Bike Tool Web AppNot that anybody except my brother uses it anymore, but I have this online bike stats tool that I created years ago. I used to log all of my rides, and a handful of other people used the tool as well.
After sitting untouched for more than a year, I made some improvements tonight. Mostly I created an iPhone version of the page where you enter rides. I took a short ride tonight after work and entered the stats, but the existing page was not very easy to use with my tired hands.
Apple gives developers a few options for web apps. The one I chose is a simple implementation that lets all mobile phone users access the tools but provides some extra benefits for iPhone users.
To use the web app, visit this page on an iPhone: http://www.daveheinzel.com/bike/edit/
Then click the '+' symbol at the center of the bottom toolbar, then choose the option called 'Add to Home Screen.' This will save an icon to your home screen that will launch in a very app-like way. It has a loading screen and everything. Here are some screenshots:
So that's it. There's not a whole lot else that I changed, other than a couple details. I hope to get back on the bike more this year and continue to log my rides. Maybe some of you will be encouraged to try out the tool - please feel free to sign up for a free account at my site if you want. It's free and easy to use for the most part.
