Predictions are based on the harmonic method, using constants from the Hydro offices (UKHO, SHOM, NOAA, BOM, CHS etc). There are differences between the app predictions and the official Hydro office tide tables, as these are based on large numbers of constants that are not made publicly available. The Hydro offices consider the harmonic methods used in this product appropriate for navigation.

Always consult tidal curves and take into account local weather (pressure and wind) and swell conditions, which can have a very significant effect on sea water levels.

Just doesn't seem to work. No help or guidance setting up the app ( which used to work well). 11/05/20 update Tried it again and it is working. Good tide chart for today, but doesn't seem to show 7 days like other free apps. Extensions are available but it isn't clear what you get for each different option; several seem similar. A link to a webpage with more information is all it would take, generating less overhead when updating the app.

Advised to obtain a refund for the £16 wasted on this app by the developer BUT, Google Play won't pay out as it does not meet their policy? Well that's a beautiful demonstration of a waste of money, be very careful with this IMRAY app you won't get a refund if it fails to work when it's needed😠💩

Hi Steven, we advised you to in the first instance approach Google Play for a refund. If you have had trouble then please get back to us and we can sort this out for you. As a note, you first contacted support over the Bank Holiday weekend when no one was in the office and we have picked this up as soon as we were back at our desks.
