itango – FreshApp

A very fresh news from the technology world. This application is designed for tangueros. Hurraaa!

It is so fresh that still I could not have time to go in deep to understand how it works. What is more I am too old for new technologies. Still i enjoyed the video they have prepared in cooperation with Otros Aires.


I am sure you will understand it better than me and if you like maybe even you will use it. I will just drop the below note from their own webpage to help you find it out more (links available at the end). Before that, I just want to inform you that application is available (since 15th of April) in AppStore ($2.99), Google Play (2.99 EUR) and Windows Phone ($2.99).

Enjoy the fresh app!

  1. An easy solution to the heel-first/ball-first qoutsien is to let your forward step touch the floor first with the outside edge of the foot. Simply turn your toe out and down slightly so that the area of your little toe becomes the landing gear. It looks graceful and unaffected, and allows your weight to come automatically onto the ball of the foot as you complete the step. Depending on your walking trajectory, the heel may sometimes hit first, but it’s not a big deal and you will always have a soft landing if your foot posture follows this formula.Further hint: For back steps and side steps, the inner edge should touch down first. Reach back from the hip and set the posture of your foot to make this happen.
