  • 5 stars if it could be updated more often Apr 25, 2018

    By Mikie75
    Excellent app. If only there was a way to do a refresh of my fleet on demand. I don’t understand why it is not updating. First 3-4 days, it worked great. A large cruise ship is not updating and the last 2 days it has lagged 5-10 hours before updating when everything else around it is updating fine. This evening again it has not updated for almost 6 hours and shows still underway when in fact the ship has been in port almost 3 hours. Too be even more frustrating, it is also not showing any other ships of any kind along a large stretch of the eastern shores of Japan. Makes no sense!

    I like it...when the updates are current. It gives very close to real time positions as well as other details about the vessels you are tracking. I would say it is 5 times better than the alternative: hoping for cell service in order to hear where you vessel is currently located. Two thumbs up!

    Good apps!!! even not recomended for actual navigation purposes but it gives specific basic and great information/data in particular areas..

    Nice Looking App! Unfortunately, it does not collect accurate movement data even with active subscription.
  • Not showing updates Jan 4, 2019

    By Ohkayygoldilox
    I very much appreciate being able to follow the vessel when there is hardly any communication for weeks and months at a time. I would give this app 5 stars, however, I have noticed there are times that it will not show the update or refresh. For example, I know the vessel I’m tracking left yesterday and it’s still showing it at at port with yesterday’s date, along with other ships around it. It usually refreshes every time I get on, but occasionally this happens.
  • Excellent application ! Mar 21, 2018

    By CAP_Tex
    I am professional mariner and very often in need to locate the vessel outside my onboard AIS receiver range. This application is really amazing ! Just one note - large passenger vessels do not show up ( at least in Persian Gulf ports ) most probably because of security concern and some kind of ‘plug’ outside this wonderful application. Yes, you shall activate premium subscription at the fraction of cost compare with other providers.
  • Amazing Ship Finding Application Apr 16, 2017

    By Tangerois3
    It works well and I love to track ships in the Tangier, Morocco port when I see a large ship and am curious as to its name and destination. Also, a friend is leaving tomorrow for Genoa, Italy via Barcelona and I'll be tracking her travels going and returning to Morocco in two months. I am considering upgrading to the paid version, but the free one works very well, and it's nice to see detailed photos of the vessels.
  • Issue opening FindShip Mar 11, 2020

    By luckyk2020
    I have been using this app for a long time, then I accidentally deleted the app. Ever since I did that, I have not been able to use the app, when I download the app, the icon will show up but it won’t open. I have even upgraded my phone from a 5 to a 8. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated
  • Best of the bunch but has slid backwards in quality Mar 20, 2020

    By Bodunn
    I’ve tried about 6 or 7 ship finder apps and this one is by far the best one but, as stated in the title, the quality has slid recently. One downside to the app is if the app quits working after an update to iOS or app itself the developers are very slow fixing the problem. Also, the search box is hard to read, needs more contrast with the background.

  • Does not update for hours Apr 16, 2018

    By Nicknamejustchooseone
    The app does not always provide real time updates. For example, it currently displays my friend’s boat 3 days ago and it’s traveling at 4mph, even though it’s in the same spot. I know that the boat isn’t there, based on the updates on Facebook. There are numerous times the update shows about 4-8 hours later, but currently it’s displaying their whereabouts from 3 day’s ago. I just updated the app in hopes it would fix the issue, but it’s still showing their status as of 3 days ago. A friend of mine is using another app and it is displaying their correct location and gives real time updates. 👎😭

    not reliable, timing is not accurate so I've uninstaller it and search for a much better app that is more accurate time wise, plus there are far too many adds.

    this was the great app up until recently and one that I depend on to be able to do my job correctly and over the past week or two it continuously says network error. at first I thought it was maybe my an issue with my cell phone provider and what's speaking with some co-workers that were also having issues and have different carriers we realized ultimately it is an app issue. there are quite a few of us that actually pay for the app and not being able to use it is getting ridiculous.

    I was really happy with the app until it stopped working after paying for it. It Just froze as I knew the ships were on the move and it forecast them as stationery, after four days it now says network problem. By all means get back to me with a fix, it was a good app. When it refreshes it shows no boats what so ever! I require a refund from you.
  • Won’t work on my iPhone May 20, 2020

    By Kitofcat
    When I first used this app, it was very helpful and timely. Since last year, it only works on my iPad. It won’t even show any maps on my phone. Since my phone is an XR, with the latest updates, I’m pretty sure that’s not the issue. I have deleted and reloaded it multiple times, in an attempt to get the program back. I have purchased the premium option for my iPad, in the hopes it will work as I deal with meeting boats in various places for delivery and pickup. Please revamp it for iPhones. Kathy Keeney

    By Festive McFrosty
    Been using this app for the past two months and it really works good, but now I don't know what happened, everytime I track the vessel it shows the same position as it was a couple of days ago, last updated details was May 23 when vessel is already underway and it remains with the same details up to date. Will give updated review & 5 stars when fixed. Thank you.
  • Aug 4, 2019

    By kevin jolly
    This app started out ok so I paid to upgrade but it progressively got worse over a short period of time and now it shows a network error and no vessels? I have contacted the developer twice but received no reply so assume this app is no longer operating. Obviously, I would therefore not recommend it to anyone and if the developer reads the reviews then I would like a reply and a refund! By the way, this should be a no star rating but you have to give at least one to be able to post a review!
  • Second review, this app is only good to take your money Dec 25, 2020

    By Iflypby
    Where should I start? I deleted the app and then tried to reinstall but app never loads. Prior to delete, vessel I was tracking has been in one port for three weeks and the app showed it in another port 300 miles away. Again, the Captain has told me that the vessels AIS system is functioning properly. It really is fraud by the developer. He either is not smart enough to make this app work, or it is like a Nigerian Prince scam to take your money. Who is going to complain about loosing $4.95? Great racket for the quasi developer.

  • Great Ship/Boat Tracker Oct 3, 2017

    By MikeinAstoria
    I live on the Pacific Northwest coast and see hundreds of vessels a week. This app is perfect to check them out. I can find their size, type, where they are flagged, their destination and many other facts about them. Many descriptions have photos. Tracks craft from small fishing boats to huge cargo and cruise ship.
  • None May 6, 2020

    By RfNewbern
    I cannot view boats between Lock 10 and Lock 11. I am a prime member as it shows on my account. I was charged 4.99 automatically. Can you clarify that for me? Thank you. Otherwise everything works fine. RfNewbern

  • Great app! Dec 7, 2017

    By KRKKAM
    Great for tracking your sea shipments. Even shows pilot boats and tugs that meet them and help them moor. Has marine chart option, but fonts are very small to read. Different type ships are in different colors. Would be nice to see sailboats in their own color. Satellite imagery shows great sea floor relief. Easy to identify vessels in the area.
  • Good App.. however May 23, 2018

    By TxnMariner
    I paid the $5 subscription fee in hopes of the advertisements going away but unfortunately they remain. I don’t want to pay for an app and have to sit through ads and have ads sitting at the bottom of the apps display. Otherwise the app is great.

  • Used to be better Jan 24, 2020

    By Danno8891
    The app stopped working earlier this year and then after a month or two randomly started working again. After it came back up, it stopped providing Classification Society info and date/time stamps on the tracking history. Still a pretty decent app, but customer support is non-existent: sent them several emails asking questions and never heard any response.

    By Chris Matters
    This was a great app and still is in part. Unfortunately it still does not work off the area around Cape Otway in Victoria, Australia. There is no response from the app provider from the many feedback notes I've sent over many months. Advising them on boat details, where they are shown incorrectly, is also ignored. It's a shame because this used to be the best ship watcher by far, I thought. 2nd June, 2020, Still does not work off the coast at Cape Otway in Victoria Australia. It's hardly remote
  • Freezes up Dec 6, 2019

    By Csr5210
    I really liked this app at first and would have given it a 5 star but that’s because it worked. After several attempts of deleting and re down loading it still isn’t working properly. It says zoom to find ships but it won’t zoom or allow you to search by name or use the icons. Time to delete

    By Steve Schmidt
    Was dead last summer. Broken with no response from developers for weeks, even from paying customers. (See other reviews.) Worked absolutely great for a year or so. Seems to be back online for me at the moment, but other reviews leave me skeptical. Holding with 3 stars until I'm sure.
  • Great but some issues Oct 18, 2018

    By favicemilk
    I love this app helps me check to see if my boyfriend is safe while he’s out working on boat out of state. Only problem is it would often have some glitches for example it would show a few days old dated or not constantly up to date on those ships and whereabouts are. It would be nice to have sea forecast in it too.
  • Sep 5, 2019

    By Steve Tousignant
    EDIT Sept.5/19 Reinstalled App, it is indeed working again, thank you! I enjoyed it while it worked, I could see what ships were going to be going through the locks near me, and head down if there was something interesting, ie, USS Little Rock before it got stuck in the ice here in Montreal, shortly after it was commissioned. Deleting until it either comes back, or I find something similar.

    Life is not back to normal, it appears that the issue has been only partially resolved, so back to 2 stars... Currently I have a "Network Error" showing when I try to look at any ships tracking, prior to this I had no vessels showing and prior to that another "Network Error". Trying to resolve with the app owner/developers via email has fallen on deaf ears. I won't be renewing in September if its not resolved.

    So with all the apps shortcomings, I purchased it for a year and it worked a slight better. Not $10 worth though. Beware though, as I'm finding out, Google is making it extremely difficult to find where I can cancel the membership when it's due to renew. They teased me though to let me know. I guess they figure most will just forget about it and keep paying for a good for nothing service. Sad. Google is a scam just like Facebook and Twitter.
  • Worked great two years ago Jul 12, 2019

    By CptReed
    First downloaded few years ago. It worked better than the AIS on my laptop. Now boats are in the same position for several days. When trying to find our customers along the Mississippi River for time management it get frustrating to say the least. If they can fix the bugs to low more accurate up to the minute that would be great. Then I will purchase the premium

    I used this app for shipwatching. It used to be good, but now it lags really badly so ship positions are really inaccurate, plus they removed the pictures. The lag isn't an issue with the ship because the ships show up with other apps just fine. Finally just paid $5.99 for Marine Traffic and it's so much better. It's a shame because I like the look of FindShip better, but it just isn't functional anymore.

    Hi there. For some time now I have been using your app to Find Ships. We come to Scottburgh Kwa Zulu Natal have a front caravan site over looking the sea. In the past years I have had excellent results' this year it does not pick up any ships even though i can see them at all. I have a friend who is having the same issue. We really like the app but as it is .. one star only. Can you assist us. Thanks.
