I used this app for diving. Very important feature has been removed from the new interface design, where you could see multiple swell directions, their height and period. Instead, you now get their combined approximation which is far from ideal. On the approximation you could see next to no swell, but at the same time there could be a high-energy wave present that would affect water visibility and would not show on approximation. Please bring this functionality back!

Good app. Could use a widget so you can get an idea of upcoming swell without having to open and poke around in the app. It would also be nice to have a sorting option for your locations. I like having my home breaks and certain focal points/indicators at the top of the list when I'm at home but when I travel up the coast, it would simplify my search if my favorited breaks could be listed north-south (or vice versa) like they are on the webpage.

I have been a premium member for over 10 years. The mobile app has improved tremendously over the years (especially for android.) My issue is with the new beta update. The screen rotation is strangely sensitive and rotates vertical unless the phone is totally horizontal and almost perpendicular to the ground. Also the spots with multiple cams that can be switched back and forth are gone for some reason as well. Overall still the best forecasting app but the new beta version needs more work.
