The problem with much software is that the builder is so close to it he cannot understand what confuses the user. You won’t understand how this thing works right away. I’ve taken two weeks already and I don’t get it yet.

Kindly visit SafeAnchor.Net for Operational Manual. It is very easy to use. User interface is simplified and great new features have been added.

Don’t waste your money

I was looking forward to using this app after reading the reviews but lets give an honest review under practical application. I sail/anchor in Mexico where there is little cellular coverage in remote places. The first night we used it the alarm went off at 2 a.m., after checking my other anchor drag apps we determined we had not moved at all. The next day went to check our position and the app had lost my position all together and I had to set to last position. I used the app for three weeks straight every day and it frequently just lost our position and had to be reset to last position, I had to set the position manually every time, and the use of the app is not intuitive as you would expect it to be. It would be nice to have the app always be on so you could quickly glance at your position and know everything is ok but it goes to sleep and most time just loses you position. This app is frighting enough I would even like my money back and I will not use this in the future.

Developer Response ,

Background mode must be enabled for the app in order to prevent this issue. Kindly send an email to support team if you need further assistance.

Not Reliable...but a well planned app

I downloaded this to monitor remotely, it’s one of the only anchor alarm apps that allows real-time tracking via another device. This is a fantastic feature. Unfortunately the app on my iPhone and two other iPhones will freeze. We live aboard our yacht and our anchor position is vital to our safety. This is a secondary anchor alarm to supplement our main chartplotters anchor alarm which is rock solid, however even as a backup, it has to work. Any freezing or crashing is simply unacceptable for something so important. If the developers can get that issue worked out, this will be the best alarm app on the store by miles.

Developer Response ,

Kindly upgrade the latest version in order to fix the issue. It is no more freeze or unexpected crash. It is reliable.
