Seriously please redesign this app, the user interface always hangs at start up and the text is too small on images, this may be ok on a tablet but it's useless on a phone. I'm currently doing my day skipper and was hoping this would be an aid and quick reference. Unfortunately a book or ebook is much easier to use. Take a look a the boating reference app if you want an example of a good app. I've been developing software my self for over 20 year and very rarely feel the need to comment to such a degree.
