Keeps closing  Notorious Clg  1 star

I use this app to track ships for work, this is been increasingly difficult to do when the app keeps force closing itself when I try to open it. Please fix this issue soon.


Worst than garbage, less than rubbish, perfect waste of money  HHHRrrrt  1 star

I bought to track one specific vessel. It can’t even do that. Perfect waste of money. I only gave it one star because I can’t figure out how to give it zero or minus five.


Needs up to support iOS 11.0.3  Lil'Henry  4 star

App stopped opening/ working since last iOS update. Other than that app works good in most areas.


Save your $ and go with the free app  10-4!  1 star

If it has Satellite AIS position updates, I’m not seeing it. Don’t waste your money.

Would be good only if ship reports AIS data. This pushes you into a position wether or not if you want to pay a monthly fee to get satellite positioning, which would be real time. Paid the $10 but it only showed boats in port. Cargo ship I was tracking left port and still in same position off coast of Australia when I know it is almost in china. "Way over priced". Cargo ship is 2 days away from china and has been at sea over 10 days. In addition, it keeps dropping my ships and I have to re-search. Not sure on dynamics but perhaps ship needs to relay positions. I don't need to pay $10 for that info. Their website shows the same. Other websites from other apps show different but still the same problem. Not sure y two different apps show different positions. Plenty of free sites that give me the same info. I tried to email the company but got server error from their website. $10 was a lot to pay for nothing. Garbage....


This version, Not usable  RCassano  1 star

Just downloaded this pro version thinking it would be better then Marine Traffic, but it's not. In fact it is not even close. Fails to update a fleet vessel when other AIS apps are tracking it just fine. I do not recommend until it is fixed.

What are they doing!  hasselblad snapper  1 star

This app is an expensive piece of junk. Paid for the pro version owing to the fact that I can't stand the advertisements. However, the paid app will not display a global location map!. It just shows a position and ship details in "space" ..... not much Use without a proper map. So highly disappointed, next stop ....Apple to try to obtain a refund??!. By the way, the free one actually has a full global map....mmm!.


Don't bother  Hlexxxx2  1 star
