Tide Prediction Application for iPhone or iPod Touch

I recently came across this very helpful application for my iPod touch.
To take pictures near the sea it is always important to know the tides. For example if you want to take pictures of under-water-mark features along a beach or cliff and for capturing water movement with a long shutter speed, it is vital to know when and how fast and high the water is coming in on you and your tripod and other gear.
Bryan Aamot of Brainware has written this application from scratch especially for the iPhone and iPod Touch. It is an entirely self contained tide prediction application that you can use anywhere in the world.
  • Contains 1 year worth of tide predictions
  • No Internet Connection Required
  • 7 day tide graph based on the current time
  • Built in map for easy port selection
  • Detailed high/low tide event list
  • Sun / Moon graph with moon phases
  • Choose between meters or feet
  • Uses GPS or other location services when available.

You can buy it for the very reasonable price of.3.99€ at the i Tunes Store.
More information and some Q &A are on Bryan´s website
