A rink-finder app that shows all ice skating rinks within a specified radius. It could link to GPS to provide driving directions. There could be a brief description about each rink and typical times, costs. Hard to keep updated, but would be really nice!

An app that computes height of jumps? The phone's accelerometers would likely be key to pulling that off.

An app that shows zoomable dance diagrams on the screen for when you forget the rulebook. I wouldn't be surprised if that already exists.

Edit: I already had an "analog" version of that, as some here are aware.

Snoopy's Home Ice. I just really like Peanuts (if you can't tell from my icon) :)

Me too! My daughter/grandson live in Santa Rosa, so when I make it out to visit, my skates will go too!

Spin revolution counter? Is that even possible with iPhone technology? I don't think GPS is that sensitive, and I'm not sure how the accelerometers can be used for that. Nice dream app though!

How about a motion-activated video recorder that turns on only if you are in the frame? Yeah, I know, the motion of other skaters might trigger it on crowded sessions. So, put in face recognition? I see problems, but still just brainstorming.

How about an app that maps how far you have skated in a session? One might even calculate typical calories burned, etc.

Edit: Just thinking, there might be something similar for runners already. Don't know, though - just brainstorming.

I want one that sounds like a grumpy referee's whistle when a hockey kid gets too close.  :police:

What features would you want to see in a smartphone app for figure skating? Asking for a personal/school project! No idea too bizarre :) I have some ideas of my own, but wanted to see what other skaters have thought of while practising - things that make you think "oh, it would be great if there were an app that did this"
