Anchor Alarm App

Does anyone have a recommendation for a good anchor alarm app?

Re: Anchor Alarm App

Haven't used it myself but in the past a number of people recommended Drag Queen. Not sure if they liked the app or just the clever name.

Re: Anchor Alarm App

We reviewed just about all of them last summer on a thread I started. The best one is the anchor alarm on the INavx chart plotter app for iPad and iPhone.

I think I purchased five to ten apps to review. Some are absolute garbage.

Wow, time flies.... it was actually nearly two years ago.

Here's a link to the thread where many alarms were discussed:

Re: Anchor Alarm App

iDevice or Android?

I use SlimJim's Anchor Alert on Android and am very happy with it.
