The traditional "dhow" sailing vessel is one of the most unique and memorable sights of the city of Dubai, and now this age-old transportation and trading vehicle is set to be given a boost with the introduction of a specialized dhow-promoting trading app.

The 'Dhowber' app is part of a special initiative, launched by Dubai authorities, to promote seafaring trade in the region. This app makes it possible for sailors, as well as traders, to track cargo shipments right on their smartphone, and they can even use the app to register for shipments and search the database for pertinent information.

This trading app also empowers traders and dhow captains to communicate more seamlessly, making it a great example of modern technology being used to boost an ancient and still thriving mode of trade.
