iPhone app aims to be your clever mate

Bike hub app

The iPhone app I commissioned for Bike Hub, the bicycle levy fund, went live late on Saturday night. Amazingly, on Sunday, the app was used to plan 898 cycle journeys; 22,543kms of back-streets, cut-throughs and, of course, roads of all sorts.

This back-end data was supplied by Cyclestreets, the clever routing service.

Using the Bike Hub journey planning app is like being able to call on a friend who knows all the clever short-cuts. And the nearest bike shops.

It’s iPhone only for now but, if the app is a screaming success (you could help, please rate it on iTunes), then there will be an Android version, too.
