Fans of action sports such as skateboarding, BMX, and Motocross have previously had to scour YouTube using search terms that would sometimes turn up a dog on a skateboard rather than their favorite athlete on a half-pipe. MPORA by MPORA.com takes all the hassle out of searching for videos and brings all your favorite extreme videos together in the palm of your hand.
The concept is rather simple. What action sport fan doesn’t like to watch videos of their favorite sports being performed by the professionals? It’s fun to watch, and it’s a great way to get ideas for your next trick. So, when you’re not challenging the heights of your favorite skiing mountain or defying gravity at your nearest skate park, break out your iPhone and watch the pros do it.
It’s a really easy-to-use interface; there is a Featured section, a Popular section and a Search section while the Recents section will show you all the most recent videos uploaded at MPORA.com (which, by the way, is a good replacement for YouTube when it comes to online action sports videos). What’s really great, though, is the sports filter settings. Don’t want videos about BMX? Go to the settings, the filter section and simply turn off the BMX switch. There’s a switch for every sport including Snowboarding, Ski, Wakeboarding, Outdoor, Windsurfing and more. If all you want is Mountain Biking, turn off every switch except Mountain Biking and that’s all you’ll get.
For what it does, the MPORA app is a great tool for watching some of the most death-defying sports on the planet. And best of all, it’s free! It’s made to be used in conjunction with its ad-supported website, so you’ll never pay a thing and, on the app, you’ll never see an ad. If you’re an action sports fan, get it now! And be the first of your friends to say, “Dude! Did you see that sweet video!?”
MPORA is compatible with both iPhone and iPod Touch. Requires iPhone OS 3.1.2 or later.
