    Worked well until the most recent update of windows phone. Now crashes when I try to view a forecast.

    Love this app, bugs seem to be fixed, as I have not had issues recently. Paid version is worth every penny. Best forecast I have come across for fishing.

    Crashes on startup and also doesn't display the wave direction correctly (wind and wave direction are consistently displayed as being identical).

    Crashes.. This app sucks
  • by David 10/1/2013
    Looked great / worked great on free version. Then it stopped working, which I mistakenly assumed was a limitation of the free version, so I paid for it. After many months now I find that it periodically stops working -- just won't stay open and requires a delete and reinstall whereupon you loose all of your saved locations. In short, its great when it works, but quite buggy.
