At long last we have updated our iOS app. The experience is the same, but we have squashed a number of the bugs that have bothered our users for some time. The iOS app is for the iPhone, iPod and can be used on the iPad to get quick access to all our videos on your mobile devices.
We are also pleased to announce that we are in the final testing phases of our Android app. This app will be different than the iOS app in that it is a web app. This means that it will work the same way as if you were to go to YoTricks.com on your mobile Android device.

At long last we have begun to open our store to world wide international shipping. We are starting small, limiting our shipping to those countries from which we have received the most attention, specifically the United Kingdom, Australia, South Korea, and Mexico.
Our intention is to continue to expand our shipping as we gain interest in other countries. If you are ready to place an order and your country is not available on our checkout page send us an email through the contact page and let us know where you are from and we will do our best to get our store setup to ship to your area. Usually this will take place the same day, but as we are still testing our international shipping it may take longer if we run into any issues.

Here at YoTricks.com we are proud to unveil our newest creation, a brand new site built from the ground up. Our new interface is designed for ever expanding content while keeping a focus on learning tricks. As a part of our new launch we have added several new features to our site.
While we still love the Luminator and Dominator yoyos, we have significantly expanded our line of yoyos. We have hand picked the best (i.e. our favorite) yoyos from the major U.S. yoyo companies keeping in mind value, performance, and how well they facilitate the learning of new tricks. If you have not tried these yoyos we are confident you will love them as much as we do, and they will certainly take your skills to new heights.
More Trick Styles
With the addition of new yoyos we have been able to expand into different trick styles as well. Most notably 3A Yoyoing, Offstring Yoyoing, and Freehand Yoyoing. We are absolutely excited to bring these tricks to our users. At the same time, we labored greatly over what yoyos to use for each style. We are confident that the new yoyos we use in our videos and recommend to you will be a great asset to you as you seek to master these new skills.
Along with the release of the new website we are proud to be releasing a new mobile site as well. Just visit YoTricks.com on any mobile device and you will experience our new dynamic theme tailored specifically for YoTricks on the go.
As a part of our YoTricks relaunch we will be adding new types of videos to the site, including Yoyo Reviews, Yoyo FAQs and more. While we are still in the beginning stages for these videos we are working hard on new videos and are confident these videos will become a favorite for our users.
With such a big launch we are aware that there will be some problems. If you come across any bugs, typos, etc., please feel free to contact us and help us iron things out as we seek to move forward.
If you haven’t already done so be sure to download the latest version of the iPhone App. If you have tried to download it in the past and it crashed on you give this version a try. We have fixed a couple of holes in the code and tightened things up a bit.
If you find the app crashes when you start it please try this: hold the top button on your device down for five seconds and it will give you a prompt to “Slide to Power Off”. Use the slider to shut the device down and then hold the top button down again to restart the device. This will free up some memory on the device and should allow the app to open.
We have also been busy on a mobile version of the website to improve the YoTricks.com experience on all mobile devices, as well as an Android version of the app to bring our YoTricks.com yoyo videos to as many people as possible.
We’ll keep you updated as things develop.

At long last YoTricks.com is expanding its shipping, and we are starting with Canada. Why Canada? Is it because Canada is so close to the US, keeping shipping prices reasonable? Is it because we are constantly receiving emails asking us to ship to Canada? Is it because Canadian yoyoers rock? Yes, yes, and yes.
This is just the first step in expanding YoTricks.com shipping to countries around the world. Where will we expand next? That’s up to you. Let us know if you have been waiting to get YoTricks yoyos, shirts, hats, strings, etc., in your country, and we will look into what it will take to get our yoyos in your hands.

Check out this video of Joe Plummer (aka “Joe The Plummer”) at the 2011 Mideast Regional Yoyo Competition. Joe placed 4th in the 1A division wearing one of our great t-shirts and using a prototype yoyo from YoTricks.com. (FYI – the name of the yoyo is not “protoype”, the yoyo he is using is still in testing and has not yet been released.) Enjoy.
