CycleStreets Update On the Way

A minor update for CycleStreets is on the way. This will fix an issue that users who used the "light" theme on their phone were having where some text was difficult to read or entirely invisible - particularly during the tutorial. We've also fixed an issue with the rate this app showing a place holder app name. Let us know what else you would like to see in the app

CycleStreets 1.3 Out Now

The latest update to CycleStreets is out now. We've done some significant work on improving the user interface for plotting routes in the directions screen as well as adding a quicker tap destination and find directions from my current location option on the home screen. I would really appreciate your feedback on this change and whether it improves things or not. Here is the full changelist:

WHAT'S NEW
1.3
- Improved the accuracy of the GPS
- Draw location accuracy around my location dot
- Fix for missing submit button in feedback form on some devices
- Reworked the route plotting and added "tap to add waypoint"
- Navigation and UI improvements on navigation page

A hotfix release will be available soon to fix OpenCycleMap overlays displaying OpenStreetMap overlays instead. 

As always we really do appreciate your feedback especially if you use the app regularly. I'm fixing things that annoy me when using the app but it is great to get feedback from other users. If you think the app is perfect as it is then don't forget to rate us 5* so other cyclists can find us easier. Thanks!

CycleStreets 1.2 available now

After much waiting and complaining in the reviews for the app, we are now able to provide map overlays in Cyclestreets. As great as they are for providing offline mapping and 3d imagery, the built in Nokia maps just don't provide enough detail when it comes to cycle routes so now you can add overlays from OpenStreetMaps and OpenCycleMaps. These show more useful information such as the National Cycle Network and points of interest appropriate to cyclists like bike shops. OCM maps also show the elevation of roads so you can see if the road will take you up a big hill. Send us some feedback or comment on the article if you have any feedback or suggestions for future versions
