The app needs to streamline. Job 1 would be to be able to code it so you see all wave heights at the locations you have chosen for your favs. Right now you have select each one to be able to see wave sizes. It would be much more user friendly to first see heights and the chosen locations and then if you want more swell data you can then choose to do so.

July 2022: I paid for pro, it worked for a while. Now the app says upgrade to pro even though it auto charged me a few days ago. I contacted support. They're not available to help until Monday. Edit June 2022: The problem resolved itself. Now it's happening again. I just uninstalled and reinstalled it, and it works now. Waste of my time doing that which is very inconvenient. Other than that I like the app.

The surf reports and not always very accurate. The most useful feature of this app were the webcams. Magicseaweed have now removed the free webcams and made it so you have to pay. The quality of the webcams at my local breaks is not worthy of the price they want. Very disappointed in MSW with this "update".
