Updated review: best cycling app. Period. I connected a Bluetooth cadence, speed/distance, and heart rate sensor (3 separate sensors) all at once, but you don't need any sensors to get speed and distance as you can rely on GPS if you get good GPS reception where you ride. Tons of features, basic features are intuitive but you can deep dive into more complicated stuff . . . Does more than you think at first glance. Tech support is top notch. Buy the license to support these folks!

I used to use a bike computer and pocket my phone. When I found this app the revelation of having your phone do everything a separate computer does (and more) was life changing. In addition all your phone functions right at your fingertips. This app is freaking amazing. Far more features than you could ever get on a bike computer and 10x the processing power. Next Step - Record rides on your phone with heads up display for playback later. That would be AWESOME.

After using it for some time now, I found that this app does not have auto pause and auto start which is very much needed in the city. I have been stoping it myself when I remember and sometimes forgot to restart which I hate. Also while pausing, I hac accidentally ended the run and started a new one without knowing, this is frustrating. Second update, I was promptly contacted by the developer which is a great plus and showed me that I was wrong and where to find the feature I was looking for.

Hi Steven, there *is* indeed such feature in the app - it's called 'Realtime auto pause' and can be found in Settings→Tracking. If you meant a feature that would turn GPS off while you're not moving, and then back on, sorry it's not possible to do this reliably without wireless sensors. Also, any ended track can be resumed. Thanks for the feedback!
