Smartphone Apps for Boaters (32)

No matter which genre of smartphone you own or are thinking to buy. The apps that are available will have an influence on how happy you are with the phone. There are plenty of top quality apps that you can download. However for me There's always a remarkable sub-selection of apps that are totally free. 

The wonderfully named 'Android' phone seems to have cornered the market in the same way that VHS did with tape systems. Android's open source strategy is the main factor for its success. Being a free platform has expanded the Android device install base, which in turn has driven growth in the number of third party multi-platform and mobile operator apps available.

If you're going abroad travelling within the EU and intending to hire a vehicle the European Commission's free Going Abroad app provides handy information on speed limits and other legal requirements for each European country.

Use the European Road Safety App to find all important road safety rules applying to the roads in Europe.  

In addition, downloading a translation app like the free Google Translate can help you resolve a language hassle in most foreign languages.

If you are reading this posting the chances are that you do a bit of blog reading/creating and have a smartphone. I use a laptop on the boat, I use a PC when we are at home and now I have started to use a Blogger app for the smartphone everywhere else.
