By 30 South LLC
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Ride Tracker is a GPS based tracking app for people who like to road or mountain bike. Get it now to help with your new years resolutions!
STATS AND MAPS
Ride Tracker tracks speed, distance, altitude, and time. It also gives you a map showing where you have been while you are saving a run.
When viewing saved runs your route shows up on the map color coded by speed. It shows where you went the fastest (red) and where you were slowest (blue).
Don't have a mount to see the stats as you bike? You can have the app tell you updates on your progress either every mile or every five minutes.
PAUSE AND RESUME
Pause the workout to catch your breath or chat with a friend and then resume when you get back to it.
Share your workout with your friends on Facebook with our easy to use integration.
If you have a mount for your phone this app is perfect. You can easily see your stats in real time with your current speed being the focal point.
VIEW TIME PERIODS
See the stats for the last run, last week, current month, or all time with the touch of a button as well as the ability to choose a specific track.
You can switch between 3 different map types including street, hybrid, and satellite view.
The supports both standard and metric units.
Note: Continued use of the GPS will reduce battery life.
What's New in Version 1.7
-bug fixes with a map problem that occasionally caused a crash for some users
Functional, far from perfect
I can't really recommend this app and have replaced it for tracking my own ride.
Pros: It does what it says without a lot of extra nonsense. Beyond the basic tracking function, it doesn't offer a lot of bells and whistles like many similar apps, but it also doesn't charge a subscription for them. In my opinion, this is a net plus, especially for beginners and those for whom cycling isn't their main sport.
Cons: I have three problems with this app.
#1 Why does this app need to track my location when the not in use? None of my other fitness apps need this. Heck, my map apps don't even need this. In practice, it means having to go into my privacy settings to toggle location access when starting and ending a ride. Super annoying.
#2 Voice summary does not work at all. Probably not a big deal for Apple Watch users, but for everyone else it means riding blind or stopping to check your distance.
#3 It's ugly. Ok, I know it's a petty criticism, but it looks like a Blackberry app from 2010.
You definitely get your $2 worth for this app, but in the end, privacy concerns and the broken voice summaries are deal-breakers.
Good and simple!
If you want just a no nonsense way to track your bike ride: time, speed, distance and don't want all the junk that comes along with apps like mapmyride then this app is perfect. Also it won't drain your battery at all. I tracked on a 7 mile trail thru the woods with poor cell signal and my iPhone still showed 100% after completing the ride using this app. Very happy with this. Definitely worth a $1.99 to me!
Ps. To the reviewer who said that false starts etc. can't be deleted...all you do is slide your finger to the left on that particular stat and the delete button pops up.
Functional but not fancy
Mostly I like this app because it doesn't have a lot of bells and whistles. My previous app had bells and whistles galore but I couldn't figure out how to use it and the developers didn't include any instructions or a way to reach them to ask.
Biggest complaint I have with the app is the on/off functionality on the GPS. As others have mentioned it would be nice to have the option to use location services only when the app is in use.
Definitely worth the price for what it is and I've recommended it to friends.
