Buoys, Tides and Weather


OceanLife by BrantApps is a professional tool for gathering swell, wind, weather and tide information for anywhere in the world. This is why you need this app...


★ THE BEST COVERAGE ★
Swell: The application has unparalleled real-time buoy coverage paired with NOAA WaveWatch III modelling capabilities. This means that the app can tell you the swell height for any stretch of coastline in the world. The swell modelling feature (referred to as 'Virtual Buoys' within the app) also provides a 12 hour forecast.
Tide: Gain access to tidal predictions for 7,000+ primary ports and leverage the in-built secondary port offset capability for a simple read-out of the tide times for the next 7 days, tweaked for your position in relation to the primary port.
Weather: Comprehensive 5 day weather forecasts with current wind conditions provide near-shore weather information.


★ EASY TO USE ★
Graphs are used to display complex information such as swell height, period and tide interactions. Intuitive controls with simple one-touch inputs combined with short tutorials remove the complexity of initial configuration whilst maintaining the flexibility required by the more advance user.


★ INTELLIGENCE ★
OceanLife can intelligently discover new buoys as the the data sources are modified in real-time. This means that the minute a new buoy is added or an existing one repaired, OceanLife can connect with it and start retrieving the data you need.


★ GREAT NOTIFICATIONS ★
Using 'spot preferences' defined with each spot input, the application will notify you when conditions are tending toward what you want. You'll never miss that perfect session!


★ 100% YOURS ★
Everything including notifications and automatic synchronisation schedule is up to you with no unnecessary application permissions.


OceanLife is your ocean, de-constructed.

I like the idea of virtual buoys Hey I love to go razor clamming, and having something to predict the wave height and frequency at the beach during clamming tides is right up my alley - yeah I'm game.

Needs more sharks. Needs fewer boys This app didn't tell me where *any* sharks were and one bit me and I lost my balls. This doesn't surprise me as I saw a picture of the developer and he was laughing and punching an effigy of my nutsack. He's a sheep headed monster. It still gets five stars as I think I had testicular cancer.

Needs work. To start it would be nice to have an option to bring up the map without going threw the process of creating a new saved area. Another thing is my area only picks up 1 buoy. There should be 3-4 in the area that I fish. Would it be possible to click on any part of the map and get an average of the condition between the buoys in the surrounding area? The developer said that he is working on a fix. If that happens I will change my rating and update this review.

Great support This app still has some rough edges, but the author was quick to respond to my questions. For the most part, all the pieces are in place for greatness and the author indicates they're working on an update. Looking forward to it.

Cape Point, S.Africa Can't see information for my area. No buoys in all of Africa it would seem. Much less Kommetjie and Cape of Good Hope region.
