It is very simple in use:
Choose temperature and snow type, click the button and receive a complete guide to how you should prepare your skis with grip wax.
As opposed to all other ski waxing apps I've tried, this app explains you both what wax [klister] to put as a base layer, what to put as a top layer, and what you should bring in your backpack or drink belt to ensure that you always have the grip wax you need during your trip.
There's even an FAQ menu with help on how to measure the kick zone, how to remove wax, how to avoid all kinds of waxing problems while skiing, and an overview of what equipment you will need.
At any time you may select language; so far it's available in Norwegian, Swedish, and English.
The app is completely independent of all the ski wax producer; the tips are based on the wax I would have used myself. So if I advice you to use Swix Blue Extra or Rode Rossa klister, I do NOT get any money from Swix or Rode.
More functions will appear in the future, so please let me know if there's anything you wish for.
PS. I do not offer any kind of weather reports. You can find that other places, or preferably just look out of your window and check the thermometer! Touching the snow with your hand is a good way to check the snow type. Tasting it is not recommended.
BTW, using the app does not require an internet connection.
Index terms: ski wax, grip wax, kick wax, cross-country skiing, xc skiing, nordic skiing, klister, ski tracks, ski trails.
The app is intended especially for team leaders and trainers but also for ambitious skiiers who would like to improve their technique. Short videos show how to execute the individual steps correctly from several different perspectives - in real time, slow motion and with diagrams. In order to study individual movement sequences in greater detail, it is possible to move the pictures both forwards and backwards individually.
Still pictures with explanatory texts illustrate the crucial phases of the movement and help users improve their technique so as to ski more efficiently.
Once the app has been downloaded, the videos can be played without an Internet connection. Thanks to its functional design, the app can be used directly on the ski trail.

Also you can now replay your day using the Map Playback feature.
Take photographs and they are automatically geo-tagged to your Track.
Note 1. Actual recording length dependant on battery condition, temperature, other background applications and phone usage.

The map charts the position of over 440 resorts across the Alps from Lyon to Ljubljana, and Milan to Munich. The app is effectively a digital version of the paper map, which was first released for the 2011 season, but with several additional features, including:
· the routes of more than 15 overnight trains to the Alps from countries across the continent to help skiers travel in style from destinations as far afield as London, Rome, Prague, Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Moscow (verified by the Man in Seat 61)
· a total of 130 rail-served resorts uncovered by the SkiRail Map research team from Swiss slopes within an hour train’s ride of Zurich, to Italian resorts just an hour from the coast
· the position of 25 airports in, or near, the Alps, highlighting the ones with their own railway station for a seamless connection with the local rail network
· the addition of over 50 railway stations in the Alps to help ski-rail passengers orientate themselves as they travel through the mountains
· grid references for all 130 rail-served resorts to enable destinations to be found quickly and easily
· a number of unusual, non rail-served destinations such as Liechtensteins’s only ski resort (Malbun, and Gréolieres Les Neige in Provence (just 20 kms from the Mediterranean with views across to Corsica)
A wide range of skiing data is provided on resorts accessible by rail including the extent of downhill and cross-country skiing available, altitude, vertical drop, difficulty of skiing, and journey times by rail to the nearest city.
Intrepid skiers will now be able to plan their relaxing, low-carbon adventures from their smartphones, and benefit from train travel, the most enjoyable form of mountain transport other than skiing itself.
The original SkiRail Map of the Alps is on sale from Roger Lascelles (Maps) Ltd and from most good bookstores, and is available both as a handy folded map and wall map. The folded map comes with an accompanying 40-page factfile giving more information on skiing by train and the various resorts.

Donorkortet fungerer slik:
- Legg inn ditt eget navn samt navn og mobilnummer til to av dine nærmeste. Trykk send, og disse vil motta en sms om at du har tatt stilling og fått deg donorkort på telefonen.
- Informer (muntlig) de to pårørende du har påført på kortet om din beslutning slik at du vet at de vet!
- Legg til donorkort på låstskjerm hvis ønskelig
(*) Donorkort kan installeres på over 800 ulike Android enheter og det er derfor vanskelig å lage et donorkort som ser riktig ut på alle enheter. Ikke bare pga skjermstørrelser, men også pga standard utseende og overlays på de ulike låstskjermene. På de fleste Android enheter har man muligheten til å behandle bildet før det legges til på låstskjerm, slik at man kan prøve og feile litt.
