**Does Not Work Properly With IOS 7.xx**
** I am working on a fix**
1.6 is finally here all known bugs have been fixed and the anchor offset feature has been added which allows you to set an anchor point after you anchor. Now runs properly on ios version 5.

Anchor Alert was designed to warn you when your anchor drags or breaks loose. It will help protect you from running aground or drifting into other boats while at anchor.

* Just an FYI for those of you that don't know how to close programs that run in the background. Double click your home button(the round button at the bottom of the screen) then you will see all the programs running in the background. Hold your finger on one of the apps until they start wiggling and have an x on them then delete it. That is how you stop apps running in the background it does not delete them like on the main screen. Also this app is not recommended for iPhone 2's.

** Price Reduced from $3.99 to $2.99 one week only get it now before it goes back up!! **
