Ski Tracks - iPhone app that is EPIC

Ok, so This app is absolutely amazing. My friend out in Breck has been looking for something that could track his speed and he came across this app for his iPhone called 'Ski Tracks'. It tracks everything from vert ft, speed, distance traversed, EVERYTHING!! The most awesome part is that it can be uploaded into google earth. Check out the movie below.

Check out the link, its a full review of it. So far I tracked myself at just under 45mph, and my friends who told me about the app is tracked at just under 67 mph

Dunno if that is free or not, but My Tracks from Google is, which I use with great ease and success.

Its $1, and def worth the ability to listen to your iPod, able to analyze each run individually and to take pics with geo-tags to where on the mountain they were taken.

I'm not sure the features on 'My Tracks' but this app is designed by Core Coders Ltd who specifically design apps like this. I was reading a review a few weeks back and found they this app took years to create and make accurate since the grade of the slope is given to improve accuracy of sleep and location.

The app is definitely a lot of fun to play with and there is plenty of data to get out of it. I like how many runs you make as well as the mileage and what not. I question the speed at times though. I have it as well as a couple of friends and we have been flying down black runs that say we are going slower than when we are on green runs. We question whether or not it is taking into account the degree on the hill as well as the horizontal distance you are covering. Either way, we have plenty of fun with it.

Check out the Rossignol app too. It's free and good as well.
