Ratings and Reviews
Breath of fresh air for forecast apps
Loving this so far. I can open the app and immediately see what’s going on at a glance for wind, swell, tides, etc which is AWESOME. UI design is a breath of fresh air compared to everything else out there. Using free version for now but will prob subscribe soon so I can use widgets and multiple spots
Keep it up!
Love the UI and beautiful design of this app. It’s easy to see at a glance what’s going on. That would be great if the surf forecast info here were accurate or at least close. For example today Epic says that Huntington Beach is over 10 Ft. When it’s actually closer to 4 Ft. The report within app does not accurately reflect what surf height at beach will actually be. Its apparently 1 buoy readout, and not taking into account other factors. Would never pay for this unless they are going to give accurate report. Right now it’s a only serving as a tide and wind meter for me.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your honest feedback. I have been working lately on greatly improve the overall forecast data quality of Epic. Please take a look at the just released 1.4.0!
Nice design, bad data
I would change to 5 stars if it didn’t misreport water temp as “94F” in Santa Cruz. Water temp is 65F today on a 59F day (which is warm!) but it’s never 94 in the water. Aside from water temp, wind reads 19mph right now but it’s 8:30am there is no wind at all. Sometimes it will say 1mph wind and I get blasted by 20mph gusts. So basically the app is way off on most of the data. Still better than Surfline which is also way off plus bad design. Hopefully you fix the data, and I can change to 5 stars.
