In a recent cull, the Google Listen app has now cast its very last pod.

I’m not alone in my love of ships, islands and the deep blue. In fact there are literally hundreds of apps in the Play Store geared towards people like me: games, guides, simulators and utilities to appease my need for nautical nourishment.
