- June 2015: The current version of Swim Guide, 2.21, contains fixes for Lollipop users. In April Lollipop users reported difficulty downloading or using the app on Nexus devices with the March 2015 Android 5.1 Lollipop update. Thanks to everyone who reported the problem.
Update contains fixes for Lollipop users. Enjoy!
The Swim Guide part of our Travel & Local and have average installs from 10000 to 50000. Last Update June 15, 2015. Google play rating is 80.3846. Current verison is 2.21. Actual size 9.3 MB.
LG G3 w/Lolli Haven't been able to use the app yet. I know you all are working on the Lollipop update issue, so I'll wait and see what happens.
There has been an error contacting the swim guide servers. Press OK to try again, did so and nothing went.
Won't work on Galaxy s5 App Can't connect to the server
Doesnt find Location Didnt refresh to my location even when my gps was on.
Top app Any way you could let us know when the last test was done. Maybe just peace of mind but would be nice. Excellent app though
Up to date excellent resourse for any beach comber.
Nice app, but... I was so disappointed to see absolutely no North Carolinian beaches listed or mapped. As well visited as they are by people all over the eastern United States, I expected to see at least a few. Myrtle Beach, SC isn't even on here, and it is remarkably popular!
Nice clean app... Needs to add more public beaches, including those with no water testing.
Love this app! Great app. Makes planning family trips to the beach easy. Especially for someone like me who gets lost easily. This app leads me straight to the beach! Thank you Waterkeepers. Keep up the good work!
PERFECT! Great app, easy to navigate through!
Very pretty app, but can be misleading I've noticed discrepancies between state run databases in the US and swim guide concerning beach advisories even though the icon on swim guide says "Current Status", which implies an almost real-time link. Not sure the app is as "real-time" as the developer makes it seem. Not sure i'm comfortable with swimguide also coming up with their own assessment of the swimming status. Great for beach discovery, but I would be cautious of their water quality claims and always call the local beach or consult other sources for up to date information.
Awesome App Memorial Day on a clean California beach! It doesn't get any better!
Access points! Wow, I love this app! I can find boat landings on all the rivers around me!
Great App! Fabulous App! Disappointing that Clearwater Beach is not listed.
Love this app!
LG G3 w/Lolli Haven't been able to use the app yet. I know you all are working on the Lollipop update issue, so I'll wait and see what happens. UPDATE: Reinstalled it 6/20/15 Looks great! Thanks for the update.
Amazing info for beach bums Thank you it is extremekt accurate and thorough
Won't setup as app can't contact your servers. Can't connect to server
Great app, Lollipop issue sucks. It's a shame the Lollipop issue is still an issue when we're just at the beginning of swim season! Hopefully it'll get worked out soon... If not for that, I'd have given it five stars. My family uses it a lot!
No freshwater beaches Did not realize there were only ocean beaches listed. I live in NH. We have like 9 miles of coastline. I know where those beaches are! Not a single freshwater beach listed in NH.
Good and informative Just used it, showed me so many beaches around my city.... Can't decide! Great work. Ideally, it'll be best if we could get a few user pics of how some these look like...
Easy to use
Nothing for Missouri?
Hated it How can it say that the water is green (safe) and then have a red (unsafe) logo right next tot eh green one? So close together the logos overlapped.
