Default iPhone Snowboarding App

Hey all,

Just a quick bit of information for you all. I decided to learn how to code for a bit of fun and collaborating with the guys over at Head Snowboards and some European riders, I made a snowboarding iPhone app.

The blurb about the app is below, which I think (hope) sums it up quite nicely. Also, so you know, it got added to the homepage of UK iTunes, as a staff favorites pick, which is was surprised and totally stoked about.

"In huge detail, we lay out how to stomp over 50 of the sickest snowboard tricks out there, including respect ratings, illustrations and expert tips. The app also includes essential information such as board maintenance, snowboard terminology, mounting bindings, waxing, and choosing your ride!

In addition, we bring you our infamous ''grab indicator'', now in pocket-sized format and ready to take to the mountain with you. The indicator shows how and where to grab your board, so you can dial in on those essential grabs and move your riding up a few notches."

There are a bunch of other features too. I would really love to hear your feedback on the app, so I can continue to make it better!!

You can find it in iTunes at Snowboard Trick List for iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation) and iPad on the iTunes App Store

Here are some free download codes for the first 3 of you to get the app:
PRE6XWEM74LM
XKK6EHXKXFNM
6L4XHE6TXEXJ


To redeem, to the appstore, click featured and then new and scroll to the bottom and click redeem.

Thanks very much in advance for any ideas, feedback or suggestions you have.

Cheers

Sam

My feedback/suggestion is that you need to make an Android version. iPhone is not the only phone people own.

I agree completely... Android is an excellent platform and also a growing one. I would love to do an Android version, and I won't rule it out. But currently I learned to code for iOS just as a hobby/project, although it rapidly became something more serious, it is just a hobby and due to my love of snowboarding. For full disclosure, I am a finance student, not a techy!

Sorry to deny your platform for now, my apologies!

No need to apologize. It's not you. I just can't believe how many people only make stuff for the iPhone, even though Android is just as popular and fairly easy to make things for. I'm no techy either, but I know that Android is a great platform and deserves to not be overlooked so much. Anyway, I'd check out your app, as it sounds pretty neat, but I have no iPhone, and never will.

the answer is super simple. to develop for iPhone is as simple as developing one app. Android is horribly fragmented and getting worse, and that results in the need for many versions of the app, just within the Android ecosystem. the fact that it's "open" results in many versions for different phones and manufacturers since manufacturers are convinced they can "improve" the OS with some crap skin over the top. i am also no techie (maybe a little), but any developer will tell you the same. and before the flame wars begin, i harbor no ill will toward any platform. i have used Android and been impressed, even if it is not my personal choice.

Excellent to hear your thoughts on the different platforms guys - but any App specific feedback you can offer would be greatly appreciated. I am trying to make this App as great as it can be, so as fellow snowboarders, your thoughts are hugely important to me!
Thanks again

I'm not so sure I get the value in the app at the moment, seems like it's more aimed for the guys in the park? Something I'd like would be a resort app, with access to stats for all resorts, snowfall, trail maps, webcams, etc.

Yeah I would say that is fair feedback and I agree, although there are some things in the app that are for everybody, surface tricks, how to wax, how to choose a board, how to mount bindings, music, wallpapers and discounts at sports retailers... but the rest is trick information...

A lot of the resort maps etc exist already within Skiing apps, but I can definitely see the point of it, and it may well feature in later releases, it isn't a priority currently for this App (unless everyone starts asking for it)

For example, I plan to add an Altimeter and Speedometer to near future releases.

Thank you for the feedback.

Hey all,

I submitted a new, improved version of the App to Apple and am working on a huge update.

The new version will have 15 more tricks, more features etc. For now though, i'd still really love your opinion for possible new features, improvements etc. I want to have a fantastic and useful App.

Thank you in advance guys/girls.

Sam
