App Store Description

MyBikeRides is a fun and easy to use iPhone app for tracking your biking activities. It provides advantages over other GPS-based apps:

• Easier to use with an auto-pause feature
• Does not require WiFi or cellular connection
• No logon required and all data is stored locally
• Record waypoints with optional photos
• Can get you “Back on Time” or “Back by Dark”
• Allows you to trace your way back
• A GPS auto shut-off battery saver
• App can be resumed if terminated for any reason

Just tap “Start” and the app does the rest. There is no account setup required. No registration required. The app does not even require a WiFi or cell phone connection, just a GPS signal. MyBikeRides operates in the background so you can use your iPhone to make and receive phone calls, play music, or run other apps all the while MyBikeRides is tracking your activity.

MyBikeRides has an auto-pause feature that allows you to pause up to 60 minutes (by default, settable to 5-60 minutes in Settings) before the app asks you if your activity has “Ended?” With Auto Pause, only the time you are actively moving is used to calculate your average speed.

With MyBikeRides you are never lost! You can request the app to retrace your route back to where you started even if you do not have any network connection. It will let you know when you are on-track and alert you if you should get off the trail back. Even if you accidentally terminate the app or if the app gets terminated by the system, the app can be resumed and show you the way back.

Have you ever got caught out after it’s too dark to see or got back late. This is because you didn’t know when to head-back. With MyBikeRides, all you need to do is set the “Return Time” or select “Back by Dark” and it does the rest. It alerts you when it is time to head-back, displays how fast you need to go, and how fast you are currently going. It also displays an Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA) back at your starting point based on your current location and speed.

With MyBikeRides, you can set the “Return Time” when you start your activity or anytime during your activity and you can even choose a different route back and MyBikeRides can still get you back-on-time!

The app automatically saves your route map and activity details locally on your iPhone. You can share your route map and activity details via email or Facebook, The app can also assist you in marking any number of waypoints and allowing you to include any number of photos with each waypoint. At any time you can email the waypoint locations and optional photos to anyone. This is great to let others know about hazards, points of interest or setting a future meeting location.

MyBikeRides can automatically detects when you have ended your activity and shuts off the GPS to save your battery.
