App Reviews

  • Disappointed

    By Cobalt gal
    Looking for winds and water temperatures for specific harbors and areas from Chicago to Sturgeon Bay. This app is way too general.
  • Erie, PA

    By Strong Vincent '68
    This app is very helpful as the marine forecast can be checked against the current buoy data.
  • So far so good

    By lake crosser
    4 star now. Will Update as I use it.
  • Inaccurate, unreliable info!

    By gdslaw
    App is useless. For example, for Lake Erie (west) no matter what winds are forecasted app says “waves one foot or less.” Duh!! Lake Erie does not have one foot waves with winds gusting to 20 mph.
  • Just what I was looking for

    By Check is in the mail
    This is a great app. I've been looking for wave predictions from an app for a while this is great. I'll have more once I know for sure how accurate it is. Works great and the nice thing is I put the app on my wife’s device and she loves it. Being on Lake Erie things change quickly.
  • Nice app

    By Ff-159
    👍 puts the information I need to go out on the lake all in one spot.
  • Free National Weather Service site beats it hands down.

    By Getaway sailor in Cleveland
    Not sure what this app is for. Go to, input a city near your boating location, and click in the water on any map, and if it’s available, NWS will give you the same info, and it’ll give it to you in portrait or landscape. The NWS options are much more complete, and buoy data is much better displayed.

    Excellent, accurate, real time boating information. Larger print on the buoy data page would be easier to see when using an IPhone.

    For me personally, this has been the most useful Lake Erie forecast tool to date.

    Loving the accuracy, I have been testing your reports daily on Lake Superior near my home in Marquette, the wind speeds have been right on and the wave heights have been very accurate. The air temperatures are within + or - 2°. What more could you ask for from the Great Gitche Gumee. I have lived on her for 60 years and very aware of her unpredictability.
