Customer Reviews

  • Missing data

    by Quinn Family

    Cool the app shows data on lighthouses and ships but missing data; e.g., 44031 is closest buoy to cape cod bay side and not included in app data..why?..3 stars

  • Helpful NOAA info

    by Gwd9

    Functionality works very well though saving favorites may take a couple of attempts. Having multiple buoy readinhs at a glance and drilling down for more detail makes thus app a must for a cruising mariners or those wondering if they should venture fifty mles to their boat for a day sail. Well done!!

  • VERY USEFUL APP!!

    by Dazzalan

    I reported yesterday that the program would not load. Turns out was a bug in my 3G iPhone. The program was A--OK all along. I go offshore fishing the Texas coast every week. I use Buoy Data before every trip. Sometimes I'll use this one on my sys, but actually, I can get everything i want and need faster right here. Combine this app with realtide and a really useful info i will get -- and you're ready to roll.

  • Excellent !

    by Ellenger

    The app is excellent. The data is quite so useful for sailors like me, The app comes with some buoys preloaded on the map, I find my local buoy via the link provided and select it, After which it appeared as a pin on the buoy map and the support is great, they answered my inquiry within hours and solved my confusion. Great tool for figuring out if the wind is right for sailing!

  • Useful Info For Surfing!

    by Norford Lit

    Basically this is awesome for dialing in your surf spots. I like that you can see exact heights for precise times of day into the future. Useful and clean. Glad to see this one on my new device!

  • Great Application!

    by Kikmn

    This NOAA app does everthing you needed and gives you the perfect info in fraction of seconds, It even shows the weather reports for the area requested. Also the support behind the app is fantastic. Beleive it or not - I emailed to support team to add my location to the alert zone at 2.52AM, Awesome and Smoothly by 9:16AM, My country was added as an alert location, Thanks to the support team behind this great application.

  • LOVE IT !

    by Nutty Bass

    I live in Arkansas and we are have severe weather almost everyday lately and I just wish I had known about this app sooner. Love it! I purchased this app and then later afternoon we had some severe weather. This app was wonderful to have while we were in our storm shelter without a signal. I was able to hear the NOAA report.

  • Excellent Support!!

    by Ansewill

    This is a great app with excellent support, I never purchase apps, only download the free ones but today on a whim I purchased this app. Super impressed with the info and very easy to operate. With the possible winter storm approaching this weekend I am enjoying this app very much, Thus far this is the best NOAA app i've seen!

  • Overall Outstanding!!

    by Roltwerz

    I bought this app last night, since we've been having frequent storms. I live in the country, too far to hear the tornado sirens. I email to have my country added and it was done within 24 hours. So that shows great customer service. We'll see how the alerts go. Overall outstanding program that uses the power and potential of the iPad to maximum advantage.

  • Excellent Application!

    by H nevin

    As a certified weather greek who grew up watching hurricanes while growing up in Miami, this is a good basic application. I enjoy the ability to see the local weather situation whereever I am, as long as there is a radar nearby. Just used this the other day while playing golf in central FL and was able to decide when to decide when to get off the course. Not too certain about the Ref and velocity options but there are directions on where to find out more. At times it would be nice to see weather on a larger scale but for close in local weather, this app works for me its so useful in my future days too.

  • Very nice

    by Brainal

    Love this buoy app, best and most comprehensive in the App store. It even has ship reports.

  • Junk

    by Rjiidfbv

    This app is a piece of crap.

  • Bogus

    by Bluetubes

    This app does not provide tidal info as advertised. It also does not provide the chart on the details page as advertised. It does provide basic buoy info but that's it.
