Rollercoasters + social networks = ...

AirCoaster 3D v3! Approved by Apple just a few hours ago.

Major changes in v3 (our 11th update!) are:
  • Social networking goodness: You can follow people, write on their walls, post comments, etc.
  • A much improved track editor. You can now do crazy things like corkscrews on loops and half-corkscrews, and apply brakes and boosters. The track editor even shows you how fast you'll be going at different points on the ride.
The v3 update requires OS 3.0, but there's an OS 2.2.1-compatible version coming out very soon. We submitted both to Apple at the same time, but the OS 3.0-compatible version got approved first.

Here's a video of a track that was built in v3. Enjoy!

UPDATE: The OS 2.2.1-compatible version has just been approved by Apple. The OS 2.2.1 and OS 3.0 versions are identical, except that the OS 3.0 version is able to use the compass on the iPhone 3GS.

(In retrospect, I should have made the OS 3.0 version a separate app rather than an update to the existing app, seeing that so many Touch users have not upgraded. Oh well.)

Here are the app store links:

Love the new icon! And the upgraded track editor is pretty fun to use.
