Nike has released a new Nike SB app for iOS devices, which includes various features that attempt to integrate skaters from different locations. The app includes the ability to learn and share tricks with a "Trick Tree" section that contains videos and directions, daily challenges issued by the Nike SB team that allows users to gain exposure by filming and uploading videos of themselves, and badges for accomplishing tasks throughout the app.
The app also includes the ability to play a game of S.K.A.T.E. which involves two users connecting with each other in a round of sudden death trick performances. To prove that they have done the trick, each user records 15 seconds of video performing a trick for their opponent to match, as each failure by a user accmulates a letter. The first user to accumulate the word "SKATE" loses, and a user may not pause an active recording once it has started. A full record of wins and losses within the game are also attached to user profiles and can be viewed throughout the app.
