Rated 5/5 based on 3 customer reviews.
I've spent three nights out on two separate trips and this app has worked excellently, i also purchased the two 99 cent apps that are available on the store now and was disappointed, they are missing necessary features to make them useful and are unstable one crashed repeatedly every few minutes. This app has worked exactly as described both in the foreground, the background, and while the phone is asleep. Fantastic!
I've also chatted with the developer by email and he Is committed to the future development and support of the app including some really cool and useful features such as on the fly switching of the anchor location.
Don't hesitate to buy this app as a backup to your current gps nav station, or as part of a standalone gps solution along with the excellent navionics app for navigating. the best part is you can take it downstairs into the bunk with you and check the anchor without getting out of bed!
Excellent App ! :-)
Works great and love that it works in the background and while the phone is alseep. This is a great back-up to expensive GPS and big energy saver for my boat.

This app works great, with one shortfall. It doesn't run in the background. As long as you leave the app running in the foreground, it works great. If you exit the app, the alarm wont sound. No big deal. Just make sure the app is running in foreground and your ringer is turned up before you hit the hay.
Other than that, works great...I slept much better at anchor knowing my hook was not dragging!
UPDATE: developer has updated program to run in the background. I use this program all the time. Changing rating to 5 stars.
