Progress. Connect. Respect. Learn tricks. Play games of S.K.A.T.E. Take part in challenges with friends and pros around the planet. Build your personal skate profile. The Nike SB App turns the whole world into a digital skate playground at your fingertips. Get it.
Essentially, Nike SB App is the world’s best “How-To” video player for learning tricks combined with a social platform for progressing your skills and playing S.K.A.T.E. with anyone in the world.
It’s available for the iPhone (4 and later) and wifi-enabled iPod Touch (4 and later). A multitude of features such as the multi-angle tilt-to-play video, YouTube dynamic uploading and streaming, gamification, Trick Tree and the game of S.K.A.T.E. are all packaged in a 40-megabyte-memory footprint. This leaves plenty space for music, photos and whatever else to be stored on your phone.
The tilt-to-play videos feature tricks from Nike SB’s all-star skate team, including Sean Malto, Paul Rodriguez, Alex Olson, Eric Koston, Brian Anderson, Cory Kennedy, Lance Mountain, Omar Salazar, Shane O’Neill, Stefan Janoski and Theotis Beasley. The Nike SB App takes advantage of the iPhone’s accelerometer to control playback on the videos. Tilting the phone away from you slows the video down. Tilting it toward you speeds it up. The videos can be played forward or backward. Swiping a finger across the video changes the viewing angle on the trick. This feature alone is worth the download.
