This is a great application - now I just have to find a good way to keep the iphone dry but usable.


While it is really good as it is, there are a couple of minor improvements I would make.

The first I'd like to see would be allowing you to alter the name of a gauge - for example, be able to change Green River at Green River, WY to Green River WW Park. This is fairly minor, but would be nice.

The other I would love to see is the ability to set custom flow levels. For example, a gauge may be showing as Medium flow level, but could be low for my purposes. Along with this, I'd also like to be alerted if the flow reaches a certain level - i.e. push a notification or even email or text if River X is flowing at 6000 cfm.

I purchased this app the day i bought my i-phone and I think it isn't really that great, especially for 5 bucks. Sorry.

Maybe if you were traveling around and needed to know what is flowing nearby, yes, but I usually know where I am going and where to get better information.

Not really that cool, other than that it was first to market. blah.

I bought this app last year I think, anyway, I think its pretty good! Especially when I'm not near a computer, I can pick up my iPhone and check the flows pretty easy using my favorites.
Granted, there are some things I'd like to see on it but its a good app.

For non-iphone, but smart phone users, phateye mobile flows is nice. For Colorado boaters, the DWR streamflow page runs pretty smooth on mobile.

Great Idea...

I have been thinking about the best way to implement push notification. Probably tying it to the users Favorite Rivers list and sending a notification when a river in the list reaches a certain threshold...bottom line I like the idea and will see what I can do.

Also we are constantly getting feedback from RiverGuide users on the min/max thresholds for river sections and tweek the setting in our server database accordingly. So if there's a river section your intimate with, have input to the min/max levels, then send me an email (RiverGuideAdmin at me dot com) and I'll see what we can do.

As for the river section names, I have also tweeked these based on RiverGuide user input for the betterment of everyone, so again if you have input as to what would be a better name for a given section, fire off an email.

Regards...
