River flow mobile apps?

What are the Buzzards' recommendations on the best mobile flow apps out there for Androids and I-Phones?

Suggestions and pros and cons?

The one I use is called river flows. It lists all usga and ahps gauges by state and allows you to search and save your favorites...and its free!

I use the Aw site. Nothing on there now. Eddyflower had the best one with hourly updates but it is now kaput.
The downside to Aw is it won't update as muck as eddyflower did

I also use the River Flows app, I don't know if it is on iPhone or not a buddy searched for it a while back and couldn't find it.

As it turns out, I'm in the market for a new phone. One of my requirements is that riverflows is available on whatever platform I choose. It is available now for Android, iPhone and Windows phone.

The river flows app isn't great for front range colorado - it only has usgs guages and is missing many of the CO dwr gauges that are really helpful.

I found that a bookmark on the AW site in the Google Chrome app works better for me.

I have an app for android "River Brain Flows" (Apple rejected the IOS version). The sites new look and feel works good for mobile and tablet viewing on any platform.

River brain has USGS, CDEC, CDWR, some CANWO and AHPS where it can make the match. All gauges updated every 15 minutes. Any river listed on the site is available on the mobile platform (as well as any future river info added will automatically start showing up), favorites, info, etc.

As far as pros and cons you guys can make the call on that.

Have a look at River Guide for your I-Phone. Don't remember if there was any $ involved, but at best i'm thinking $.99. Also not sure if there is an Android option.
