Battery Killer Good idea, bad execution. The app collects your location (not sure why it needs it), loads all the buoy list each time it opens (haven't they heard of cache?), and going to settings crashed the app. But what got me to finally uninstall it and simply bookmark the buoy of interest webpage was the battery consumption. Never seen such a drain on my device before, it had to go. Sorry Noaa; love the buoy, hate the app..
