App works poorly on iPad, missing key forecast tools


One of my biggest complaints about the app is that it doesn’t work well on an iPad at all. Doesn’t support landscape mode except for cam feeds. You can’t search for spots without adding them to favorites, which is annoying when I’m looking at places I don’t frequent but just want to check, unless you go to the map view. But when I’m looking at spots in California or Florida from New England, I don’t necessary want to scroll on a map. Probably the most salient missing feature is the nearshore model tool, though. Living in New England, where a lot of spots are missing from the site, nearshore is often the only way I can get a sense of what individual spots will be like, and I have to use a browser or computer for that. The interface is useful for quick checks, but for those of us who are often on the go and rarely at a computer, those key tools are sorely missed.

Gave 2 because when it’s needed doesn’t quit pull thru traveling etc...


I will say this I do love the app use it a ton! The only drawback is sometimes when either your traveling or getting a honest real prediction it’s tough! Tides and swell should be understood better or maybe throw them a bone or something? But let’s be real here this is in the realm of predictions of Mother Nature and we have not been kind to her.. or the view might be we can’t control it. But as far as app crashing sometimes, or for no reason spots disappearing on your “surf spot list” on the app then my bank being charged and then getting no service for a day or so while traveling seems pretty “Bunk island” anyway otherwise can’t complain.

Oh my gosh an iPad app! Thank you! Finally!


Thank you so much for the iPad app. I have been waiting so long. I don't check the surf from my phone at the beach. I don't need to because I am standing there. I need to check it at home before I leave and drive 2 hours on PCH for nothing. But the iPhone app makes the video sideways and it was so hard to use. But now it's iPad optimised and I love it so much. Now I can view videos right side up before I leave the house. Thank you much Surfline. Now I won't keep cancelling my membership.
