The Marineforecaster application was created through the developer's personal needs for his fishing adventures, whether made by boat or along the coast. The need for a detailed weather forecast, especially for weather at sea, was deemed necessary as existing applications did not meet expectations, not only in terms of forecasting successes but also in terms of direction and air intensity, direction and wave height, temperatures, rainfall and other details such as water temperature, cloud coverage and other information important for the day.
At Marineforecaster we are always working to improve and add new applications that have been designed to fill in the gaps that existed thereby giving a big boost to the Application. Also, our users became more demanding over time in asking for improvements. So, more options have been added, such as information on ports, marinas, boat ramps, gas stations, etc.
Because safety is our primary goal, and with the permission and assistance of the National Observatory of Athens, NOAA of America and Weather Underground, it is now possible with one click for the user to get real weather data for the area of interest, anywhere. Thus, real-time data gives the user a safe choice to safely plan his/her sailing routing.
After a year of bathymetry data processing, we have created maps with specific depths. Maps were something we wanted to give to our users, to provide a more specific understanding of the specific depths in the areas they are fishing or sailing in rather than to act as navigation maps (We do not recommend the use of our maps for navigation purposes except in emergency and under the responsibility of the captain of the vessel).
We plan to become the best free application for the seagoing population. With your help and your positive vote through review at Apple Store, we are convinced that we will succeed.
For anything related to the application, we are always at your disposal!

Ratings and Reviews
App crashes upon launch
New iPad w very little space used and the app crashes upon launch. Also no recent reviews so the app may no longer be supported.
Developer Response ,
Dear friend, I know I am replying so late but I was updating the Android version and wasn't able to support the iOs before the new upgrade. My team and I believe we will be able to publish the new version in a couple of months. The crashes are produced because of WU stations (no longer supported for free from WU) & partly because of NOAA api, since we are facing same behavior on Android version occasionally. We believe we fixed all bugs and now we are able to proceed with the new iOs upgrade which will have a lot to offer to the end user like yourself! Pls accept my apologies!!!
Great way to watch for weather windows
As a cruising sailor, I rely on sail docs and other sources at sea. This is a convenient way to watch things when ashore with wifi. The current model is something no other software I have does . Well done!
Great app. Have been using gribs for years and this is the best. Would be nice to be able to 'name' saved gribs. But there is so much else that is right with this I gave it the full 5 stars anyway
