Provides an accurate forecast which is very helpful for planning my next day of sailing. Very well thought out interface. My complaint: I subscribe to a paid plan so I get "reduced ads" -- but only if I go deep into the settings and un-check "show all adds". But then I have to keep going back there because after a while, this setting will revert on its own. I don't find the Pro or Plus plan features valuable so I'm going back to the free plan - until I can use this without ads.
Still won't work with mobile data This app still insists on having a wifi connection to function- as a previous user mentioned, "There's no wireless out on the lake". For me, there isn't even any wireless on the dock- but, the use of a 3g / 4g connection would allow me to use this app at the dock, all around Narragansett Bay, and into the near coastal Atlantic. 5 stars when fixed; sailflow is what's up for marine weather.
The app crashes on startup every time since weeks, I filed lots of crash reports. After giving a one star review customer support got in touch with me and resolved the issue by modifying my Favorites page which appears to have been the problem. No crashes since. The only paid feature that I'd find useful is access to the reports from the exclusive stations in the central SF Bay. At $9.99 per MONTH this is 10x overpriced IMHO. I use sailflow because the free weather and tide data is a little easier to navigate than on my chart plotter app or other weather apps.
Ehh I love this app because I am a sailor, sail flow is supper useful. I usually use the browser but recently started using the app. Every time I attempt to use the app it force stops and I am unable to use it. I have an HTC and hope this can be fixed.
Not working without wifi Great app works well with wifi but does not load data on cell connection. So it is useless out on water. I'm using a GS3, GS3 and GS5.
Why different in android than iPhone? I have no ability on my android phone to long press an area for a detailed forecast, yet on my iPhone I can. Neither is a paid membership...what's the deal?
