Mike Aynsley from OpenFile explains the benefits of Swim Guide to users in the Vancouver area:
From the Vancouver Courier, we learn of Swim Guide. a new mobile app for Vancouver water worshippers. The app does exactly what you’d expect it to: points out the closest beaches to the user’s location while supplying real-time and historical water quality information.
Along with GPS-based directions to swimming holes and surf spots, users can view beach photos and descriptions. More importantly, they can see if the water is safe for swimming.
Swim Guide shares the best information we have at the moment you ask for it. Always obey signs at the beach or advisories from official government agencies. Stay alert and check for other swimming hazards such as dangerous currents and tides. Please report your pollution concerns so Affiliates can help keep other beach-goers safe.
