The nicest way to get around Minneapolis just got nicer!
Located in Minneapolis MN, Nice Ride is the nation's largest bike sharing program. Now with 'Nice Ride MN - Map and Timer', you can check the status of the 65 bike kiosks on the go and time your rides to avoid ever paying a trip fee!
The 'Map' tab shows you the real time status of all 65 stations and your current location. Use it to find the closest bike or dock to your location.

Good, but wants excessive location data
The app works well, showing where bike racks are nearby and how many bikes and empty slots are available.
However the only location service options are none and always. If I don't have an app up and running in the foreground I don't want to share that data.
This app is garbage
This app is aggressively terrible. I've seen better apps come from high school projects. Use Spotcycle, it's about 10,000 times better.
1) Location access cannot be set to only while the app is in use. This is a deal breaker right there.
2) App doesn't scale properly on iPhone 6s Plus. This is basic stuff people!
3) "Oh great a timer, that is so handy because my phone doesn't already have that feature," said no one ever.
4) At least the app developer's logo is prominently displayed so that in the future I can avoid them like the plague.
Simple and to the point.
Great service, solid app. Could ask for a few additional features, but it serves its purpose.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
