Predictions are based on the harmonic method, using constants from the Hydro offices (UKHO, SHOM, NOAA, BOM, CHS etc). There are differences between the app predictions and the official Hydro office tide tables, as these are based on large numbers of constants that are not made publicly available. The Hydro offices consider the harmonic methods used in this product appropriate for navigation.

Always consult tidal curves and take into account local weather (pressure and wind) and swell conditions, which can have a very significant effect on sea water levels.

The best tide planner

Flying Tent

I have used a lot of tide planning apps and find this one to be the best. It has powerful functionality that makes planning sailing trips easier.

Thank you for the nice review! Best wishes from all at Imray

Wrong tide times


Used it for a while now until I realised that the tide times for this area are different, up to an hour discrepancy from the local tides times but other than that it a great app

Developer Response

Hello, thanks for the feedback. Where do you use the app? It'd be helpful to know where there are discrepancies - are they different from the official Hydrographic Office tide times or are the actual tide times? It's helpful for us to know so that we can check and improve the app. Regards, Imray

Brilliant for water sports but subscription problems


I've been an annual subscriber for several years and find this an excellent package, giving good detail and allowing you to calculate tidal heights for landmarks with ease, although having only seven day data makes planning ahead a bit difficult. A good app nonetheless. However, I'm annoyed at present because, having purchased a two year subscription, it is no longer recognising my payment and therefore I've no access to the seven day data, only one day at a time. This ceased in November 2016, though I paid for 2016 and 2017. I see there is small print saying that if you change tablets or phones you may have to repurchase. None of my other apps have required this, it's linked to my payments not my tablet. I'm peeved at this and though it's not expensive I resent being required to pay again.

Developer Response

Hello, thanks for your review and for continuing to subscribe. It sounds as though this is something we might be able to help you to fix. You should be able to access the subscriptions across all of your devices as long as you are using the same Apple ID on both. Please go to Tools: App Extensions and tap Restore extensions. If the problem continues, please email us at and we will work with you to fix it.
You can also see up to a year ahead if you purchase a Hydrographic Licence in addition to your annual licence. Regards, Lucy (Imray Support)
