How to track ships with an iPhone

Check out this very cool app for iPhone. It’s called gTrax, and it lets you track ships through their AIS-B transmitter (an automatic identification system for ships, similar to what is being used in aviation). Now it covers the important areas in the US, AND Shanghai! Hence, living in Shanghai and working in the ship repair industry, I downloaded this app right away. In the near future the number of regions will be extended.
