Database needs work!!!
Hellooo? Is the developer reading this? There are LOTS of missing taps, User submitted ones are not added (In Nov 2012 I submitted a dozen taps in my local area and none of them have been updated - including some that are just up the street from the YVW head office in Mitcham!!)
Also the app only works with an Internet connection so no use for iPod touch users. Please cache like "show the loo"
Only YVW taps appear on the map!
No good if you want to know where all taps are in the area as you can only see YVW taps on the map. When you hit 'List' you can see all the user entered ones, but the same tap can be listed 20 times, and you have no idea where it is unless you choose to 'get directions'. As a person who plans who plans walks and runs around the location and availability of drinking water, this app doesn't do the job.
Keeps getting better
I've had this app since it launched. It only gets better as the areas covered increase.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
