This has small file size so it doesn't matter when you install it don't use it once in a while, but when you do you'll be happy how convenient it is a you'll think how lucky you are you got this app when needed.
Useful, creative, counter-intuitive
Extremely difficult UI. Couldn't even get tide predictions for three days ahead. When I tried to email support, the entire app froze. A few interesting features here, but the app is too gimmicky for regular use.
Can't get refunds in App Store.
For The Fish Lovers
Love fish? How about useful apps? Then get Tides Deluxe as it combines these 2 hobbies and puts them into 1 whole package. It also looks nice and clean and is very useful like stated before.
