I decided to make SkiPhone free! If you purchased it, a refund is on its way.

Field Testing

So... I went to Heavenly to try out SkiPhone in a more realistic environment (and to take advantage of the massive snowstorm going through Tahoe). Apparently it's fairly easy to turn the screen on and interact with the touch screen accidentally over the course of the day, so I need to come up with a fix for that.

Plan:
- Make the screen timeout after a minute or so it can't stay on accidentally all day.
- Add a shake to unlock screen, so you can't accidentally open random apps.

Afterwards I'll get back to adding a camera feature.

SkiPhone v1.0 for Android Launched!


Have you ever tried to use a smartphone while you're skiing or snowboarding? Do you hate having to take your gloves off to answer or place a call? Now you can stay warm and connected on the slopes with SkiPhone v1.0 for Android. Turn SkiPhone on at the beginning of the day, and simply shake the phone up and down to launch Android Voice Actions. If you receive a call, just shake your phone up and down to answer it. Touch screens weren't made for the slopes!

Scan this barcode with your phone or search for "SkiPhone" in the Android market.
