This application is Anchor watch PRO, position logger, SMS alarm and Sound Alarm and it monitors device's current location and inform you if the location of the device moves to far away from the set anchor. In that case, it will sound an alarm and (if you select so) send an SMS.
Please know that the performance and accuracy of the Anchor watcher application depends on the hardware and software of the used device. If you have bad reception, please move the device to location that has better satellite reception!
Because this application uses GPS to monitor movement, it will consume battery little quicker than normally. I suggest you charge your device while using the app, although it's not necessary and the impact on battery live strongly depends on device used! There is also advanced option to set GPS update interval which might greatly improve battery live.
Additional PRO features:
♦ Shows anchor history
♦ Confirmation patterns to avoid mistakes
♦ More data on notification bar
♦ Low battery alarm
♦ No GPS signal alarm
♦ Advanced SMS options
♦ no advertisements
♦ more upcoming things

Application requires some permissions. Let me explain why:
♦ Fine GPS location: To monitor your location
♦ Send and receive SMS: To alert you of drift with SMS and to respond to your keywords
♦ Full internet access: To use a map
With new version, it will require some additional permissions. Although I am trying to minimise the permissions, there are various parts of the app that require such permissions. Once new version is rolled out to all users, I will update permission description.
This application could be used on boats, sailboats, motorboats and any other things that could freely move.
In case of bugs:
Every application sooner or later has a bug. If you find one, please inform me so I can solve the issue. You can also contact me if you have suggestion for improving the app. I will gladly listen to your suggestions!
IF GPS doesn't work, please bear in mind that it might be hardware issue, as some devices have trouble getting good GPS fix! I can not do anything about that, nor can any other app.
If you want to post negative comments, PLEASE CONTACT ME FIRST on [email protected] so we can solve the issue(or add a feature). I can not respond to comments so I can not help with issues there.
Please keep in mind that application is provided "AS-IS". It should not be relied on to and I shall not be responsible for any problem/expense/life threatening situation it could cause.
♦ If you have any issues, please write me an email and you will get fast response!
