Pirate Buoy allows users to find NOAA buoys based on current location, current address, or specific longitude/latitude coordinates. Once a buoy list is created for a specific location users may view buoy data, map the location of a buoy station, favorite buoy stations (for persistence), and setup a "Buoy Call". "Buoy Calls" are notifications sent to the user (even when the application is not running) when certain user defined data criteria is met. For example, if a user wishes to setup a "Buoy Call" for BUOY_X when the wave height exceeds 4 feet all they have to do is setup this criteria under the "Buoy Call" setup window. The following data items are available under the "Buoy Call" setup window:

Wind Direction
Wind Speed
Gust Speed
Wave Height
Dominant Period
Average Period
Mean Wave Direction
Atmospheric Pressure
Pressure Tendency
Air Temperature
Water Temperature
Dew Point
Tide (* Rarely available)

"Buoy Call" Notification update every 30 minutes.

Great for surfers, boaters, or general ocean enthusiasts. Enjoy.

    Galaxy S5. Shows "local" buoys in California, I'm on Lake Michigan. No option to change location, no method to get to any settings. May need to be updated to work on this phone.

    I like the small size and speed. But saving favorites doesn't work, so need to do a search every time.
