Just bought this!
Are there any plans to perhaps include Google Latitude functionality in the future?

Thanks

Thanks for buying the app, I hope you like it.

Regarding the request, I'm not ruling anything out for an update but at the moment there are a few nice little extras that are going to be put in first

David

Looks Great!

David,

Thanks for letting me know about the Android app. I checked the website out and downloaded the android app. soon after. It looks very good and I'm sure there will be many more routes listed as more people hear about it and contribute. Thank you for your time and effort to make this available!!! In my view it's much cheaper than road maps and we get to have local people give us their incite to the best roads and routes in their areas. Much easier to find the fun roads on the fly!

Hi there,



I've just released an update for the Android version of this app which includes the following:
  • Info screen now allows for a preference choice between miles and kilometres for all units.
  • Each route now contains a web link to the web version of the route, allowing the following:
  • GPX format files of each route can be downloaded directly
  • Access to over 2000 route photos of motorcycle routes, added by the community.
  • Share your routes with biker friends who have different devices.
  • On Bike Film Footage of the route (where available)
  • Incorrect routes can be deleted
All the Best,

David

Just bought it

Installing now, looks good on the site. Loading up the local rides. So does this use the data service all the time, or can it cache maps locally? Service is kinda iffy in the best riding areas of MO. As an amateur android developer, am glad to see another biker interested in developing something useful while on the bike. Now if we can only get a good android bluetooth remote control like the iphone scosche one.

Hi Oh2RideMore,

Hope you like the app, I've tried to incorporate as many nice features as I can and at the same time keep the price reasonable.

Regarding the required connectivity, when discovering routes, the app needs to have a signal, as it is using the data from BestBikingRoads.com in realtime (hence there is a pretty good base of routes) of course not all areas have routes, but to my knowledge this is the largest bank of routes available anywhere and they are all personally administered by me (bike travel is a labour of love for me). This has the advantage that the app is relatively small on the device and the two way interaction between the Android App (and the iPhone App) as well as the main website give you benefit of updates to route data directly which as the database is expanding rapidly should mean the app only gets better with time (over 13,500 signups, 5400 route reviews and counting).

I am particularly happy with the latest update as it addresses some requests that were asked for by users as well as the simple and cool weblink which easily extends many of the powerful features of the website over to the app without a lot of expensive rework.

Feel free to keep the suggestions coming, you can always email them to me at 'david at bestbikingroads dot com'

Any kind words to any of your contacts or friends to help broaden the reach of the Android App a bit would be much appreciated.

All the Best

David
