Almost perfect

I’ve got a subscription and the range of films available is excellent. Have had no problems connecting my trainer or making use of AirPlay to display on my big TV. There are a few things I’d like to see in future updates to earn that fifth star...
My phone and iPad each have over 60Gb of free space, please allow me to download films to prevent some of the stuttering. My internet is fast but there’s still occasional screen freezing.
Give us an easy way to take screenshots of the beautiful scenery to share on social media.
There are other riders on course but their presence is limited to a little circle at the bottom of the screen... how about a graphic showing how far ahead/behind they are in metres for better competition?
Overall I am happy with the new app and hope that it continues to be developed

Still pathetic!

I want this app to be good, so I can use it in place of the truly excellent Tacx Cycling App, now removed by Garmin from the App Store. So every few months I buy a month subscription and give it another go. Been doing this for over a year now, and still this app is pathetic - I can’t get more than 5-10 minutes before the video freezes, never to be active again. How come I can use Zwift, Suffertest, Rouvy, FulGaz, Eurosport, TV Players and videos, with not the slightest problem on my (new, latest) iPad Pro yet this hopeless app never streams properly. And by the way, Garmin Support for iOS is also pathetic, I’ve been using iOS and beta testing sports training apps since 2011 so the advice for beginners you get (eg force quit all other apps, toggle bluetooth, make sure nothing else is connected to the Tacx, do a warmup to create a buffer, etc, etc) is of no use whatsoever. And the reason I keep reporting the same problem (Developer Response please note) is that ‘the problem’ has been apparent (many reviews, not just mine) and not fixed for well over a year now. Why not give us downloadable videos again (as for the desktop apps) so that we don’t have to temporarily load the same videos as a stream every time we use them. Maybe I’ll try again in a few months, because the Tacx Cycling App videos were the best I’ve used - they are just completely unusable in this useless app.

Mr Dean Cooper

This app has the potential to be way better than Zwift but it has none of the ease or accessibility.

Firstly you can not do everything at the Apple store. You have to google “ how do I join Tacx premium “ . Normally you can upgrade from the free app. In the app you get a notice that you need to go to premium but it doesn’t say how!

Second the app isn’t Mac book friendly and will not down load to Apple TV so you have to mirror from your phone. The free app platform looks different on a phone to a lap top. As a consequence when you ask for support they refer to app interfaces that may not be on your version of the app.

Third on the Tacx website it says if you have premium you can down load rides and store them to prevent internet problems . How do you do it? I can not see any where on the premium app that says “ download”

Fourth . The Tacx flux 2 is a nice bit of kit but it will only really log onto my phone. I woukd imagine iPad too. It doesn’t like lap tops or TVs . For some reason the iPhone appears to be the most accessible .

Fifth. The TV film is great but why not view other competitors rather than having lollipops all over the place obscuring the view ?

Sixth GPS or plan your own ride, brilliant, why not use a dot to chart progress rather than 3D blocks

It has loads of potential but it’s not easy to use or coordinated with Apple, clunky I would say. It all there to copy at Zwift but be loads better.
