I downloaded this about a year ago... used it 1 or 2 times. Found it to be really boring and frustrating and deleted it. Maybe I'll try it again now that it's January and won't stop raining.

Overall Impression: Totally Rad!

Suggestions for future updates:

-Add sheeting. That would definitely take this to the next level and complete the system.

-view on screen should stay level as you tilt side to side for kite steering when not using thumb control bar option.

-Park features / obstacles / more stuff to jump over or weave through? Boats, docks, reefs, sand bars, whales etc
(The existing islands/rocks in the cape town section is a good start)

-surfboard and hydrofoil board options would be cool

- Wildlife, including the occasional shark attack in freeride mode (why not - its a video game :) )

-Appreciative gal on the beach? Or even better- a choose male or female rider option ;)

There are many control options in the settings. (Upper right corner)
Bar on left or right, etc OR tilt side to side instead (for more realistic kite steering), Same for board controls.

Just cant set on tilt mode for both bar and board. Accelerometer (tilt mode) for bar is side to side, for board front to back. Use the most sensitive setting

Ive gotten best results from kite set on accelerometer (tilt phone left right), and board steering on thumb slider toggle.
