Easy to use, set favorites. Useful every day
I walk my dogs next to the SF Bay, and this app will tell me the temperature and velocity of the wind off the water. My regular weather app (Weather On) is right on the money for ambient temp and wind speed, but the buoy data tells me the wind temp and speed off the water, and whether or not I'll need a jacket. Maybe a "one trick pony", but it's really good at it, and I use it every day for that. The tide data is there also, but is easier to read in Tide Graph Pro. I'd buy both, if you're by the water. Tip: Pick a few “favorite” buoys near you, and those are the only ones that will come up when you tap favorites (so you don’t have to sort through all the weather on the coast, but you can if you wish). The app responds quickly, so the delay from home; screen to favorite buoy air temp and wind speed takes about 3 or 4 seconds max. Simple, and well written. Good Job.
Good simple solid app
I use this all the time. It's accurate and easy to use. Actually reports buoy data so there is no prediction, it's fact. I have sat next to bout 10 miles offshore and temp and swell dead on. I wish it did some swell map predictions and some SST predictions but I doesn't that I can find. Oh well, like I said it's a ample app that works great.
Great app but definitely needs an update
I use this app almost daily and have for years. When it's working it's great. I'm using a 6s and it doesn't seem to be updated to function like it should. It's laggy. I frequently have to close it out and re-open. Hoping it's fixed soon or I'll be shopping around. Please update!!
