RAGBRAI iOS app puts the ride just a tap away



There are 10 days to go until RAGBRAI. Ten days to get familiar with RAGBRAI’s just-released app for iOS devices, stuffed with features to aid cyclists along their way — whether or not they have Internet access. The free app is available for download from the iTunes app store.

Take a guided video tour with RAGBRAI director T.J. Juskiewicz:

Here are some highlights:

MAPS FOR ANY SITUATION

Check your progress with Google maps showing your location; when there’s no signal, route maps are stored on your device for retrieval anytime.

OWN THE OVERNIGHT TOWNS

Link to entertainment listings, town websites and social media — and tap a button to bring up the weather forecast

PHOTO AND VIDEO GALLERIES

You can’t see everything. Catch up on highlights in constantly updated galleries — and you can also upload your own shots

What about the Android version that accounts for 70% of global phones?

Heh..we don’t count. I have 5 android devices at home and honestly, I have friends converting to Android even though they are highly invested in iTunes.

We’ll see…they have a week..maybe they’ll bring us something.

My first thought was we now will have even more riders looking at their phones instead of the road.

I have android and have managed many years without staring at my cell phone all week. I feel a bit sorry for those who do. Please keep your eyes up!

To date, Android has 52% market share, compared to iOS at 41.9%. Why are you building for the minority?

Please roll out an Android version before RAGBRAI. The crowd has spoken!

Android just copies whatever the iPhone does, so there should be an Android app in a couple of years. 😛

Seriously riders, it’s nothing more than an iOS shell around the RAGBRAI website. Not a big deal. You can get the same information and maps by going to http://www.ragbrai.com on your smartphone. Or you can cry about being second class citizens. Your choice. :-)

Its like you read my mind! You appear to grasp a lot approximately this, like you wrote the e-book in it or something. I feel that you simply can do with a few percent to drive the message house a bit, however other than that, this is excellent blog. A fantastic read. I will certainly be back.
