About this app

Please see http://tide-now.lfreytag.com for usage tips.

Tide Now WA is a tide and tidal current calculator for Washington State. It displays a tide graph, daily tide table, present tide status, and daylight/sun/moon timing. It supports 114 tide locations and 13 tidal current locations.

Off Line Operation- app does not use the internet, it works by calculation.

Predictions are quick the app is simple to use. Use swipe gestures for the next and prior day tides. There are no ads and app cannot access phone features.

User Options

Controls for the user are provided by three action bar icons and five items in the settings menu. The action bar controls are Set Location, Set Date, and Refresh. The settings controls are Add Station to Favorites, GMap Station (internet), Change Color Scheme, Sun and Moon Info, Mark Height, About Gestures, and Overlay Waveform.

Accurate Predictions

This app was written using well-known tidal prediction algorithms and publicly available location data. It can be expected to match very closely to federally-published tide tables.

Designed for On The Spot Use

The tidal status presentation gives an immediate snapshot of the tide situation, more useful than just a standard list of highs and lows. The display can be refreshed at any time to update this status. This app is designed for use while actively out and about along the waterfront.

200 Year Calendar

In addition to today's tides, a date picker is available to choose any date from 1901 to 2100.

Next Day, Prior Day Swipes


The selected station can be added to a set of 8 favorites. These can be accessed by a down-swipe.

Height Marking - You can mark any given tide height on the graph. The height line is drawn, along with the times the tide crosses this line. Examples boat launching, clam digging, walking around obstacles such as bulkheads.

The best tide app bar none! I downloaded this because every other tide app was inaccurate. Some by as much as a few feet which can equal 100 yards of beach! I relied on another app to park my car on the beach, but it was so far off that the surf actually touched my front tires. Tide now showed the tide at 6ft when it was really over 10ft. I think I'll stick with this app from now on. it actually has much more info than the others. kudos developers!

thanks Billy. I do sweat the details, glad it is working for you! Sometime try tide now USA West, it is the long term successor to tide now WA and will be updated for android changes as they come along. Take care. Larry tide.now@gmail.com

Might be my all-time favorite app. Easy to use, full of information (has become my default for checking sunrise/sunset times as well as tides) and good design. It even has fun little (apparently hand-drawn) doodles for the sun, moon, and logo! Love it.
