Transas' iSailor App Gets Android Debut
Transas’ chart plotter and AIS Viewer navigation app iSailor, available to iOS device users since 2010, is now also available in an Android version.
Described as an easy-to-use navigational system for amateur seafarers, Transas said iSailor is used by hundreds of thousands of sailors around the world. Intended for use on boats and yachts, the app presents navigation information, electronic charts and other content.
iSailor for Android features the primary functions and options required for navigation included in the iOS version, and is powered by Transas iTX-97 marine vector charts.
Transas said its developers are also working on the possibility for Android tablet and smartphone users to restore all folios and options previously bought for the iOS version of iSailor. This feature, due for release in late 2015, will enable a cross-platform solution for users operating multiple devices.
The app is free to dowload. Chart folios are available for users as in-app purchases in the application’s Chart Store. iSailor app is compatible with phones and tablets running Android operating system 4.4 or higher.
