Ship Finder App Description

Ship Finder shows live moving ships on a worldwide map. The intuitive design combined with incredible performance puts you in control. Watch in full screen, view in AR, search, add filters and so much more! Ship Finder has been top rated and top ranking since 2009 and covers most of the world, tracking 20,000+ ships simultaneously. Our incredible app performance means that you can see all tracked vessels at once - no clustering here! Simply tap a ship to see its name, type, photos, speed, dimensions and much more. Powerful features such as filters, search and the ability to save favourite ships are included. (You can choose Apple or Google maps too!). Add and browse bookmarks to saved locations around the globe to quickly navigate to areas or ports of interest. You can even use Augmented Reality (AR) view to identify ships out at sea using your device camera. Ship Finder works by picking up AIS ship feeds used by all passenger vessels, vessels over 300 tons and increasingly by smaller pleasure craft and yachts. This technology is actually faster than radar and is used by vessels for safety and navigation. Ship Finder provides near real time “virtual radar” AIS maps. It’s easy to use and is an amazing app for anyone interested in shipping, cruising and sailing in ports and locations across the world. It’s also great if you simply want to know what boats are out there or want to see where your friends and family are. Ship Finder is also used extensively by maritime professionals and mariners. Our global AIS coverage is impressive and expanding all of the time as we add new AIS feeds and receivers. Please check regularly to see the latest coverage. Pinkfroot are committed to customer service and continually improve our Ship Finder apps based on feedback.

  • Rubbish

    Hi don’t try this app. I spent half a day trying to get it going and I think it’s rubbish, and would like my money back.
  • Ship finder that can’t find ships

    By Jandlbessell
    Should have read reviews before wasting my money. I’m coastal south Australia and see ships regularly but they don’t show on ship finder. No not filtered. I only paid for the app to see cruise ship locations and this won’t show Princess cruise ships. Please don’t waste your money google will give you a better result for free.
  • Does not work

    By Alan Australia
    I could not find the vessel I wanted to track. I tried to look in the area I know the vessel is in, no luck. My 1st search was unsuccessful so I will reverse the purchase. No good
  • I would like a refund

    By Lawrence3000
    Really lacking. Does not show many ships, inaccurate and cannot search.
  • Not too bad

    By colourbird
    This app shows good info and photos of the ships when they are in a location with coverage. Unfortunately it doesn’t show the last known location so sometimes it is difficult to locate a vessel.

    I know there is around 40 vessels that are using AIS around me, not one of them is visible using this app. They show up on my vessel’s AIS and on the MarineTraffic app, which I will be using after I delete this one.

    Doesn’t work for me
  • No ships

    By Apex mojo
    The app doesn’t show any ships when Can see them outside my house. Other similar apps show the ships as seen
  • Can I get my money back?

    By Carcarriers
    Other Free apps seem to do a better job, I can’t find the car carriers I’m looking for.
  • No value to me

    By dreamtardus
    This app is useless to me as it only provides for shipping in Capital cities. Not any at sea along Australian coast or around smaller shipping ports.
