Now you can manually check off all cols you have ridden! Of course you can still connect with Strava and let us do the checking off, but if you are not connected with Strava or you are missing some cols, you can now do it by yourself.
Ratings and ReviewsSee All
To start with the positives, the number of included cols and the way it shows the length and gradient for each is awesome. Unfortunately, there is no mode that lets you browse through the cols in the database. You have to rely on the search function and hoping that the col you are looking for is in the database. Additionally, the database of cols has not been updated since purchasing this app. Also, navigating through this app pulls from your data plan as the col profiles are not downloaded onto the phone. This has the potential to be a great app, but some reconstruction is necessary.
Good but needs attention
iCols is a well designed app and has an impressive database of climbs (cols) mostly in Europe. It's a unique resource in that regard. I fear, however, that the app has stagnated, having not been updated since the end of 2009. It is definitely in need of some work in the following areas:
- Update for iOS4 to take advantage of backgrounding/fast app switching. Currently it just restarts upon return to foreground :(
- Higher resolution icon and graphics for the iPhone 4 retina display.
- Integrate with social networks. Would be cool to share cols/routes I'm looking at with Facebook or Twitter.
- Crowdsourcing! Add a user submitted section so that iCols users can add new climbs to the database via app or website.
- Offline mode. iCols will simply not function without a network connection. Being able to save climbs for offline use just makes sense.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
