DriveBit

DriveBit


DriveBit is a simple application used to help in logging commutes to FitBit.com.

FitBit devices may misinterpret driving as steps and the only current workaround is to log the driving time as a driving activity on the FitBit site or via your mobile device. This can be an irritating task to have to repeat.

DriveBit is here to help. Simply launch the application, tap start when you start your commute and tap stop when you finish your commute. That's it! We'll keep track of how long the drive was and when it started and post the driving activity for you.

Settings allow you to select any of the transportation activity types or create your own activity type that you'd like to track.

DriveBit plugs into Locale and Tasker to allow you to start and stop drives based on any number of inputs (location, time, Wifi connection, etc.).

Drive bit also offers widgets to add to your home screen or lock screen for easy recording of your commutes.

Reasons for needed permissions:
- Full network access: This is so we can post your activities to FitBit.
- View network connections: This is so we figure out the best time to retry when a post fails.

Brilliant Stops the motorcycle adding thousands of steps each journey. Only issue you can't cancel if you accidently press start on the widget.

I can only drive or ride in a car once a day? I rode in a car twice today but the only one that registered is the latest one entered. What good is it if it doesn't register all my driving?

upload bug needs fixing This app usually works like a 5 star champ but just yesterday I couldn't upload data no matter how I tried! Switching to different Wi-Fi networks, using my mobile network...nothing worked. Reinstalling it seems to have fixed it but I did lose yesterday's data. An offline data backup option would be very handy in the future. I guess I'll have to take screencaps of my trips until I'm 100% sure it's been fixed in the next update or the developer gets back to me about a workaround.

Works Great I am very satisfied with the app. Since I can't turn off the fitbit, this lets me exempt my driving/travel time from the steps counted. I made a contribution to support this developer.
