• 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."
NOTE: Changes listed above the horizontal line in the "What's New?" column on the Home Page (Introduction) 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 PC, without need for an Internet connection. For those cruising on a boat, the app allows access to all the charts, tide tables, marina and weather forecast information, etc—no Internet required. No need to download what might be needed before setting off on your cruise. The latest version takes about 22 MB on a laptop or tablet computer and can run from a flash drive. During the navigation season, a revised version of the app is usually uploaded at the beginning of each month. In addition to announced changes, the Website & App undergo numerous unannounced changes to correct typos, improve readability and functionality, and improve the 'look and feel'. So grab the latest available version! Important note!
