Are You Sharking Kidding Me?

After sitting here for five straight minutes attempting to come up with an intro for this post, I decided to just shout it out --

There is an app where you can track the movement of sharks.

You heard me right.

Who: Ocearch Global Shark Tracker
What: An app that allows you to observe the navigational pattern of sharks that have been tagged with satellite tracking technology.
Where: Hopefully on your phone!
When: NOW.
Why: Goes without saying, but in case you're slow at reading, this is a SHARK TRACKER.
How: Skeedaddle on over to your App Store and download it. It's freeeeeeeeee!!!

Allow me to go into detail. You can look at a map with dots of where the sharks were the last time they "pinged."

Watch out New York.

Or you can go to the "Sharks" section and read the details on who will most likely become your new favorite shark! Perhaps your guy is Bonac, a 9'8'', 216 lb. Blue Shark, who last pinged 4 hours and 6 minutes ago. Or maybe you're more of a Yolanda person, a 12'7'' Tiger Shark who last pinged 1 hour and 29 minutes ago.



I put it under the "Entertainment" category on my iPhone, but I'm thinking the more appropriate place is in "Utilities" alongside my reminders app, the Google app, and other things that I absolutely can't make it through my day without.
