Your little BlackBook... by Garret Hill

If you're a lurker and get out to many different spots, you might consider this little treat to keep all your tip-offs and crisp spots up to date...

iTunes puts it like this:

Search and Destroy! BlackBook is the first successful productivity app geared towards skateboarders. Created by professional skateboarder Garrett Hill, BlackBook is the perfect accessory for any street skater, skate rat, filmer, or photographer. Just as the pros keep a detailed “spot book”, you too can use BlackBook to easily, discretely, and conveniently keep track of spots anywhere in the world! Pinpoint the exact location of your secret spot and you’ll have the following at your disposal:

A customizable To-Do list of tricks you’d like to land at the spot

Personalized notes or “Spot Tips”
A photo gallery specific to each the spot
A video clip gallery specific to your spot

BlackBook has a simple-to-use interface that allows you to organize skate spots in several formats. Select a spot at your whim by choosing it from your map, your location, or by name.

Create new spots from anywhere on the globe! Otherwise, you can create a spot remotely by easily creating a pin on your map.

Garrett Hill says, “The app is simple to use and I don’t know a single person in skateboarding who doesn’t have a use for this app: everyone from street skaters to professional and aspiring filmers and photographers. We’ve all been demanding something like this for a long time, but no one was able to put their finger on how to go about it, until now. It’s not some novelty, people are really going to get a lot of use out of this app. Even in it’s developing stages, it’s really been crucial in helping me film for my parts in upcoming skate videos.”

I've downloaded it... I'll keep you posted how it works!
Pick it up from The App Store
