Social Media App Launches

Scuttlebutt App

A new social-media platform for boaters called Scuttlebutt allows users to share stories, pictures and videos, as well as interact with others in their feed. The free app includes a map function, with wind and precipitation overlays, that can access real-time weather-buoy information, including sea state, winds, humidity and water temperature.

“As a lifelong boater on the Great Lakes, I am always on the lookout for anything that will help simplify my boating lifestyle,” Scuttlebutt creator Erik Kyle said in a statement. “Whether it’s a fishing expedition, a cruise to a lakeside destination or just a family boat ride on a nice day, boaters need current and vital information to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.”

The company says the app eliminates the use of multiple or redundant mobile tools.

“I was constantly switching between three or more apps to get the information I needed — one for current weather conditions and forecasts, another for wind and wave heights, and another for navigational information,” Kyle said. “We built in all of those features and more, while building a social network to fully address the needs of our diverse, yet close-knit community.”

The Scuttlebutt app is available for the iOS and Android platforms.
