Today Apple news, ‘Slopes’ Ski & Snowboard App Supports iOS 14 App Clips.
Slopes: The Ski & Snowboard Tracker app has been updated with many new features, one of which is support for iOS 14 app clips. An app clip is a small part of an app that iOS 14 users can quickly install to access the most relevant information they need right now.
Slopes app clip
In the case of Slopes, its application clip will display the following data:
- Trail maps and station information for approximately 1,800 stations worldwide. There’s also station data such as elevation and trail difficulty distribution, along with information on what kind of stats you can expect to get in a day, according to other Slopes users.
- Information on ski emergencies, listed with a quick access button on these resort screens.
On your iPhone in iOS 14, you can tap this link to test it. You will see a banner at the top; press the View button to download the app clip. It includes a banner to install the full app from the App Store if you want, but the beauty of the app clips is that you don’t need the full app if you just need quick information.
Other new features
Slopes also has other features. First, the new real-time condition report lets you see the weather conditions for a particular location. These are based on reports uploaded by users, making them more accurate than a general weather report. Another iOS 14 feature is a widget for your home screen. Pick your favorite resorts and pin their terms to your home screen, and you can know when to get ready for a trip.
