What's New in Version 3.4.1
Bug fixes and minor improvements
Great for tourists
We used spotcycle on our recent trip to DC and it worked great! We tried to keep the cost low (and plug on every 30 minutes) and this app was perfect for that- letting know how many bikes were available as well as how many docks were open. We HIGHLY recommend this app.
Great at finding the location stations and count of bikes.
Design wise, it could be more like CitiBike's beautiful app.
Would be cool if a notification would pop up every 10-15 min of my timer/time left using the bike.
iOS 7.03 Hands down best app for B-cycle systems. I should know, why? We use it exclusively for field operations on one and love it.
