Pretty nice app, thanks for the link!
I was sure it was going to prompt me to purchase another module to gain access, but everything came up fine in my quick demo.

Looks like all the old "kitebeaches" info has been ported into this, so I guess Toby is involved somehow or else was able to sell the database. ?

Sorry to contracdict, but I find this app pretty useless. It just gives names of spots and no other information as you may think before clicking on the "info" button.
After I tried with some spots on France, without any information, I decided to try with the most popular of all, kite beach on Maui. Guess the result: an immaculate blank page... Out of my phone.
You'd rather use Windguru. You'll get much more info after few clicks on it IMHO.

ALL location have info, there must be a problem. Restart the app and you should see all.

Info and new locations you can submit on the website www.splocs.com only.

Got to the location and click to the left on "Edit Location" to change the info, or click on "Add Location" for a new location!

Soon the app will have a picture upload tool and a toll to add new locations!
