Prior to the release of the Snowy Live app, people could access information through Snowy Hydro’s website, however the app makes this information conveniently available to tourists holidaying in the region and to farmers planning their agricultural activities.
The app integrates real time data from Snowy Hydro into the app, meaning there is no need to re-release the app whenever changes occur. It is an immediate, cost-effective solution for people visiting or living in this region. Snowy Live was built using HTML5 technology. This means the app is built using web technologies and then compiled into native apps for Android and iOS. Using this approach, we only had to write the code once, which is both quicker and cheaper than natively coding separate apps for Android and iOS.
