    Tide Tool for Blackberry??

    BBCrackman...I don't know if you have seen this program that runs on Palm...It is a graphing software that you download once, and it lets you see the tide charts for any place on either coast either in graph format or chart, for ever.
    It is called "Tide Tool". I don't know if you are a programmer but you certainly know alot about the ins and outs of making a blackberry work better.
    There have been many people on various forums asking for this application. It is open source and the author said he doesn't have the time to convert it, but will give the material to anyone who has the knowledge to make the change. Anyone at RIM capable of doing it? Check it out on a Palm if you have one, it is great for fishing, sailing, kayaking, diving, etc. It would probably be a good app that people would purchase for a little money, although it was free on the Palm.

    Thanks for the link....it is a little cumbersome however. If you ever get a chance to check out the Tide Tool for the Palm. It is downloaded once, and knows what day and time it is from your calendar. It opens at the last location you checked and a sine graph of the high and low tides appears. You can click forward or back for looking at different days or months.
    All locations on the East and West coast are stored along with their respective tides. It must be a large program to have all that data unless they use some time of harmonic algorhythm for the predictions at the various locations.
