The ITF Seafarers’ Trust has rolled out the upgraded version of its offline app designed to help seafarers looking for reliable transport when in port.

The upgraded Shore Leave app will have additional features such as the provision to leave reviews and rate the centres and to leave comments that will inform other seafarers of the quality of facilities and services.

Additionally, it includes all the contact details for ISWAN Seafarers Help, the 24/7 helpline for seafarers.

“The response from seafarers was very positive and the app was downloaded over 10,000 times.”

Seafarers Trust project manager Luca Tommasi said: “The idea of the original app was to transform the ISWAN seafarers’ centres directory into an interactive app that could be used offline.

“The response from seafarers was very positive and the app was downloaded over 10,000 times.

“That was a good result but we would like to reach 50,000 downloads; the aim is to have at least one seafarer on every vessel using Shore Leave, and getting the most out of their free time.”

The new Shore Leave app is expected to offer seafarers with access to local welfare providers such as a bus ride to the city, the shopping centre or a seafarers’ centre.

International Chamber of Shipping secretary general Peter Hinchliffe said: “ICS always welcomes new tools to help seafarers have a proper and refreshing break.

“This new Shore Leave app will allow them to make the most of their limited free time.”
