INCOIS has deployed more than 400 Argo floats till now and soon reaching a special milestone of 500 Indian Argo floats. In this context there is a necessity to have a unique application by which scientists can effectively and efficiently track all the information of these floats and also monitor the active floats among them regularly. The present work describes about an Android application or app which eases the work of researchers to track the information of these Argo floats as well as monitor them regularly. This app is designed and developed to give all the information related to Argo floats like its various types, its deployed positions, its current positions, its functionality, search option, etc., in the form of maps and charts in turn uses real time data to give latest status of Argo floats. In addition to it, this app is also useful in advising the scientists involved in Argo program about the floats in danger of getting grounded or beached that need immediate attention. This app is a very useful tool for the scientists to check the current status of Argo floats from anywhere or anytime using a smart phone.
