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.
This is definitely the best app for marine weather and conditions. None of the free apps are nearly as useful or accurate. Conditions change quickly on the water and this app keeps up with the changes. The Charts tab in the app has some great graphical info on everything from wave heights, wind info and water and air temps.
I go fishing in Alaska every year, and one of the most important weather conditions for us is wind speed and direction in specific areas of the ocean. Too windy and you can’t anchor up, wrong direction and you’re gonna have a miserable time getting to the spot. Used the app yesterday to get the forecast for a spot 70 miles away and in the open ocean, and when we got there the weather was exactly as forecasted. Wrote the developer an email requesting a small feature and got a reply within 12 hours. Just buy it, you won’t regret it.
Haven’t used the app very long long but it’s already been useful in planning a trip across the sound. Really wish the app supported landscape mode though, that’s how I have my iPad mounted on my boat and it’s frustrating to have to take it off to use the app!
The only question I have is reading the forecasted wave parameters I don’t know what swell 1 thru swell x mean. I hope the forecast is a little on the aggressive side and we see less wind and waves than what I see
How can such a data driven graphical app not support landscape mode? If I had known this before buying, I would not have purchased. Annoying to use on an iPad.
This is now my go-to weather app. As an avid sailor in New England, I really appreciate all the vital marine weather and related information at your fingertips. The app is informative, intuitive, easy to use and provides great access to information needed to make wise decisions about safe and fun boating. An added benefit is that the developer really seems to care about his work. He responds quickly to questions. Highly recommended!
Purchased to have quick access to regional NOAA bouy information, a couple of significant bouys are missing. Bouys are readable directly on NOAA site. Will just bookmark that site and delete this app.
Pulls data from NOAA site in an easier to access format.
Great app for finding out the weather on the water in your location. Highly recommend this app.
Last night I was watching the radar, it was showing a lot of lightning strikes, which we were getting. However it was also raining pretty hard, with gusty winds, but the radar wasn’t showing anything for our area .
