4/22/2014A v1 effort. Meh. The agenda of this app is to sell you "training plans" . The goal is not to actually be a good, usable app. The screen is crowded, and ever-present is a banner for you to buy training a plan. My search continues to find a ski tracking app that actually works, has good usability and actually has the user in mind. You can see the wasted real estate in all of the screen shots, "Winter Premium Pass" and the lower right screen shot with KT-22. That window is so small is it useless, even on a large screen like a Nokia 920.
4/14/2014Used to accurately track. No longer anymore. Each time I go snowboard this season, it would mistrack at least 3 runs per trip. Forget it.
4/12/2014Love this app. Runs all day without draining battery.
3/24/2014Tracking wont work on the 1020 Nokia.. as soon as goes to lock screen, tracking stops.
3/23/2014Works exactly as advertised.
3/22/2014Final 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.
3/13/2014Loved it, but where did the speed go.
3/12/2014Awesome app. If all of the features worked properly (most importantly velocity) it would easily get 5 stars.
3/8/2014Great app. Love tracking runs and activity map across the mountain.
3/4/2014Best app for riding.... Until last update. Now it won't work on my Lumia 920. Please fix it. I want my awesome app back!
