1. Droid
2. Yes
3. Yes
4. 27
5. Yes, met up
6. No
7. Ads, possibility of upgrading to free minus ads. (Easier to get a following faster)
8. Ease of use, no lagging, possible self loaded pictures, self rating, and history of past riding spots/ favorite locations. Maybe make it a bit like lyft, where you can review each other, and see previous riders reviews/ previously reviewed.
9. If free I would use upgrading if I felt it was worth it, but i won't purchase without a trusted recommendation from a friend, and great reviews/ previous use.

Scroll back, everyone is just answering market research questions on an App I'm working on. Otherwise it's business as usual complaining about the weather, traffic, and where to score good deals.

Thanks to everyone that is answering these questions.

Tourist point of view:
1: Android
2: Y
3: N
4: 36
5: Y/N
6: Y/ N
7-9: As tourist, I’d be interested in such an app, but more in the “meet” than the “couch” part. A free trial version for limited time or limited interactions wouldn’t work for a tourist who’s there only one week. I rather see a free “look and feel” trial version where you have unlimited access in time, but can’t contact anyone without the full version.

Yes, I’d pay some bucks for a good app… but if >1 apps exist for a similar purpose, I’d get the free trial version. Whether I then buy the full version depends on how nice the first appearance was. You know about the short attention span… first impression and usability at first glace are key. Say, there’s app A which would have great content, but no filter function and a cumbersome design, and app B with invitingly design, good filter functions but shitty content... It needs some time to detect that B may be nice to look at but is actually shit. But by then, I may have already bought it, cause initially it looked fine, while I may never will discover the good content of A cos I won’t even have a closer look at it.

- Absolutely don’t use white script on black background. It makes one’s eyes bleed… and outdoors, on a bright day, it’s non readable, even on the huge screen of a Samsung Notes (I can’t read the Ski Tracks app on a bluebird day).
- Easy to use filter function. Variables as location, riding preferences, age range, … should be given with radio button/check box to enable to filter for them. Free text is nice to have a closer look at someone, but initially it’s important to filter for “candidates”.

no video no shirt no service

1: Droid (fuck iEverything)

2: not really

3: no

4: 38 (yea i realize this pretty much disqualifies the whole entry, you're baffled I know what an app is)

5: Yes, both.

6: no

7: never paid for an app never will, have many, pretty sure there are a ton of ads on em.

8: trust. I've met a couple cool people on the forums but there are some I'd rather have not wasted the time and energy. I'm kind of a hater though.

9: see 7

No

Yes/mtn
Never happened but I would couch share(I have a couch to share and live at the resort)
I would take the free option with adds, no fee.
I would want to see someone's FB profile before opening up my couch to them or sleeping on their couch. I'd rather sleep in my truck than in a frat house....

I like how they complain about #6, then complain about #8. If you can't breathe, why are you in the backcountry in the 1st place?

#7: and you would prefer boards made in China (who ignores all patents, by the way) ?

#18: blame the marketers, many of them probably don't even live here

Others: there is a lot of truth to them...

Purpose of the app: This is a meet up (not ride share as CO law fucks you with that currently) to go snowboard/ski. Currently we're toying with either subscription based or advertising based. For the subscription model you are allowed 2 (tentative number) of interactions a month to connect with someone to meet up. The other side of the app is a couch share opportunity. So for those that know the ride back and forth from Denver sucks finding a couch to crash on for either beer, weed, cash, dinner, etc. etc. The user that is looking for a meet up/couch share can then rate the person after their experience. It will have ratings for various criteria.

What I need to know from you guys:

1: iPhone or Droid?
Droid

2: Do you actively look to meet up with people to snowboard with?
I normally ride solo, but if I could easily find people that don't suck to ride with I'd be all about it

3: Would you couch surf on a random persons couch?
No

4: Age
27

5: Have you ever previously met up with someone from the Internet to ride with them? Did you carpool or meet at the mountain?
Yes, met on the mountain. I don't trust people and wouldn't want to potentially get stranded by relying on a stranger to drive. However, after I've ridden with someone and get to know them I'd be cool to carpool

6: Have you ever been trapped at the resorts due to road closures and had to sleep in your car or get a hotel room? Would a couch share have been a better solution?
I haven't, but if I did I'd probably just get a hotel. I could see couch sharing being great for people who are cool with it though.

7: Do you prefer subscription base costing $.99 a month or $5.99 a year be too much? Or would you prefer targeted in app ads?
in app ads

8: What would you look for in an app like this if you would use it?
Alerts based on your GPS location would be pretty cool. For instance if I was riding Breck and it told me how many people were in the area and their skill levels. A built in messager would be pretty handy to be able to message those riders of similar skill levels in the area to meet up for a run and go from there.

9: Would you use this app if you had to pay for it initially or would you prefer a free version?
I think everyone will prefer a free app. My advice (if it has to be a pay app) is have a trial period where it's free so people can check it out and see if they like it. After there's a decent number of people using it you could change it over to a pay app.

Thanks guys, I await the comical responses as well as the serious ones.
Done. Good luck with the app. Keep us posted on when it's ready, I'd love to try it out. Especially if it has the feature I mentioned where we could see who's riding in the area at any given time.
