IpBike aims to be feature rich - comparing to stand alone bike computes its Garmin 810 class rather than Garmin 200 or 500. If you want a simple app please look else where. If you want lots of features please be prepared to take time to learn how to use them see http://www.iforpowell.com/cms/index.php?page=help


The free version of IpBike is limited to one million wheel revolutions (or equivalent in gps only mode 2070mm wheel). For permanent use after this you will need to get the IpBikeKey app which will unlock this limitation.

IpBike uses IpSensorMan to provide access to ANT+, Btle and BlueTooth sensors. If you have a compatible phone and do not have IpSensorMan installed you will be prompted to install it. You can use an ANT USB Stick if your phone supports USB host mode. For Hrv Muscle Oxygen and Btle you need the beta version see http://www.iforpowell.com/cms/index.php?page=IpSensorMan-beta

    Pros... Shed load of options. Works great for BOTH Ant+ & Bluetooth sensors meaning it's great for S&C & HRM compatibility. Cons... None really!! Although if I'm going to be picky, like others, the UI takes a few days to get to grips with but the level of complexity allows true customization. You can't have simplicity & complexity in one package. I love this app & well worth the asking price!! :)

    This is perfect when used with my cycle rollers. One question. Is there a way to display the time in use to save me having to run another stopwatch?

    Love this app. Better than some of the premium ones imho. Works perfectly with Galaxy S4 and bontrager combo sensor.

    And there was me thinking that fell runners spent all their free time down the pub. Or maybe that's just HBT. Great, now I can use my phone and ANT+ HR gubbins to track how old and unfit I am rather than spend good beer money on a new Garmin! Cheers

    I wish this app looked better. It works quite smooth and has impressive details to be configured, but the look of interface is hard to look at. Especially dashboard where numbers run all together with no margins and control buttons.. come on, if that looked nice it would be the best cycling app.
