I say: I live by the sea, and I like to go swimming in the sea with my kids. My kids are 10 and 7, and while they can swim OK, I feel much happier taking them in the sea at low low tide, so they're not out of their depth until they're 30 yards or so from shore. This app lets me see what time is best for me to go swimming with my kids. I'm sure it's not exactly what the authors intended - it's probably meant for sailing enthusiasts - but, in combination with the Firefox Forecast fox extension, it serves my purpose perfectly.

They say: "

  • Designed for interactive use but can also be used from other programs.
  • Generates BMP graphics and text tide CSV spreadsheet files.
  • Worldwide timezones, solar/lunar events, recent stations, realtime tide state icon.
  • Low resource usage typically 4 MB disk, 5 MB RAM active, 1 MB as icon.
  • Tested on Windows 9x, NT4, 2000, ME, XP.
  • Self-contained, nothing else needed.
  • Context sensitive help and all "C" source code included.

    Do not rely on the output of this program for decisions that can result in harm to any person or property. There is no way to provide certified data on a zero budget so if you need guaranteed results then WXTide32 is not for you."

Please Don't Contact Me...

About any app NO LONGER in my 50 Favourites... I simply don't want to know...

For help... Please don't contact ME for help using any program. I only recommend it, I don't (and can't) offer a free support service for every program I recommend.
What you can do for yourself is...if you have any problems with anything I've recommended, contact the author of the program, or Google it.

Re: broken links... Links change. I have stated above the date on which I last checked the links. When I next update this section I'll check all the links again. So please don't contact me if the links don't work - I'll find out eventually.
What you can do for yourself is... if the links I give are broken, try searching for the program using Google or FileMirrors - that's what I'd do!

Re: it's not freeware! All of the programs I recommend in this section are 'free' in the sense that they were at one time distributed as fully functional software with no payment required for their continued use. However... some software companies withdraw their freeware, or offer programs as freeware for a short period before 'upgrading' them to shareware. So please don't contact ME to say any program I recommend is no longer freeware. I'll find out when I next update.
What you can do for yourself is... search the net... As I understand it, if you can find the original freeware distribution, and it still works, there's nothing to prevent you from legitimately using it. You could try the Last Freeware Version or OldVersion.com.
