I wrote a completely free (no ads/tracking either) application for Android devices that lets you check Water Levels of any water meter in Canada. I'm a software developer in Fredericton and wanted to brush up on my Android application skills and found the Environment Canada website a little frustrating to use from my phone. The application uses their data but (hopefully) makes it a little easier to access on your Android device.
To use it, launch the application and hit the search button in the top-right and type in a river/meter name (e.g. saint john, miramichi). You'll get some results, tap on one to view details and a graph of the recent levels. The launch screen shows the 3 most recent meters you've looked at.
If this is the wrong place to mention it, feel free to delete the thread. I'd like to eventually work on a premium version/add-on that would add a map-view showing the current status of rivers based on trip reports and what people report as good levels to run them at.
