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.
New Interface Now Working Well Except Red Text On Blue On Widget... Virtually impossible to read.
Latest update has ruined a brilliant app Was a brilliant app. Unfortunately the latest update has completely ruined it Now, unless I'm missing something, the app no longer stores downloaded data. It has to be downloaded each time one wants to use it. Fine if one has a good G4 signal or fast broadband but unfortunately there are many coastal locations where neither is available. Also one now has to remember to adjust for BST each time one does manage to download data. Very disappointed.
The best Tide app for the UK, but recent changes not all good. Welcome improvements in the latest version to port selection and management, now much easier. However I still find the smaller tidal curve graphic and tidal stream atlas of recent versions difficult to read and use on a 7" tablet. That said, for the past 3 years I have used this app routinely at sea, and I feel 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.
The latest version seems to have deleted tides for previous years that I had installed. I prefered the older version as I could see what date/time I went through crucial tidal gates in order for me to plan repeat passages.
Great app - many thanks! Still the best. Thanks for the update.
