This week Rip Curl releases an updated version of “Rip Curl Live Events” application, the most surf fan friendly ASP World Championship Tour Events App.
Rip Curl Live Events has been redesigned for both iPhone and Android, now ensuring that the App offers each surfing fan access to everything they want to know, as it happens, wherever they are in the world.
“We at Rip Curl have always considered ourselves as leaders in technical product innovations for surfers worldwide, and the same approach has been taken with this App,” says Brendan Downs, Rip Curl Global Web Master.
“It has been made for the Rip Curl Pro fan and tailored to what they really want; notifications for when their favourite surfers are in the water, alerts when the event is on and most importantly, the App allows them to watch live while they are on the move!”
Highlights of the App include favourite surfer heat alerts, rich push notifications, quality live streaming, score updates and an audio only stream for the fan on the beach. These capabilities, combined with the option to select notifications on the event status, receive up to date results, view photo galleries and event news; truly make the Rip Curl Live Events a standout iPhone and Android App.
Another feature of the App allows users to set a period of time each day for the app to stay silent. When an event is running on the other side of the world and the user is asleep, the Do Not Disturb functionality allows users to set a block of time to keep the notifications silent.
“This App is set to advance the surfing fan’s experience of every Rip Curl event across the planet. From swiping to pinching and zooming, we’ve really tried ensure that the Rip Curl Live Events App enhances everything users expect from their iPhone, and we’re really excited about the new Android version as well,” said Brendan Downs.
