Support Skift’s Independent Journalism

Did you know? Skift has newsrooms in New York and London and full-time editors in Singapore, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, too.

A newly released app called the Swim Guide directs users to the closest and cleanest beaches. Water quality data is sourced from government agencies to provide user information on the water cleanliness for more than 300 California beaches.

Created by the Waterkeeper Alliance, a network of 200 water protection groups around the globe, the app is available for iOS and Android devices.
