For those of you who did not know: BeachWatch is a free mobile phone application from iSee Software Solutions, that ensures the perfect wave is only a click away, bringing the best breaks directly to users’ mobile handsets in real time. Watersports enthusiasts can monitor surf conditions on-the-go, utilising BeachWatch’s high-quality, live video streams for beaches throughout the Cape Peninsula. The application offers strategically placed camera feeds at all of the city’s top surfing hotspots, providing custom views of well-known wave breaks from Melkbosstrand to Kommetjie.
Great news for the watersports community has rolled to shore with web and iPhone browsing now available to all users of BeachWatch’s mobile application service. Based on numerous user requests, BeachWatch’s developers have extended the service offering to those looking to access live-streaming videos of Cape Town’s hottest beaches via desktop internet or iPhone.
Whilst still in its BETA phase, this comes as a welcome development for the local watersports community, who now have access to a wider range of touchpoints. iPhone users can now browse the live-streaming videos through visiting http://www.beachwatch.mobi.
