    I know a few people who have chucked their smart phones overboard, but unless tied to 35 m of 6mm best galvanised, as a minimum, they do not seem to hold too well. Personally I prefer a CQR.
    But, we could have, android versus Iphone, in an anchor thread?

    Tide Prediction (Android) is a simple tide times app. Needs no data connection and seems to have very few Ads.
    Just wish I could find a free tide app that did Poole.

    Not really.

    I know a lead developer of an open source app. He has a company selling rock solid hardware that uses the app internally.

    And I know of others who sell services that rely on an OpenSource application; well-known and highly regarded apps in my own field are PostgreSQL, PostGIS, OpenLayers and many products depending it them, The companies leading development of these packages do so to support their main product; it's a lot cheaper, and more flexible than using a commercial application for the same purpose.
