    "How is the visibility?" is one of the most asked questions once you walk into a dive resort. So I thought let's do something with that.

    I made an Android application that keeps track of your GPS location and compares it to a list of dive sites. Once you're at a dive site, you can enter the conditions like visibility, currents, waves and temperature. Once back withing internet range, this data is uploaded.
    At the same time, the app downloads all dive site conditions reported by other divers and shows them on screen.

    So far it works pretty well, but I need some people to test the app, to see if it works on different android phones.

    Anyone diving regularly in Thailand willing to test for me?
    If yes, I'll give you the app and details.

    (At this moment, I've only put the 100 best known dive sites in the list, so that's why it's restricted to Thailand.)
