I use marine weather as it also has tide prediction stations on it. To be honest I normally review the night before on easy tide and write it down on paper so I don't need to get my phone out on the water

Not quite an app but I bookmark and shortcut to the relevant BBC Weather page. No adverts either.

I have "tide prediction" app on my phone. It only has primary ports, not secondary ones, but the app is free. It seems to not give exactly the same times and heights as Reeds Almanac but it's close enough for general use. I also have Navionics UK app and that includes secondary ports as well, plus tidal streams. That costs around 40 from memory.

Tide times

Again, not an app but a website link

Free ones
Free charts, tide tables and pilotage : from Visit My Harbour
HW/LW times (in GMT) for 400 ports for all of 2014.

For better info and within 7 days I use Easy Tide
Select Port - EasyTide - on-line tidal predictions from the UKHO

Subscription
and on my PC - Bellfield Tide Plotter which I have used for many years

Tide prediction does not need an internet connection to work so can be handy if you happen to be in a poor reception area.

Boatie ticks a lot of boxes for weather, tides, tidal flows etc.

I use Tide Prediction.
Its free and does not need an internet connection.
I had one before that needed an internet connection and when you needed it, I could never get a connection.
