Fleetmon :mobile v.1.5 out in the Apple store today

in Updates, FleetMon Apps by


Ooh Boy, this update marked the biggest effort since the release of Fleetmon :mobile in Fall 2009.
Make sure you set the right login data inside the iPhone settings to relish the brand new “My Fleet” function inside the app. We also started with a new Gallery feauture inside Fleetmon to show all this great vessel images in the best possible quality.
The open Digital-Seas community is growing fast. Enjoy perfect ship images, real time vessel tracking and live ship reports. Take part at our community forum.
With access to more then 60.000 unique vessel images, live coverage of over 20.000 vessels and a ship database with more then 120.00 records, Fleetmon is the fastest and feature richest App in the Store.

✔ new: “My Fleet” Function, manage the same Fleet list on your device and on website
✔ new: Gallery of Ship Images , only accept the best in quality in full resolution for the iPhone (retina) and iPad
✔ new: Feedback function: send reports and comments from inside the app
✔ new: support for portrait and landscape mode on all devices
✔ new: map display with literal of sea area and nearest port for better orientation
✔ new: reDesign of vessel detail tab for faster overview and readability
✔ new: listing of last ports now also available on detail page (just swipe down…)

✔ testet with iOS 4.3 on iPhone and iPad,
✔ local image cache for reducing the data volume of transmission
✔ new server for optimizing image resolution of various end-devices
✔ implementing functional authentification against digital-seas

✔ adoption to multitasking and memory available, saving all task states
✔ new APIs for all services, new servers (of course… :-)

• free Account on Digital-Seas Website needed, to make use of “My Fleet” and live tracking functions

We had 70% of our net-traffic due to scraping the content trough available interface-ports, so we decided to introduce a scheme of authentification. We expect discussions here, but there seems to be no other smart way solving the issue of dealing with servers under heavy load. In the end we have to secure our fair users and support them with a stable service. There is a good place inside the forum to discuss this topic:

Fleetmon mobile for iPhone v.1.0 released

in Updates, FleetMon Apps by

Late last week we put the finishing touches to a very special project we’ve been wanting to share with you for a while now. After many weeks of burning the midnight oil at JAKOTAs ofice in an effort to squeeze into it every drop of spotting goodness, we’ve finally completed work on the Fleetmon mobile app for the iPhone and sent it over to the nice people at Apple.
And now guess what, we are talking about this not as a rumour, but an approved application in the Apple Store. So get your iPhone connected, or fire up iTunes and take a look yourself…

We thought it might be nice to show you a video of what we’ve built so far for you (still in the works, as of my writing…).

There is a dedicated new area here at Digital-Seas website:
and of course a support space in our Forum section:

We would love to hear your comments, if this is of any use for your daily work or spotting experience.

Mobile Tracking with Your Phone

in Updates, FleetMon Apps by

We are very excited about our new piece of software for mobile Phones called MobTrack.

It could well support us shipspotters by tracking locations and store positions right into our images.

Putting it on your mobile will give you the opportunity to show your live movements on a web-Page. And when I say live, I mean real-live (ok 3 sec delay between sending and showing). We set up a page to demonstrate the functionality and to download the software for JAVA phones.
Free for all, the DS principle.
For the time of Beta-Testing I will also show my tracks to everyone, after that phase, we will introduce buddylists.
See and try it:
