What's New in Version 2.0
Brand new design and added features!
3.5 Stars, but getting better
Ok, so I'm giving 4 stars as this is an improvement over the last version. I just completed the update and I immediately like the layout out a lot better. The app seems a little more intuitive, and MinuteCast is a nice addition. However when I pull up a nearshore forecast by zone, I still get the Erie East 1/3, Erie Central 1/3, etc. followed by what I assume to be chart numbers? Yet, I do not see this same text on the NOAA website. In a nut shell, I'm not entirely sure what zone this forecast is for. Besides this small glitch, decent app but some more room for improvement.
Bolder Fonts Please
your font size and boldness was a key feature in your last version for sailors over 40 years old that don’t have the contrast sensitivity like 20 year olds. please go back to that font and boldness, it was easier to read with less light to preserve night vision.
This has never been a good app. At least not on an apple product. It's very slow to load, and also very touchy. Now the problem is once you tap on an area for a forecast, the "minute cast" option is the only one available, and most areas don't support whatever minute cast is.
