A valuable app

This app is a valuable informational tool for those of us who live here and boat the Sounds regularly. For the seasonal and occasional visitors it should be a must-have. I'd like to make a couple improvement suggestions:
First, Add some live camera views for the Kenepuru and Pelorus Sounds. This would make this a 5 star app for me.
Second, provide more url links to local Sounds businesses important to Sounds boaters - Oddies, Bow to Stern, the boatable restaurant locations, etc.
many thanks. Hoping this app is maintained, enhanced, and kept up to date.
