I'm curious which anchor alarm apps sailors are using. I like simplicity and reliability and would welcome a few recommendations.
Thanks!

Hi Jim ... I use Drag Queen. I like the "Late Set Position" for when you forget to set position when you first drop the hook (i.e. before you payout appropriate scope)

Thanks! - Mark (S/V ORION)

"Anchor Alarm" has worked well for me. Has Late Set feature as well.

Mark and Wes:

Thanks for the recommendations! We'll be in the BVI for 3 full weeks starting this Friday and I'll try out both.

We have ended up using two, Anchor Time and Anchor Alarm. My wife uses one and I use the other so that we always have two different alarms operating on our respective phones. We also set our B&G anchor alarm, so in reality we are using three, but the B&G might be difficult to hear in our cabin.
