What's New in Version 7.0
Updated for the latest devices, including new image pinch & zoom, improved Quiz section with more questions, better styling and lots of other small tweaks for better performance. Thank you to everyone who has made suggestions on how to make the app even better than before!
Incredibly disappointing, incorrect information
With an exam coming up I downloaded this up predominates for the 'test yourself' function, I have been sorely disappointed to find that I cannot progress past question 5/6 in any of the 3 quizzes due to incorrect data on the app that means all answer options are wrong and therefore you cannot progress forward. I have emailed your app support out of courtesy to inform you of the errors and not even had a reply which has led me to writing this review.
To the app buyers, do t waste your money until the app has had an update/ been fixed.. There are others out there that are similar and function perfectly like 'Buoys & Lights' and 'Marine Education'
Great App, recommended
Good info, nice graphics, and has been really usefull. Good for skippers, crew and anyone doing a course. I can recommend this. The quiz sections work well, and are a great way to double check what you think you know! I know loads of people who use it.
Very very expensive. Badly written. Inaccurate. Much better alternatives.
