Speed - The GPS Speedometer
By Steven Troughton-Smith
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Speed is a drop-dead simple speedometer for iOS that uses the location data from the GPS to provide a near-accurate representation of how fast you're actually traveling.
Featuring lush graphics and a clear, legible display. Speed has an inbuilt compass and odometer/tripmeter. With support for miles, kilometers and knots, Speed is the perfect road, sea or air speedometer.
Simply swipe the screen upwards to reveal the settings pane.
New in 4.0, use the Watch app to quickly check your speed without taking out your iPhone - great for cyclists!
As this works using the GPS, you will have to be moving at a certain minimum speed for it to register - walking or running generally won't work. An iPhone or iPad WiFi+Cellular with a GPS is required for this app; it will not work with a WiFi-only iPad.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
STUCK AT 0?
Verify that you have allowed location services for Speed in the Settings application. Also make sure you have good GPS coverage!
What's New in Version 4.0
• Redesigned UI - a cleaner, more legible dial
• A new Apple Watch app to let you quickly check your speed without taking out your iPhone - great for cyclists
• Supports split-screen multitasking on iPad

Why did you take away the glass effect and replaced it with black?? YUK!
Love the simple design
It works very well and I use this app almost everyday. I like that I can use my watch now instead of mounting my phone up.
Suggestions I have for the next version. I like that the dial thing turns red when I reach 60mph. I go through 55mph zones a lot, so it's easy to notice when I'm speeding. Would be neat if it could automatically set what the speed limits are on different roads and change colors as I'm hitting the limit. Or at least give the option of setting this manually by swiping on my watch's or iPhone's screen. Adding on to that, how about some vibration feedback on the watch as I hit that speed limit so I can keep my eyes on the road rather than glancing at the watch every so often.
Anyway, this is easily my favorite speedometer app and I'm looking forward to any new version in the future. Doubt I'm ever going to get my car's speedometer fixed, might as well use something cooler.
