What’s this? Why it’s the FreeSK8 Mobile App thread! Stay tuned for development updates & release information on the state of our mobile app development projects!
FreeSK8 Mobile is a rider-focused multi-function mobile application that provides an ever growing number of features, and also serves as our primary datalogging interface for our FreeSK8 Robogotchi (more on this soon).
The app has been designed from the ground-up by our very own @skate420, in Flutter so that the app can be made available cross-platform. Renee has been a one-woman-army behind our software engineering efforts, and if you’d like to support her development efforts or buy her a cup of “coffee” feel free to throw a donation her way via our FreeSK8 Patreon.
And of course, we will be open sourcing our entire codebase when it’s ready for release.
Logging Please note that our logging features are based around our soon to be released Robogotchi modules which have integrated flash to facilitate always-on logging features. This means you won’t need to maintain a bluetooth tether to your phone to log; just turn your board on and the Robogotchi will start logging when your ride starts, and afterwards you can sync up to the FreeSK8 Mobile App to transfer your logs over from your board!
NRF/BLE modules can still connect to the app to view real-time data & make configuration changes.
Currently we are holding a limited Early Access Closed Beta Test in the Google Play Store for Android devices, and are expected to have our iOS version of the app available in the next 2 weeks.
Screenshots shown below are from previous alpha builds and should not be considered final in layout or form.
FreeSK8 Mobile App Beta Signup is here, however please understand that we’re currently limiting the number of early access participants, so sign-up does not guarantee an invite. Public open beta testing will likely begin around the same time that we launch Robogotchi beta (later this month).
