My two most powerful apps in a bundle to save some bucks.
The Logbook App is an automated electronic logbook on your iPhone. Logbook can automatically fill out your vessel's log, or you can manually enter data as well. Though Logbook is designed by sailors for sailors, a powerboat owner will find it worthwhile as well.
# Automatically add information to your Logbook while you enjoy sailing.
# Automatic weather information added to each log entry:
- overall weather (sunny, rain, fog, etc)
- barometric pressure (also from iPhone 6 barometer possible)
- wind direction and speed
- degree of cloudiness
- air temperature
- water temperature
- wave height
# Additional data fields for each log entry (added automatically):
- Course Over Ground (COG)
- Speed Over Ground (SOG)
- Position in WGS84 coordinates and as text (nautical geoencoded see below)
- GPS accuracy
- Engine hours
# Automatic Position Recognition (i.e., "2.4 nm south of Cape Savudrija")
# additional fields
#Add pictures to you log records
# Local sunrise and sunset times
# Measure the vessel's angle of heel and add to Logbook with one click
# Watch your colored (based on speed) track in the map
# Amazing navigation lights quiz
# Data can be exported
- as KML
- as PDF
- as GPX
- as CSV (e.g. for Excel)
- or as SQLite for database developers.
# Checklists for safety briefing and packaging
Please Note: the background auto-logging feature will enable the GPS to run in the background, dramatically reducing battery life. It is recommended that your iPhone be plugged in for this operation. Red borders in the app will indicate that this feature is enabled in order to remind you.

Description for Anchor Alarm App:
I had two simple Requirements to a Anchor Alarm App:
1. The adjustable swing arc should assume every possible shape, as the maximum distance could be different to each
2. I would like to wake up even if I sleep like a log. Also in case of other problems like poor GPS accuracy.
I'm convinced, with this App your anchor watch will be improved in many ways!
For sure you now the problem after you set the anchor successful, you would like to set an Anchor Alarm for your anchorwatch. However, the wind might shift from East to West in a few hours. The bay has shallows. Well, with Anchor Alarm you've the ability to set your swing shape individually to this situation!
All feature at a glance:
§ Individual shapes instead of a fix swing arc
§ Alarm sound which will wake you
§ Ship dimensions in true-to-scale representation in the map
§ Optional alarm on low battery
§ Optional alarm on poor GPS accuracy
§ Optional alarm on low volume / silent mode
§ Optional alarm if headset is connected
§ All alarms are active in the background and even if you lock your iPhone.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. So please do not forget your 12V charger ;-)
