Tide Table software - Request
I've been wanting a simple app to show me tide tables for a while now, and after much searching haven't found much. One app, Wireless Angler, does much more than I need (weather, fishing stuff, etc) and is $5 / month. While it would do the job it's not worth $5 / month to me for something I use 3 - 4 months a year.
Another app, µTide, might work on the BB except there is an install error. Perhaps someone here with the skills and or desire might be willing to tinker with µTide a bit and make it compatible with our BB phones. I know from my search that there a good many of us who want this functionality in a simple app.
Scroll down for the available packages, I was of course interested in the package including the Southeastern states...
The error encountered on install follows as quoted by the author:
"I was told, that µTide would not install (Message: 907 Jar Error) on a Blackberry 7130.
If any Blackberry user finds a way of successfully installing µTide or has any idea how to solve the problem, please tell me. As I don't have access to Blackberry devices, I don't know how to get around this problem."
I tried to install on my Curve and got the same result.
I did try a couple of web sites, but have yet to find one that didn't bork the data layout so much as to make it useless.
I'm about to give WXSYS' offering a try, but again it does way more than tides and is $10 / month!
