Prague, Czech Republic – BIOPORT Software Labs, a mobile application development company, today is thrilled to announce the release of an updated version of Swim Places, summer’s must have application. Swim Places is a non-commercial community app which provides users with the option to add swim places they love and discover new places that they haven’t visited yet. As of now it has been downloaded by over 20.000 Android and iOS users and many others use the web application. Swim Places has received top rating mark in a prestigious competition Internet Effectiveness Award.

Swim Places is a community driven project which maps the best swimming places around the globe. The project mostly focuses on outdoor swimming location such as lakes, rivers, ponds, beaches, coves and quarries. For the regular swimmer the authors also included standard swimming facilities – such as pools and waterparks. However, the main focus is on natural outdoor swim places. The goal is to gather and display people’s tips, comments and ratings and let them create the content of the app.

The benefits of the app are quite straightforward. It shows you specific swim places for your desired location. It lets you filter the search based on the category such as lake, river, quarry , outdoor pool and more. The app allows you to add a new location, where you provide some basic details about the given location and upload a photo of the place. One can also add more details such as: Entry fees, availability of refreshments, whether its god for diving or if it is nudist friendly.

Bioport expert developer Vladislav Skoumal explains why one should download and use this app: “If you are looking for a refreshing dip, where you don’t have to worry about crowds, goggles, chlorine and sometimes even bathing suits, then SwimPlaces is a must-have app for you. With this app you don’t need to have the local knowledge as others provide it for you via their tips and comments.”

The target group of this app are wild swimming enthusiasts, people who travel and just about anyone who likes swimming. “Our goal is to get as many users, preferably active users, who will contribute with new swim places and eventually cover the map with great swimming locations”, says COEX webdesigner Ivos Gajdorus, who came up with the original idea for this project and his company designed the web application for Swim Places.
