Reading Time: 2 minutes

Here are some of the best cycling apps. You probably know about them. Well most of them. I bet you don’t know about IpBike. Super-cool as it supports ANT+ sensors on smartphones with native ANT+ eg Samsung S4 and above and sony Z3. I’ve added it to my recent list of most downloaded sports apps.

Strava Cycling (iOS, Android)

We all know and love Strava and it is getting ever-closer links with integration of elements of its functionality with the big boys…Garmin, Suunto, Polar and others.

Cyclemeter (iOS)

It’s got all the standard stuff and also LOTS of comparison charts/tools.

Endomondo (iOS, Android)

All the necessary stuff plus news feeds from your friends. (Do all your friends use Endomondo?)

IpBike  (Android)

ANT+ support…great. Landscape mode shown below with more data fields that even you need!


Map My Ride (iOS, Android)

Great with saving and sharing routes.

Hi Sir
IpBike includes in our last revision. We make the “league table” every six months http://blog.zitasport.com/4561/2015/04/06/las-apps-de-entrenamiento-outdoor-mas-descargadas-marzo-2015/.
Every october and march. Last revision is the fourth.


I have to give android app Ghostracer some love. It is a new-ish program that supports:
* dongle-less ANT+ on my Samsung TAB 4
* BT 4.0 on my Xperia Z (as well as can be expected, given BT 4.0’s connectivity issues)

Meanwhile it does the most important metric [time] better than anyone.

Have you looked at iSmoothRun (iOS and for running, cycling and other activities). Just started using it but love the audio feedback which most other apps charge a yearly subscription for – here its just a one time purchase of a $5 app. And it syncs with a ton of other app websites and devices.
