In-App Purchases

HomePort offers a subscription model where users can access exclusive content and advanced features. Subscribers benefit from:

  • Access to premium articles and educational materials
  • Enhanced tools and functionalities for professional development
  • Priority customer support


Offline mode

Sailors spend weeks without an internet connection, so all the app features must be available offline. After becoming online, all data syncs with the DataBase.

Essential tools

HomePort offers a suite of essential tools for sailors, including:Converter:

  • Converts various maritime units for accuracy in daily tasks.
  • Drafts Calculation: Calculates vessel drafts to maintain stability and safety.
  • Sounding: Measures water depth beneath a vessel for safe navigation.
  • Interpolation: Estimates values between two known points for precise calculations.
  • Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA): Calculates expected arrival times for better planning.
  • Squat Calculation: Determines squat to avoid groundings in shallow waters.


The core and value of the app is practiced information from the Chief Officer.

Information is divided into two segments: Engineer and Navigator. Behind this is dividing into the professional skills of each department.  

Courses feature interactive elements such as quizzes, simulations, and practical exercises to engage users and reinforce learning.


Interview simulation

Users can participate in job interview simulations, listening to audio questions from real interviews and providing their answers. This feature helps mariners prepare for job interviews by familiarizing them with typical questions and improving their response skills.

Days to End the contract

Users can input and track details of their work contracts, including start and end dates. The app helps users monitor the duration of their contracts and receive reminders as they approach their end. The ship moves on the line to the airplane.
