Tide & Currents (US) app now available.

We are pleased to announce the release of Tide & Currents app.  The app is available for all Android & Blackberry devices (phones & tablets).

Here are some of the features in the current update:

  • High low tide predictions (daily, weekly, monthly predictions).
  • Tidal Current predictions (daily, weekly, monthly predictions).
  • Active Current Station data
  • Favorite Station Manager
  • View Stations as overlay on a map.

Here is a typical workflow to use the app.

  1. Identify stations where you serf/sail etc and add them to your favorite list. This makes it easier to access the station data.
  2. The best way to identify stations is to browse the catalog and select "View on map". For e.g. the tidal current prediction stations that I am interested in are under:
    • California -> Golden Gate Bridge

Update: These features will also be available to existing users of our 'Gps Nautical Charts' app.
