DropDrop App helps with measuring water use

The DropDrop App is developed by researchers at the iCOMMS group, University of Cape Town, previously featured on UCT Daily News.

Drop Drop is a stand-alone mobile application that runs on Android smart phones and was developed for individuals to track their water consumption. It allows users to access information on their daily water usage, predicted end-month water bill, water conservation methods, their municipal contacts, and information about the water system. Read more about the research behind the app on the iCOMMS website.

The iCOMMS Team is dedicated to developing context-relevant tools that will help governments and decision-makers to collect the information they require in order to deliver better services and to monitor policy implementations. Projects range in diversity from the facilitation of support for rural communities and monitoring water quality to developing open source software and mobile technologies in Africa and Asia.
