TidesX: UK Tide TimesTidesX is an intuitive and easy-to-use app for checking the tide times anywhere in the UK. It features predictions and live information for over 600 coastal locations, taken straight from the UK Hydrographic Office. I built TidesX after unsuccessfully searching for a simple and good-looking tide times app, and it has since served over 150,000 tidal predictions for locations all around the country.

AuthenticateAuthenticate is a simple two-factor authentication app, built with React Native and available on the Google Play store. It was originally built to provide a faster, more modern alternative to older two-factor authentication apps. Designed around the core principles of ease-of-use, speed and security, it includes cryptographic implementations from scratch for all the required algorithms, including SHA-1, HMAC-SHA-1, HOTP and TOTP, in pure TypeScript. Furthermore, it is completely open-source and free to use, making it a great choice for two-factor authentication.
