Hey all, I hope y'all don't mind me posting here since it's free, but I have developed an app for Lake Martin. I got some coding help with it but have been working on it for several months. It has a real estate search on it, but also direct links to lake area restaurants (on and off water), shops, events, weather, water level, and other fun things to do (worship, hike, bike, etc). It was born partly out of a desire to have one good spot to tell visitors about so they know what's going on.

Here are the links if you are so inclined: Apple App Store

and also: Google / Android link

for an explanation page on my blog please see: Lake Martin Voice App

I discovered in this process that it's kind of like building a house - if you have the time and money, you can do just about anything. I had a real challenge to balance giving useful information, versus information overload. It won't have everything, but hopefully it has enough to be useful and intuitive.

Example - the weather - I really wanted a localized radar on there. I am a radar guy. But 1.) it's super expensive and 2.) the radar feed that I found that I could get would not be as good radar as on other apps. It would look crappy. Therefore I opted for the basics - overall weather for the week, and what's happening now, plus 3 hours future and 6 hours future. My thoughts were - if I am going on a boat ride, what will it be like in 6 hours?

Anyway, I hope it's helpful to visitors, lake veterans, and local businesses. Any suggestions for improvement please let me know. I am new at this!
