The station has two main views, portrait (which we call the Text view, which you are seeing now), and landscape (the Graph view).

The text view is divided into three sections. The top section shows what the tide/current is doing now (This value is adjusted for the difference between the iPad’s clock’s time zone and the station’s time zone, so setting the iPad’s time zone correctly is important). The upper section also includes a tide clock where you can see at a glance where in the cycle the tide is and when the next event (high, low, ebb, or flood) is predicted to occur. For current stations as shown below, the direction of the ebb and flood are shown, and the general direction the water is heading is highlighted.

The middle section of the Text view shows a two-day list of the tides/currents (The view below shows currents). The list usually contains all the events of the day(s), in some instances you may need to scroll to see the last event. The next event is indicated in
red. Below the table of events are the sun and moon tables that show the rise and set, if present (sometimes the sun doesn’t rise or set, if you’re far enough north or south. Similarly, the moon may not have a rise or a set in that day).

The bottom section of the Text view is an interactive graph that shows the curve of the tides/currents. It is interactive as you can tap and drag on the graph and the target will follow you, and the value shown above the graph will update as you move your finger.
