    Great List!
    You’ll need to add the PredictWind app once apple approves us! ha

      What wind model are you going to be using? MM5? WRAMS (like Sailflow)?

        Not MM5 or WRams, but a Proprietary model licensed to PredictWind. Developed over 30 years by a team of research scientists and tested on ACUP campaigns.

        You could say its pretty good 😉

        We are aiming to get Apple approval in June. It’s bit more complicated than the android store!

        Android app was released in march: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.predictwind.mobile.android

    You missed what I consider the top app in both apple and droid formats: Navionics charts.

    Nice Joan, cool page! you could make it look more useful if you can add links of maps or Appstore for the above list of maps.

    It saves lot of time for the user to find the map! Good Luck!

    I use simple and easy-to-read Marine Instrument Display for iPad. Shows basic GPS data and heeling.

    MID Wifi is better as it shows the Nmea data as well.

    I’ve recently completed and published a “Sailing Primer” as an iBook for the iPad.

    It’s a basic introduction to sailing for novices that helps get them started. Terminology plus basic skills and suggestions on where to get more information.

    I made a small sailors app that can do travel, distance and speeds calculations. Also distances to horizon and visibility of a lighthouse can be calculated.

    Learned all these calculations when attending sailor school but decided to make an app that can handle it as soon as i started developing on my own

    My app is in App Store:

    You should also give a try to Marina Mobile. It allows to create a virtual regatta by placing buoys on a map, and then go racing on your boat. The app records everything (speed, heading, when you pass along one of the buoys you’ve placed on the map…). Then you can share your race and get a ranking among your friends. It comes with some nices features too: augmented reality, morse translator/emitter, compass…
    Designed mainly for Switzerland, but works anywhere else – and it’s free.
