Ebb Tide is a quick and easy tide app with watch app, complications, glance, and today extension widget.
Designed to give you quick access to the tide data you care about on your wrist and today screen with as quickly as possible.
The complications and glance tell you the most important data about the upcoming tide with a quick glance at your wrist.
In the watch app you can go deeper and discover upcoming extreme highs and lows as well as looking up the tide for any day of the year.
The watch app also maintains a copy of the data so you can check the tide even when your phone is not around.
The today extension widget tells you about the upcoming tides without needing to unlock your phone. Just pull down the Today shade to see what's happening.
The Graph view is a clean an fast way to swipe through the tides by day.
The Calendar makes it super fast to view the tide for any day of the year.
The Calendar also indicates extreme tides with a small indicator icon. The more extreme the tide, the brighter the indicator.
Pick for over 3000 tide stations in the US and it's territories from a map view or quickly find your station with the auto-completing search bar.

Simple & gets to the point!
Couldn't be happier! Tried a few apps and what i especially like about this is how easy it is to find/change locations in your area which might not be "nearby". Just tap around the map. Other apps had u choose first from a list, when u might not know the name of the tide station, then there was no way to favorite them, so all u had was a "recents" and it actually was pretty annoying. Because trying to find the right location - bum searches would clear out ones u wanted to keep.
SO!!!!! My point is this is SO SIMPLE. The map stays around your area (i didn't do the gps location access) and u can easily tap a new location by sight, tap the tides, BAM. Also, much love for the joint calendar/tides screen so u can see high/low as u tap days on the calendar. Makes it much easier for say planning a trip or planning the right day/time to go snorkeling or whatnot.
Thank u, developer, for making an app that is so simple to use and gets all the fluff out of the way! It is streamlined and just enough to be everything that is needed! Very happy here!!! :D
The visual is a wavy line with two peaks representing high tides and two valleys representing low tides and the corresponding time of day under each. The calendar is below that. After you set a location, all you do is tap the day (&/or month) you want to see. (A vertical red line intersects the current tide on the wavy line). The display could not be simpler. It is MUCH EASIER TO USE than the totally text charts I formerly relied on. I use it for beach walks where I want to avoid getting trapped on my way back by the highest tides up against tick infested plants and a chain link fence. (I do not use it to navigate the ocean.) I frequently recommend it to folks heading out for an evening beach walk as a higher tide is coming in. Usually they are clueless about the status of the tides, even men pushing strollers into the situation!
Simple and practical
I haven't taken the time to write an app review in the years I've been using an iPhone. Today I feel compelled after finding Ebb Tide. I live off a river and when large storms enter the area and the tide is high my house can be subject to some nasty flooding. I used some inferior apps to get by in the past but frustration lead me to Ebb Tide. Now I'm able to grab a quick snapshot of current tide conditions and days that are subject to more extreme tides. It's basically everything I needed.
One feature request would be the ability to set alerts for high, low, or specific thresholds on tides. Regardless, love the app!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
