A World to Discover

What this app strives to do is really open your eyes to the world of fabulous and spectacular dive sites so that you can experience them yourself. As mentioned there are different types of dives so that you can pick the ones you are comfortable with or broaden your interests and try something completely different. This app has been put together by Sport Diver magazine, which just so happens to be the official magazine of the PADI Diving Society. For this reason it brings with it respect throughout the diving community.

There is also a brand new interface in this version that comes with new controls. The app currently doesn't have a customer rating or customer comments.

Exploring the Features

Right away when you launch the app you can't help but be struck by the pure beauty of the shots on the main page. It just gives you a taste of the sites you'll be reading about. The main menu has been divided into categories to make finding dive sites easier. Explore sites in Africa, Australasia, the Caribbean, Central and South America, Europe, North America, South and East Asia, The Mediterranean, and the Middle East. This makes it convenient to find locations near you or in places you plan on visiting/vacationing.
