Predictions are based on the harmonic method, using constants from the Hydro offices (UKHO, SHOM, NOAA, BOM, CHS etc). There are differences between the app predictions and the official Hydro office tide tables, as these are based on large numbers of constants that are not made publicly available. The Hydro offices consider the harmonic methods used in this product appropriate for navigation.

Always consult tidal curves and take into account local weather (pressure and wind) and swell conditions, which can have a very significant effect on sea water levels.

Excellent data, quirky clumsy UI

This provides all the data you would expect from an app of this sort. Data is very reasonably priced, per year and per geographical region. I use this app a lot. Yet I find myself cursing its odd user interface. When one gesture should be enough, I’ll find myself making several presses and cursing a wrong turn. I always get what I need in the end, but often with frustration.

A short exercise in UI and UX design would see this app elevated to magical status. Come on Imray, have a go!

Excellent tide App, I’ve used it for several years

I just spotted to negative reviews here after recommending this app to a friend. I use this app for navigating my 2.3m draft fin keel yacht around the East Coast, it’s a critical part of my navigation procedure and wouldn’t be without out. I also use it daily for paddle boarding in the Thames Estuary and river Crouch/Roach area, again, I wouldn’t be without it in this shallow and highly tidal area. I also use it when away elsewhere in the UK surfing, paddleboarding and sailing. Two years ago sailing from the Pool to the Crouch it was the perfect tide app for my navigation. This is an excellent app and if you need a detailed and comprehensive tidal app then this is the one I recommend. It is easy to use, comprehensive, reliable and I will continue to subscribe to it for as many years as I sail, paddle and surf in the UK’s tidal waters.

I’ve used this for over a year now. It tries to be too clever by half. Most people want simple tide information, they don’t want sliders to change CD or draught especially when your instruction manual is so rubbish. It is far too easy to get the wrong info. To confound things, what you see on the screen doesn't match what you are told you should see on the screen, eg depth in the app is really charted depth. This is basic stuff and needs to be right. I stopped using the tide feature because running my boat aground because of a misplaced slider in the app is not something I’m prepared to do. I do like the tidal stream feature very much. It is great for passage making decisions and is my go to solution for this. It is why I still have the app. I have written to you and you have acknowledge the issues, yet nothing has been done. This app could be one of the best, instead it has been allowed to fail. Imray are a serious player and need to sort this.
