NOAA Buoy and Tide Data
By Verona Solutions, LLC

The first and still the best, NOAA Buoy and Tide Data allows you to retrieve weather data from NOAA's National Data Buoy Center. It also provides tide predictions for the US and Moon phase information.
The perfect tool to help plan your time on the water.

Should have read reviews
2nd re-write: The developer responded the same day as my review, and provided instructions to disable automatic user location (set Auto-Retrieve to off). Having downloaded the app again and making the location changes, I am still nagged with a pop-up error, "No Location. Access to location denied! Check Settings." Another issue is that wave height info is missing from most buoys I've checked along the eastern shore. NOAA comparisons show the data (just not provided from within the app). Excellent marine weather info otherwise.
Excellent marine data service
Quick access to nearby or favorite buoys. Includes ship reports. Tide stations. Lots of goodies. My favorite "real time" marine weather app.
Requires GPS ALWAYS
What a bust. As long as you have gps running the program works. If you have it off to do some planning, it will not work. This is not a navigation program. Once I store my favorites, I should be able to access them. Anytime!
