iKoast is the next generation in coastal notifications app in Australia. iKoast’s map based app allows users to join a community and to notify each other of all kinds of events at the coast. Using a pin & map interface, users can mark the map with things like shark sightings or riptides so that other iKoast users will be aware of the danger. To accomplish this, the app makes heavy use of GPS geolocation and real-time connectivity.
iKoast launched first on iPhone, and later on Android as a second phase release in order to ensure good coverage for its primary target audience in Australia. Designed and developed for an entrepreneur in Australia, iKoast is, at it’s core, a community driven alert app for coastal communities.
