What’s Coming Up Next? – Tom Bluewater Introducing Ride Watch for iOS

iOS Swift iPhone app Ride Watch






TOKYO (Tom Bluewater) – It rains quite a bit in September. We hardly see the sun this month. Anyway, I have one iOS app to introduce before this month ends. A new iOS app that I submitted to App Store a few minutes ago is called Ride Watch.

When you take a cab ride, you never know that the driver will take the shortest route. Who knows where a stranger will take you if you fall into sleep after a long night of parting? Ride Watch lets you monitor your ride, recording GPS positions. With an in-app purchase, Ride Watch will send you a local notification when your ride deviates from an expected route. The app will even let you simulate your ride in the past.
