Ship Finder App Description

Ship Finder shows live moving ships on a worldwide map. The intuitive design combined with incredible performance puts you in control. Watch in full screen, view in AR, search, add filters and so much more! Ship Finder has been top rated and top ranking since 2009 and covers most of the world, tracking 20,000+ ships simultaneously. Our incredible app performance means that you can see all tracked vessels at once - no clustering here! Simply tap a ship to see its name, type, photos, speed, dimensions and much more. Powerful features such as filters, search and the ability to save favourite ships are included. (You can choose Apple or Google maps too!). Add and browse bookmarks to saved locations around the globe to quickly navigate to areas or ports of interest. You can even use Augmented Reality (AR) view to identify ships out at sea using your device camera. Ship Finder works by picking up AIS ship feeds used by all passenger vessels, vessels over 300 tons and increasingly by smaller pleasure craft and yachts. This technology is actually faster than radar and is used by vessels for safety and navigation. Ship Finder provides near real time “virtual radar” AIS maps. It’s easy to use and is an amazing app for anyone interested in shipping, cruising and sailing in ports and locations across the world. It’s also great if you simply want to know what boats are out there or want to see where your friends and family are. Ship Finder is also used extensively by maritime professionals and mariners. Our global AIS coverage is impressive and expanding all of the time as we add new AIS feeds and receivers. Please check regularly to see the latest coverage. Pinkfroot are committed to customer service and continually improve our Ship Finder apps based on feedback.

    This app wont even show the tug boat I am on or any of the tugboats around me in my area am not impressed with this app if you are working on a tug don’t get this app
  • Disappointed

    By $$John2015
    I bought this to track a cruise I’m going on. It couldn’t find the ship even though it’s Carnival and shows up on other apps even the free ones. Don’t waste your money.

    Great program and it works great.
  • Ripped Off

    By Cookee80
    Not one Royal Caribbean cruise ship can be found. I want my money back, but I doubt that will happen. I should have read the reviews more closely.
  • Want my money back

    By eggfuyoung
    This is not what I wanted and now I’m trying to figure out how to get a refund.
  • Ships not found

    By calto46
    9 times out of 10 ships that I know are sailing do not show up on this app. In fact whole areas of the oceans are blacked out with no ships. Norwegian Jade for example is hardly ever there. APP is a waste of time!
  • Worthless

    By huhnbo
    Type in a ship nothing I want my money back type in Disney magic shows nothing what a worthless app
  • Boat Not Find her

    By Stevieboymur
    This is the worst app I have ever seen. I also had to pay for it which makes it even more painful.
  • HORRIBLE-No ships show up

    By SMS-7127
    Not a single ship shows up, don’t waste the $5. Instead get the Marine Traffic app.
  • Doesn’t work in my area

    By AlaskaFairie
