    Does most of the time not work. Hard just to start tracking.

    Great idea looked really good however poor get started instructions and I used it once and I can't view the data as my screens it shows for 1 second before going white.

    This is a great app, not awesome though. It's a bit hard to use an I cannot figure out how to look back at individual runs or previous days our trips, a cannot attach photos throughout the day. Skiing is a journey not simply a workout. This app should be about recording your life skiing while in fact, getting a good workout. With that said, it does a good job tracking you workout including GPS route and it does not burn your battery. It's the best ski app I have found.

    The interface flow is confusing, it makes me sign up for an account I don't want, and the tracking regularly quits on you when the phone is locked. I don't want to train to ski. I just want to measure my current performance.

    Awesome app.

    Final Review: patches/fixes fixed stability but accuracy remains an issue. Speed, runs, elevation, and distance are all error prone. For example, today the app said I reached 141mph in 39 ft of elevation change...hmm? March Review: A reinstall does not solve issues. routes are tracked but not distance or speed. Camera app still doesn't work. UPDATED REVIEW: I have a lumia 822 with 'black'. The recent Winter Ski and Ride update solved the stability problem by making it impossible to get tracking to work at all. This app has tremendous potential but the critical feature, tracking, continues to fail. After several restarts of the app and phone I have given up. I switched to a less feature rich but more stable app, I've also lowered my rating. ORIGINAL REVIEW: Full featured and robust but unstable. (((remainder deleted))) There is so much to like about this app (weather, snow report, resort info, training, etc.) but the lack of stability limits its overall usefulness.

    Super app! I thought at the beginning it would only work in the US but it works also in Europe. The data you get is very correct.

    After each run it should tell you stats for that run, not cumulative stats. Other than that, great app. Keep up the great work

    The one time it worked, it was cool. It only worked for two runs though and then froze up and wouldn't track. I get spotty reception on the mtn so not sure of the problem is app or cell service related.

    This was a great app, but either the 8.1 upgrade or the app update cause the tracking to not work. Hope there is a fix in the works, because Runtastic does not do as good at tracking loops and mapping the hill.
