iOS 8 fix for requesting location services authorization
I'm glad they finally updated this app so it is at least usable on the newer phones. Basic functionality such as checking dock availability works fine. However there are some problems. The most serious is that directions seem to use driving directions rather than biking. In Denver is takes me on Speer Blvd rather than the cherry creek bike path which is insane.
I've tried most of the bike sharing apps and my favorite so far is "Get There By Bike." It costs a buck but includes bike lanes and biking directions that seem way more accurate.
More useful map than official app
It's very useful to find stations nearby. Easy to see at a glance if there are bikes or docks available at each station.
I don't use the directions feature at all, but agree that it should be bike directions not car directions. Maybe add a button to "navigate in Google" which has the best bike directions in Denver.
Good app. Much better than the official app.
Great -- but location always?
Love this app. It is very convenient, and I love that it works in multiple cities. However, I don't understand why the app wants to use location services even when closed. Really? Most apps these days have the option to use my location only when open, which is really all this app should need. If they fix that location thing, I would give the app 5 stars.
