Apps4Sailing.com has released Parts of a Sailboat, Learn to Tie Knots and one free app, How to Turn a Sailboat for Android users on Google Play.
The free app features 'Coming About: Turning a sailboat into and through the wind'
Included with each app lesson is a Sailing Terms Glossary for each topic and graphic illustrations for reference. The illustrations can be shared with a friend or emailed to one's desktop and printed out for reference. For all paid apps, a credit of the purchase price will be applied towards purchase of the upcoming Learn to Sail Vol I or Vol II Apps.
Taught by a US Coast Guard Licensed Captain and Instructor of American Sailing Association Classes, the lessons are arranged in the order of a typical sailing course. The apps were created using parent company Little Pines Multimedia's popular 'Learn to Sail with Multimedia VOL I and II' CDROM, LearntoSail.Net.
The lessons are also run on Apple iPad, iPhone format as individual movie files. These are available at http://apps4sailing.com. They also can be downloaded and played on PC or Mac.
