Bedno.com/bike : "Social Cycling System". Mobile tools for bicyclist masses.
Bedno.com/bike facilitates large bicycling events by broadcasting route, map, chatter, weather and more, for smartphones and text messaging. It also serves personal features such as ride recording, directions and points of interest.
Bedno.com/bike (formerly Chi.Bike and MassUp.us) began years ago (now in its sixth major version) to address shortage of Critical Mass printed maps by making them available online for iPhone and similar users, and as a communications supplement to the World Naked Bike ride. The system provides quick flyer views, turn-by-turn cues, and monitors text chatter broadcasting location en-route. It also gives weather, archives, etc all optimized from many years experience developing for mobile devices.
OLDER button added to Plots, for browsing history.
Full window area now used when accessed from PC. Also now widgetizable.
Implemented Sticky messages.
Added SPEEDOMETER display when using GPS auto-post.
Added live police radio scanner, even works on smartphones.
Added HEADING and CATCHUP compass-like functions, quickly shows directions.
Added NEARBY tool, plots important services such as bike shops, train stations, bars, etc.
But most immediately useful, there's now an "Uber" address so users no longer need remember what email to use. Simply text to email@example.com
firstname.lastname@example.org always refers to the CURRENT mass, either an active dated one or the default NOW fallback. This is as opposed to using a mass' specific address (such as ccm@), and applies to all features such as posting, commands, and follow.
So put email@example.com in your phone's contacts please.
Also a reminder, since I regularly hear assumptions that this is an iPhone app, MassUp.us can be used from any phone (or PC). Basic phones can simply use the text messaging. SmartPhones (including Droids) can use all features.
