Pretty good

I like the app, I choose to use it mostly to figure out the sea state and swells. The only thing is a lot of the time the swells are not included in the data that is given. I understand that this is not the apps fault that it is what info the buoy is giving but I figure everyone

Everything with it is smooth

Using for a couple of weeks the free version - an ad is displayed every other minute but not as annoying as other reviews say it is… I never got the ads so frequent… perhaps updating the app would do the trick... I guess.

Turned to crap over the winter.

Last summer, I was able to see all of the weather buoys on the great lakes. Finding the relevant ones was a bit of a bother, but once selected ad favorites, it was great. Now, the GLERL buoys are a premium purchase and the app seems to select the buoys that I have checked recently as my favorites (I may check buoys in Florida to see what a hurricane is doing, but most of the time I really don’t care about it).

All in all, this app is now pretty useless and it’s going away.
