Finally a beautiful and simple way to view tides on your mobile device! In addition to worldwide tidal estimates, you can see the lunar data, weather forecast, and current radar making your next outdoor adventure as easy to plan as possible.
By default, the application will pick the closest station to you, but picking a different station is as easy as viewing a map of your current location. You can also setup and quickly switch between many stored favorite stations if you need to.
No internet access while outdoors? No problem. This app has been designed to give you tidal and lunar predictions without internet access!
It even includes a “Today Extension” so you can get the data you need without opening the app.
Now with Apple Watch support!

Ratings and Reviews
I used to like this app until it got spammy
This was a very simple and useful app for a long time until recently, when I started to receive a lot of annoying and unprofessional advertising on it. I don’t really mind ads in general, as I know they need to make money, but the way they are implementing advertising on this app results in an unacceptable use experience. Two recent examples come to mind: (1) I received a survey invitation in the app to weigh in on building the wall between the US and Mexico. The survey itself was strongly biased toward one particular point of view, and wasn’t really a scientific survey or poll intended to get true public sentiment, so I found it annoying to go through, knowing the results would not be used fairly. And (2) Today, I received an interstitial ad with uninitiated audio, which means that music started to play for an ad as I open the app without any ability to control to stop it for a period of time. This is totally unacceptable advertising on any digital platform, except perhaps if you’re visiting a site or app where you expect uninitiated audio, like a movies review site/app. I am an expert in user experience, advertising online, and design, and I can tell you from years of experience and tons of data that this will make users extremely annoyed. It does not work as an effective form of advertising in the long run. Therefore, I am deleting this app from my phone and seeking alternatives.
Used Daily. Love This App!
I use this app to plan my 8-mile beach walks and to plan when I will swim in the ocean. This app is more useful than my paper tide calendar for daily use. I love that it tells me the exact feet and inches at the moment with a little arrow pointing up or down for rising or falling tide. I love how clear the graph is, showing me how the tide will be rising and falling throughout the day and night, and clearly showing me sunrise and sunset as well. This helps me plan my walks and swims so I do not get clobbered with waves crashing against cliffs or rocks while walking, and can float over rocks while swimming, and to plan for sunlight or starlight. I still use my paper tide calendar to see future tides more than a week or two out, yet if need be, I can scroll over to see future tides on the app as well. When I am not working and have free time, I probably use my tide app about four times or more and that is nearly everyday. I love this app!!!
I have to reconsider my low rating. I checked the app again this morning and now the tide data is accurate. I don't know if this was a one time glitch or what. So for now the app is working fine and is great for showing sun and moon data as well as tied data accurately and attractively. So disregard my initial review below for now.
I can't give this app any credibility at all. It looks good on the surface but the tide data is wrong. It's nearly a full moon and the tides are close to 2.5 feet in Honolulu but the app is showing them at 1.5 feet, and an hour earlier than every other source, including NOAA. In addition, I live right on the water and surf every day and am clued into the tidal heights and times myself. This app gives fake news or, as the Russians used to call it, disinformatsia. So I used it for a day and realized it was really worthless.
