Boat Watch - Ship Spotting App Reviews

  • 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

    By katherine salter
    If you offer a service make it accurate!
  • don’t waste your money

    By Dont waste$$
    was not able to get much tracking info on the cruise that my son was on recently
  • I don’t think so...

    By TGFBV
    Usually seems accurate. At the moment I am near Cleveland, and allegedly there are two vessels. One going from Sault Ste. Marie to Two Harbors (eastbound no less) and one going from Rogers City to Cheboygan (eastbound). WRONG!!
  • Where did the NOAA charts layover go?

    By workonthewater
    I have used this app for months and loved it. It is a valuable asset for doing my job. I especially loved the NOAA chart layover. Yesterday, when I wanted to use my app all of a sudden the NOAA charts were gone. Restoring purchases didn’t bring them back, reinstalling the app didn’t do the trick and I don’t see any option to select the NOAA charts layover as I was able in the past. Please help!
  • Disappointed

    By CJunette
    I wish I hadn’t of purchased this ap and the live view—- it doesn’t show anything “live” it’s historical views apparently and I e wasted $4.99 x2.
  • Didn’t work

    By Daily reader no more
    I paid for the fancy version, and I should have just stuck with the marine traffic free website.
