    "Super great idea, with terrible execution. I love the reports it offers, and the social parts are a really fine idea. The problem is that it seems to have been developed by monkeys with a typewriter, who threw this together on a break from hammering out rewrites of Shameless. Such a shame, because every time I saw something that says "wow, great idea" I'd find ten ways for it not to work."

    "This app isn't by any means of the imagination 'bad'. Not at all. That being said when someone seeks essential apps for skiers. It's a decent podcast player, so if you like that, give it a try. Otherwise move on."

    "I am a skiing fanatic. I spend all winter hitting up the greatest slopes I can find. Getting to these places requires a lot of driving and I constantly need directions. Google Maps has been hands down the best for directions when it comes to getting to hard to find places. It has not let me down for the last two seasons. If you are like me and constantly going to hard to find locations get Google Maps on your phone and save yourself a lot of time."

    "There are a lot of apps like this for both platform. I used a similar one on the iphone and it was more optimized for it, this android version is so buggy and does not even provide proper info on how to use it . I deleted it off my phone until the devs can improve on the tech. "
