I recently discovered that Tack Pad uses tacking algorithms patented by Sail Timer Inc. After discussing things over with SailTimer, I’m pleased to announce that Rudder Nut LLC and Sail Timer Inc. have come to an agreement. Rudder Nut is now an official licensee. Sail Timer has a similar product to Tack Pad, at least in that it solves tacking problems, but their real-time focus, interface and functionality are quite different. Sail Timer also makes wind vane hardware that can be accessed from their app. If you’re interested you can find more at their website: www.sailtimerapp.com
I’ll be updating the app, documentation and web site to include licensing information and will hopefully have time to include a few new features into Tack Pad as well.
