Not worth it
This app contains only a modest proportion of all the chart symbols and it's difficult to find what you want. I bought it as a revision tool for Yachtmaster and found it pretty useless, but I could also imagine it's also tough to use if you're poring over a chart during passage planning and want an explanation of some little-known symbol. The difficulty of cross-indexing pictures into words isn't wholly the fault of the app, but nevertheless, this one fails the test.
This app is a single page app only! Scroll through the list. Worst of all it does not describe what symbols mean!
