Ski Buddy


Ski Buddy is not your typical "ski tracker" app that gives your ski statistics at the end of the day, after the fact. Instead, Ski Buddy gives your ski statistics in real time as you ski by speaking over your earphones. Your speed, altitude, distance traveled, and time of day are spoken at user selected intervals. In addition, a unique "ski mode" gives statistics for each run as it is completed. Ski Buddy will record your top speed as you ski down the run. When you get on the lift at the bottom and start back up, a run report will automatically speak your top speed. Run reports can also be sent to your Android Wear watch.
Ski Buddy is truly a new kind of ski app that gives your ski statistics in real time as you ski.

- Time is spoken every hour, half hour, or quarter hour

I liked it until It lost today's data (I hit 86 km/h top speed and wanted to brag with a screenshot) but waited till I returned to the chalet to do it. I had not closed the app but it had reset itself :-(

Simple but good This app is realy useful and simple. There's nothing useless. It could be better if when the voice is speaking it stops the music or if you could make the app's sounds louder than the music.

Great app, used to be better. Before the last android update, this app would pause music playing, then talk to you. BUT it also used to glitch often and play from the phone speaker, instead of the headphones. On my GS3 it no longer glitches, however I cant hear the app because it no longer pauses my music! 5/5 if it paused music to talk like it used to. Without music playing its a Great app!
