New App: WaterSpotr - Where are your buddies sailing today

US Windsurfing just put out a new app with launch sites and instant connectivity - and of course Facebook integration.  They used some of the site from the map that Dave Dalquist put together, but they still need to add many more Michigan sites.  It's available for iPhone and Android, so check it out.
