    What is your favorite iPhone app if you use your phone on your bike?

    I currently use RunKeeper because I also jog as well as bike. But my only complaint about the RunKeeper app for the bike is that it does not display my speed.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks,
    Brad

    I use runkeeper on an iphone and it shows my speed, distance, time, average mph and calories. What do you see on the screen while biking?

    I use BikeDaddy. It has a really uncluttered interface and for only 3 bucks, you can't go wrong.

    I use Ride with GPS, seems pretty good to me...
    He uses statistics as a drunken man uses lamp-posts...for support rather than illumination. I do like my beer, so sometimes I do end up leaning on the lamp-post...

    I started using Strava until I got a Wahoo Tickr HRM. Now I use Wahoo Fitness and uploading to Strava.

    I figured it out. I had it set to display pace rather than speed.


    Doh!

    Cyclemeter.

    Except for those rare anomalies where it says I hit 40mph (Nope. No way.) or suddenly ascended 740 feet (In New Orleans??!), I have no complaints. Does absolutely everything I need it to do.

    For now I'm going to stick with RunKeeper now that I (at least I think) figured out how to track my speed by MPH. I like that I can use it to track my running, time in the gym, and biking all in one app. I'm sure others do as well, but I have been using RK now for almost 3 years. So a lot of data on file.

    Thanks for all the replies!

    One nice think with RunKeeper is that you can export your data to use in another app.

    I've been using MapMyRide+ ... it has a lot of good features and I've been planning on upgrading to start using a Wahoo BT speed/cadence and HR sensor along with the Reflkt display unit to save my battery. Viewing the info directly on the phone (keeping the screen on and bright enough to actually read) nearly drains the whole battery in about an hour! Keeping the display off (using the Reflkt for display) drops battery drain to only 15%-20% for an hour of cycling.

    Are you riding with bright sunlight? I ride right after sunrise and find that I can dim the screen to about 30% brightness with the Wahoo Fitness app. The app is quite bright and easily visible. This usually drains my batter about 20% per hour.

    Hmmm... Looks interesting. I'm going to have to place the Wahoo RFLKT+ on my Christmas list.

    I have been using MapMyRide as well and bought a pocket to put the phone on the top cross bar. I can hear the splits and don't worry about looking at the phone until I get home. I rode 48 mile (my longest so far) on Sunday and was down to 14% on the battery when I got home. I am scheduled to get a new phone in September.
