** Update **
Squashed a bug where the location marker on the altitude profile along the bottom would disappear or end up in the wrong place.
** Previously **
Just a little spit and polish:
- Tweaked the layout of the buttons at the top to make a bit more room for the map
- Moved the 'find me' button down to the bottom right, to make it easier to tap
- Made the altitude profile along the bottom a little less jagged, and when it's flat, it looks flat
- Sped up appearance of the search window

Great for planning routes....
Great for planning routes, very precise with mileage from a to b with pin on map, recommend it, also use google maps along with it to see the difference between routes.
CycleStreets jazzed up
This app basically relies on the tried-and-tested CycleStreets routing algorithms, dolled up with a slick interface. Planning a journey is simplicity itself: a single dialogue box allows you to fill in both From and To locations, and lets you set routing difficulty and other options. The vector maps are unusually pretty, and the fact that the altitude profile of found routes doubles as a scrubber, allowing you to quickly scroll through the entire route, is an excellent touch. (One tiny inconsistency in spelling: the 1.2.0 release uses both “kilometres” and “meters”, not that most people will notice the re/er switch.)
If that’s all you want out of a cycling planner, you’ll be delighted, but ultimately this is a somewhat limited app. I’d rather go with the dowdy and rather annoying CycleStreets original for detailed route breakdowns and cycle-centric mapping layers. The fact is, sadly, that the killer cycling routing app has yet to be made.
Very effective. Could do with some more extra features
The app works really well. On quiet route setting It still sometimes takes me down roads that are a little too busy in London so there is no substitute for a human working out a route but overall it’s been incredibly useful. The “find me” location feature is helpful but some extra features like a record of your route, average speed, highest speed (when using location) , etc would have been nice but for a free app you can’t really complain.
