Today we’d like to tell you about the iPhone app and its functions…
The app aims to be the command centre for glassy Pro users, where they can find out all kinds of surf information, no matter where they are.
We have started by developing the app for iOS, in the next couple of months we will also launch an Android version.
So, what will you find in this first version? One of the key features is the ability to create a personalised list of your favorite and nearby surf spots. You can instantly view the surf and weather conditions there (so that you can quickly make the decision to skive off work and go surfing!) This feature is supported by a world map of public spots, which you will find on the platform. At the moment we already have more than 4,000 spots worldwide, and expect to have over 10,000 by 2013.
Another key aspect is the sessions feature. This is where you can see a history of all your previous surf sessions (with information such as the surf conditions that day, the board that you used, and much more). With Glassy, it is really easy to record the length of your surf session, just initiate the timer and leave the phone idle before getting in the water. When you’re done, reactivate the application – it will have registered the total time surfed and the conditions. You can then share the session on Facebook and Twitter (just remember to link up your accounts in settings).
As your number of sessions increases, so will your level. In future versions of Glassy you will also be able to see your friend’s levels and compete with them.
This version aims to be the base of a solid application with a revolutionary future. Here are the functions of Glassy.pro, version 1.1:
You can programme personalised notifications for spot-specific surf and weather conditions. You will receive a push notification on your phone when, for example, it’s ten feet overhead at Teahupoo (hmm…I think I’ll just watch from the beach, thanks!).
In order to facilitate the search for spots that have the exact characteristics that you want, there are several filters. For example, if you want a right-hand break, just say so! There are more than 15 filters to help you find your perfect spot.
It’s all shaping up nicely, right? All of this will be available in December. We are working tirelessly to improve your experience with Glassy.Pro, and trust me, it won’t cease to amaze you.
