I've got six coupon codes for Tides NZ... I am sure we have some keen fisher[people] here as well as swimmers, boaties, etc that would benefit of such an app?

It's easy to be in to win: just reply here what you are using NOW to check tides before you go out for a weekend at the sea, fishing or any other activities related to that... You can also send me the reply as @freitasm on Twitter.

I will draw this on Monday afternoon and will PM four winners here and two on Twitter!

We have the old classic tide chart, that we get every year in the mail from a local company, and that's stuck to the fridge.

Ive already got this app.  I have found it to be very good.  Even if you miss out on a free one, you should download it.

Alas, I am non-iOS compliant :-(

But doesn't anyone use swellmap for boat and surf conditions ? ( Bit OT, sorry)

My thoughts are no longer my own and is probably representative of our media-controlled government
