Slopes is a powerful winter sports companion app for iOS that provides snowboarders and skiers with 3D maps of their routes and stats of their runs. When we previously covered the app we were impressed with its functionality, but its latest update has taken Slopes to a new level of usefulness.
Slopes 1.4 introduces a new Today widget featuring stats on your current day and your previous run, new Health Kit integration, and full support for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. The Today widget will come in useful for checking your stats on the slopes without having to fully unlock your device. Health Kit integration allows you to see how many calories you’ve burned during your ride and have that information shared with the Health app.
In addition to now supporting the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, the developer has also changed the 3D run graphs to take advantage of all that screen real estate. 3D run graphs are now full-screen only, making the maps bigger and easier to read.
