Ship Finder Free
By pinkfroot limited
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Ship Finder shows live moving ships on a worldwide map.
You can even use Augmented Reality (AR) view to identify ships out at sea using your device camera.
Ship Finder has been top rated and top ranking since 2009 and covers most of the world, tracking 20,000+ ships simultaneously.
Our incredible app performance means that you can see all tracked vessels at once - no clustering here!
Simply tap on a ship to see it's name, type and destination. Colour coded icons make identification easy too.
If you like this app you'll love the full version of Ship Finder.
The full version includes a huge array of additional features including route history, search, filters, bookmarks, photos, the ability to add favourite ships and much more.
Ship Finder works by picking up AIS ship feeds used by all passenger vessels, vessels over 300 tons and increasingly by smaller pleasure craft and yachts. This technology is actually faster than radar and is used by vessels for safety and navigation.
Ship Finder provides near real time “virtual radar” AIS maps. It’s easy to use and is an amazing app for anyone interested in shipping, cruising and sailing in ports and locations across the world. It’s also great if you simply want to know what boats are out there or want to see where your friends and family are. Ship Finder is also used extensively by maritime professionals and mariners.
Our global AIS coverage is impressive and expanding all of the time as we add new AIS feeds and receivers. Please check www.shipfinder.co regularly to see the latest coverage.

Feel ripped off by developers
I paid for the Ship finder and plane finders apps like many others, and now they have decided that your paid for versions will now just be the same as the free versions as the have now combined the apps into one bundle. This is a rip off and borderline theft. I would like the return of the functionality I paid for or a full refund for both apps and I may then purchase the new combined one. Don't spend a penny on their products as you stand a chance of being ripped off too.
Downloaded this app to save me using vesselfinder via safari. Needn't have bothered. I'm sat typing this looking down on the caldera of Santorini. The seaway is full of cruise liners, passenger ferries, and cargo ships. All of them have ais information available to view, live time, through vesselfinder, or any one of the other myriad online services. According to this app, however, the nearest ship to my location is approximately 100 miles away. Complete waste of time, thank goodness I didn't buy the "pro" version!
Missing ship info
Downloaded the app whilst in Durban, South Africa as I have a sea view from where I'm staying. Unfortunately whilst looking out onto an Indian Ocean full of ships the app tells me there aren't any when I can clearly see more than 10 large cargo ships heading in and out of the harbour. They possibly have a similar issue that flightradar24 has with African coverage.
