This last trip to Europe I had a new app on my phone, the Ski Tracks app by Core Coders. It is a fun app to have on your phone and gives you lots of neat information. I did have it not record on my last day since I didn't have the proximity lock on and it turned off in my pocket (goddammit). I did record the last day on my Garmin GPS but Ski Tracks can't import any file but the native .skiz file format. They also don't have an application that runs on your computer nor do they have a web-based program. The app gives you lots of information but to view it means looking at your phone. You can download the information and view it in Google Earth but you have to email the track to yourself. Not a huge problem but it would be easier to simply have a website you could log into, plug in your phone, and have the website read and download the information to the website so you can play around with it. Maybe that is in the cards for the future.
Once the information is sent to you via email as a .kmz file you can look at it in Google Earth. However, this information isn't as detailed as what you get on the app itself. In Google Earth, there is no breakdown of vertical between uphill and downhill, nor is there any breakdown in type of distance. So, it gives you your total vertical and distance but for alpine skiing this is misleading. Also, in GE there is no mention of how many runs you had. What would be nice is to have all the information of the app on a website with the ability to view it in GE with the uphill/downhill portions color coded and the number of runs listed, and an ability to save a screen shot of the app information as a jpeg. Hint, hint, Core Coders.
Not a bad app but could be better. My score 6 out of 10.
