v2017.7 - released 2017-11-20
Slopes is starting the season with a bang! This is a big update, containing 4 awesome new features.
- 3D Flyover: The 3D view just got a complete rewrite and upgrade! Pass holders can replay their runs on awesome new virtual 3D mountains. This 3D mode now includes the ability to zoom / pan around the mountain to scope out your run, and uses the great timeline scrubber from the 2D mode to move through your day.
- Free online backup: Slopes will now automatically back up your data to my servers too keep it safe. Just sign up for a free Slopes account to get started.
- Photo library integration: Instead of having to manually import a day's worth of photos into Slopes to see them, Slopes can now automatically show photos from your photo library. You can still import and attach a single photo as the highlight photo. If you're worried about privacy, don't worry; photos that are displayed from your library automatically do not get copied into Slopes (or onto its servers as part of backup). Also, if you had previously imported more than one photo for a day, Slopes will copy it back to your photo library if needed when you run this update.
- Enhanced replay controls: Replaying now uses the timeline scrubber, so you can more easily move around to specific times during replay. With this new interface replaying a run now works in 2D mode, too! Lastly, replays now include a graph of your speed and vertical as you play back your run. Hit the play button to give it a spin!
Plus a ton of other smaller but important features and improvements:
- iPhone X support.
- The daily summary screen got a facelift.
- The photo browser got support for zooming in on photos, and support for Live Photos and videos.
- Updated the Lifts & Runs view to always show your current location as you scroll through your day, even if Slopes had categorized that time as “other” (vs a lift or run).
- You can now change your Slopes account email in-app.
- Added two new GPX export options.
- Fixed jumping to exactly where you tap on the timeline map view.
- Enhanced heat map color logic to better highlight variations in speed.
- Plus the normal "bug fixes and improvements" everyone loves to see.
