B-cycle is a next-gen bike-sharing system. In layman’s terms: B-cycles are magic bikes that are there when you want one and gone when you don’t. Just swipe your card, grab a bike, and get to where you’re going.
With this app you can search for a B-station that is closest to you. Real time stats let you know whether there are available bikes or docks. You can also vote for your current location for the spot of a future B-station!
What's New in Version 2.0.1
Added the ability to select a program across the nation.
Modified text to better reflect specific kiosk traits.
Added support for iPhone 5.
I am not sure why the other reviewer had such a problem. I had no trouble at all going right to my exact location and finding the nearest B-cycle. The map shows you all of the stations. Just tap on the icon closest to you and it will tell you how many bikes are available and how many docking stations are open.
Ok, so I read the reviews about the app opening up on the coast of Africa. I figured they had fixed it.... But no, mine opened in the middle of the ocean near Africa. I soon realized that you should pick out a bike program then it opens up in your city. Seems to work good at letting you know where stations are and how many bikes and empty slots are there.
Great program, not so great app.
Revised rating after realizing that the app works ok after you select "program" (ie your city) before the app will work. But still: if my GPS clearly tells you I'm in Denver, why do I have to tell you I'm looking for bikes in Denver before you'll stop zooming off the coast of Ghana? I'm clearly not looking for bikes in the Atlantic Ocean.
If I must select a program before the app will work, prompt me to do so. That's all it'd take to make this a 4 or 5 star review. B-Cycle is a great program, but app is lacking in clarity.
