Boat Lights v1

My first iPhone app has been up on the Apple Store for a few weeks now – sales have been good so far. I, like many others, remember the rules and situations that I encounter most often. So, I was looking around at apps that would help me identify the navigation lights and shapes displayed by other vessels. What I found was a lot of apps and websites that were basically just electronic versions of a manual. What I wanted was something that I could easily punch in what I was seeing, and the app would quickly tell me what it could be. As opposed to flipping through a couple of hundred images. Something that I could use anywhere without needing a network connection.

I couldn’t find anything like this on the market, so I wrote one. It’s called Boat Lights and it’s available for the iPhone and the iPad.

    Hi Glenn, yes I stopped to see how and what other people are writing about sailing and theire experiences.I love your app, I could use it for my students when they come to learn how to sail.
    I just read about the app, didn´t dowload it yet( my android is broken right now. it needs new screen, they are very sensitive especially if you keep them in a pocket while dismantling a gearbox) 🙂 but I will download it. Evrything I read about the app si very good, will recommend it to my other instructors in Croatia and my future students. Keep in touch….. All the best from Croatia

      Skiperman, Android version should be available March/April 2012. Sonja and I have been wondering whether a Croatian translation of the app would be worthwhile?
