I love Nike+ GPS for tracking my runs and hikes. Very clean interface and super easy to use! I wish Nike would add cycling to the Nike+ GPS app, but until that day comes what are you using and what is the best Cycling App out there? I have an iPhone 4S.

61F and Sunny, went for my first ride of the year this morning. :-)

I use Runkeeper. It has a cycling option and you can add your commuting route so you can time yourself. I use it everyday. It also can autopost to twitter and facebook if you're into that sort of thing. I have the free version, but I think you get some more features with the paid (I don't feel like I'm missing anything.)

 I like the Automatic stop detection, my cateye has been doing that for years now.
TRACK

Cyclemeter continually records your time, location, distance, elevation, and speed - years of workouts only take up the space of a few songs. Stop and start recording on-screen, with your earphone remote, or with automatic stop detection. Also track heart rate, bike speed, and bike cadence using the Wahoo Fitness ANT+ system (purchased separately).

VISUALIZE

See your results on maps, graphs, and a calendar, and organized by routes and activities. Summarize your statistics by day, week, month, year, and overall. Analyze your split, interval, and zone performance.
  • Automatic stop detection removes stopped time from your statistics.
  • Remote control using your earphone remote keeps you from fumbling with your iPhone at the start and finish.
  • All of your workouts may be viewed by route or on a calendar, and summarized by day, week, month, year, and overall.
  • Import allows you to preload routes, or import other people's workouts to compete against.
  • Export allows you to save detail and summary information in CSV, GPX, and KML formats.
  • Ghost racing lets you compete against your best, median, and worst workouts, or against imported competitors.
  • Twitter, Facebook, dailymile, and email updates enable your friends to view your progress.
  • Google Maps are updated every few minutes to keep your friends and family informed of your location.
  • Spoken comments from your friends on Twitter, Facebook, and dailymile encourage you during workouts.

Another Vote for Cyclemeter- bought it about a year ago on recommendation from a friend.  Love it.  Talks to you in a very human sounding voice at the mile markers with contextual info on your ride.  I now use it to run as well.  Do it.

Cyclemeter is pretty great. I've logged thousands of miles with it and have found it reliable, easy to use, and feature-rich. I really like that you can set it to send email or twitter updates automatically at certain mileage intervals. This comes in handy when I'm on a 100-mile ride alone; at least if something happens my wife can check her email and see where I went down. ;-) 

It also allows automatic sharing of rides w/Dailymile if you're looking for a social aspect to it, sort of like what Nike+ offers. 

What Cyclemeter is missing is a way to track mileage or rides on different bikes. What I'd love is if they allowed you to tell the app what bikes you have and then for each ride you indicate which bike you're riding. Then, I'd love the app to include a database for each bike where you can enter the date and mileage you purchased a new tire, for example, and then you could track how many miles are on that tire (or chain, or recently trued wheel, or whatever) by tracking all your rides on that bike. The Bike Repair app does have a database for parts and bikes, but then you have to get the mileage from Cyclemeter or some other source, and that only works for one bike. 

I understand the Strava app offers pretty much all I'm looking for, but at $25/year or something like that, I guess I can do without it. 

UPDATE: I just checked on the Strava site for the first time since it was introduced a year or so ago and it looks like the free version does most of what I'd want. I don't know if they changed their plans or if I was just mistaken, but it definitely looks worth a look now....

I really like Cyclemeter and Dailymile :) I was not impressed with Strava. Happy Cycling!!

Has anyone corroborated the speed from the Cyclemeter app with any other apps or cycling computers?  

I started using Cyclemeter a couple weeks ago and today's ride history says I hit a fastest speed of 41.83 mph. I'm skeptical that I was going that fast especially as my next fastest was about 31mph. It was a quick ride this morning but not that quick!

ambimb - Cyclemeter lets you create new "Activity" entries to select and track. Just hit the "+/- Edit" button. I like to track my road bike and trail bike miles separately.

I use Cyclemeter. I love the graphs of elevation change (something EndoMondo doesn't do) and it has all the usual bells & whistles, many more than a normal person would use. Big, easy-to-see numbers. Settings for walking, skiing, motorcycling, etc. $2.99.

It does that - i think it gets off calibration and jumps - im learning to just deal with it happening from time to time
