IpBike aims to be feature rich - comparing to stand alone bike computes its Garmin 820 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.
If IpBike fails to start up on your device the most common cause is an issue with the Google maps setup. The release page has a version without Google Maps support you can try.
