Help People Keep Safe at Sea

Adam Hyde is a volunteer member of Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue (RCM-SAR), a non-profit organisation providing marine search and rescue off the coasts of British Columbia, Canada. He had the idea for an App that would help distressed amateur sailors to know what to do in most emergency situations. He didn't have any programming experience and couldn't afford to get somebody else to write the App.

He couldn't realise his dream until he came across LiveCode. I'll let Adam tell the rest of the story:

"The App was approved first time by Apple thanks to LiveCode. Even more amazing was that I essentially had a working first version in less than two months, working part-time with no prior programming experience. I spent the next three months dealing with legal and content issues which held up the release. During that time I just kept improving things."

"We truly believe that our App will help save lives.  All the information is there for a distressed boater to know what to do in most emergency situations and have that information right on the phone they have in their pocket."

Take a look at Adam's App.
