Back to hard copy for tide prediction

Fishing on the Delta this past weekend was very difficult. I can't remember ever fishing a tide like one I faced last weekend. The water level fluctuated a total of one foot between high and low tide meaning that the water was barely moving where I was fishing. In the past I used to carry a tide book in my boat but have since relied on downloadable tide app for my phone. I don't know if it's me reading using the app wrong but I'm still not able to get an accurate tide prediction.
