Vans SK8: Pool Service v1.1 submitted to Apple

Thought I'd let everyone here be the first to know that I've just submitted v1.1 of Vans SK8: Pool Service to Apple. This release should resolve most, if not all, of the issues that some people reported with the controls. It also includes a few other tweaks and changes that we had heard (mostly on these forums).

Here's the list of the major "what's new" items:
  • Calibration process/timing has been changed
  • Turn sensitivity added to the options
  • Restart option added to the pause menu
  • Added more skateboarding sounds while skating
  • Subtle camera tilt while in the air

Thanks again for all the feedback so far, looking forward to hearing what you all think of this version once it gets approved!

Have you thought any about adding skate areas? Or is that not a planned free update? I've been holding off buying to see what your business model is for areas.

Well I didn't want to get everyone too excited since it's not in this update, but we have already begun work on designing the next pool environment. The current plan is for that to be included with the next free update.

Cool, thanks for the heads up on their review, I hadn't noticed that one


Sales have been going okay, but I think a lot of people were holding off from reports of people having issues with controls. That's been the main focus of this update so hopefully a lot more people give it a shot once it's been approved.

Fab news, it's become one of my most played and fave apps! Read some great stuff about skateboarding after doing some research on Mraz' Video of I'm yours. I'm too old to get back on a skateboard now so Vans SK8 is my fix!
