Hey all,

Sorry to double post! Those download codes were snapped up almost immediately, but we didn't get any feedback from them (normally we get great feedback from this forum).

Since the season is upon us, it is crucial we have the App in the best condition it can be in. So did anyone have any feedback for us?

9NYNF6X3YF6P - Here is another free download code to encourage you.

Hope you are having a good run up to the season, hope to hear from you.

Sam

I downloaded the app using one of the codes you provided. I've been enjoying it and have learned some tricks through the app. Thanks for that.

In general, I think you could work on unifying the look and function of the app.

For example:

-Sometimes the "BACK" button is on the top, sometimes it's on the bottom.

-The "Music & Extras" section uses a fluid scrolling interface, while the other sections use a more clunky interface based on multiple pages that you have to click through. I would adopt the scrolling interface for all sections of the app.

-When you tap the "Surface Tricks" and "Air Tricks" menu, there's a slightly annoying vibration that happens. This doesn't happen when you click on the "Rail Tricks" or "Grab Guide."

-Some of the videos' aspect ratio is off. For example, in the Nollie 360 video, you can't read the bottom part of the instructional text.

Having an easy to use navigational standard goes a long way in making it feel like a quality, professional app. Aside from those kinds of things, I think you could invest in making higher quality videos with moving images and narration.

Hope all that helps.

I downloaded the app to take a look. While it's a great idea, there are a couple of issues that need fixing:

*Many resorts do not have phone/internet services on many parts of the mountain, so riders will have no way of loading the youtube videos of the tricks that the app links to while they are actually there.

*On the topic of the yt videos, you need new ones that are more clear. See "Jumping With Jussi" to get an idea of what a good trick tutorial video looks like.

Still, good work with the app so far.

Hey guys,

Thanks for the great feedback. Glad it has helped you learn a few new things, that is really what we are all about! A few points:

1) Let me confess, I didn't realize about that vibrate thing. I will remove that immediately. That is pretty annoying. (I disable vibrate on all my devices, hence not realizing, and no one ever mentioned it before!).. Thanks for a great spot.

2) The Nollie 3 video I will update as soon as I am next home (all my videos are on a HDD that isn't at my current location). That is a strange issue. I plan to update and add new videos this season, time dependent. I agree the videos could be a little more comprehensive in areas so we will work on that!

3) I updated the app the other day with a few more pro tips that were passed to me, some new music and more. So look forward to that in about 7 days time. The vibrate issue will be dealt with in the update after next.


Finally, let me make you guys aware of our new website where we list some of our favourite snowboard music and videos, which you may enjoy:

Indefatigable Media House

Thanks again for great feedback all, we cannot thank you enough.

Keep shredding!
Sam

Good news guys/girls... for all those who have been asking (and it's been a lot of you), we finally got round to making the Android version of this app.

Work is due to start next week, and it will be exactly the same as the iPhone app, with a couple of cool new features, such as a checklist of all the tricks, where you can store your status with that trick, such as "Stomped", "Working on it", or just "Unattempted"... So you can keep track and share with your friends what tricks you have got dialled in.

Not too sure when it will be out, but we will keep you posted.

Thanks again for all the great feedback on this forum, it has been very useful in guiding the app forward as it develops.

Hi all,

Just to update you:

1) We had a bug in the last version where surface/air tricks caused the phone to crash or vibrate as one user on this forum actually pointed out. This has now been fixed. The app is now seamless!
2) We added a new Rodeo 540 video and a couple of new trick tips.

Thanks for the good bug spot and constructive feedback, especially miles1717. Useful feedback like that has helped us become one of the best rated and most downloaded snowboarding apps out there!

Happy Riding all.

Great idea.

I'd be interested in trying out the Android version once you get a stable copy. I am just starting out in learning how to code apps myself so could even so bug testing for you in the future if you need anyone.

Keep us posted on the Android version!

Thanks for the feedback. Thankfully the iPhone version is stable and working as it always has been (just version 3.9 had a bug in it)... and I expect the Android one to be the same way, as it is a technically simple App to be honest.

I will keep everyone posted here on the progress of the Droid version. Let me know if you are still keen to be involved in the project in a few weeks as I will have something nearly complete by then.

Cheers
Sam

I have a Samsung Galaxy and I've been waiting for the android version to come out. I'll be happy to play-test if you need another.
