Nice Free Tide App

Found this last night. U.S. Tides. Is a free tide app based on NOAA tide stations so has all US tide data. Shows tides in numbers and graph format on same pager as well as sun rise and set, moon rise and set with moon phase. You can save your favorites for easy retrieval.
I'm on an android system, but imagine there is one for iPhone.
This is the best tide app I have found.

Re: Nice free tide app

I don't see the link for the app. How do I find the app? That sounds like it would be very helpful. Fairwinds.

Re: Nice Free Tide App

I have a similar app, it may be the same one. It doesn't seem to need internet access. I think data must be down loaded onto the phone.

I like apps that do just one thing. I have trouble with the sea tow app that gives you everything, weather, wind, tide, forcasts, etc. I have trouble navigating those apps on my small phone screen.

Here is the link to the tide app. It is simple and very quick.

Re: Nice Free Tide App

Neither are worldwide (first one is US, second is US/Japan). For worldwide use, DGS Tides is well worth a look.

I don't plan on leaving US waters anytime soon, but I'll check it out. Thanks.

Actually, I might be sailing in China in 2014.

Re: Nice Free Tide App

I downloaded DGS and it crash everytime I selected overview. My android OS is 2 years old, maybe that is the prob. Even still, I like my app better. It is one touch simple, and small.
