U. S.Tides

Living in a coastal area, it’a always a good idea to have easy access to the tide information, and by extension, sunset and sunrise information is important to anglers.  I downloaded U. S. Tides to my smartphone.  It’s a great app.  I tried others, but my grandmother taught me if I can’t say something nice to not say anything at all.

It uses your current location, provides time information for one week, displays a water level graph of the current water level, and sunset and sunrise information.

The app is too simple to use.  Download it, choose your location, use it.  Free apps come with advertisements.  This one is no different.  One time the app didn’t immediately download the data when activated.  Restarting the app fixed that issue.

I recommend this app for anyone who wants to have easy access to the tides information.

eWeather HD App

I think I’m in love.  Okay.  I guess you can’t really fall in love with an app.  This one comes close though!  It was $3.99, but well worth it.  It does everything from current weather to weather forecasts.  It doesn’t just give you some little cute images and numbers in pretty colors.

Meteorological information is provided on graphs and charts in the manner that suits you best.  There are graphs over time to show trends in barometric pressure changes and other information of importance.  If you want to see the most recent radar weather maps, simply tap the menu item.  It also gives information on dew point, UV rays, geomagnetic storms, and earthquakes. Other weather apps can’t hold a candle to this one.
