Pretty functional, but could be better
Seems pretty accurate if you have the right location set and the graphics are good for scrolling and watching the pattern or seeing what's happening.
But... I wish it would show me data about the current condition / where the red line is. And it lets me touch and hold to put a red line up, but again no info.
The calendar is nice for the moon, but why not have an option to show high/low tide levels?
And setting location is a bit tedious. Do I have the closest one? Maybe it could offer a list sorted by distance?
Low Tide at Wrong Time
This is a free app, so you can't really complain too much. The graphics are clear, and easier to read than some other similar apps. However, I live in San Diego (a maritime town,) and the app has been giving me incorrect times for the tides. For example, today it listed 5:45 a.m. as the low tide, when the actual low was at 6:50 a.m. (confirmed on the NOAH website.) Timing is important when you walk on the beach. I hope this can be fixed with an update.
I've been using this app for over a year now for sailing in the bay area and find it works reliably. I sail in Richardson Bay where it's incredibly shallow and having reasonably accurate tide prediction is crucial for planning a day sailing. Great app!
