We’ve listened to your wishes and developed a new version of FleetMon for all mobile devices!
FleetMon mobile for Android devices has just been delivered to the Google Play Store.
The app passed all sea trials and provides you with traffic displays from all around the globe. Use the ship and port search to look up ship positions, their particulars and schedules. Your My Fleet list is synchronized with the website so you can keep track of your favorite ships. And guess what: the app is free of charge!

By the way, FleetMon mobile will run on almost all smartphone platforms. If you have a phone that does not run on Android, such as Blackberry or Windows Phone, just visit http://m.fleetmon.com or open the QR code below:
Today we’ve got a holiday here in Germany. While thinking about reformations, why not use the sparetime to update your version of FleetMon mobile?
The just released version 1.8 is now available at the app store and because we like gifts, here are some promo codes, for the fast ones…

The Fleetmon Team is thrilled to follow the racing yacht SPEEDSAILING SEB during the race “Round Skagen”. The SEB is a 60 footer, former Volvo Ocean Race participant now based in the Fleetmon hometown Rostock, and the “Round Skagen Race”, leading 510 nm from Helgoland Island around Denmark to Kiel, is said to be the longest and most challenging high seas race in Germany.
Coming right on the heels of the Marathon, this is another yacht choosing the FleetMon Satellite Tracking service to track their voyage and keep friends, families and partners up to date.
And, what’s more: They are currently leading, with some 15 nm lead on the runner-up! Go, SEB!
We’ll keep you posted with updates here and on our Twitter account. German-speaking users may also check out the Speedsailing Facebook page and their blog.
Update for your viewing pleasure:
Shouldn't take that long.
I was told that nobody likes to read long texts on the internet. So, here’s the essential stuff:
FleetMon Photobox 1.2 – a tiny app to browse our community’s gorgeous vessel pictures – just survived the approval process and should be visible in the AppStore really soon.
Beside the usual bug fixes, this version supports the iPad in its native shinyness… enjoy the class ship photography on FleetMon.com on your sofa… it’s “couch spotting” ;-)
As always: Thanks to the contributors! Boys, you have no idea how much we love your awesome work.
[Update] It’s there. Grab it while it’s hot!
If you’re using FleetMon mobile and interested in short messages about whats going on, consider to follow us on Twitter.
The funny thing is that this account is driven by the oldest one here. :-)
thanks to all our members, and a happy new year.

Good news for all top ship spotters on Fleetmon.com: If you have more than 500 active ship photos, your account has just been upgraded to a free Fleetmon Unlimited plan.
All AIS sharers have already received a free upgrade during the weekend, so that now all the kind people driving the Fleetmon community get a little reward for their contributions.
(If you think that you should receive an upgrade, too, but have been left out by mistake, just get in touch and we will fix that quickly!)
There seems to be an issue with a small numer of accounts and their respective right groups, which prevents those users from loggin in with the iPhone App. Please check your accounts via the website.
We will continue to deliver the best vessel tracking App available for the iPhone and iPad.
What’s New in this Version * NOTE: FleetMon Mobile needs free account on www.fleetmon.com website (formerly digital-seas.com), please check your username/Password on “Xtra” tab *
We’ve launched a complete new companion website: www.fleetmon.com, the first open Ship Wiki on the web, delivering access to more then 250.000 vessel datasets. FleetMon Mobile is now giving you direct mobile access to this huge database.

It’s simply fantastic to see the great pictures added on Fleetmon.com every day, shared by people with the same passion on ships and photography (A huge “thumbs up” to all of you!), and just about every day there’s a real pearl among the new uploads.
Now, we felt we must give this fantastic photo stuff the attention that it deserves, because even the most fascinating photos sometimes just remain hidden somewhere in the huge Fleetmon database.
That’s why we make a fresh start and now have the pleasure to announce something completely new: The Digital Seas Photobox! It’s a mobile phone “App” for iPhones and Android phones, presenting the newest and the best images on Digital Seas, galleries of cruise ships, night shots, majestic tall ships, impressive offshore vessels, powerful tugs in action, highest rated pictures…
Photobox on the iPhone
Lean back and browse through the galleries – on your sofa, while waiting at the bus stop or on the next ship to arrive. You can save your favorite images in “My Photobox” and carry them with you for offline viewing.
See what it looks like on the new Photobox page, download from Android Market and AppStore and give it a try. The Photobox has new stuff for you every day!
We hope you like the new Photobox App and are looking forward to your comments and ideas! Enjoy!
