The much-anticipated release of our Spotcycle Lab™ bike share app is finally here! The Spotcycle Lab project is a reboot of Spotcycle™ and created as the sandbox in which you can try out new features we develop (as well as features you ask to see), with the goal of creating the ultimate bike share app. With a built-in feedback feature, Spotcycle Lab provides a platform that makes it easy for you to send us your comments.
In addition to the classic Spotcycle station status functionalities, Spotcycle Lab includes new unique features including:
- Reality+™, our own augmented reality overlay for locating bike stations in live view
- Station clustering to make it easier to locate stations and bikes in a general area
- A more user-friendly and unified navigation
Spotcycle Lab builds on our Spotcycle platform and is our take on a user-driven bike share app. It will be the ongoing developmental playground in which we’ll test out new potential features for Spotcycle. Based on your positive feedback for these features, some of them might eventually make their way to Spotcycle. In other words, Spotcycle Lab will be an ongoing project responsive to user feedback.
Spotcycle Lab and Spotcycle will remain as separate applications. As we’ll be introducing more avant garde features to Spotcycle Lab that might appeal to some users, other users might prefer the classic Spotcycle application for their daily bike share needs.
