    Works great, reads everything to the tee!
  • Great AP for Great Lakes Sailors

    By Sailor Norm
    This is very cool. Give a great summary relevant to boaters by touching your location in the screen. You can see wave height for the bouts near you. When I wasn’t sure what wave period was I emailed a question and Will wrote me back within a few minutes with a detailed article from surfology. Buy it, definitely a good AP, especially for the money.
  • Great go to app

    Thanks for the current update. Live where 3 of the Great Lakes meet, so good for weather and outdoors activity. Look forward to future update. Know NOAA takes their water buoys out in December, but would like to see winter Forecasts like lake effect snow and ice buildup on Great Lakes if it gets cold enough
  • Updated review

    By Ryanme17
    I reviewed this app when it was brand new and didn’t have anything that wasn’t available on other apps. It just keeps adding features and now I use only this and Windy. Great job with the updates!

    Really like the App. Gives good data for more days than others I use it for Lake Michigan There was an issue last night and the developer responded quickly. Nice to have that kind of support
  • Great App for Boating

    By Marc Gall I Tunes
    I’ve been using this app for the last two years. It’s great for getting wave height updates. I’ve got a smaller boat, so wave height and trends are important. This app is always right on!
  • Excellent and reliable weather and buoy reports

    By Capt PJ Howell
    I like this app for four main reasons: 1. The text forecast is concise, simple, and accurate. It tells me wind, temperature, and general conditions. 2. NWS alerts are posted every time the app launches. 3. The buoy data provides near-real-time sea conditions. This let’s me know ahead of time if I should venture outside of the Buffalo, NY breakwater. 4. The discussion tab gives great and accurate insight into forces causing weather conditions over the next 72-96 hours. This is the best weather app I have used so far. I rely on it daily during the summer.
  • Simple App

    By Lake Michigan Boater
    I use many apps to check weather while boating and this app is very quick and responsive to get NOAA weather on the fly. Great App
  • Disappointed

    By Cobalt gal
    Looking for winds and water temperatures for specific harbors and areas from Chicago to Sturgeon Bay. This app is way too general.
