Explore NOAA's NDBC buoys and set a homescreen widget to stay up-to-date on your favorites. I built this to stay on top of the surf but it would also be great for boaters, fishermen or weather geeks.
To add the widget to your homescreen you must go to the widget section of the app list. Some phones also allow you to add widgets by long-clicking on your homescreen as well.
On some phones the widget doesn't immediately show up in the widget list after installation. If it doesn't show up in the list after installation you can try waiting a while or if that doesn't work, restarting the phone. The widget should show up then.
Right now the widget only shows wave height and period. I'm planning on updating it with the option to show swell and wind data as well. I also want to show wave direction in the widget, as well as set up customizable alerts when a certain height/period is reached. Stay tuned for those updates.
If you like this app all I ask is that you give it a good rating and review. If you run into any bugs or have any features that you'd like added just send me an email and I'll do my best to get it done.
