Our mobile app is nearing completion. Unfortunately the schedule slipped by a month as we were keen to complete our backend work to ensure the routing was fast enough to support it, something that is now in place. Also, we've been held up slightly by EXIF-related issues (so that uploaded photos get the correct position even if they were taken a while ago).

Here are screenshots from the latest work in progress, with a few bug fixes due to be implemented by mid-August before we submit to Apple.

Thanks to everyone who has offered to be a beta-tester. We'll be in touch soon – sorry for not acknowledging each offer individually yet!

We've lots of ideas for new features to go in a future release after the initial release. We'd like to create a team of two or three volunteers to work on the app on an ongoing basis. If you'd be interested, please do get in touch.

    Looks like an excellent job.   Lots of functions in there – don't hold back on release 1 just because some ideas aren't finished yet.

    Hi Pete,

    Just to reassure you:

    The beta is feature-complete, and we're not going to add any more functionality. It's strictly bug-fixing and stability work now.

    HI, have been beta testing.  It seems to  crash a lot, but when it does work the routes are good.  I have just used it to plan a regular route i do into central london.  It is a bit eccentric in its suggestions especially between quiet and quietest and does not seem to recognise all the paths you can or cannot cycle on.  This is a big deal in the royal parks, where they tend to be enforced quite strictly.
