    Been using this app. for 6 over years now. With new phone, the GPS accuracy is excellent. Easy to use. Leaving phone on boat to alert another works well (at least when we tested it, thankfully never needed it yet!).

    I've been using it for 2 years, tried others, but this is the best. Update 2021, still enjoying this app. Awesome tool! Must have for the serious boater. Heavy trawler, 45' LOA Cruising remote PNW/Inside Passage fjords.

    It works! Downloaded the app and dropped the anchor. I was able to get the alarm set and it woke me early morning when we swung too far. The Help section definitely does help - well written and useful. I should have used 10 min to really learn how to use it and how good the app is. Easy on the battery and good insurance when at anchor.

    Very easy to use for basics while learning all the perks! Had to get used to the GPS accuracy alarm but once I did, it is GREAT! We love the call another phone feature. So very useful. Also love that it doesnt eat up my battery. I leave it on all day and night. I also enjoy seeing the track history. You have made a nice product. I sent an email in with questions on the full version. No response yet. Hope to hear something soon.

    I had used Drag Queen until they stopped supporting it and installed MAW just before a 2018 hurricane was due. As I was checking the advanced instructions I heard a bang. Then The MAW alarm started. It was a moonless night and I didn't realize that my mooring line had broken and I was heading for the rocks. This little app saved my boat. As an aside, I'm impressed with the advanced features and the incredibly clear and complete instructions.

    Powerful, but to get the best performance read the help file, understand it, select your settings, and test at home before using. I didn't and wish I had, so learn from my mistake. The GPS system accuracy varies minute to minute, which you need to consider when using.

    We are using the app right now at anchor in Puget Sound, Washington. This great app works consistently and gives us much better peace of mind that we are not dragging in the high current anchorages we frequent. We drop the hook, press set the anchor, set a swing radius, and relax. Having it on the phone in my pocket and not having to go to the plotter makes it easier to check for dragging in the middle of the night when the currents change. Looking forward to a paid version to get rid of ads.

    it's the best amchor alarm I've found yet. easy to use and pretty reliable. it is dependent on the phones GPS signal, just like any other, so when gps accuracy is low, you do get a false alarm. just like any other.

    Good app but sometimes stops working so i have to check it periodically. I sent a message to the company three weeks ago and no answer. Also, I would like the app to open in swing view but can't find a way to make it do that. Other than that, the app works well.

    I have just started using MAW but so far it is better than three others I've tried. This might be the one! If I can figure out the text alarm feature or if it can relay data to a remote mobile phone it will 5 stars.
