Feedback please

I thought I already wrote a really positive review a few years ago but can’t find any trace of this now.
There’s some caveats to a full glowing endorsement however and I’d like to outline a few here and hopefully get a response please. Then I could write from a more informed perspective.

1. I can’t find how to reverse a journey anymore. I used to do this easily but I’d forgotten until I saw it mentioned in another review
2. It would be great to have alternative routes offered for journeys. Sometimes I’d prefer to avoid the cycle “superhighways”
3. I’d frequently like to give simple feedback on minor route improvements I see as I go along but it looks like one always has to writ a review of the app to do this - not the most user friendly way to communicate.
4. I’m sure I upgraded from the free version but am not sure. There’s no ads but I can’t seem to find anything in account info. (Perhaps I haven’t looked hard enough?) Also, I’m considering taking out the subscription but can’t find anything actually outlining the Ezra features available - except voice directions which I’m not particularly interested in. Is there something on this available? (Nothing in the AppStore I can find.
Lastly, just thank you. It’s a great app I use almost daily as I go to different parts of town for jobs. I have seen so many new routes and parts of London which I never knew existed or where they were, and it’s just very functional as is required.

Developer Response ,

Hi - thank you for your kind words. Feel free to contact us at for more details. To answer your questions:

1. You can reverse a journey by going to edit and reorder the waypoints. The edit menu appears when you have the route open.
2. We don't offer alternatives.. at the moment. You can change your route type by going to menu -> settings -> route though
3. You're absolutely right. We will be offering a way to submit route feedback but it's not available yet.
4. If you don't have ads you're upgraded - thank you so much! A subscription gets you: no ads, Apple Watch app, route recalculation while cycling, voice instructions and more features that are coming very soon. You can see what features are available by going to menu -> upgrade -> more.

Thanks again!

Apple watch app very disappointing

I was originally very happy that I found an app that allows cycling navigation using the Apple Watch. Except that, unfortunately, it doesn't – and it's due to trivial problems that indicate the developers haven't really road tested their app:
1. Why do you get some random orange dots instead of a line on the watch to show your way – I assume that this for some technical reason but it's not intuitive at all
2. For some unexplainable reason, the developers have chosen each route segment to be one straight segment. So, on the watch, you will always see the route until the next crossing. That's where the last of the "orange dots" is. Then you're left to guess – right, left or straight? No, the app won't automatically show the next segment when you arrive at the crossing, it will only show that a while later. So each time you arrive at a crossing, you try to guess only for – TADANG – the app to tell you 30 seconds later that you went wrong.
This app has probably caused the most frustrating cycling experience I have ever had in London. Quite frankly, it's easier to just use Google Maps and look at your phone at every crossing instead of using the Apple Watch app. Luckily I was still able to return my money.

Great routes, clunky UI

Have used the app several times to plan long-ish point to point rides around Yorkshire (50-80 miles) and it always comes up with quiet routes that are a pleasure to ride. It finds roads I’ve never used even quite close to home.

Where Google Maps is a lottery for cyclists - you often find yourself on fast A Roads or on rough tracks on a road bike - CycleMaps is extremely reliable. I like the fact that you can toggle cycle paths on and off, depending on your choice of bike.

Battery usage is reasonable for an app of this type.

I’m less keen on the UI which I find quite counterintuitive. Each time I come to use the app I’ve forgotten how to plan routes (ie not just starting from where I am now) and it can take several minutes to figure it out. Not sure why I get so confused, but it suggests that the app could be built better. Google Maps is *much* better at this - indeed any other Navigation app I’ve used.

Finally, I’ve noticed that the app occasionally freezes while searching for routes, but I’ve not had this problem while en route.

I haven’t yet paid for the ad free version, mainly because of the UI issues, but I would like to support the work the developers are doing, so I will do so now. Keep up the good work!

Developer Response ,

yeah, we know the UI is not as good as it could be, especially when planning a route starting from a different location to where you are. We're working on improving this and thank you very much for the review and support.
