Very cumbersome
This app does show you tide information if you spend to the time to decipher it, but the presentation is abysmal and I'm going to look for something better. Among my many complaints: - Very tedious procedure to get tides for your current location. You have to find your blue dot on the map, scroll in a ton (since it starts zoomed way out), then wait for the app to load tide locations, then click on one. This should all be automatic. - The tide graph uses many bright colors and is very hard to read. - Even simple questions like "is the tide rising or falling" or "when is low tide" require careful study of the app. - App is not updated for retina displays, iPhone 5's larger screen, or landscape orientation. - Too many buttons that don't seem to do anything. Why is there an "inbox", am I going to get messages?? Why is there a refresh button, are the tides going to change?? Why does the camera icon take me to the weather??

Just what I needed
Was able to find a station close enough (woodbridge, va) and is a huge help in monitoring the tides. I appreciate the graph and data in chart form. Useful!

Easy to use
Simple, effective, elegantly designed. Which is why I was so surprised to see that the app wasn't iPhone 5 ready (still set for the smaller iPhone 4 screen size).
