What's new in version 1.5
With this update the following changes have been made to improve the functionality and fix minor glitches in the application:

1. The introduction video that appeared upon selecting SK8 sports icon has been eliminated. This video was causing some users to experience a blank screen upon entering the application.
2. In the Sports Recorder section the videos are now being listed with the most recently recorded videos first. Previously this section was freezing up for some users when they would scroll to locate the most recently recorded videos. By eliminating the need to scroll through all of the videos very quickly, the application will have enough time to load all of the videos and not freeze up.
3. For new iPhone users the Auto Lock setting on the phone was causing some videos to stop downloading. This problem has been corrected.
Our verdict: Ok
  • + SK8 Sports-Figure Skating is a highly rated app (4-star).
