iPhone/iPad Apps - sugestions

Hello,

I'm developing an iPad/iPhone Apps startup and would like to hear about your ideas regarding nautical apps you would like to have on your mobile devices.

Thank you all!

I stumbled across these recently. They appear that they would be handy and all for around 10 quid. I have not used them so cannot comment on their content and quality.
Rules of the Road, Buoys and Lights, Nav Lights and Shapes iGlimpse - Apps for iPhone, iPad & Android, made in Devon, England

You just never know when you need to check on something.

Might want to consider devoping for windows 8 instead or in addition to. Lots of decent nav apps on iOS, not as much in apps, although there are some decent windows programs.

Granted there are fewer devices out there today, but this is likely going to change quickly.

You bet!

Every single windows 8 computer will have the windows app store. So even if you think their tablets aren't going to be successful, there will be many devices with it.

I do believe though there tablets are going to do well. Not only do they make good tablets and work as well as the iPad and android, but the pro versions also run any windows application.

The only thing I wouldn't bet money on is the success of windows phone, but I do think it has a good chance of competing with iPhone and android.

I've used all 3 devices and while I liked the iPhone and Android, I love my windows phone.
