The Wolfram Tides Calculator will become your go-to guide for tide information. Calculate the present tide or today's high and low tides, do historical computations, or plan your vacation using the tide forecast. The app can automatically detect your current location or provide data from around the world.
Includes bonus extras:
- Sunrise, sunset, and moon phases
- Properties of oceans, including the speed of sound therein
- Sun exposure information and UV forecasts
- Weather forecast, history, and current look-ups
- Pressure under water computations
Tide predictions proceed by collecting data from tide measurement stations and then extrapolating using a standard mathematical and physical model. This means that the Wolfram Tides Calculator can only give historical, present, and future tide information for locations for which there are tide stations. Presently Wolfram|Alpha has information from more than 2,000 tide stations around the world. If you believe that there is a tide station near you, but we are not reporting data from it, please post the location of the tide station, including a URL if possible. For more information on tide predictions see, for example: http://tidesandcurrents.noaa.gov/predhist.html.
The Wolfram Tides Calculator is powered by the Wolfram|Alpha computational knowledge engine and is created by Wolfram Research, makers of Mathematica—the world's leading software system for mathematical research and education.
The Wolfram Tides Calculator draws on the computational power of Wolfram|Alpha's supercomputers over a 3G, 4G, or Wi-Fi connection.

Does not do currents
This tide app does not support currents. I should have read the product description better. Most "tide" predictor apps support currents so I assumed this one would too. I use currents more often than tide level for navigation. Also, it is hard to find locations. You need to search by a known name. There is no way to get a list of stations based on a location (even current locartion).
There seems to be a conflict in computed values with another iPad app, Tide Graph HD, and I will continue to evaluate. I suppose the best way to check is to have both on hand and for any time and location, check the computed value against actual observations and then decide what is the best one for you to use.
If one does a comparison test, be careful as Tide Graph has more locations for a given general area vs the Wolfram app.
Good for US, but not for other countries
I can only find one location for Mexico. No help feature available on phone or on line. No map of available locations. If you try a location that it doesn't have data, it doesn't suggest nearby location. Thousands of world wide locations doesn't include major tourist destinations in Mexico.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
