Ride Run N Record ~ is now ~ Social Downhill
Get stoked because whether you’re into Longboarding, DH MTB, Snowboarding, or any Gravity Driven Sport… It’s all Downhill and this is the app for you!!!
NEWLY RELEASED UPDATE! With an all-new design and awesome new features!!! Social Downhill is one of the top rated apps, find out why… Download this app today!
Easily tracks routes, max speed, average speed, distance and time. See how your runs and rides compare to your friends, and just how fast you where in that corner.
Open the app and choose between Auto Stop and Manual Stop.
~ Switch Between Standard and Metric units in Settings
~ Auto Stop: Records your run automatically. Simply choose this option at the top of the hill and bomb it. Auto Stop will begin recording as soon as you start bombing down the hill (it won’t start recording early like other apps). When you come to a complete stop, it will automatically end and save your route! Ya, it's awesome!!!
~ Auto start/stop trigger adjustment in settings.
~ Manual Stop: if you choose this option, it also only starts recording once you start moving, but when you come to a complete stop, it will pause (like if you ate it half way while bombing that hill) and then will continue recording once you start again. Tap 'Finish' to end and save your route.
~ The 'Comparison Button' allows you to overlay your route on top of another route, to see who was faster, especially in those corners!
~ The 'Stats Button' sums up all of your statistics with just the tap of your finger! It’s all in your hands.
~ Records your entire ride on a Google Maps layout. You can see your route in satellite or standard mode!
~ Dropped pins throughout your entire run show an accurate report of your max speed, average speed, distance, and time.
~ Upload your route within the app and compare it with others in your own city and around the world!
~ Now you can learn where other great spots are and see other user's top speeds and times, from start to finish!
~ Take a screen shot and post it on Instagram or Facebook to show all your friends what’s up!
You can close the app, text, make a phone call, lock your phone, whatever. The app runs in the background and continues to record your route, because it’s automatic!!!
***********************************We are avid downhill riders and wanted something that was super user friendly, not overly complicated, didn’t start recording till we started bombing, auto-saved when we stopped (because we forget to end the run), and most of all just worked! Sound familiar?

What's New in Version 2.1.1
-Fixed various bugs effecting performance withing the stats screen.
I personally don't think any app does well with finding hills. People post garbage spots and have misleading descriptions. So that part will let you down with any app. Fortunately this also has other GREAT FEATURES that make me love it. I can find things like my top speed on a run and when I reached it. Very accurate as well. The interface for this app looks like a first gen iPhone, but it works great and is easy to use. This app is worth the space it takes up!
I've been using this app for a couple years now and have never had a problem with it. Super reliable defiantly worth downloading. Try it!
This was an awesome thing to hear about. A great way to find out about new hills.
However there's no way to search for hills around where you are.
The only method is to scroll down the feed of added hills and read the cities, not the states, associated with each one.
I'm new in my state. I know like none of the cities!
