New iOS App for the OW – Beta testers wanted

  • @itwire You need to have a few programming skills and love your OW ;)

    @thehoff As the feedback up to now showed no major bugs, I'm convinced that the first release will be next week or so ...

    Will you be adding the ability to toggle km/miles? I can almost guarantee Americans will be your biggest user base, and some idiot decided many years ago that kilometers weren't for us, and I guess we listened.

  • @thegreck haha, you can already switch units from metric to imperial ;)

  • @SeeTheInvisible you are the boss!! Great news

  • Great looking Application. I would love to get my hands on the app and test it. I'm a 255 pound 44 year old fella. I own and ride two different Onewheels. I ride everyday and ride the OW to work just about everyday. I live in Oregon and ride a lot of different terrain. let men know if I can help test. Thanks!


  • I don't meet the requirements (new board/rider) or have an AW yet, but I might be getting one, specifically for riding the OW. So, I am hoping that this app turns out to be awesome, if I do. :-P

  • Any plans for Android? POnewheel is great, but I have no use for an iphone.

  • Great idea if the application led to the end.

  • cool - looking forward to seeing it in the app store

  • This app is bad ass! Trust me people!! Your going to want it... Thank you @SeeTheInvisible

  • Today I have already seen a mockup screenshot from the GUI improvements with some of the optimization other beta testers suggested - looks even better;-)

    It seems like this guy quickly adapts to our feedback!

    Just like Future Motion! ;)

  • i hope this is available soon.

  • Any update on when this will be available yet?

  • The app is coming along nicely, it'll be worth the wait!

  • @itwire Great idea

    today I received an intermediate release between two beta versions (to try something out which I reported previously), which was already titled "pre version" and andy ( @SeeTheInvisible ) wrote within the mail that (unless something unexpected happens) he thinks that he will send out the last beta before the final release today or tomorrow.
    since this version worked exeptionally well, I guess it can be only a matter of days until the final version will be in the app store - just depending on how fast apple releases the app. but anyhow, we should better give him the time he needs to finish what he wants to do...;-)

    as some of you may know from my previous posts, I am focusing more on the acoustical features (to experience the ride without my phone in my hands). some of the other beta testers are giving a lot of feedback about GUI improvements, additional values and features. that´s a great combination - it is very impressive to see, how each version develops. andy really is a talented guy!
    I think I already received about 4 beta versions (and about 2 intermediate versions to test a bugfix or so) - each version with a lot of really nice improvements, new little features and better look and feel.

    while everything of the initial features already works perfect for me (iPhone5), I had a very nice new experience today with the last version of the app which I would like to share with you:
    until now, I considered OWheelBuddy as a "security app with all relevant information" which makes me feel comfortable during my ride.
    but the last version had two little features which gave me a constant smile during the rides - it really added more fun to that thing!

    you can now activate a feature called "wheelslip detection".
    this feature not only drops those (wrong) values resulting from a free spinning wheel (slippery surface) and therefore keeps your top speed values accurate, it also makes a nice sound each time it detects the wheel slipping. this led to a kind of game for me - whenever I moved on to some slippery surface (gras, dirt uphill, gravel, ...) I tried to give my best with accelerating ("burnout") to trigger that funny sound;-)

    also another new feature ("new top speed message") enables rewarding sounds. each time you exceed your personal top speed, it notifies you about that. I felt like a child again, trying to improve my top speed;-)

    what about the other testers, whats your experience so far?

  • @cr4p thanks for the info, I'm jealous now and can't wait for the release of the app.

  • @cr4p Sounds amaaaaazing!

  • Wow, can't wait to try this! Looks like you already have enough testers, but if not, I'd be happy to help.
