Boat Watch - Ship Spotting App Reviews

  • Informative and incredible

    By Moe the greatest moe
    Neat app. Great learning tool!
  • Boat watch

    By gloski123
    Watch boats go out of port all the time and says no ships in area. Rating - “0”
  • Frustrating

    By taken badly
    Tried the upgrade because the free addition showed only a few ships in harbors and none moving. Even though I could see them. The upgrade shows no ships. Again I can see them. Waste of money
  • Captain Dan.

    Not always up to date. Very good layout. Easy to follow.
  • Boats on dry land?

    By Cr41gm4n
    The app consistently shows boats on dry land. I’ve also had issues with it incorrectly reporting location showing the boat I’m tracking to be somewhere that I know it is not while I’m in communication with someone actually on board
  • Slow, inaccurate

    Too bad the app doesn’t deliver. The concept is great, but it is slow and often completely inaccurate.
  • Unreliable.

    By ddmmabb
    Downloaded this app for work purposes. At first (lite version) I had no issues. Once I paid for the full version, all of my troubles began. Again I use this for work purposes. There is a constant freeze or delay of ship movements or locations. At times the ships don’t even show up at all. Major waste IMO.
  • Cruiseship tracking

    By sokar9
    Certain cruise ships dont show or show erratically
  • Dont track well!

    By Guayoyo1
    Don’t know what they use to track ships but don’t work well, not even if the ship is a shore. I have been following the allure of the seas and for the past 2 days got no report, they had stopped in San Juan P R and in Haiti and still showing the ship in around St Thomas No reliable app!
  • Missing ships
