Like many people out there I try and take regular holidays, often abroad and, not unsurprisingly for a Paddleboarder, these are by the sea. Being based on the UK and loving international travel, the option of taking my 10’2 NSP solid board poses somewhat of a challenge, not only due to excess baggage charges and size limits on airplanes but also in terms of car rental when I arrive. Then we have the problem that not all the family like to paddle board, my youngest daughter for example likes kayaking. So last year I decided it was time to put a stop to renting the battered boards I ended up renting whilst I was away and see if I could come up with an alternative.
Some of our users have identified a couple of issues with IOS8.3 specifically when coming out of background mode when using bluetooth speakers.
We are investigating this issue at the moment, IOS8.3 is a major technical upgrade for us and we are working through it, but if you do see any issues please do let us know so we can try and solve them!
We just wanted to let everyone know that we are not just sitting back and kicking our heels! At the moment we are working on some really cool (at least we think so!) features for the app which should be landing soon.
We hope you like these and we have a pipeline of exciting work planned through the summer period.
Version 1.2 of the app has been submitted for review, it contains a number of bug fixes and the ability opt for audio feedback of button presses, we find this really helps when you are out in the sun!
We re-submitted this with a change to the Facebook post feature that was requested by them and hopefully this will solve the problem!
We are aware that there is a problem posting to your Facebook timeline for the app. We have raised this issue with Facebook and we are currently awaiting resolution from them,
We are hoping this will be resolved in the next few days without the need to release a new version of the app.
Just an update on this, Facebook guidelines have changed so we have been forced to change the software for this feature.
With a bit of luck and a following wind SUPTrails 1.2 Build 2 will get approved by Apple in the next week or so, and the method we have chosen will be approved shortly after!
– Released and fixed , please let us know if you have any more problems with this
We have had some reports of the app not having data to save.
This is usually caused by the app not having access to your device’s location data.
To fix this issue go into your phone’s settings and ensure location services are on, and that location services are set to ‘Always’ for the SUPTrails App.
We need this to be set so that we can track your location and progress!
An additional check and reminder to turn this on is in release 1.2 which is due mid February!
