smart phone chart/navigation apps

am guessing there have been some discussions already

would anyone like to sound off on their favourite navigator app such as ActiveCaptain ot Navionics, have hears some nice things from a Nav user...

I use Sprint, HTC EVO or Samsung

so many mixed reviews on these apps for the actual app & then of course chart download

regards

Re: smart phone chart/navigation apps

thank you for the reply but I was meaning the navigator app not the cell phone service
Although it appears on maps work better, obviously with some phones does active captain work with Sprint ... It has a windows version but unclear
