Repetitions can be counts or till time or distance targets. Support for FIT workout format file import and export. Feedback on target and progress.

Text to speech audio feedback available with customisation over what is read back and when.

IpBike aims to be feature rich - comparing to stand alone bike computes its Garmin 810 class rather than Garmin 200 or 500. If you want a simple app please look else where. If you want lots of features please be prepared to take time to learn how to use them see http://www.iforpowell.com/cms/index.php?page=help

Limitations.

The free version of IpBike is limited to one million wheel revolutions (or equivalent in gps only mode 2070mm wheel). For permanent use after this you will need to get the IpBikeKey app which will unlock this limitation.

IpBike uses IpSensorMan to provide access to ANT+, Btle and BlueTooth sensors. If you have a compatible phone and do not have IpSensorMan installed you will be prompted to install it. You can use an ANT USB Stick if your phone supports USB host mode. For Hrv, Muscle Oxygen, Remote Control, FEC, Suspension, Bike light, Shifting and Btle you need the beta version see http://www.iforpowell.com/cms/index.php?page=IpSensorMan-beta

If IpBike fails to start up on your device the most common cause is an issue with the Google maps setup. The release page has a version without Google Maps support you can try. http://www.iforpowell.com/cms/index.php?page=releases

Reviews From google play store

Update - used the app for my first "real" training ride today. I created a workout that I would follow, and the app far exceeded my expectations! This mean that I just saved myself over €300 buying a cycling computer! Very, very complete app for cycling. What attracted me first to the app was the support for ANT sensors, but what really blew my mind is how super configurable the app is, its functionality and the incredible feedback data it provides.


Such a well-designed and well-developed app. Continuously updated. Fantastic support from owner/developer. Super feature-rich. Just all-around awesome!


Based upon the unpolished appearance of the interface, the somewhat complex startup and miscellaneous usability issues, I initially wasn't sure about this app. After spending some time with it, however, I'm realizing this thing is incredibly powerful. Power balance and pedal stroke analysis, and other advanced features like HR variability, access to my phone's built in barometer, etc. etc. It not only replaces a bike computer for 8 dollars, it has tremendous customization potential. Bravo!


I use my phone as my bike computer. When I purchased Garmin Vector 3 pedals the documentation didn't say that you couldn't calibrate them using the Garmin Connect app. I looked all over, and tried just about everything... This app was the only one that could calibrate my pedals. Well done, and thank you!


I write this negative review hoping the developer can solve the issue: the app detects the Garmin HRM but after few seconds it stops working. I've tried changing the HRM battery without any change.


Much more reliable than my Garmin Edge. It doesn't do turn by turn navigation but you can follow a track. I'm using a Samsung phone. Most Samsung phones have ANT. Garmin drops sensors. This doesn't. It integrates nicely with Strava. Highly recommended.


A complete load if rubbish. To set the app up you need a degree in cycling science. The first time I used was a 2.5 hour ride. The only thing recorded accurately was the distance. It only showed me as having 20 active time and thus an average speed if 192km / hour. Today it didn't record anything for a 60km ride. So complete and utter rubbish. Uninstalled the app after today's ride.


Edit after dev's response: my experience is much like that of Jm Braz's. IpSensorMan sees the sensors as active (HR, Speed&Cadence, Power) but IpBike only will show some of them. The issue appeared today after adding a custom HR block to the display. After 30mins trying to make it work, I solved by restoring a previous App+Data backup that I made with TitaniumBackup. Recap: (1) IpSensorMan saw all ANT+ sensors, (2) another app could access Power/HR from ANT+ normally, (3) at the same time IpBike couldn't. At one point there seemingly was no way for IpBike to "see" HR. Start/Stop sensors from IpBike seems unreliable. Then at some point it didn't see the power sensor, which IpSensorMan could instead see just fine. I get it that automatically picking up the signal is a cool feature, but there should be a fail safe mechanism that allows more feedback on why some active sensors are not being displayed. Other than that, the app is extremely fully featured. Good that the developer is responsive, too.


has a couple quirky issues, terrible interface instruction manual so you have to work things out yourself, but I have been using for several years riding 3-4 times a week, and I love it. Sits on my Samsung Note 8, large screen, right on my bars. Gives lots of biometrics, ...speed, distance, cadence, heart rate, max hr, nav, maps, altitude, grade, and more...its great!


Once you get used to ipBike you would never consider paying for a dedicated bike computer! The only advantage there would be a daylight readable LCD screen but you should be looking at the road not a screen! This just needs a finger tap to bring up the screen when you need it. The voice prompts make that fairly unnecessary. Grab an old(ish) phone (I'm using an S3) a cheap SIM service provider, a weather proof case for bike mounting, this app and you've saved yourself a lot of money.
