Can't find splocs for iphone in app-store. Searching for splocs doesn't give a result.

I don't get it, tried to use is in Brazil. Basically, it lists every single frikkin beach that anyone's ever used. Useless without some kind of ratings order or top 10 for each country/region.

Add a rating system and you've got yourself the perfect app as opposed to a useless one

Top 10 is on www.splocs.com if you go to a country or region...

If people pay for such an add or donate money, more is possible.
This one is for free and I cannot do more at this time.

But...we are planning on making splocs huge...then the app will be different and for sure have a rating system.

Until then...you can see what is close to you. And the more you search, the better spots you will find!

Or just look up the website ;-)

Hi Toby,

On the SPLOCS website I put Killalagh Lagoon on at 54N 9W but the correct location is 54 13' N, 9 13' W. There doesn't seem to be a way to edit the longitude and latitude. Can it be fixed?

EDIT: Thanks Toby
