The best Tide App, by a nautical mile! Really impressive App & the Widget is most useful, instantly giving all the relevant information for my local tidal area. Tidal Diagrams are basic, but give much needed information. Looking forward to the French & Irish ports being included. Getting better & better with every update.
Excellent App. because it works offline as data is stored on device. I sail a lot in NW Scotland and West Coast of Ireland, forget the internet as 3G/4G coverage is bad as it is when offshore. Great for secondary ports as it has a big list. No more working out the tides for secondary ports using Reeds. I have checked it by Reeds several times over the last 2 years and always found it accurate. Also tidal steams are very useful. Just purchased 2017, third year of use. I just wish they would do one for France and North Spain.
I've just paid to update port data to 2017 but I continue to only have 2016 data and a message to change my port data. I have installed the 2017 data, but app is still showing 2016 when I open App. Restarted my phone. Still 2016 data. Uninstalled and reinstalled App....still only 2016....help please. ... Only 2 stars at this point...5 when it's back to working as it should with up to date data.
Not so good any more The new user interface is even more clunky than the old one and the map screen doesn't work properly now. The drop down for the location doesn't look like a drop down so you don't realise it is, and tapping "now" changes the displayed time but the map doesn't update.
The best Tide app for the UK, but recent changes not all good. I'm unconvinced by the changes to this excellent app, though latest revisions to changes in port selection and management have helped. I find the now smaller tidal curve graphic and tidal stream atlas difficult to read and use on a 7" tablet. That said, the main functionality is unchanged, and after 3 years use, I believe it's the best tide app for UK waters. It gives accurate information even for secondary ports, and does away with the need to perform tedious tidal height calculations - a great safety feature. The tidal stream atlases are stamped with the times for the selected day, so you can see at a glance what the stream will be hour by hour. It would be useful if the Inshore Forecast was saved so it could be viewed offline.
Good offline UK data Like the ability to buy annual data. The app is developing with marine (Met Office) weather, tidal flow and daily graphs. 4x1 widget good as well. Downsides are a sometimes less than intuitive UI and random, inaccurate moon phase data on the summary list. The moon is a problem as that would illustrate tidal range a glance.
4: Complete user interface overhaul including new ways of changing ports and better support for tablets.
4.2: Make port selection easier to use plus various bug fixes
4.3: Automatically switch to a new year after downloading data. Add menu item that links to the website
