RiverFlows Widget




    Keep even closer tabs on the current fishing, canoing, kayaking, and rafting conditions on your favorite rivers with this RiverFlows app add-on.

    The RiverFlows Widget displays your top 5 favorite USGS, NOAA, US Army Corps of Engineers, California Data Exchange Center or Colorado Department of Water Resources gauge sites right on your phone's home screen. Updated hydrological data is downloaded every hour.

    The Riverflows app and widget are now open source!:

    Notes (IMPORTANT)

    The RiverFlows Widget won't do anything unless RiverFlows app 1.0 or later is installed and favorite sites are selected beforehand. See

    THE WIDGET WON'T APPEAR ON YOUR PHONE'S HOME SCREEN UNTIL YOU PLACE IT THERE USING THE WIDGETS MENU. The procedure for doing this varies slightly by device manufacturer and Android OS version, but there are some basic instructions here:
    For older (pre- Android 3.0) devices, use these instructions:

    The RiverFlows Widget will result in slightly decreased battery life and slightly increased data usage when active. In my experience, these effects are barely noticeable.

    I like the widget, looks good and makes it very easy to see the flows. But come on, you need to be able to show more than 5.

    I use the widget on my phone to follow levels on favorite runs. Would also guess it is also good for fisherman.

    Would be nice to set as many rivers (stations) as I want. Would also be nice to be able to sort r/s by name, location, favorite, etc
