Seems everyone and their brother is making snowboard apps these days. Since I was part of the awesome online snowboard media invited to the Burton Open in Vail by Nokia they have provided me with the new Lumia 820 to play with. Now that I have a Windows phone I can play with the cool kids!
So here’s what the press release says about the app:
For the last three seasons, Nokia and Burton have been tinkering away on some truly innovative collaborations.
Now their latest innovation – an exclusive Burton smartphone app designed to improve the rider experience of every shredder on the hill – has just hit the virtual shelves.
So how does it work? As well as plenty of Burton gear and film content, the app’s main features help with three classic shred preoccupations: photos, snow and music.
How? The Burton Sequencer enables you to film your lines and tricks and stitch them together into instant morphed sequences which you can share online to Facebook and Twitter.
Then there’s the Burton Forecast function, which lets you check the snow levels, weather conditions and see which runs are open at over 2600 resorts.
Once you’re there, the Tune Up function is pre-loaded with shred-ready playlists so you can get juiced up on the hill.
The app is completely free and exclusively available in the Windows Phone Store for Nokia Lumia 620, 820 and 920 devices.

So since we always like to test how things work we’ve played with the phone (Thanks Nokia) we played with the app (Thanks Burton) and all we can say is it does what it says. So I think those of you that are tech savy might like this. Over all the idea of setting up a sequence shot is great if you’re getting a good shot.
