ShipMate App and Integration

I have used both, tend to use the app on phone more though.  


I upload photos in the app, they appear here, but 'chats' on the app don't appear anywhere here and vice versa.  You can't search on the app, so the same threads appear over and over again.  My app chat posts count yet app reviews don't.


Also, there are many ship and port reviews that appear on the app but appear to source from some other website like maybe an agency site or other.  Users on the app ask questions of the OP but I suspect OP never sees them or is not aware of the app user posts.


Are there plans to better integrate the app and this website or other sources that feed into the app?

I just downloaded the Ship Mate app a few days ago. Not much experience using it yet although I was very happy a couple nights ago. I work the midnight shift and when things get a little boring - log in - read - and think cruising!  Happy thoughts.


Oh, the phone is ringing because somebody has a problem somewhere - I'll answer it as soon as I finish reading this post-cruise review (lol).

I have noticed the same thing and was wondering the same thing.  I am hoping that it is in the works to sync the two (app and website).  I too seem to use the app more, but would like the same info to appear on the website when I log into the website.


Thanks for bring this up, hopefully we will hear something soon.

Sadly, I'm one of those people without a smart phone and therefore no way to have an app. I do make comments on the roll call, but no one answers back.  It would be nice to be able to "chat" with fellow passengers from this site.  


Thanks for bringing the question to the "powers that be."

I actually deleted the Shipmate app but I really like this site to access the forum, read reviews, check out cruises etc.



a smart phone ringing during a joust would just be rude anyway.

I'd have it on vibrate... that might make my surprised reaction to the "no so good" knights more believable. Wink

I agree, when the two sites merged, I am missing most of my previous cruises on my signature.  I’m still trying to figure out how to update “my cruises”.

I have a lot of trouble to cant load lots of my cruise on both sites have email both still waiting

Just another feature on the list of many things to improve upon. I love this site and I also use the app to peruse comments and photos posted. Would be nice if and when the two can be assimilated together which I am sure they are looking at, just a matter of time.

I did notice that when I have uploaded reviews on the site, along with pics on my recent cruise, the pics never uploaded, even though they showed they were. (just too lazy to go back and try and re-upload them)

I did notice that even when I have uploaded pics via the app, they aren't located here on the site, so makes it difficult to follow....Nervous
