### Don't miss out, try POWDERFUL next time you are on mountain! ###

Introducing Powderful - The ski / snowboarding tracking app for iPhone.

Powderful, a must-have for skiers & snowboarders, is your digital companion on the slopes, offering two killer features + many other unique cool features:

1. Detect beginnings & ends of runs automatically and track runs on the background while you are using other applications.

2. Talk to you as you powering down the mountain to keep you informed with various useful information, e.g. speed & time.


1, Set it & Forget it

The only thing you need to do is simply tapping the 'Start Tracking' button before your 1st run, and then enjoy your day, we will take care of the rest.

Powderful tracks your runs automatically, our intelligent algorithm detects the beginning and the end of a run by constantly tracking altitude changes. For say, when you get on a chairlift ride, Powderful ends the run automatically and waits for a new run to begin.

2, Speech Alerts

As you enjoy your day on the mountain, Powderful can talk to you to keep you informed.

Need to know your speed? Just create a target speed alert, Powder will speak to you once you reach your speed target.

Need to know what time it is? Just set a time announcement interval (e.g. 15 minutes), and Powderful will keep you updated accordingly (by announcing time once per quarter).

Powderful is fully compatible with iPod. Before an alert being announced, Powderful will turn down the music volume temporary, and mix the alert with your music, how cool is that?

3, Pixel-Perfect UI

Although Powderful tracks runs automatically, the customized user interface is handcrafted for maximum readability & visibility on the mountain, including a specially designed, easy-to-use dial control. Whenever you want to review your stats during a break, the simple interface is a pleasure to use. Beside, Powderful also supports high resolution retina display.

4, Map Support & GG Earth Export

Review your runs on satellite map view right on your phone. You can zoom in to review your speed & direction at any point during a run, as well as checking out stats, including top speed, average speed, vertical drop, and etc.

You can also export your runs to GG Earth KML files to view your runs in the GG Earth desktop application, in the stunning 3D view.

5, Power Management

You can set up a low-battery threshold (e.g. 30%), that once your phone battery drops below this level, Powderful will automatically stop tracking to preserve battery power, so that you don't have to worry about running out of battery.

You can also ask Powderful to keep you informed about your battery level via Speech Alert.

6, Social Networking

Share your run to Facebook or Twitter is just a tap away.

7, Metric & Imperial Unit Support

Meters or feet, KPH or MPH.

### FAQ ###

A: Yes, Powderful take full advantage of iOS background support. You can use any other app at the same time, while Powderful track your runs.

Q: Can I manually override the automatic run detection process?

A: Yes, you can manually start / end a run.

Q: Sometime Powderful incorrectly detects a run when I begin to ride a chairlift.

5/5 stars

Perfect skiing app

Great app with 2 issues, can't turn off end on stationary function and can't upload or email all runs at once.

EDIT: both bugs fixed in 1.2.0 upgrading to 5 stars!

0/5 stars

GPS does not calculate runs correctly!!

I ran this app and Ski Tracks all day. This app said I had 23 runs. I only did 9. Ski Tracks works perfect has more info and uploads to google earth. Save your money this app blows!!!

4/5 stars

Love it!

Used it at Stowe for a few days and was impressed. I just turned it on and left it in my pocket. The app did the rest.

Rating it 4 stars because of the many logged runs that were actually chairlift or gondola rides.

I can't find any explanation for the "Points" category and am very curious about it.

Great app!
