This section is about developing news features about the service but also bug reports and anything which could make the service a better service 🙂
Please, comment, discuss, share ideas about how to make it better!
The dashboard is now much more simple! I wanted you to focus on the map which is the main way to find other cyclists! No super long cyclists list anymore. You will find a minimalist info panel to sort cyclists on the map. A super short list of last cyclists who updated their locations and another feature…
That new feature is a quick location update link. It allows you to access to your location button without going to the full dashboard. You must be logged of course. If you are using an Android mobile, go to your browser menu and select “Add to home screen”. If you are using an iPhone, tap bookmark and then select “Add to home screen”. On desktop, simply use your bookmarks system 🙂
Cheers to Stefan Miertschink who sent me the idea few month ago!
Locations are now displayed on user’s profile has a timeline in addition to the map.
You can delete specific locations in “edit your profile”.
You can now sort travelers by combining the distance filter (“around you”) and the activity filter (touring, having a break…) so you get a better and clearer view on both map and list 🙂
You can now keep the track of your journey! When updating your location, a line is draw between all previous locations so you remember where you were and other cyclists know where your went so far!
You can now add links to your profile separated by commas. Add you own blog or social pages!
Few bugs have been fixed too about geolocation, the marker shown on the map was not the last one.
When editing your profile, if you select you are touring, you can now indicate which direction you are heading to so other cyclists know if you are going their way or not! Your marker will appear with a little arrow on the map.
You can now select when editing your profiling what you are doing right now (bike touring, having a break off the saddle, preparing for a tour, not on a tour) so people know a bit more about you. This feature change your marker on the map.
Menu has been changed. Using a main menu and tabs was confusing for some of you. Bye bye tabs, only a main and simple menu to navigate!
When you sign in, your profil go to the top of the list so active people are more visible
