Slopes, a tracking app for winter sports like skiing, snowboarding, and other stats, has been updated to version 2.0, going free up front, adding a bigger map, a refreshed interface, and support for 3D Touch. The Apple Watch app for Slopes now takes advantage of watchOS 2.
The update comes with a number of new features, improvements, and fixes. Check out the list below to see the highlights.
- Brand new runs & lifts view.
- The map is now ~40% bigger.
- Visually see you how long a lift / run was with the new timeline scrubber at the bottom.
- Scrolling through your timeline updates the map with an icon showing exactly where you were.
- The maps are now interactive, too. You can now pinch / zoom / pan around the map.
- New start recording screen with your lifetime stats. How much vertical can you grab?
- The recording screen has also been redesigned: see lift vs run time estimates live, and enjoy a more legible interface despite the sun's glare.
- Calorie burn estimates are now also available while recording.
- Huge improvements to the GPS processor giving you more accurate stats, especially in poor-GPS situations (old activities will be re-analyzed, too). Thanks to everyone who sent in their inaccurate runs!
- Peak and Pop gestures for devices with 3d touch.
- The Watch app as been updated to take advantage of watchOS 2.
- Fixed what looked like a loss of data when you restored from an iCloud backup.
- Fixed a flickering issue when opening a photo full-screen.
- Fixed a bunch of other bugs and crashes that no one complained about, but I knew needed to be crushed.
Slopes is now free to try up front. For users that want to get the most out of the app, they can sign up for a Season Pass subscription of $7.99 per month.
