A new GPS app for cyclists was released earlier this week and our first response is good. We’ve been underwhelmed by most cycling apps and didn’t like Bike Your Drive very much. Bike My Way records your rides and you can annotate waypoints with photos and notes. The best feature is the export to GPX files that you can them import into other apps, including Aperture 3 and then apply that track to your photos.
While the app will record your entire ride, we likely wouldn’t do that to spare the battery. Instead, just record waypoints along the ride.
We’ll use this with our Biologic iPhone mount when we ride the Mobile Social in Portland during Webvisions next month. Bike My Way is available in the iTunes Store for 1.99. It only works with the 3G and 3Gs phones.
