What's New in Version 2.0.5
Compatibility Updates for iOS 9
My expectation is that an app for a paid account ought to allow you to keep track of your account, and therefore I give this App a "1". I opened the App for the express purpose of checking on the status of my account. The first thing the App asked for was my Seatow account number. I'm sure the people at Seatow are proud of their company, but expecting that their customers revere their affiliation enough to commit their member number to memory is, frankly, delusional. Hours later, after I'd found my number elsewhere, I entered it so I could look up when my membership is up for renewal. The next question that I was asked in order to sign into the App was my account expiration date. This App is a complete miss. The main point of the App ought to be to help customers look up details of their account. Instead, in order to use the App you have to know the details of your account. Since I can't get into the App, I don't know if it performs any useful function, but then, there's really only a few things it needs to do: let members look up information about their account, renew their account, and call for help. Having to cover the first of these before you can get in to do the other two is a debilitating flaw.
Great info but poor app design
This app could be great with a few fixes.
There is a major bug: for example, the iPad vertical view shows all the required info for sunday 02-28 ....but when the iPad is rotated horizontally i now saw a view for saturday and sunday 03-05 and 03-06 which is the data for a week later. This is very misleading at first glance because on expects it to be the same data when the iPad is rotated.
There is an "assistance " yellow button (part of a navigation bar) that floats in the middle of the screen overlaying the data as you scroll un and down. This is really annoying. That bar should permanently be at the bottom of the screen.
The visual data layout looks good... but the rows of numbers ( hourly winds and temps and tide) could be so much more meaningful if plotted on a graph so we could easily SEE how the weather conditions will evolve during the day, or over the week.
It worked for me
I see comments about poor design, well I don't see that. I spent 4 hours driving my new boat up the coast, only to get to my new "home waters" and happen upon and unmarked sand bar. I haven't even received my membership card in the mail yet. I opened the app, hit the call button, and was promptly connected. The app used my location from my phone and kept my up to date on my call. In no time I was towed off the bar and back on my way.
Sea Tow is piece of mind, and I've only used it this once, but the app made a bad situation manageable. What more could you ask for?
