    THE BEST WINTER APPS OF 2013 - November 16, 2012

BEST FOR: BACKCOUNTRY SKIERS
Ullr Labs Mobile Avalanche Safety Tools

"Think of this, the most advanced backcountry app available, as another tool in your snow-safety toolbox. View or download forecasts from avalanche centers?and crowd sourced observations from local users?as well as cross-sections of recent snow pits and even slope, aspect, and crown size of documented avalanches. (A cell-phone signal is required only when downloading forecasts or submitting observation data.) Smart: the next version will feature cold- and glove-friendly voice commands. For Android and iPhone."
 
             
   
 
             
     
    Ullr helps you stay safe in the backcountry - October 14, 2012

"Education, experience, smart choices, dumb luck -- they're all factors when you venture into the backcountry, and your decision-making abilities can never be too sharp. That's why Ullr created the Avalanche Safety Tools app, complete with GPS, compass, clinometer (to measure the angle of a slope), avalanche forecasts and up-to-the-minute snowpack information. Don't even think about downloading this app until you've taken an avalanche safety course -- it was never intended to replace what you can learn in the classroom and field -- but once you are properly trained and equipped, you'll never regret paying $10 (Android) or $12 (iOS) for this one.

Ullr Labs Mobile Avalanche Safety Tools: $10 Android, $12 iOS

"If you frequently venture past the tape and into the backcountry, then Avalanche Safety Tools is one app that you must have. Created by Ullr, it comes equipped with a GPS, compass, and clinometer (a device that measures the angle of a slope). It also provides up-to-date avalanche forecasts and snowpack condition information. Though the app will never replace an avalanche training course, it?s another safety tool that is essential for backcountry snowboarders."

 
             
   
 
             
     
    Climbing Logic: Useful Back Country Phone Apps - June 26, 2012

"This is a great tool for anyone skiing and climbing in areas with avalanche concerns. This app has 4 basic functions: 1-Pull up the local avalanche forecast-no matter where you are in the world. 2-Record field data with ease. 3-Upload field data to local avalanche forecast centers. 4-Educational tools that are available at all times. One of the coolest features is using the ?photo? function in snowpack or avalanche observations. Point the camera down the fall line and the screen will show slope angle, aspect, Lat/Long, elevation, and time and date. Pretty cool."

    Blog: Smart Phone Apps - Dec 7, 2012

"The folks from Ullr Labs have been working with us for a couple years to develop an app to record snow and avalanche observations and they have a very easy-to-use app that displays the local avalanche advisory plus you can easily record snowpack and avalanche observations. You can export them either via email, camera roll or sync it to their own database and we are working with them to have it automatically sync with our database at the Utah Avalanche Center. It also has a cool feature where you take a photo with your phone up the slope and it captures the picture imprinted with the steepness, aspect, elevation, GPS coordinates, date and time and it is attached to the snow profile when you export the image."
