Android Phone App for Tides

Anyone know of a good tide chart app for android phones that would cover the east coast ICW waterway?

Get the Navionics App. cheap download charts for free and get all the tides and charts at your finger tips. To think of what I have spent over the years for the same software to run on a Chartplotter

Re: Android phone app for tides

I use "Tide Chart Free" on my Android phone. It allows you to set 3 favorite ports and scroll through them with the flick of a finger. Or get tides based on your GPS location. Graphic and text-based tide info makes it very easy to see when high and low will be.

If you're moving up the ICW you could just update your 3 ports periodically, or you could use the GPS location setting.
