This Android application calculates and presents the tide for a given day, time, and location.It does not require
internet service, because it operates with built-in formulas and data.
It first shows the location, date and time for which the tide is being calculated.
Next it displays the present tidal status. This is a snapshot in time, including the present height of the tide, the direction is it flowing, and how fast the tide level is
changing. These items are presented along with the time for which they were calculated.
It then displays the times and times of the tidal
extremes, the high tides and low tides. Finally it displays a plot of the tide heights for the day. The green dots are the hourly heights. The white cursor-line marks the present time. The red dots show the high and low tides.
You can make the graph larger or smaller, by using the settings menu, change text size command, to trade off display space between the graph and the tables above it.
Tide Now supports four touch-screen gestures. The display can be changed to the next day or the previous day by swiping left or right. The display can be refreshed by using a long press. The Favorites Menu is displayed with a downward swipe.
Tide Now has no advertising and does not access phone features except the touch screen.

Oct 28 2013 - Tide Now CA--WILLING TO TRY OUT NEW VERSION?
I built a new version. It is a permanent version, no yearly updates necessary.
- Android 2.3 and above
- perpetual calendar (1901 to 2100)
- The favorites is reworked so you choose what goes in there (and where).
- The display sizing is automatic, there is no text size to deal with.
- Graph cleaned up.
- Please email me to request the file, let me know what device(s) you will use.
thanks very much!! Larry[email protected]
