Great App for Everyone on the Water

Sam Bello

This is a must have app for anyone who is out on the water for any purpose. Whether you are cruising, fishing, waterskiing, or tubing, this app can be of use to you. Want to meet a group of friends on the water? Done. Need some help from fellow boaters? Easy. Can't find a good fishing or diving hotspot or a waterfront restaurant? Probelm solved. The POIs are very helpful in helping you navigate the water. This one app is all you need to stay safe on the water, while boosting your amount of fun. There are some bugs, as it is brand new, but that is expected and it still does its job.
The more users the app has the better!

Good app

Patient Nurse

This app is kind of like a reverse GPS lookup, because it can let your friends know where to find you at the lake. The SOS is a good feature to help you out if you get in trouble on the water. It lets other boaters find you and bring you gas or give you a tow if you need it. I think the app is good and useful as is, and it will be even better as it continues to be improved with user feedback. The developer is very hands-on, and he listens to the users.

I use RaftUp every weekend!


RaftUp saves me from playing phone tag with my friends while out in the water and I can quickly plan my trip. Most of all I love the safety it could provide if need to share my location or alert friends or family for help!
