A rising tide floats all boats, so we updated the tide data in the hope that this would also float your boat. Boats float right? I hope so, because if yours isn't floating, you might want to do something about that.

Also fixes and issue on Samsung phones updated to Android 4.4 where the text could sometimes overlap with the action bar, which is a fun game, don't get us wrong, but it wasn't intentional.

Recommended. Great app, accurately displays local weather. It's not without flaws, though: It needs a tablet version. Lots of wasted space on my Nexus 7, with the information displayed on the bottom third of my screen. If you turn on notifications for weather warnings, prepare to get spammed. It should stack the notifications.

Not as good on Android as on iPhone...... I had been using this app without a problem on my iPhone and I loved it....but since changing over to an android device it seems to have developed a couple of bugs. 1: The radar crashes every time I zoom in or go to change the range eg: from 128 to 64 etc 2: I no longer have tidal information even though it states that is "now" available. :/ edit: running kitkat 4.4.4 on Sony Xpedia Z3

Pocket weather is poor Inaccurate. Slow to update. Worse satellite options than previous version. Customer service is non-existant. Tried email..... no response.
