Radar Now
IPhone:
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/radarno ... 39673?mt=8

Android:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... _now&hl=en


It's not the best on graphics but it's quick and easy to check the radar on the water for those late storms.

Tide Chart
IPhone:
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/tide-ch ... 08377?mt=8

Android:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... tide&hl=en


It's not your (Tides4Fishing.com) but great quick tool to use again on the water or before.

I like the Weather Channel app for weather, but still can't stop using windfinder.

I also like the FWC app. You can put in your information and keep your fishing license in the app and also buy your license from the app.

I use a few but don;t really rely on them.. I also don;t take my phone out of its otterbox while on the water, they just cost to much to replace and don't add any value for me while fishing.. and I certainly don't answer it while fishing.

Apps I use, (Nexus Android phone)
WindFinder Pro
Radarnow
Bouys Pro
Arcus (local Weather)
Fishing and Hunting Solunar Pro

FishRules for local quick reference to slots and limits.

I use Navionics which is a great fishing app but it does cost around $45 to use. Mossy oak is a hunting and fishing app which gives you radar, weather, way points, and solar lunar game peak times and is free.

I use an Iphone

The weather channel- pretty standard app, has radar if you scroll down
windfinder- I wish it had the super forecast.
KMZ loader- a secondary app that loads your google earth file waypoints on the google earth app. just have to open the program from the kmz loader app. and load your kmz file from itunes.
My Tide Times- gives you a map to lookup your favorite tide locations. best one I found without a long list you have to sort through.
Fishon-321fishing app you can load your catches directly from your smartphone.
Skipper-Hand drawn marine charts that let you know what your favorite creek is called.
Fish/Hunt FL- FWC app that loads your fishing license. I also believe you can purchase new license from the app. Never have to go to walmart again and wait forever for someone to come and print one out for you.

SL Fishing- experimenting with at the moment but don't trust it with logging my catches. useful map view when your google maps or earth map is too dark to see in the sun.
