Predictions are based on the harmonic method, using constants from the Hydro offices (UKHO, SHOM, NOAA, BOM, CHS etc). There are differences between the app predictions and the official Hydro office tide tables, as these are based on large numbers of constants that are not made publicly available. The Hydro offices consider the harmonic methods used in this product appropriate for navigation.
Always consult tidal curves and take into account local weather (pressure and wind) and swell conditions, which can have a very significant effect on sea water levels.

Tnx to developer and inform there is a little difference by admiralty.
Best tide app for the price (but not free)
Best tide app around - really. I'm not sure what the complaining is about. I bought this app when it was $2 up-front (not on the app store), and it has features normally found in similar apps selling for $10-15. Loads of US locations - I count about 20 near Paris Island alone while other apps often just show one. Also it has offline use (no connection required), nice data display, currents ….. I recently killed three other tide apps on my phone since I found I no longer used them since getting this app.
As far as I can see, the negative comments are due to the "free" claim. Apparently that is just a limited demo. Probably not a good marketing tactic, but with so many tide apps out there you need some way to try-before-buy. Regardless, the app is a great bargain at the price. (Not affiliated in any way with anyone.)
Not good for use in the States. You need to buy it every year for a new license. Not worth it.
Developer Response ,
Hello, thanks for the feedback. We have to pay royalties each year for the new data and we aim to keep the cost as low as we can. It'd be interesting to get more information from you about how you use the app - feel free to email email@example.com if you'd like to.
