Ratings and Reviews
This is definitely the best looking ski/snowboard tracking app. I love the social media aspect of this app, it really brings my friends and family together!
Although it's my favorite skiing app there are a few improvements. I'm not sure the max speed is as accurate as others. I don't have any proof at the moment, but I plan on testing this next time I go up to the mountains, and compare it to Ski Tracks.
Another simple and cool idea would be leaderboards amongst friends. I don't care too much about my overall standings as long as I am beating my friends :).
When it comes to the map for a particular run, it's pretty cool with the color coding, but a legand would be nice, is red or green fast?
This one might be a stretch, but I would also love for you to have a "king of the mountain" where each run has a best time and you could compete with friends. People could add KOM stretches on a mountain and it would keep track of the fastest people to ride that section of the mountain. Maybe you could do KOM for each run and then when looking back at your runs it would tag all the KOM stretches you hit while going down.
This app is so close to being great
There are two big issues with it. One, it doesn’t write “active energy” to the apple health app but it does write “workouts”. What this means is that you will close your green exercise ring several times over but the activity app will basically read your day of skiing as a brisk walk. You may not close your pink move ring depending on what your daily goal is. Other workout apps do this and it’s great. Snoww calculates it and you can see your active calories in the health app but it doesn’t write it and it doesn’t count toward closing your ring.
The second issue is that it starts randomly. I’ll start the app on my first ride up the mountain and frequently I already have a 23 hour session going. There isn’t a way to discard or cancel a session and so the quickest way is to kill the app on your watch and your phone without closing the workout session and then start a new session from your phone. It’s a pain.
Other than those two issues, the app is great.
2 minor bugs with this app...
There are two minor bugs with this app.
First, during account creation, there is an input field for an email address. If the user enters in a valid email address, followed by a trailing white space, the user is not able to complete the account creation process. An error message appears that says “Sign up error” and that not all required fields have been entered. This message is misleading, and a trailing white space should either be auto-corrected, or there should be an error message indicating that something is not right with the entered email address.
The second problem is with the Siri Voice Commands and the shortcut that is added to Springboard. If the phone is locked, and the user then selects snoww’s shortcut from SpringBoard, a misleading and confusing error message appears. If both of these problems could be fixed, that would be great. Thank you!
