A Cornish company is hoping its new tide prediction program for mobile phones will be perfect for windsurfers and kitesurfers all over the world.

ashortwalk, best known for their wall-mounted tide clocks and coastal weather stations, have launched mobiletide – an innovative new tide prediction program for mobile phones.

“mobiletide is a simple to use one-off program designed for a mobile phone which can instantly calculate and display the state of tide at just about any location you choose. It can then predict tide times for any given minute, hour, day, month or even year, providing an instant and convenient access to tide times,” said ashortwalk founder Dan Dicker. “It’s like having a huge global tide table book in your back pocket, but you don’t have to buy a new one every year!”.

“Importantly because everything mobiletide needs to work is saved to your phone you don’t need internet access or even mobile reception for it to work, ideal when your on a beach!: there’s no hidden costs or subscriptions just one easy d ownload gives you instant access to tide times, any time, anywhere.”

Available for a single, one-off download charge of just £5, mobiletide comes with a pre-loaded global database of locations. Users can also fully customise mobiletide by adding locations of their choice, then simply scroll between them, select and view the state of the tide instantly.

“Whether you’re travelling through Portuagal on surf safari or working out what the tide will be doing at the weekend , mobiletide puts all the information you need in your back pocket.” Says Dan. “mobiletide ombines the simplicity of a tide clock with the everyday accessibility of a mobile phone”.

Like a tide clock, mobiletide is aligned to the moon’s daily cycle. Tide times are calculated by synchronising your phone’s date and time settings with the tidal cycle of each stored location. Varying neap and spring tidal heights are indicated via a built in moon phase indicator. mobiletide even automatically adjusts for BST/daylight saving.

The mobiletide website,, features a completely interactive demo version of the program, as well as a host of information about how mobiletide works, a list of compatible andsets and a simple step by step guide on how to download and purchase. Most mobile phones under 3 years old will be compatible.

mobiletide costs £5.00 direct – or text ‘tide’ to 60030
