Simply Perfect

Quick, and to the point, with a clear simple layout that tells you the basic tidal information. I’ve used it for a while now and if I didn’t have it I would certainly miss it and I have tried lots of others which are mostly far too complex and time consuming. This app is as close as one can get to a glance at ones wrist watch

I use this app in my work and recreation.
Better than I expected in its features, though it is also a no fuss format.
I would only prefer if some of the locations were more familiar names for this layman.
But it’s still great.

Easy to use

I like the fact I can slide the bar across to see the tide change. Also, it’s great there are a lot not locations to choose from, compared to when I first started using this app.
