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

    It will be good to implement "auto-resume" option and fix bug with "auto rotate" - when switched on it is impossible to move map adequately.

    I find it impossible to customize the display. I would like to set different metrics, but the help page seems to be outdated and the language is way too complicated for a noon tech person.

    I've tried Strava, mapmybike, wahoo and some others and none would work for me. I needed to connect my ant+ devices to my phone. Mapmyride would one connect to one device and it wouldn't connect automatically even with that setting turned on.

    Been looking for a way to unleash my phone to track my rides and this is it! No need to waste money on a bike computer. This does everything I wanted and then some. No more needless upgrades and regret being cost conscious and settling. I bought the lastest and greatest. Unlike others I don't mind the interface but wish the instructions are a bit more structured. Great work.

    Why carring your phone and your bike GPS when you can have both in one. The app does everything I wish and it is the only app that fit my needs. However settings are quite complex. I always need to go back to the online help to sort it out. And the look could be improved. Never the less functionality is 5 star.
