We thought it was brilliant. It very simply answers the question – “is it safe to drink the water?” for over 200 countries. A very handy reference tool for travelers .
We were also impressed that he’s donating 51% of any proceeds off of the website (which is ad & affiliate supported) to charity:water.
We also thought his database structure would be a good fit for our existing State Lines infrastructure. Just instead of states, it would be countries. So we reached out to Andy to offer to make an iPhone app version. And he agreed.
We are pleased to announce, it is available in the App Store! And just like the web version – 51% of the profits will be donated to charity:water.
Can I Drink the Water? – iPhone App
Water-borne illness is one of the most common causes of sickness while on the road.
We’ve partnered with Andy Hayes – that travel guy. He and his team compiled information on water safety from official government resources, travel reports, and other documentation available to ensure that we can provide you with the information you need to travel safe and worry-free.
That information is available for free at the Can I Drink the Water website. And now you can take it with you on your iPhone or iPod Touch!
Of course, you should confirm with your travel agent or tour operator if you’re going far off the beaten path – Andy’s travel safety tips can make sure you take the right precautions, and of course, look at the country profiles before you go.
Also, it is always a good idea to have travel insurance on any trip – better safe than sorry!
Available for iPhone for just $1.99
71 cents of every copy sold will be donated to charity:water
