I've had a few questions about the 'nearby routes' feature.

Just to clarify, the 'Location Services' on your device must be switched on for this to work, if you're not sure what that is, this is how you check:

iPhone -> Settings -> General -> Location Services -> ON

Start BBR App, allow location services.

Also I've fixed the d/l of waypoints on the main site as of yesterday (another midnight fix [IMG]images/smilies/smile.gif[/IMG])

Enjoy the sun if you're not already.

Please note for iPhone 4 users, there is currently a problem with the routes 'near me' feature for this version of the iPhone. An update is just being submitted to apple with a fix for this and a couple of other little fixes.

Yes, it works on iPad. Depending on which iPad you have, you may find location based services work or do not.

Hope you like the App

Daily App Review Vid and updates

Thanks to all those who've bought and given feedback for the app up to now.

A couple of the big app review websites have got a hold of the app now so there is quite an interesting video review of the app here if you're interested to know more about the app or see it in action:

Also the iPhone 4, map zoom and location issues have been fixed in the latest release. I hope you enjoy the fruits of my labor :)
