iPhone apps that make cycling adventures better
As you can tell, I love my iPhone and now that there are custom apps you can do all kinds of neat stuff. Besides having the ability to take calls and snap photos, the apps bring real power to this phone.
Here are some of my favorite ride supporting apps:
This app collects GPS information and has 4 main components. 1. A dashboard that is customizable where you can see things like: Average Speed, Altitude, Bearing
2. Ability to record tracks so that you can publish a journey.
3. A waymark recording screen to save a location.
4. A map view.
This is the official app from GroundSpeak. Makes it easy to look for caches nearby.
This is an app to calculate your nearest Geohash locations and map them.
There is more accurate weather forecast info on Weather Underground but WeatherBug makes checking the rain and wind so easy.
This is a great app that allows you to record 'stuff' like pictures, text and voice notes. When making a note from the iPhone, it adds your location to the note.
