Preview the app features, take a look around. We are constantly updating the app screens, adding new pirate themed events, destinations and of course each day is a NEW account of piracy, pillage and plunder.
A Pirate's Book of Days is easy to navigate. Starting with the Main Screens use the drop down MENU to explore all the features.
You can choose what you see each day by setting your preferences.
These screens tell why we created the app, what is inside the app you will want to see. Once you download the app, like every member of a pirate crew, you have a say in what happens next.
Sign up for notices, alerts, merchandise offers and email... or don't. We'd never force a shipmate once they are part of the crew and have made their mark. There's plenty of interesting features to navigate, and nothing to run afoul of. #pirates #piracy #app
