Rip = R.I.P.

This application is fantastic! I highly recommend it... The only thing I would suggest is to add a section detailing how to read and understand our beaches rips... Unfortunately many people die on the un-patrolled beaches every year as not everyone has skills to see deadly rips... It really would be a useful and I strongly believe necessary add on to this application that could very well save lives... Even if it only saved one life this promising summer it would be worth the time implementing it into this already great app.

Great for local information

I have only discovered this app and we live very close to beaches. I always worry about getting in the water when our beaches are not patrolled. This app helps me with looking for patrolled beaches and times they will be patrolled. It also teaches me the signs of currents and other useful information.
It is a very informative app that every Australia should have on their phone.
Thank you and I hope it can be promoted for more Australians and overseas visitors

Amazing but one problem

It is such a good app for beach goers but the only problem is, is that when you try to login it doesn't have a button to let you in so you can enter your details but nothing will enter it. Great app otherwise
