OK. I've updated both apps based on feedback and some UI enhancements I wanted to make. They'll update on your devices once Apple approves the updates. It may be Monday or Tuesday.

Let me know what you think

Hey Carelton. The thing won't let me send PM's, but I paid for the apps. Thanks for the links! I must have missed them in the thread or something.

The updates that I submitted last night were just approved. So, you guys should see them updated soon. Not sure how long it takes to happen.

@Bulldogsprinter, with this update you can enter your monster 57t chainring

I have updated both apps.

I fixed a small bug and updated the UI to both apps.



Thoughts, suggestions, comments, and ratings are greatly appreciated

Hi Carlton, I just got both the apps, am looking at them to see what they offer. I can't find a setting to connect to Bluetooth or Ant+ sensors.
How would this connect to the cadence? And is it possible to analyze the heart rate along with as well?

Hy, Myth. Currently I don't record any data from live sensors. All of the input is manual. I've had dreams of making a head unit and I have some prototypes, but they apps currently don't do anything like that.

The cadence meter works by you watching a rider and tapping the button every time their foot does a full circle.

Hey @carleton, any chance of adding a 34t chainring onto the road gear options? Am running a compact crank..

(used your timer app yesterday to time some newbies our club was introducing to the track - loving the count-down timer as well as the ability to customize to track length etc.)

Hey. Definitely!

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll do the update tonight and hopefully Apple will push the update by the end of the week.

Be cool if you could set up the stop watch for different length tracks to get lap and half lap splits.

OK. I've completed the update implemented your suggestion among others. Here are the update notes:

- Added support for:
- - Track Chainrings: 40 - 64t
- - Track Cogs: 10 - 20t
- - Road Chainrings: 34 - 60t
- - Road Cogs: 11 - 32
- Replaced switches with check marks
- Refactored code to shrink install size.


It's out of my hands now. Apple should push the update within a week depending on how busy their backlog is.
