More than any other category in the appcatch.com fold, the navigation apps perhaps present the most value for users. Most navigation apps for Android and iPhone smartphones come with a cost, and sometimes that cost can be varied depending on the region.
Some Android navigation apps are cost $20 for a region in the United States and $50 for the entire country. Appcatch.com apps are free. Free to download, free to use.
Appcatch was launched in June of 2012 and initially served as free app market for users of the DIY app builder appsbar.com before expanding to include all app developers who wish to see their apps in the world-wide distribution channel. By making appcatch open to all app developers and app lovers, the company has furthered its goal of truly democratizing the app building and app user experience.
Appcatch.com navigation apps are also more niche based which allows for users to find specific apps that suit their needs.
If you are sailing the Mediterranean, a Google nav app for the Eastern Seaboard isn't going to get it done. But the appcatch Marina Greenwich app, from Altea, Spain is the perfect first mate on a trip around the sea. The app gives marina and harbor information, weather alerts, and nautical charts for navigating the harbors.
The new GL WindWaves app offers charts and projections for the Great Lakes, providing many of the same services as the Marina Greenwich app.
The app, optimized for both iPhone and Android smartphones, gives a wind and wave outlook for the Great Lakes covering anywhere from 0 to 120 hours out. The app provides charts that are updated twice daily to show the conditions on all of the lakes.
The GL WindWaves app taps into the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association for its chart information, easily the best resource in the world for nautical forecasts, making it a valuable tool for any vessel navigating these waters.
The WI Severe WX app covers severe weather in the Wisconsin area and is an offshoot of the trusted website. The app offers severe weather warnings, state radar maps, weather alerts and forecasts. The app also tracks lightning, rain, and wind by country and can even pull severe weather warnings from other regions of the country.
Like the GL WindWaves app, the WI Sever WX app becomes a valuable tool for travelers, long-haul truckers, and event planners in the region.
