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

Features of the Text view include:
  • The value of the tide or current happening now, when you’re looking at today (otherwise it shows the date).
  • The trend (rising or falling) and what phase the current is in, flood, ebb, or slack.
  • The local station time, automatically adjusted for daylight saving time (summer time)
  • a table of the day’s events, including sun rise, sun set, moon rise, and moon set (which can be turned off if desired, as can the event icons).
  • the time to the next event
  • For current stations you have the direction of the flood and ebb currents, with the present direction highlighted.
  • When you specify favorite stations for later viewing, you can easily change stations by tapping on the page control at the bottom of the view
  • Swipe your finger left and right to change the date, or select a date in the past or future via the control.
  • Change the units (feet, meters, or fathoms; knots, miles per hour, or kilometers per hour)

Additionally, station information (location, astronomical events if not shown on the main view, a local map (internet required - one of only a few features that need the net), a switch to set the station as a Favorite and an easy way to list nearby stations is available via the ‘i’ or information button.

And with a flip of the iPhone, you get the Graph view of the day, which features an interactive graph - drag your finger across the graph and the target will track you and the time and value under the target is displayed. For current stations, the direction of the water is displayed as well. And like the text view, swiping your finger across the station name will change the date. Flip back and the date will follow to the Text view.
