anyTide anywhere anyplace

We are pleased to announce the arrival of anyTide  fresh into Apple App Store. More info here.

“Tidal predictions anywhere along the UK coast that can also be used offline via the use of bookmarks.”

Its been an interesting process going from a blank-ish drawing board to this fully fledged universal tide prediction app. Some of the more tricky aspects included:

  • Integration of MATLAB libraries
  • Partitioning of functionality between client and server
  • Security
  • User expectation analysis
  • In app purchasing models
  • Custom interactive charting

We hope we have arrived at a good set of compromises, and more importantly a unique app offering unique functionality from a unique scientific capability resident in the National Oceanography Centre.
