TSS
Power Balance
Torque Effectiveness
Pedal Smoothness
Pedalling %

Mapping support is either online or offline using Mobile Atlas Creator or MapsForge .map files.
You can upload .fit .gpx or .kml route files to follow as you ride.

Real time plot available with your critical stats updated as you ride.

Multi step workouts can be designed with time, distance, heart rate or power based durations. Targets can be power, cadence, heart rate or speed based. 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 and Btle you need the beta version see http://www.iforpowell.com/cms/index.php?page=IpSensorMan-beta

Great and customizable ! works with btooth sensors on Android! At first glance it appeared chintzy, but it is highly customizable and one of the FEW that works with bluetooth LE sensors on Android. Once the locating is done the first time it seems to sync up well. I am impressed! I USED to use MapMyRide But no more! They are pretty set in their app and dont want to broaden it into the Android market. It took me a bit to get used to it and its many options and I feel that I have just started learning it. Nice Job I will be buying the full app! I am using a Nexus 5 phone and aScoche Rythem+ bluetooth heart monitor and a Jarv BT cadence and speed sensor. They all work great.

Must have app! Simply the best in class. I got a Samsung Galaxy S5 Active smartphone the day they came out. I believe that ANT+ and BTle devices coupled with smartphones are the future for bike instrumentation. I had an ANT+ heart rate monitor and ordered an ANT+ speed/cadence sensor along with a weatherproof handlebar mount (solves the wet screen issue). Now I have TMI (too much information). The automated functions work well and you have complete manual control for relentless tweakers like me. The multiple screens allow you to switch quickly from the minimum to maximum information overload. Screens are highly customizable and result in seeing the information you want to see and how you want to see it. In my short time using the product I have seen the developer show a dedication to making a robust, sophisticated and evolving product. This is the app of the future for Bikers, runners and hikers.

Brilliant! I'm using a Wahoo Blue SC Bluetooth LE Speed/Cadence sensor and the recent Beta release for support of BTLE works flawlessly for me on my S4. Also old Bluetooth 2.0 HR sensor works. Love the huge level of customisation available and all the available data metrics, mapping, plotting, etc. The ease of uploading to my Strava account is very handy.

Good, but... It will be good to implement "auto-resume" option and fix bug with "auto rotate" - when switched on it is impossible to move map adequately.
