Good app for tides?

Any suggestions for a good tide app for the gulf coast of Florida? I have localtides.net bookmarked, but am looking for an app for the phone.

I thought everyone used iPhones. I just looked and AyeTides does not offer their app for the Android platform. So my suggestion of AyeTides is assuming you use an iPhone.

Aye tides works very well. The Garmin charting app also has easy to use tide and current info. I usually end up using the gamins, since I'm looking at a chart to see where I want to go in the first place.

Around NE Florida, this is handy: tides.mobilegeographics.com

Not an "app," per se, but easily viewable using the browser in any smart phone. Has a nice graphical presentation.

I like Navionics for charting, tides and currents.

Here's the web-app version. The mobile apps are here.

This appears to be an Apple Only app - not available for androids.

Hi Tide is $1.99 in app store, still cheap but not free.

Tom, Try DGS Tides and Tide Prediction. Both are available in the Google Play Store and provide a graphical presentation rather than tide tables of numbers. I find the tide charts easier to interpret at a glance.

re; High Tide

Funny it's on my Droid as I type this but I can't locate it at the Play Store. I guess they removed it, shame it is very nice.

Sorry


The app recommended by FlyWright is very similar to High Tide.

The BoatUS app has decent tide info -- nearby stations, you pick favorite stations, etc.

Forget an app, point your browser to NOAA - NOAA/CO-OPS ODIN - NOAA Tides & Currents
