Great App!!!

I have been looking for a user friendly application and stumbled upon this one. Not only is it user friend but the design is beautiful. I monitor river levels at work and this application has all of them. A bonus is that you can enable push notifications based on min/max flows at specific gage stations. I have contacted the developer about adding additional stations and received immediate response even on a weekend his is a five star application for sure.

Thanks for the great effort and an application that solves a number of problems for me.

This app is awesome! I think having a feature where you can save notes on specific rivers would be cool. That way someone can document what time of year and what CFS they ran a certain river and section, and can reference that saved note for following years. This would be great for planning in the future. Knowing what CFS was good for your trip and skill levels and what CFS you’d never want to run again. I use this app all the time and I love it! Thanks

The Information is ok, but .....

Editing this review.... the developer worked with me and updated the app and now it works perfectly.... changing review from 1 star to 5!

I purchased this app after I upgraded my phone and my previous river level app was no longer available.
I PURCHASED the app which won’t acknowledge that I did purchase it and won’t allow me to use more than the free app features. When I click restore purchase, nothing happens.

Developer Response ,

Hello, I would love to solve your issue. Can you contact me: florian@riverapp.net ? Cheers, Florian
