Needs a little work for app navigation

I’ve only done one ride which was pretty good. Using Wahoo Kickr Core it responded well to elevation changes and graphics were nice. Some basic navigation things are a little annoying though. For example, you cannot add routes to “My Favorites” from the app - you need to log on through web browser to do this.
Also, there is no back button after selecting a route. For example, if you scroll through routes and filter (or use search function) and select a route, then decide you want a different route, you must hit “change” which resets all of your filters or search results.

What exactly are we reviewing

I’ve been adapting to riding indoors and it’s a challenge. Many choices out there. The one part of road cycling i have been looking for is in Rouvy. Rouvy takes my setup and makes the experience the closest i’ve come to being on the road. Get this, climbs feel like climbs. But when you get to the top of the climb you feel some float in the pedals. Then the drop comes and you’re on a nice descent that feels like you’re actually descending. The app is not perfect but the feel is . So let’s let these cool maps and rider community mature or grow. i’m more forgiving of less than perfect if it’s fun to ride and Rouvy does that. Do you want to recalibrate your riding for an app? Did you spend your money to have to learn to do it “their way”? I invested in myself when i bought my trainer. As that should be everyone’s goal. (** Tacx Neo 2 T for power and my Quarq power unit for cadence.)
The apps should work for the riders not the other way. Give this a chance and i think you’ll get past the marketing and wow factor the competitors are banking on in a few short rides. Not that Rouvy lacks in wow factor. 😏 Cycling is personal and i’m reviewing this from a cyclists stance.

Update to my review

As I have now spent almost 2 weeks with the App, I have learned how to create virtual riding partners who ride just a little faster than me, using Rouvy’s archive of other cyclist routes. I have been adding 30-50 riders so I always have someone nearby to challenge me.
I think this app deserves to be viewed on a large screen. It runs best with Apple TV 64. Second choice would be a large screen iPad or computer. Another good choice would be an iPhone linked by HDMI adapter directly to a big screen. The filming and immersive feel would be wasted on just the small screen of a smartphone. And unless you have an ultra fast WiFi network, screen mirroring with ApplePlay or similar mirroring methods is too choppy to maintain the immersive feel.

My next project will be to rewire my biking room with a direct Ethernet connection to my AppleTV so I can stream the rides instead of the 5-10 minute WiFi downloads to the Apple TV. I will soon run out of storage on the device and will have to delete earlier rides. My WiFi varies from 30-50 Mbps while my Ethernet runs 10 times faster.
