Beach information is included, as well as videos, blogs, Facebook and Twitter.
A chat area is also included so you can add pictures and talk about what is happening.
Updates and improvements, fixed potential Facebook bug for some devices.
Ratings and Reviews
I was really hoping for some visuals here. A map showing the extent of the spill, areas of known landfall, and some predictive map overlays. Maybe an overlay with weather/sea conditions, too. Map on the home page is small and kinda lame. Also need to be able to turn your iPhone horizontal to read easier. Hate when programs don't support that. Add these and would make it five star for me.
App has tons of info, and frequent updates
This is a great app: it has up to the minute news, and info. It keeps track of what I've already read, and has a pretty active chat room too.
This is a great app to keep up on this tragedy. I use it every day. The tar reporting feature is a wonderful public service, but I hope I never have to use it.
