CycleComputer works as advertised for me
I was skeptical about buying this app at first. I've read many reviews about others that flat out don't work. I also didn't see mph readings in any of the Screenshots, only kph. The display shown in the Screenshots, however, looked clear and legible, the best looking display of all the speedo apps for bicycles that I saw on iTunes. Plus, it was only 2 bucks.
I use this app in suburban Los Angeles on one of the new Verizon iPhone 4's. I secured the phone to the bike with zip ties around an iPhone belt clip/cover and the bike's stem (gooseneck). I then turned the phone to this app and I was able to set the display to digital and units to mph, just like I wanted.
As I pushed off and started peddling, 0mph was displayed for a couple of seconds. As I gained speed, the app lagged a bit (to catch up with me). I then kept to about 8mph and made a few tight turns. The app responded well. I then stopped and watched the app slow down to 0mph a couple of seconds later. I started forward again and I noticed that the phone was in direct sunshine, but the large mph indicator was clearly legible. The smaller numbers were hard to read, but I don't have the best eyesight in the world.
As I started, sped up, slowed down and stopped due to traffic conditions, the earlier lag seemed to go away, as if the app "learned" how to react to the phone's various sensors. Being in traffic, I would only glance down for a split second, but thats all it took for an mph reading. The other information, of course, takes a little concentration to read.
At the end of the ride, which was about 5 miles indicated and just under an hour, I put the phone on the charger. The green "juice" in the phone's battery condition display was at about three quarters. I then looked at the map function to see where I have been. It was totally accurate.
I highly recommend this app if it has the bells and whistles that you need and you don't need multitasking while the app is running.
