Incline App tracks time to the top

There is now an incline app. It gives a precise and indisputable answer to the question, "What's your time to the top."

A group of innovators from CoPilot Creative in Colorado Springs came up with idea. They have worked two years to develop it.

Geolocation creates a precise starting and stopping point for timing. A hiker can only start the app before the first step. To complete the time you have to pass the final step at the top.

The App is also a marketing tool for local businesses. As the App tracks progress and goals are met, it offers rewards available through local businesses. "You get rewards. So you can go have $2.00 off a margarita at The Loop or a half price appetizer at Craftwood Inn," said App co-creator, Austin Buck. The rewards are coupons that can either be printed or redeemed from your phone. "You just show that coupon code to the waiter, waitress or cashier," said co-creator, Thomas Eisenbeis.

The app is a free download. It is currently only available for I-phones.
