Clunky! Neither one thing or the other.

This app is not a chartplotter as many of the reviewers on here seem to have expected. Better to think of it as a folio of charts that are overlaid on each other. I like Imray’s charts and their pilot books and I appreciate being able to view the charts on a 12.9 inch iPad screen.

However, there are too many glitches for this app to properly deliver a good user experience. Help within the app is limited. I had to go to the website FAQ to solve some display issues.

Most importantly from a navigation point of view, the important notes on regular printed charts are not available, so information on restricted areas or issues where more information is required, simply aren’t available. It’s not acceptable to say that I should go and buy the paper charts as well when everything is shifting to digital.

Where other charting providers are working to provide fully integrated solutions, Imray’s priority seems to be how to digitise their existing paper assets as a rearguard action to protect their revenue.

I rely on the Imray Tides app almost to the exclusion of all else, but whoever planned the rest of their digital offering doesn’t seem to have done so from a real world user’s perspective.

Lacks basic functionality

There is so much missing from this app is difficult to know where to start. Creating a route in a hurry, or easily, which is essential when a course is being given out at the start of a race is practically impossible. The charts don't show the names of buoys and you can't create a route from the list of waypoints. Lazy, ill thought out and basically useless. No evidence that any form of service design has been used here.

A Great Navigational Aid

After using this app for a year from Dover to Cape Wrath and the western isles I can only say how reassuring it has been to have and use when the main plotter has locked up or the visibility has closed in or when you just want a quick confirmation of your position. When used in conjunction with Imray’s Tidal app it has provided accurate information to plan and navigate successfully the Corrywrechen, Sound of Luing or the Doris Mohr and more at springs and neaps. It took a good while to fully comprehend its workings for this OAP but it has all fallen into place now. I used ENC’s for 20 years before retiring and though they were all singing, all dancing, now find this Imray app refreshingly simple to use. I highly recommend it.
