Product of the Week- Tide Application for iPads

by Marine News Wire/Sail-World on 5 Jun 2012
ChronGlobal - now for iPad .. .
ChronGlobal Corporation, the developer of the successful ChronGlobal Tidal Chronoscope App, has just released a new specifically designed version for iPad users, which has shot to No. 6 position in the Nav category in less than a week.

Tidal Chronoscope HD uses the iPad’s GPS to deliver accurate current tide predictions worldwide in stunning HD graphics. The original version of this app was wildly popular, enjoying a spot in the top one percent of all paid iPhone apps, and was embraced as the ultimate tidal guide by boating enthusiasts.

The app offers a host of features to help users who are interested in obtaining tide information for mostly anywhere on the globe. It automatically retrieves local tide predictions from more than 9,400 worldwide tidal reporting stations, and lets users add their own custom reporting stations.

'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 app that gives tide information at a glance, and it goes a step further in enabling users to create their own custom tide stations. 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.

Additionally, the app offers a virtual wristwatch for following the daily lunar and sun movements. The app allows users to predict the tides for any day, hour or minute up to seven days in advance. An interactive tide graph and map adds to the abundance of new features.

The original versions, ChronGlobal Tidal Chronoscope for the iPhone and Tidal Chronoscope for the Android, have garnered accolades among anyone interested in water-oriented activity.

Is the low take-up of available DSC connection to radio because of sailor irresponsibility, or is it more complex? Recently we published a story about how few yachts had their Digital Selective Calling (DSC) equipped VHF radio connected to their GPS so that their position would be recorded in an emergency. The tone of the article suggested that the low take-up was an indication of the irresponsibility of sailors, but responses to Sail-World after the article suggest that the situation is more complex than this

But why the moon? and if the moon only circles the earth once a day, why are there two tides? Here, Grant Headifen of Nauticed, explains
