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

Great app. Generates lots of statistics, some of which I don't fully understand yet. Works just fine with my duotrap speed/cadence sensor and does not interfere with the on bike computer. Gives plenty of time to confirm how good it is before asking for the cost of a coffee to continue using it. Uploads seamlessly to Strava on request. My only possible complaint is that when giving its audible status updates it doesn't pause the background podcast when announcing average speed and total distance.


Been using this app for several years. It is incredibly thorough in measurements provided along with voice prompts. I am able to use it for rides, runs, and riding indoors on cycle rollers. The ability to read in my ANT+ HR, Speed, & Cadence data along with gps is perfect. Never leave home without it.


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!


used this for years, amazing app. but it no longer syncs with Fit (reconnected it and cleared IDs many times, it doesnt "fail" but fit never shows the ride. cleared data a few times too. For strava i get a persistant "status check" notification after an upload that eventually fails after about 12 hours even though the ride was sent to strava withing a few seconds of clicking upload. i cant dismiss or hide that notifcation while its there. fix these and its back to 5 stars for me.


I'm new to it but I really loved! I got it while I had to send my Wahoo Bold for warranty replacement. But this is much more complete. It's like a mobile Golden Cheetah: shows an endless amount of data and allows customization. The user interface isn't friendly, and setting up the screen's data fields is very tricky to learn. Some observations for improvement: -There's no 3sec avg power, only instant then 5. -You can't hold a field to move it to another spot. You must instead select another metric for it, and then do the same for the other field you wanted to swap it for. -When selecting what a field shows, theres no data category, just one huge list with all possibilities. Setting up the Bolt on Wahoo Elemnt app is much easier, for comparison. -There's a basic data group on the first page that seemingly cannot be changed. so the top 4 fields are always [speed/cad/power/HR] -Swapping pages is tricky -Getting rid of the map was tricky too. -How to turn off the voice sounds for auto-pause, start, etc?..


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.


I really like this app, it provides a lot of customization, and many useful data fields. Edit: I downloaded the beta version of the sensor Man app, now the power balance is working now! A few more things: When I use ipbike in split screen with a navigation app, ipbike freezes when the focus is on the other app. Regarding the auto pause: For example if I take a break at a Cafe and forget manually pausing, the gps will continue recording and I'll end up with like 2km of wonky gps movement


excelent. very good also with home trainer. mandatory speed |cadence sensor and hrm sensor. works great with ant+ sensors.


Great app , a little bit confusing at first until you get use to it, then you can set up you're own monitor preferences.


This app is so comprehensive and feature-rich that it is completely useless. It is extremely complicated and the least user-friendly app I have ever seen. There are so many features and most of them completely unneeded. Settings screen has many, many screens (and sub-screens and sub-sub-screens, etc.) to navigate to try to figure out how it works and how to get it to stop doing that thing that annoys you. Ultimately extremely time-consuming and frustrating!


Amazing app. I didn't think I'd ever have cause to use it - I used to use cyclestreets for navigation and just relied on my Garmin watch. However, after trying this, I'm not going back. I plan my route on cyclestreets main website (not mobile as no gpx export) and export to gpx. I can then import the gpx into ipbike. The map view is much clearer on ipbike than cyclestreets and I can clearly see my average power and all other important metrics. The colour scheme is good and easy to see in bright light. It works well if you have an ant+enabled phone or use an ant+ stick with OTG cable and ant+ radio service, ant+ USB service and ant+ plugins service installed. One of those apps (not related to the developer of ipbike) hadn't installed properly and the developer was very responsive and quick to help. Oh and battery life - my Moto G5 was at 75% after a 1 and a bit hour ride - easily good enough, especially if you have a lighweight additional power bank.


When I'm riding through town, the sun shining down on my phone's screen, handlebars shaking as I ride over various road debris, I shouldn't have to squint to see my speed. And I definitely don't care about calorie or incline at that moment. I need an app that gives me full control over the screen real estate to arrange the data elements as I see fit. I tried Green Tracks, Ride with GPS, "Move! Bike Computer," Urban Bike Computer, Bike Computer, BikeComputer, Bike map, Locus, Osmand, Maverick, and bikeometer. Many of these were well done. Most have excellent GPX tracking features, one has "bike bell" and flashlight buttons, many have social network integration....But each had one or more issues. A few were too expensive. Some provided no ride data at all. The ones which were data-centric generally gave me data I don't want. And crammed so much on the screen, the text was not easy to read. I kept installing, evaluating, and uninstalling one-by-one. Locus is the only one I kept for its navigation and GPX tools. All the others are gone. Searching and searching, I finally discovered IpBike - the BEST Bike Computer App in the Play Store!


Been using the App for a while now. I like its capabilities along with its flexibility. It helps me keep accurate track of my rides. There are a few items that are of concern. 1). For some reason doing the "Start Sensors" from IpBike or "Start Service" - "Search" from IpSensorMan does not activate all three of my Ant+ sensors, most times it will pick up two sensors, sometimes only one, but to my recollection it has never picked up all three simultaneously, and which ones it picks up is random (not 1 specific sensor is always left out... Cadence, Speed & Heartrate = all individual Wahoo products). My workaround is to up open IpSensorMan and manually open each sensor first, then back to IpBike to "Start Sensors" - "Start Trip". 2). Having to use the limited capability and and very dated UI that is OI File Manager specifically in order to import files into IpBike is a bit short sided. The ability to use a file browser/manager that is already installed on your device would be much better. 3). The Nag to purchase IpBike after every 100,000 wheel revolutions I could do without.


Once you understand how to use it, it is an amazing app; highly configurable and with more information than you will ever need. Recently tracked and logged a 5+ hr bike ride without issues.


Great cyklo computer, I can say the best one for Android for sure!


Best app, also, for running with Stryd power meter.


I've used it for years. It is my stay.


Outstanding app. Excellent value. A good substitute for much more expensive solutions in fact its more capable than many desktop aps. Lots of control and customization so it can get confusing but there are excellent help files. Easily upload your data to other programs (eg Strava).


Ditched MapMyRide for ipBike after installing new Ant+ sensors. Have been using it for a month, and wish I would have switched sooner. Love the customization options and workout detail. Thanks, Matt


Its not perfect, but you have sooooo much time to decide if its for you. It's not for people unable to fiddle with settings, there are so many adjustments available. Its a work of love if you have the time to invest.
