BCP Council leader, Cllr Vikki Slade, said it was a welcome asset to the council.
“We want to make sure everyone who comes to our shores remains as safe as they can be,” she said.
“It is not hard to see why so many people flock to our beaches every year and we have witnessed first-hand just how popular our destinations can be.
“However, we want to ensure those that come here take their own safety and wellbeing seriously and that is the purpose of the development of this app.
“If you arrive you can simply click a few buttons and check to see which beaches have the capacity to accommodate more visitors.”
The app covers Sandbanks, right the way through to Highcliffe beach.
