Re: New Android Sailing App : SailFreeGPS

I like it! Is it possible to make a pay version without the adds?

Re: New Android Sailing App : SailFreeGPS

Hello,


New release including speed average and easier way to display waypoint distance 



By the way, you can adjust the anchor location using the track recorded on the map.

Re: New Android Sailing App : SailFreeGPS

Fred, I originally liked the idea of this application; however, you have fallen victim to "feature creep."

You designed an application for analysis of sail trim. PERFECT! It is a great app for racers, performance cruisers, and for open ocean sailors to determine the polars for their boats prior to heading into the blue.

But, adding tracks, anchor alarms, etc. is unnecessary feature creep. The best 'phone' apps are those that do one thing really well, and are easily intuitive.

Too bad.

Re: New Android Sailing App : SailFreeGPS

Hello "Discovery",


I take your point... KEEP THIS APP SIMPLE...

I can also ensure that each feature unsed (or not in the active screen) doan't affect the battery !!!

I can also affirm that each feature not used (or not in the active screen) doesn't affect the battery!!! It's one of my main concern!!!

I concur.



I raised my concern about this in April last year to no avail

I really liked the simple (and ad free) early versions, but now it's got too "busy".

You're doing a great job with the app. It's been interesting to see how it has evolved.

Re: New Android Sailing App : SailFreeGPS

Now that this is an ad supported app with a paid premium version, promoting it on CF is against the forum rules.
