Please recommend Boat Launch App for Android???

Just made the switch from Apple iphone to Samsung galaxy s3 android phone.A lot of the good apps that were on my iphone seem to be available on android, however I can't find one that tells you boat launch sites.
There was an excellent app for the iphone called boat launch.The only thing I can find for android is in the USA which is obviously no good.Can anyone recommend anything (apart from switching back to iphone).
also any good Apps for tides?

Had a quick look on play store and I could only find boat ramps which is a U S app. Nothing for the U K.

Is boat launch any good as 4.99 is a lot of money for an app. Does it cover more than the boat launch website? It's ok especially since its free but misses loads of slips especially in Scotland so would not want to pay for the convenience of having it on my iPhone.

Hi, yes I can visit boatlaunch.co.uk on phones browser and guess I will have to do that.I personally found the boat launch app for the iphone quite useful.It would work off your current location and give launch sites in the area with all the info you get on the website.I found it very useful and user friendly.I cant comment about scotland as I only ever launch my boat sussex,dorset,devon , cornwall & wales areas.

Boatlaunch is only as good as the data it's fed. Think of it as a slipway version of Open Streetmap - A map for the people by the people.

The down side of course being in this corner of the world there are usually less people.....
