Ratings and Reviews
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
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.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your feedback, we are taking your suggestion into consideration for our product backlog.
Really recommend the Tacx Desktop app for MacBook
It is now over 4 years since I got my first Tacx trainer. It has been life changing for me. There have been quite a few snags along the way as the software has progressed especially for Mac users. I stress that I have not used the iPhone or iPad app much but I have used the MacBook software frequently throughout these 4 years.
I upgraded to a Tacx Neo trainer 2 years ago and it is terrific.
Tacx have really come out of a tunnel with the latest subscription software for the MacBook available as a free download.
It all works very reliably. You download films in high quality (up to 1080p) and cycle away in the safety of your own home. You can see the route profile as you go. Together with changing incline data and film of the road ahead you can easily decide how much of the hill lies ahead. That is unlike when outside the crest of a hill seems to be always somewhere round the next corner.
I can’t praise this Tacx Neo trainer and supporting software too highly. Don’t be put off by adverse reviews for the app for iPhone or iPad. In my opinion the Desktop app is in a completely different catalogue.
Final suggestion is to use an HDMI cable from your Mac to a TV to get an enhanced view.
