wind conditions and preDictions at various locations but not local enough for my needs. I'm in Boothbay Harbor ME. Nearest location is South Portland.

Accuweather, not a sailing app but the one I use the most for their radar maps.

Until they come out with a waterproof iPhone that I can use in the dinghy when it is raining the apps are only semi useful to me but everyone's needs are different.
