Customer Reviews

  • Awesome

    by Chris Huling

    Whoever gave this one star doesn't know what their talking about. I absolutely love this app! It has everything West Marine in the catalogs. Five stars

  • Great App! Great for the environment!

    by LoneMule

    Have been getting the West Marine catalog in the mail for years and now it's at my fingertips anytime I need it! Only drawback with this app is it tends to make spend more money ... Awesome job guys keep it up!

  • Not bad, but needs improving

    by Popstn

    I was able to download catalogs. After first frozen download failed, I deleted and downloaded again over wifi with no issues. Viewing the catalog is pretty painful. Pages turn very slow and panning around is slow as well. So slow I almost loose interest or what I was looking for. Good start but needs some improving!

  • Excellent. All at my fingertips on my boat

    by Sailogger

    Really helpful for finding what you need when you need it. Well done West Marine!

  • Just what I needed!

    by FascistMusic

    Makes it convenient to browse at home on my iPad and on the go with my iPhone.

  • West Marine app

    by THE 3js

  • Proud

    by Edward Angulo

    I work for the manufacturing corp. that produces All of West Marines Products in Long Beach Ca and to see this type of progress makes me feel like a part of progress. We fill there orders down to the detail and try to leave nothing unchecked. They are a huge client Congrats on the success and future more to come.

  • Awesome!

    by P Andy C

    Great start!

  • Don't Bother

    by leena_bo_beena

    This app is not being updated with new sale flyers. It looks like it has been abandoned. If they don't care about this app any longer then why should you?

  • Horrible

    by TimS0208

    One of the most ill- conceived ideas for an online/brick- n-mortar store - search by the first word through PDF catalogs. What were they thinking? Perhaps the most useless app I've ever downloaded.

  • Catalogue download

    by West marine app

    Unable to download main catalogue to new iPad. Have tried reinstalling app numerous times to no avail. Any solutions out there?

  • Catalog will not download

    by SV Imajica

    The title says it all....3 day with WiFi and good cell and it is still at 1 percent

  • Weak...

    by Kent IMac27

    Search doesn't work, this is simply a copy of the catalog... With poor graphics and no user functionality.

  • Search needs work

    by paulmbrandt

    It's great to have the catalog on my phone, means one less thing to store aboard the boat. Because the display of the phone is tiny compared to the size of a catalog page, browsing to find things is just painful. This means that search features are critical. Try searching for a replacement marpol sign.... No results for marpol, and hundreds for sign, including everything from trolling motors to batteries. Not very helpful. Please fix the search tool, or give us a link on your site with google search.

  • Buggy still

    by Transmitterdan

    App never worked right on my iPad version 1. It crashed all the time. Now the latest "minor bug fixes" have eliminated the crashes. But it freezes and can't navigate. There are still bugs. If the developers tested this app on an iPad 1 for 5 minutes they would see problems.

  • Total waste of time

    by Bad bad west marine

    Wanted to have this on the ipad just in case we needed it offshore or at anchor. Will not down load catalog! Expected better

  • Rubbish

    by Higgenson

    Doesn't download catalogs.

  • No good on original iPad

    by Stuart Malone

    Maybe this works on a more recent iPad, but on my original it's a mess. The catalog downloaded OK, but crashed rotating from landscape to portrait while viewing the cover screen. The search results don't even act like a native app: when you scroll the frame around the popover scrolls too, and then gets redrawn in the right location. Feels like it was developed in some cross-platform toolkit.

  • Does not work

    by Hambone5000

    The app hangs on the opening splash screen. Using a 4s with iOS 6. Apps should not be published until they have been tested.

  • Needs ios6 update!

    by Shark Diver

    This app gave up the ghost with the iOS6. Literally as it is all white. Come on WM lets get it in gear and get it updated!

  • Won't work

    by K sailor

    Quit working I guess it is due to io6

  • Does not open

    by Serge Dauvillier

    The app worked ones and now it is white.

  • Does not open on io6

    by eranfrai

    Does not open

  • Broken.

    by Sam Heller

    Wish I could give 5 stars, because I would. But, I just get a frozen start up screen.

  • It was great while it worked

    by captobie

    I had the app running and managed to download the catalog. Everything seemed to be working great. But all of a sudden it stopped, and I can't get past the white screen with the West Marine logo, just like all the other reviewers. West Marine, please fix this. When it works it's five star worthy.

  • Doesn't work

    by Zane v2

    Would be handy, this version doesn't work

  • What happened?

    by HotSnapZcom

    This app used to work for me. Now I'm also getting frozen startup screen. This app is not currently working. Sorry to have to delete this one. It was nice while it worked.

  • Broken

    by Bob-OOO

    App doesn't even open up. Just stays on blank white screen with WestMarine logo. Bummer.....

  • Waste of time to download

    by Manny in MI

    Did not open. Please fix! Love the store. Would like to endorse the app.

  • Doesn't work

    by Holtzlei

    Doesn't work no catalog shows up

  • Doesn't Work

    by Not Far From Here!

    Not sure why, but it doesn't work. I can't search or open the catalog.

  • Just ok

    by Dan4043

    I was really excited about this but it just runs so slow. Even with the downloaded versions of the catalog the refresh time was garbage. I also don't like that you must be zoomed out to move pages. Good news is you still have all of west marine in you pocket anywhere you go.
