Re: What are your favorite iPhone/iPad sailing apps?
The two apps that do not require internet that we use are Navionics for navigation and for checking tides and HF Fax, for uploading a weather fax from our HAM radio (you just plug it in to the radio and it interprets all of high pitched sounds).
When we have internet I like to download a gribsheet using PocketGrib and also download the weather files from passageweather.com to read in the PDF app. I also like NOAA Radar Pro for looking at weather and tracking hurricanes. When we had 3g out on the sea mAIS and MarineTraffic were nice for seeing traffic and also reporting our position. BuoyData was nice when we had 3g to see real time weather info.
Another thing I like to put on my pad is all of the frequencies and times for HAM nets for cruisers, that way I don't have to remember them.
Two apps I have that I've never really used are Marine Weather and BoatingCalcs, so I can't say if they're good or not. Would be curious if others have experience with them.
Since we started using the Delorme InReach (satellite tracker) we have another app that shows us our position and speed (called Earthmate). It also has an interface where we can essentially send and receive text messages.
I'm walking away from this thread with some other good suggestions! Excited to go put some NOAA charts on my iPad.
