This app provides hours and water depths of nearly 10,000 tides or currents stations in the world, including 160 ports of reference for France until 2030. Predictions are made on the basis of a perpetual calendar by harmonic calculations with usually very reliable results, with deviations less than 3% with the forecast of the SHOM, and regularly updated. This allows to avoid an annual subscription and does not ask for connection to the internet since the database is integrated.
The GPS position is displayed on the map at the launch of the application allowing direct access to the nearest stations. Several other research methods allow to select stations
AyeTides can be interfaced with iNavX and thus provide the list of the nearest stations of your position directly on the map.
AyeTides on Appstore includes a French translation by Francis Fustier.

In addition to the 190 proposed french ports, 90 foreign ports close to the French coast are available (Spain, Portugal, England, Morocco)....
