An iOS app for finding great anchoring spots

Hi all!

Together with my 4 good friends and sailing enthusiasts we are always looking for memorable sailing experiences. During our trips on the Mediterranean Sea, North Sea, and sailing around the Canary Islands and Thailand, we found that there was no simple way to have the essential info about marinasand anchorages at hand. Review, great anchores etc.

We decided to create it ………………….a free app that helps you find that hidden gems and get the most out of your next sailing experience!

We are still in development phase (iOS app) and we are learning every day. This is your chance to work with us to influence how the app will look and perform.

If you want to participate, please visit

moorspots.com/beta-test/

follow the instructions and let us know what you think.

Thanks a million!

The Moorspots team

Sounds a lot like Active Captain. I think you are going to have significant competition.

Re: An iOS app for finding great anchoring spots

Hi all,

Just wanted to let you know that we have done it. We launched the app in the iOS App store. No more hassle with installation of beta-test versions, just click and go like you are used to.

App store link: https://itunes.apple.com/nl/app/id1253338644?mt=8

You can try it out when planning your next sailing trip.

Thanks,

Marco

Re: An iOS app for finding great anchoring spots

Does this include the inland rivers and Great Lakes?

Yes, this includes those marinas and anchorages as well. Not all lakes and rivers are present yet in the app though. We as a community can all add en review spots.

We need help from you to grow the number of spots and to have objective reviews.

Thanks!

Re: An iOS app for finding great anchoring spots

Hi all, I wanted to let you know that we have built two new features for you in the moorspots app. The search functionality and the discover section. In the discover section we will place amazing spots in the spotlight, and list the recently added spots so that you are always up to date.

You can try it yourself by downloading it from the AppStore. Curious to hear what you think of it.

Cheers, Marco
