Ratings and Reviews
This is a great app with a few minor shortcomings. Many of the islands are not named so a quick cross reference is slowed. It would be nice if the boundaries were slightly expanded and included more of Admiralty Inlet and Deception Pass. Also it would be nice if it extended up to Nanaimo. Nevertheless, very worthwhile.
At one point I was using the app and I found what I thought was an error since there was a disagreement between the paper current atlas and the app. I recorded the time and the referenced pages and reached out to the author of the app. He wrote several emails explaining the additional algorithms used for the app, and how since the paper atlas is by hour is often doesn’t show small reversals and other small changes. He walked me thru the data used and how his app presents the analysis. I won’t stop referencing the paper current atlas but I will use this app as well. Randall
I sail a small boat in these waters, and depend on the Canadian current atlas for every trip. This implementation is fantastic. And since you have to buy an update to the printed atlas every year for $20, the once off price for the app is well worth it. The app also lets you scan the currents hourly, instead of paging through the printed guide. Very impressive.
