Quick! What's that ship's name and where is it heading? We all know that AIS can help you answer those questions, and now there's a novel way to access that important info from your iPhone or iPad. Boat Watch Pro has an augmented reality view that uses your device's camera to identify vessels in a real-time photo image. If you're tracking a boat with AIS, you can also use this app to set up alerts to when it arrives or departs. Pretty cool!
