It helps you discover and mark closed beaches around the globe. One can also stay updated with the weather, tides and swells report of any place at any point of time.

The objective of the APP was to make people aware of accidents and possible dangers due to sharks and other wild-lives. It was essential to track all sightings, attacks and beach restrictions all over the world, along with accurate weather and tides-swell forecasts; and also enable users to reach the correct authority nearby at the time of emergency.
