iPhone App: Rules & Signals

Another iPhone Application that might be of interest to those who want to revise / remind themselves of the navigation shapes, lights and sounds.

The "Rules & Signals" does just that - tells you what they all do in very clear graphics and sounds. There's even a random mode so you can test yourself like those flip cards you get when doing the sailing theory courses. It covers both the buoys system A and B, and there are animated examples of lights on approaches to a harbour (Salcombe).

Not much else to say - it does what it's designed to do in way that is clear and easy to, er, navigate!

And if one early evening you see the lights below coming out of the rain showers you'll know what they are.
