Product of the Week: Know the Tides as easily as the Time

'Tidal Chronoscope - climbed quickly to No.1'    .    Click Here to view large photo

The Tidal Chronoscope has climbed quickly to hit Number One for 'New' Navigation Apps. A Miami Beach-based company is the developer behind the ChronGlobal Tidal Chronoscope application for iPhone, one of the fastest growing paid iPhone applications.

ChronGlobal Corporation's application includes real-time monitoring of the tides via a sophisticated, virtual wristwatch featuring the current level of worldwide tides, along with lunar and solar position at the user’s location.

'What started off as a pet project, turned into a major undertaking. Working with our team of PhDs, it took us nine long months to develop this application. It’s based on my original tide watch for Kriëger Watch Corporation. But I have taken it a step further and built a database of 9,400 reporting tide stations around the world. It’s a must have app for open-water enthusiasts,' stated inventor and CEO, Ira Kriëger.

The Tidal Chronoscope is a great example of a user friendly, dynamic application that gives high and low tide information at a glance. The app works utilizing the GPS feature of the iPhone tapping into a database of over 9,400 worldwide stations. So no matter where the user is in the world, it will tell the current state of the ocean tides at their location instantly. The app can also track any other tide location in the world at the same time! It’s far superior to anything else out there.

Additionally, the application offers a virtual wristwatch for following the daily lunar movements, and an additional virtual watch for following the daily position of the sun. Users can also change the style of the watches. The app allows users to set the watch up to seven days into the future and can predict the tides for any day, hour or minute in order to plan open-water excursions ahead of time.

The newly launched application, which offers tidal conditions and forecasting, along with lunar and solar positions in a Swiss-watch display, has shot to the number one position in the App Store’s Navigation 'new' category in less than one week’s time. The app already has the highest consumer rating of all Tide Apps, probably thanks to its luxurious looks, accuracy and flexible features.

The company is also creating specially designed mobile applications for the iPad and Android platforms, which are due to launch next month.

About ChronGlobal:
From the Miami Beach-based inventor of the original Kriëger Tidal Chronometer, the company has introduced this remarkable application that tells the tide, and is going to change the lives of anyone with an interest in water-oriented activity and includes tide, sun and moon information.
