• Cruising Cape Breton App—The Electronic Cruising Guide that stays up-to-date

There should be no problem installing the App on a 'Tablet PC' running Windows. An iPad user writes, "I had no problem downloading the website on my Mac and then transferring it to my iPad into the app GoodReader. Works like a charm."
Alert symbolChanges listed above the horizontal line in the "What's New?" column on the Home Page are not included in the downloaded version of the App.

The App is a fully-interactive version of the Cruising Cape Breton website that runs on a laptop or tablet. It gives access to all the charts, tide tables, marina and weather forecast information, etc—no Internet required. No need to download what you might need before setting off on your cruise. The latest version takes less than 30 MB on a laptop or tablet computer or can run from a flash drive. During the cruising season (May – October), the latest revision of the app is usually uploaded at the beginning of each month. The Website and App undergo frequent unannounced changes to correct typos, to improve clarity, readability, functionality, and user experience. So, always grab the latest version!  Important note!
