Things I like this week, volume 25.

CRNT

I love surfing. Problem is, being a grown up with like, work and kids, I don’t get the straight-up days of beach time I once did. So I need to maximize the time I do get. This means checking tides and forecasts and trying to catch the fickle NJ conditions when they’re decent, and when I can get in the water.

CRNT is an awesome little iPhone app I found at the end of last summer that gives you water conditions for your favorite spots in a really nice package. I really like the design quite a bit, which changes with the time of day. Even better is Apple Watch support, which adds one of the only things I really want to do with my watch. (I’ve had multiple surf sport watches, G-Shocks, Freestyles, etc. but since getting an Apple Watch, I don’t really wear them much anymore, and have been missing this functionality.) The CRNT watch app is simple, focused, and nice. But they’ve also added a glance and a complication to check the tide height and launch the app quickly.1

I realize this won’t appeal to about 99% of the handful of you who actually read these posts, but whatever. You should start surfing so you can use this app.

  1. I mean, it’s a relative term. We are talking about the Apple Watch.
