What's New in Version 1.0.1
Nice little app tbh
Well designed and nice to see apps for Mountain Biking, nice to see Neil Donaghue doing the skills also, quality rider. Llandegla skills sections I do believe which shows that thought went into this app. Let's hope this starts some kind of trend for Mountain Biking apps on Apple iDevices.
Great start BUT very annoying having to watch the same into for every video especially when the videos are so short. Also rotate the app so we don't have to tilt the phone every time the video starts. Will be 5 stars once you sort the boggles out and add more! Until then have 3!
Great tutorials and well thought out, straight forward advice...helped a lot! this app is a must have for beginners to mountain biking.
