Awesome, ingenious app that looks great and works flawlessly

This app makes clever use of your device’s accelerometer to measure the forces you’re being subjected to on amusement park rides. It works very well, and as an iOS programmer myself, I can tell that Stephen has spent an inordinate amount of time reading and interpreting Apple’s interface guidelines for iOS apps.

A couple off the cuff ideas come to mind while using the app.

The first is to maybe integrate something like RCDB into your app to allow users to select the ride and seat location of a recording from a drop-down menu and maybe see some ride stats. A default could potentially be set based on geolocation.

The second is to set up some sort of database of user recordings where riders can compare forces and seat locations. This would probably depend on the aforementioned RCDB integration, or on crowdsourced data from users of the app. Again, geolocation could potentially be used to roughly verify recordings. This obviously adds hosting fees and logistics, so probably not feasible, but maybe something you could charge a small premium for to monetize the app if you so chose.

Finally, you should add a donate link to your site! This app is maybe the most well-done third party iOS I’ve used and I’m quite picky. Thank you for your hard work!
