Tide Predictions Accessible from Cell Phones

NOAA tidal prediction data is now accessible through cell phones. Clear and colorful graphics on the cell phone screen display information for predicted high and low tides, sunrise, sunset, and moon phases for over twenty-three hundred locations around the United States. A cell phone can even be programmed to ring at selected tide cycles. This innovative application provides recreational boaters, fishermen, and beachgoers a faster, easier way of obtaining tide predictions. Until now, NOAA tidal prediction data was available only over the Internet, on CD-ROM, or by purchasing tide tables from commercial vendors.
