Every summer, whenever it gets really warm, thousands of people go to rivers in Amsterdam to take a little swim. Official spots are too scarce, and people don’t limit themselves to those. They dive in many places that are known by only a few but should be shared with everyone. 

The Free Bather is an app that allows people to find and share spots to swim in the rivers of Amsterdam.

As the main goal of the app is to visualize bathing spots across the city, the map is the central point of the user experience.

Users can enrich the app by adding spots themselves. A long tap anywhere on the map will bring a new spot card up. The next step is to click on the appropriate badges to give information about the spot. After verification by the team, the spot will get the "verified" badge.
