Parkour Live is a must have app for anyone serious about their training. This utility comes in a full version as well as a lite version. The full version is sold for the reasonable price of $2.99. It comes with a large variety of features which I use everyday. It is a beautiful looking application, with a sharp menu that makes navigating to all the features easy. These features include the following.
Create your very own profile with all the info that makes you . . . you! Tell about the shoes you wear, your group, etc. You can add your favorite videos to your profile page to show what your into. You can even connect to your YouTube and Twitter accounts!
PK Rank is pretty much your Parkour score. Earn PK points by completing challenges, earning achievements, and getting PK+ on your posts or comments.
The news feed is by far my favorite thing to use. It is where you and your friends post about what's going on. Some people just post quotes (me). You also can comment on each others posts and give your friends PK+ on things you like.
Unlock achievements by completing various actions within the app. Achievements will give you PK points; The amount earned is based on how hard the achievement is to complete.
Challenges are a very useful feature in PK Live. Challenges can help you to improve your skills immensely. These challenges consist of one person sending a video of themselves performing a move to one of their friends. Their friend must then attempt to replicate the move in the challenge video; The friend then uploads his attempt at recreating the move. After that the challenge goes live and the whole Parkour community gets to vote and decide if he passes or fails the challenge. For every win vote the PK points that will be awarded on completion of the challenge goes up, for every fail vote the PK point bounty diminishes. Be careful not to get too many fail votes or you may fail the challenge entirely and receive no reward. If you are having a hard time replicating the move for the challenge, feel free to ask the challenger for advice.
Your map is an effective training location marker. It allows you to drop pins on your map to mark where you like to train and even where you haven't trained yet. Never forget where you did that awesome move again!
World map is a dandy group feature. Register your team on this map for the world to see! Check out all the teams that use Parkour Live, you can also join groups through this feature.
The final feature is the stretch timer. Use this to warm up for a training session or cool down after a hard day conditioning, it's quite nice!
To Conclude PK Live is an amazing app with an extremely nice community. I strongly recommend this app to anyone who trains Parkour or Freerunning. You could settle for the lite version but be sure to get the full version if you want all of these awesome features. So what are you waiting for? Get this app today! (http://parkourlive.net/)
