This app is the schizm. It offers dope functionality to organize and participate in rides plus I use it as an online hub to meet and ride with other bikers. I also love that they gamify our passion as you can participate in challenges. Should you try this app out? YERP!
TL;DR: 1) App will NOT run at all w/o GPS enabled. 2) You cannot not save an interrupted ride w/o resuming the ride from your current location first. 3) Deleting a post from the app does not seem to work. The most glaring flaw with the app is that it requires that your have GPS enabled to even look at your dashboard. For the mapping features, this is obviously needed but it should not be needed to just play with the app itself. As such, I refuse to run the app while at home or work because I don't know how the app is using that GPS-enabled location. Is it broadcast it to other riders or just ESR? The 2nd big issue is that if you have a ride interrupted (e.g. phone died), when you attempt to look at the ride, the app only gives you the option to Resume or Discard. If you select Discard, then the app deletes the ride. If you select Resume, then the app starts recording the current location information in your ride. This results in a ride map that has an unnecessary huge time/location jump. Luckily, you can trim that map before posting but it has the same privacy concerns as the always on GPS. Third, deleting a post requires going to the website. Could not delete via the app.
Love the app only problem I have doesn't update dashboard after a ride still says I have done 0. Even though I saved my ride.
Needs stability for a better working app..lots of great features..just needs to work
Crashes on start up
Like it so far. Waiting to ride.
We've worked to improve stability, especially around detecting challenge points for riders doing multiple challenges.
