  • Should have read reviews Sep 3, 2017

    By riffin-rich
    2nd re-write: The developer responded the same day as my review, and provided instructions to disable automatic user location (set Auto-Retrieve to off). Having downloaded the app again and making the location changes, I am still nagged with a pop-up error, "No Location. Access to location denied! Check Settings." Another issue is that wave height info is missing from most buoys I've checked along the eastern shore. NOAA comparisons show the data (just not provided from within the app). Excellent marine weather info otherwise.

  • Best App for the Professional Mariner May 5, 2019

    By aeronautic1
    As a yacht delivery captain who delivered vessels all over the world, this app has been my go-to marine weather resource. I have bought other apps that claim to be NOAA Data Buoy but fail miserably in provide NOAA textual data. This app provides marine weather forecasts as well as current and historical data verbatim from NDBC/NOAA. Don’t waste your time or money. Take it from a professional mariner. This is the app you need.

  • Fixed and working! Aug 28, 2019

    By Yodel123!
    I submitted a review saying the app keeps crashing when I try to open the app, preventing me from using the app, and I asked for the developers to fix this issue. Within days of submitting the review they released an update that solved the issue and the app works great! Thank you for the great customer service!

    Quick access to nearby or favorite buoys. Includes ship reports. Tide stations. Lots of goodies. My favorite "real time" marine weather app.

    I set the app aside for years after apple undeveloped the platform. Today Buoy Data is as good as the day it started, lol.

  • Requires GPS ALWAYS May 29, 2017

    By CaptNic
    What a bust. As long as you have gps running the program works. If you have it off to do some planning, it will not work. This is not a navigation program. Once I store my favorites, I should be able to access them. Anytime!

  • Excellent!!! Jul 20, 2018

    No other app combines the features and usability found in this one. As avid boaters, my husband and I rely on it all the time.

  • Great app. Dec 7, 2009

    By Coffinnail
    This is a great app. I work on tug boats and have to cross the Gulf of Alaska on a regular basis. This app makes getting the bouy reports and forcasts WAY easier then navigating NOAA's site. One thing that would be nice is a search function so you can type in a bouy's number or name, instead of having to increase the distance from your location till the bouy you want comes up. Also don't listen to the people that give this app a low score as most of them don't realize that NOAA only puts these bouy's offshore. Although you can look at weather stations that are based on land.

  • Buoys Incomplete Sep 24, 2010

    By First Colony Sailor
    The app is excellent. The data is not as rich as the buoy web data, but it is up to date. The app comes with some buoys preloaded on the map, I had to find my local buoy via the link provided and select it, after which it appeared as a pin on the buoy map. The support is great, they answered my inquiry within hours and solved my confusion. Great tool for figuring out if the wind is right for sailing.

    The data is older than some other apps that I am looking at. Used to be more timely. Now the email address doesn’t work either.

    Suddenly the synopsis has disappeared and the app keeps freezing and shutting down when I try to scroll down.

  • Has potential but needs work Jul 27, 2009

    By Zak & Donna
    Does a good job of summarizing buoy data from buoys near you. The link to "Show Original Article" takes you to the official NOAA buoy web site which DOES have a map of the buoys on it. Unfortunately, there's no back button anywhere - not on the station data screen nor on the linked web page screen. So you can't get from the station data back to the list of buoys nor properly browse the actual NOAA buoy web site, nor return to the data summary screen from the NOAA site, without using the "Reload" button. That's the same a starting the app again. They should add a back button. Or, at least, have an option to open the "Original Article" in the built-in web browser instead of in this crippled environment. You may find it easier to simply use Safari to access the NOAA site and add links to the buoys you use most.
