The snow season is starting to wind down, but there’s still time to get your Shaun White on. Snowboard powerhouse Burton today updated its free Windows Phone 8 app—available exclusively on Nokia Lumia phones—with two big new features. Download it from the Store

First, a quick recap. The app, which debuted earlier this month, provides snow forecasts, maps, and exclusive music mixes. All great stuff. But what really makes it a must-own is its innovative image sequencer, which captures cool action-sequence photos of your perfectly-executed Backside 180 Tailgrab, Double Cork, and other big air antics.  Check out the promo video below for a quick taste of how it works.

Now, version 1.1.1 adds two more sweet features. First, you can now track your ride time, speed, and vertical movement with the GPS-enabled Day Tracker. Cooler yet, you can also track your buddies on the mountain using the augmented reality Friend Finder feature. Give the app a try this weekend and let me know what you think. Finally, a few more app ideas for skiers and snowboarders from previous posts, here and here.

    This is unrelated but wanted to know if any of your Lumia 920 owners are experiencing the same problem that I am.  Recently purchased 2 920's, one for me and one for the wife.  When she's texting me, some come in twice, some do not.  She never receives duplicated text messages from me.  Is anyone else having this problem or having friends/co-workers complaining that you're sending duplicates?
