Please remember that this app can only show data the buoy collects. Not all buoys collect weather data. Not all buoys collect wave data. This app will display all data collected by a buoy. This app is primarily designed to focus on buoys that display the most complete package of marine weather data (waves, weather, forecast, tide etc). If you notice a missing a buoy, please contact me first rather than leaving a poor review. If you are correct, the buoy can be easily be added to the cloud database. Lastly, please feel free to contact me with questions, feedback, feature requests and bug reports at email@example.com Enjoy.
I use this to check wave data for surfing really convenient.
The app could be fine- depending on your region. Disappointed that Alaska info was a bit limited especially for a paid app.
I surf most days and this is my goto app for getting buoy data.
I’m a surfer. This app works great
One thing I love about this app is that it is available on Apple Watch and I can set up the watch to show me wave height! Just by lifting my wrist I can see what the local wave height is and make a determination on whether to go out on the water or not. Also I emailed the developer asking him to add a buoy and within 24 hours it was live on the app. That’s great customer service!
Been good for me so far.
Bouy information is very lacking offshore
It took me a while to figure out how to navigate and this app and get precise weather conditions inshore, close to where I usually take my boat. A quick response to an email request gave me this tip: “the best thing to do is tap multiple places in the water and get a feel for the NWS point forecast for that area. Then, click the Zone button in the top right which will give you an overall summary for the region.” When I zoomed in really close on the map, this technique worked well. The app wasn’t quite as intuitive as I needed at first, but now I understand it.
This robust, well-designed app is one of the few we rely on for up-to-date, accurate weather and sea conditions. The Pro version is worth the investment. Bonus: The developer feedback is human, timely, and knowledgeable. So far, we have had two interactions with the developer; both were positive and provided clear instructions and screen shots to answer our questions. Kudos on an app well done.
This app is awesome, I am always boating offshore and I never leave the dock without checking the app. It has saved me from going out in rough seas on more than one occasion.
