You can now get updates on flash floods in Singapore via an app on the iPhone.
PUB has launched MyWaters, a free iPhone application to provide users with up to date water issues and information.
Users can check water level information in key drain and canals, as well as road conditions at selected areas via CCTV images during rainstorms.
The new app also allows users to subscribe to iPhone push notifications from multiple water level sensors across the island.
Subscribers can also search for such information via their current location, postal code or street name and be informed through SMS alerts or iPhone iAlerts.
Users can also learn about Singapore’s water story and embark on a self-guided “eTour” at Marina Barrage, as well as to ‘share’ and upload own photos of Singapore’s scenic waterscapes.
The free application is downloadable in any country where an iTunes store is available. The application is also compatible with the iPhone and iPad and will be available on other mobile platforms by the end 2012.
Singaporean director Anthony Chen described as “surreal” the 15-minute standing ovation that followed the world premiere of his debut feature film "Ilo Ilo" at the Cannes Film Festival on Sunday. Though the ending of the premiere couldn’t have been more perfect, the 29-year-old Chen said the beginning was quite “nerve-wrecking” as it was marred by technical glitches.
