New shore leave app

17 November 2017

The ITF Seafarers’ Trust, the ITF’s charity arm, has updated its shore leave app to encourage seafarers to visit their local seafarer centres – with a chance to take part in an electronic raffle.

Using the app, every time a seafarer visits a seafarers’ centre they can scan a code to get an electronic raffle ticket. The first winner in the quarterly draw will receive an iPad.

Users can customise the app by pinning places of interest on to a map, and swap recommendations about a port or city with other seafarers.

Launched in 2014, Shore Leave was the very first app developed for seafarers. Once downloaded, it can function offline, and stores all the contacts in users’ phones. 

The Shore Leave app can be downloaded on Google Play for Android and the App Store for iOS devices.
