Buoys, Tides and Weather

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.

The Best I've now been using the app and keeping a close eye on Surf conditions, the app is 100% spot on! Every change in swell height and direction is precise. Well done........ Like Ronald says "I'm loving it"

Pretty Slick - One of the Best Out There Once You Figure it Out The more I learn about this app the more impressed I am. Some thoughts: 1. The developer is easy to reach and really does reply (even in depth) to your questions and suggestions. 2. The UI is pretty slick and the data is presented in an intuitive and useful way. My favorite is the trending data that shows period and height movement. Rotate your screen and it converts to a graph! I'm giving it 5 Stars based upon it's potential, developer support, and in relation to what is available out their for surfers wanting easy to access buoy swell/wind data. Most buoy apps are a bit lacking, this one has the potential to dominate the pack in a big way. Things I'd like to see: 1. Being able to override spot names. This is helpful because you don't actually choose buoys, you keep selecting spots on land until it synches with the buoy you want. But then you're stuck with a land based name that may or may or may not make any sense. Me, I want to rename them by the actual buoy. 2. Widgetized. I'd love to be able to display the info of my favorite spot right on my phone's home screen, in real time, without having to open the app and drill down to the spot.

FAST! I like it. Easy to set up your buoys, once you know how. Very easy to read, even in the sunlight, don't need to zoom in. Very quick to update the buoys with the latest information. Gives you the information to know what the swell is doing. No unnecessary extras to waste time. Tides and weather at a glance. I don't trust the surf reports online, they're often wrong, but the buoys are real. I wondered why the "Time" (of observation) is in GMT and why it doesn't correspond with local time, but found out (by going to NOAA's site) it's because that's how (and when) NOAA releases the information. Excellent.
