Biologic shipped their new iOS app Bike Brain yesterday. It’s a companion to the iPhone Bike Mount and we took it out for a quick spin last night around Alki. First impressions are good. Swipe to change screens, informative map with compass view, and also a training mode that works with ANT+ devices.
Note the dexterity required to snap a screenshot while riding was considerable and NOT recommend.
We’ll ride more with the app this weekend and also post on the iBike Dash that we’ve gone on test too.
With all these new bike-related apps and cases, we expect the next-generation will focus on being aero. None of these cases have gone into a wind tunnel (yet) and I expect many cyclists are thinking “why buy a power meter computer for my bike, when I can just use my phone?” Or, why buy a Garmin for my Randonnee ride when I can use my iPhone with a case that connects to a dynamo hub, like the Reecharge.
Every time I post or mention a new app, I hear about apps I didn’t know about or someone’s fav. Tell us what bike apps you’re using.
