Marine Weather is phenomenal app with an equally helpful and talented developer behind it. I use the app daily to get critical weather information when sailing or simply when just curious about the weather or weather trends. Buoy data, forecasts, maps, charts, trends, swell and tide forecasts, and more combine to deliver invaluable data to the mariner. The app is extremely customizable and gives you insight to the most important real-time data pulled directly from NOAA and other sources. I’ve used many weather apps in the past and this is the #1 by far. Simply, a perfect app. Don’t think twice before supporting this developer and the great work he’s doing.
I go fishing in Alaska every year, and one of the most important weather conditions for us is wind speed and direction in specific areas of the ocean. Too windy and you can’t anchor up, wrong direction and you’re gonna have a miserable time getting to the spot. Used the app yesterday to get the forecast for a spot 70 miles away and in the open ocean, and when we got there the weather was exactly as forecasted. Wrote the developer an email requesting a small feature and got a reply within 12 hours. Just buy it, you won’t regret it.
And it looks good so far, but I have to immediately question the ‘Terms & Conditions’ we have to agree to, or we’re told not use the app. Well, we just paid for the app, so ‘Agree to this or flush your money down the drain’ is probably not entirely legally binding. I think the shrink wrap stuff has to have a mechanism for declining that doesn’t disadvantage the user. The T&C stuff has all gotten to be a bit too much. How about everyone act in good faith and do the right thing? That’s the only TOC I truly willfully agree to.
This is now my go-to weather app. As an avid sailor in New England, I really appreciate all the vital marine weather and related information at your fingertips. The app is informative, intuitive, easy to use and provides great access to information needed to make wise decisions about safe and fun boating. An added benefit is that the developer really seems to care about his work. He responds quickly to questions. Highly recommended!
We purchased a boat and live on the Chesapeake Bay. I reviewed several apps and chose this one and I’m very pleased. It is easy to use and provides timely and accurate information. I am also a surfer and use Surfline Pro and this app provides similar data but in an easier format and for a broader area. I had one quick question about the alerts and the developer wrote me back instantly and answered my question.

Please remember that this app can only show data the buoy collects. Not all buoys collect weather data. Not all buoys collect wave data. This app will display all data collected by a buoy.
This app is primarily designed to focus on buoys that display the most complete package of marine weather data (waves, weather, forecast, tide etc).
If you notice a missing a buoy, please contact me first rather than leaving a poor review. If you are correct, the buoy can be easily be added to the cloud database.
Lastly, please feel free to contact me with questions, feedback, feature requests and bug reports at email@example.com.
