Tricktionary Mobile Apps

Gift the Tricktionary iPhone app

As the initial app is for free, you'll have a full beginner course until the waterstart included.


To get more moves in your Windsurfing TrickApp, you'll need to purchase move-packages within the

Therefore, gifting the app is not as easy as with normal commercial applications through iTunes.


Now - to gift move packages to somebody, just buy an iTunes pre-paid card or an iTunes gift card in your next big Supermarket carrying it. These cards have a certain value which then can be credited to an iTunes store account and be used to purchase items (such as move-packages ;).


Those pre-paid cards are really widely spread, so you should be able to find one close to you.

This makes the Tricktionary iPhone app also a great last minute (Christmas) present!! ;)


Any further questions, don't hesitate to contact us through our forum or you can use our contact form to send us an email.

How to make a move package work on my iPhone and iPad?!

To make this work, you need to use the same Apple ID on both devices (just because the in-app-purchase is bought through your iTunes store ID).


Install the app on your 2nd device, start it and go to SHOP inside the app.

Then click RESTORE on the package you purchased already, to install the in-app-purchase on your 2nd device.


How to redeem a pre-paid iTunes card

cardsIf you have a pre-paid iTunes card or an iTunes gift card, you can transfer the amount of the card to your iTunes account and then purchase items in the iTunes store.

This can be music, apps OR a move package in the Tricktionary iPhone app ;)


To redeem a pre-paid iTunes card, see the following instructions:

  1. Open iTunes, and click on "iTunes Store" on the left side of the screen.
  2. Go to the "Quick Links" window on the right side of the screen and click "Redeem."
  3. Enter the code from your prepaid iTunes card into the space provided and click "Redeem."
  4. This will credit your iTunes account with the amount of money on the card.
  5. Purchase items from the iTunes store against the balance of your card.

Once you have the amount on your iTunes account, you can enter the Tricktionary iPhone app and click "Shop" in the bottom to go online and see the available move packages.

You can have a good idea by just entering the move packages directly, preview the package by seeing the moves with the DEMO badge and see the whole list of moves that will available after purchasing the package.

After buying the move packages (click buy and enter your iTunes account info) the app will start downloading the content (Wifi connection recommended, the move packages are quite big!).

Once the download is finished, it will be installed automatically and you can go back into the app and start learning new Moves!

How to update a move package?

Our packages are updated frequently with new moves. To have those moves on your app, you'll need to download the new package from the internet.

2. Start the Windsurfing Trickapp on your device

3. At the main screen, press "SHOP" at the bottom

4. In the shop you'll see the available packages and will see "UPDATE" instead of "INSTALLED" at the package an update is available for.

5. Tap the package to update and on the top right press "UPDATE"

6. Leave your device on until the package is downloaded. It will also be installed automatically.

7. Press DONE and check the package for the new moves...

Why are the advanced move packages so expensive?

The market for mobile applications for windsurfers is very limited, due to the limited amount of windsurfers in the world.

Tricktionary Publishing is a small company, consisting of Michale Rossmeier and Sandra Schennach only. Everything we do needs to have some economic background and app developing is not cheap. Furthermore, Apple takes a huge percentage of all sales through their iTunes store, limiting the income of developers.


Windsurfing is not a mainstream market, so we can not sell quantity (eg. hundered thousand apps for 1 Euro/USD), we are selling specialized quality (hopefully a few thousand apps for the current move-package price of 7.99 Euros / 9.99 USD). It is not even certain we will cover the production costs that way, but we hope, windsurfers will appreciate our efforts and continue to be happy with our products, as they are with our books or dvds.

Access your potential!
