    If you love to be near or on the water, Tide Alert is a must-have app.
    As you could probably tell by the name, the app provides tide forecast data from NOAA and a moon phase calendar. You can setup alerts for high and low tide each day. And the app doesn't need to be connected to the Internet to work.
    And the app has just received a nice update with a number of improvements.

    Concept: Please Apple, end the drought already and bring the weather app to iPad

    We've been saying it for years, where's the iPad's weather app? It's been missing from the iPad since day one but many of us expected the app to eventually make its way over. It is one of the few first-party holdouts that haven't made the leap to iPad, despite being an obvious addition.

    Today is the first anniversary of app developers' D-Day: FreeFortnite - Apple will lose if it doesn't change course and present real solutions
