Need a forecast

There’s no forecast for the hook when we fish at Whitianga. I use alderman islands and it’s not the same really, I’ve been caught out a couple of times. Is this able to be done thanks Scott

Good. Needs more improvements

Great app, and the website is even better.

What I would love to see is a map overlay with names of the various places / points of interest. For new starters it can be a mystery what area the forecast applies to. At the very least the map tab should have a “locate me” button or a way of seeing where I am.

It's OK - needs a Pro Version to remove ads

The first comment I want to make is that I absolutely LOVE the Swell Map website. These guys do the very best weather forecasting for boaties and I have been waiting for an app for ages.

I was so excited when I stumbled across it in the App Store. Doesn't have all the functionality of the website but it has enough. Tide times would be a great addition.

Also I HATE the ads at the bottom - it cheapens the whole app. I didn't pay over a thousand dollars for my nice new iPhone to have the screen real estate wrecked with ads. Please give us the choice of a pro version to remove the ads - I will gladly pay an appropriate price to remove these from my life!

Overall a great start guys. Cheers and tight lines!

Developer Response ,

Hi thanks very much for the feedback. Good news is there is an advert free version coming very soon.

The tide times are available on the bottom graph or can be viewed by toggling graph view to table view using bottom right button of graph. Each day has its respective tides. Hope this helps.

Many thanks.
