smart phone apps for sailing/boating

• Hello I'm bored at work on 3rd shift. figured I'd stop by for some entertainment and advice. This forum hasn't let me down yet.

• I have a iPhone with a few nautical apps. And since my boat (1981 Sonic 23) is about to splash I was just wondering what everyone else who has a smart phone is using while sailing around. I would love to discover something new (preferably free) and maybe even help someone discover something new...

• Here is a list of what I currently have:
- Navionics USA&Canada
- Navigation Rules
- Seamanship
- Knot Guide
- GoneBoating
- Signal Flags Info
- *Sailnet!!!

I use motion x gps. It's great for navigating, tracking sails, even charts. iPhone version is cool. iPad version is amazing.

For a free app this is pretty impressive!

Sorry that's iSailGPS - I think it was about $7.99 but cheaper than buying charts and GPS at WM!!!

Ship Finder. Uses the AIS system. ID's traffic and tells you their course and speed. Priceless in fog.

Re: smart phone apps for sailing/boating

I have used the Navionics APP for the past 3 years, all over the east caost. It keeps getting better and better. How do you beat $9.99 for the whole US.
