Marine - Sail Master HD
By Leland Roys
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Gyroscope powered Sailboat/Ship inclinometer plus GPS Navigation! Custom designed beautiful Marine gauges let you know just what your Sailboat/Cruiser is doing.
** Featured "What's Hot!" iTunes Navigation apps **
Not like the older accelerometer based apps, this uses the real Gyroscope, it is super accurate and never needs calibration.
Inclinometer based on the Gyroscope and now also a great GPS navigation backup all in one.
Compass Heading in Magnetic Degrees
Speed in Knots
Automatic warning if compass needs to be calibrated or is near interference.
What's New in Version 1.3
Added a one screen main console, with all gauges in view!
Touch any of the gauges to go to the larger version of that display.
I like it!
Simple, attractive, inexpensive app that does what it says, and backed by a software writer who clearly loves what he does.
Sail Master HD displays all the basic instruments I need aboard my little day sailer. Readable from a distance, I can keep the iPad mounted forward in the cabin and keep track of them from the cockpit (it's a small boat!)
It's simply displays live information from the compass, gyroscope and GPS receiver, together or separately, beautifully rendered in brass and wood. How simple is that! Simple, like from when Apps were Applets, and not (gi-normous) Applications. Makes me feel nostalgic. Nostalgic? The coder even answers e-mail support questions personally, promptly, like right after you send them! And he only charges two bucks for the app! And there's no in-app purchases to unlock features!
This program takes me back to the early days of the App Store. And that's a good thing! I rate this a strong buy.
