You have to sign up for it to work and it says they will send you an email to complete the sign up process but after 3 days no email so I cannot even try it. I emailed them and no response Update as of 9/29/18 Whenever you jump to another app and come back to this app it as if you are opening it for the first time. PITA. And for some reason the first page it opens is the iOS Settings page EVERY TIME! It is a very helpful app if it wasn't such a pain to use
The app has apparently replaced the previous mAIS app. In the past I used the mAIS app all the time when out on my boat so that my friends and family could see where we were boating. My brother also used it when we was out and I could track his progress. This new app does not seem to work. Both my brother and I have been trying to use it over the last few weeks without much success. We are logged into accounts, we have mmsi numbers registered, we are cruising in areas with decent cell coverage. It just doesn't seem to report our position. Perhaps if I bought the upgrade to the "pro" version it would work but why would I do that. Based on the description of the app, the free version should simply report position.
This app requires that you set up an account, which is completely understandable. The problem is the registration page is beyond unusable- will not tell you what the password creation requirements are- indecipherable anti-robot mechanism. End of the day you will walk away not being able to use this app and will have wasted 30 minutes...
Immediately gives network error even though other apps and web browsing works fine
