Eye Tide 2.0 is available in the App Store

We're happy to announce the availability of Eye Tide 2.0, which adds two important capabilities in time for the beach and boating season: map-based search, and weather forecasts. Both features require an Internet connection.

Map-based search allows you to search for a location of interest (say, a beach or harbor), and the nearest tide prediction station to that location. Search is based on the content of Apple's map service, so you may not find a specific beach, but finding a town or even street address is probably sufficient to select a station with prediction values that match (closely enough) your desired location.

Eye Tide also fetches weather forecasts for the selected tide station location from a service provided by the National Weather Service. The relevant forecast information is summarized for each tide event displayed in the tide table; tapping on the tide event displays the complete forecast. Forecast data includes weather alerts, wave height (most releveant to tide levels), wind, precipitation, and, of course, temperature.
