DoRIS mobile: new App make navigation services available on your Smartphone
The new DoRIS mobile App, released by viadonau offers comprehensive information services for inland navigation in Austria. The app addresses all users of the waterway and everyone interested by providing up-to-date data for water levels, lock status, fairway condition, overview fairway info or shallow sections. DoRIS mobile supports iOS and Android operating systems and is free of charge. Captains and vessel operators can ony benefit from this new App in their daily business which also contributes to safe navigation. A swipe function available for all services gives fast access to data which is updated on regular intervals depending on the service – new water levels are available every 15 minutes or lock status is updated every 5 minutes.
A special focus was put by the App developers on the usability of services. The app which automatically adopts the language of the device - English or German - has a “pull to refresh” function for updating the information with a pull gesture. A roaming warning has also been incorporated to warn the user on possible additional costs.
The app is now available in the Apple iTunes Store and Google Play Store. Detailed information can be found under www.doris.bmvit.gv.at/services/doris_mobile. A free online tutorial is available in the YouTube channel of viadonau under www.youtube.com/ViaDonau.
