I understand this is the free app, I also purchased the other version of this app.
The developer has zero intent of updating this app to work with anything past IOS 8. Don't waste your time on either. Oh I forgot to mention the ad pop ups.
Simple. Easy to use. No learning curve needed. BIG digits. High contrast colors. Even on a dirt bike with both tires out of balance, I had no problem reading the speed at a glance. Very nicely done.
One flaw 3/5
Great speedo. Does exactly what it's supposed to do. But while it must understandably use location services to function, I hate that there is no option for "while using app." The only options in location service preferences for this app are either "never," which means the app won't work, or "always," which I always suspect for draining batteries, if not privacy.
Gets the job done 4/5
Would like to see the location services use only while in app instead of on all the time.
Used to be good/Not now. 1/5
I had this for a few years and it was good. I didn't mind the adds at the bottom of the screen. Now the app is unusable because it keeps taking you out of the app and directing you to the App Store. You close it and go back and it will take you right back to App Store. Someone got too greedy and now the app just can't be used anymore.
Broken in iOS 10.1 2/5
This app worked great (I have the paid version) until iOS 10.1, now does not work at all. Please update to 64 bit! Thank you
Tracks your location ALL THE TIME, even when closed 1/5
The only location options they give are never and always. I forgot to turn it back off once. A few days later my phone popped up a notification to let me know specifically that this app had been using my location in the background, despite having been closed, and the phone even rebooted since.
If you can't think of a good reason for this app to track you 24/7, like I couldn't, let them know it's a privacy violation, rate it, and delete. What a shame. I just needed a speedometer quick, as mine quit working and I didn't want a ticket. I wonder who has been looking at my location and why now. :(
Great compact app for speed determination 4/5
I love this ap for its simplicity. It simply works.
Uses GPS even when not running! 1/5
By Mr lobo
The app works as promised, just turn off data, ie airplane mode to skip adds. My main complaint is it uses location services in the background even when the app is not running? What is it doing with that data? Is this spyware tracking my location all the time? Drains battery too.
Almost got in a car crash 1/5
By Jake Boop
This app is very accurate with speed, my car's speedometer doesn't work so I have to use this. I've almost gotten into so many accidents because ads will automatically take you to the App Store without you even touching the screen. So I have to reach in and close it out, but IMMEDIATELY and I mean within a split second it'll do it again, rendering it entirely useless and massively dangerous. I highly recommend you DO NOT download this. I would rather attempt to judge my speed by my gear and RPMs than further put myself in danger with this app.
Stop with the ads 3/5
This app is great when it is On the speedometer. But what seems like every 30 secs it switches over to the app store to some dumb game. Then you have to turn app off and back on. It is very frustrating and dangerous while driving. I suggest trying a different app first.
TOO MANY POP UP ADS 2/5
Just what I need. An ad popping up, taking me to a different page every two seconds when I'm trying to drive! 👎 Speedometer does actually work though...
Nice design bad ads 1/5
The design is great but you only see if for a few seconds before you get switched to the App Store to buy something else.
Get this if you want ads not your speed. 1/5
Maybe it's a bug, but this app reopens app store links over and over, switching away from the gps speed every couple seconds. Terrible. Completely useless on my iPhone 7+ - Avoid.
Annoying AF 1/5
By Nickname r gay
All this crap app does it take you to the App Store. It's a f-ing annoying piece of trash, I don't understand why all these high ratings are given.
Pop up ads dangerous 1/5
Ads pop up anytime spend more time trying to get speedometer back up and while driving dangerous, I Do not recommend.
Perfect except the App Store redirects 1/5
This app is perfect, simple and does exactly what it's supposed to do...When it's not auto-opening the App Store. Let us know when it's fixed. For now I'm deleting it.
Ad ad ad ad ad , redirect to App Store to buy crap every 10 seconds
Horrible App!!! 1/5
Shortly after downloading the app advertisements began popping up. I understand that advertisements come with a free app but it became so bad that as soon as you would close out of one advertisement another one was replacing it. There were so many advertisements that would pop up it literally left the app useless!
Was great, now unsafe 1/5
I used to use this quite a bit for vehicles with no speedo (golf cart, backhoe, project car). Last few times the ads open on their own and render it unusable. It happens constantly. This is a fatal bug. A couple times and you give up. Moving on to another app.
Pos!!! Not a good app!!! 1/5
Can't even watch the app for directing you to the App Store every 2-3 seconds!!!!!!! DONT DO IT!!!
I'm getting bounced to the App Store for other apps so fast I can't even catch a glimpse of my speed
Not usable with ads 1/5
You can't use this with the current ad setup. Just launches app after app like a pop up in a web browser.
Don't download 1/5
Apps pop up non-stop so it's impossible to use. Would not recommend
The Ads 3/5
The Ads Are annoying. It's not safe to drive while trying to redirect my phone back to see my speed. Please fix !! It's so aggy!
Ads sabotage the app 1/5
By Judgment fun
Works as advertised. Only complaint is that I paid to remove the ads and it still shows ads. The ads even open automatically in the App Store taking me away from the speedometer screen rendering the app useless.
Too many pop ups 1/5
Ads constantly pop up! Can't look at the speed for longer than a few seconds without something coming up. Uninstalled.
Almost unusable 2/5
Clean looking and apparently accurate. However, the current version opens up AppStore every 5 - 7 seconds. I don't mind banner ads at to top or bottom, but this free version is ruined by switching to the AppStore that frequently. Since this isn't a must-have app, I'll switch to one of the others that are less intrusive.
Completely unusable and dangerous 1/5
Do not download this app, use the paid version with no ads. It's $2. Ads pop up rapid fire over this developer's amazingly good work and fire off every few seconds taking you out of the app and into the App Store. Sorry dude. Your app is great, but the ads make it dangerous and impossible to use.
Hostile ! Unusable ! 1/5
A recent update moves from banner ads (which are ok) to HOSTILE presentation of other Apps in the App Store app.
It frequently and randomly opens the App Store app - switching away from displaying your speed.
This is potentially dangerous !
I'm uninstalling the App and will look elsewhere.
Be cautious if you use this app.
Don't use 1/5
Don't use! Ads pop up every minute and takes you to iTunes Store. Skip this app!
Used to be great 2/5
Used to work awesome but now is basically useless because ads open on their own to the App Store all the time
Totally useless after a few minutes 1/5
I automatically get diverted to the App Store. What a waste of time.
App is great, constantly flipping to the App Store is infuriating 2/5
I've been using this app for a year or so and have been impressed with it's accuracy and lack of sucking my battery dry.
Unfortunately the newest version opens the App Store approximately **50 times** during my 30 mile drive. I can't stand it anymore and will be removing the app as soon as this review posts.
You made a nearly perfect app impossible to use. Great job guys. Keep up the substandard work.
Worked fine for awhile 1/5
Ever since the last OS update it won't stay open- it just immediately opens App Store and goes to some Disney page. I need this because the speedo on my actual car stopped working. Deleted it and got a different one.
Stop while you have your sanity 1/5
I would not recommend this app to anybody. At times it works fine but the majority of the time it won't even let you see your speed because it will switch to the App Store 2 seconds after the app is open. Which creates dangerous driving conditions and a very angry driver. Apparently I'm not alone because I now read that multiple other people have this issue as well. I am going to have to delete this app and search for a different one.
Lose the ads 1/5
By Alarm Guy Atlanta
I used the app on my boat during wake boarding. Multiple ads in just a few minutes. Deleted app.
If I would have known you had to have the gps on "always" for it to work I would not have downloaded. Why does this app need to know my location when I am not using it. It has been deleted!
Used to be good 1/5
Now ads pop up and take cover the whole screen. I'm not going to click my phone every couple of minutes to close the ads while I'm driving.
I used to really like this app but I had to delete it and get a new one. I rely on this app to let me know how fast I'm going while driving but constantly having ads pop up in the App Store has become dangerous and I don't want to put myself or anyone else in danger. Idk why they decided to make the ads pop up that way but it's not only dangerous but super annoying!
Used to be a great app 1/5
This used to be a great app to track my speed. I can't use it anymore though, because it keeps glitching and going to the App Store while I'm driving. I can't be messing around with my phone and trying to navigate city streets.
Waze offers a speedometer in the lower left hand corner of the map screen. That is what I use now and it even tells me the speed limit for every street I'm driving on.
I have uninstalled this app after using it for a year and a half.
Don't get it way too many ads 2/5
They pop up constantly-can't drive and use it unsafe
Ads might cause accident 3/5
If you driving at 60 mph then the add come up then you have to switch back.
How in the world you can look up add while you are driving. I mean isn't this crazy??
Not Worth The Bother! 1/5
With the ads constantly popping up, it makes this app all but useless. It's not enough to have the ads on the bottom of the screen, they have to take over the entire screen as well!
Would love... but... 1/5
By Daniel Stoops
This app would be wonderful, but with intrusive ads every few seconds, the app is unusable.
Pop up ads make this app completely useless and dangerous
This app will kill someone and apple needs to remove 1/5
This app will kill someone and apple needs to remove
Ads are awful. 1/5
This app used to be excellent. The speedometer in my vehicle started acting up so I downloaded this app to use whenever it was t working. At first it worked great with no issues. Now I can't have the add open for any significant amount of time without it switching to the App Store advertising some app. It's become useless.
Unsafe, constant ads 1/5
This app is terrible. It closes and opens the app store every 30 seconds. Completely unusable and the dev should be ashamed for releasing this. Unsafe to the point that I think Apple should pull it.
Great app, the ads ruin it 1/5
By Touch my lightsaber
The app is the best speedometer I've used on the App Store, but the ads constantly switch over to the App Store in the middle of using it. I understand paying to get rid of ads, but there's no reason to possibly risk my safety and my record because I keep losing my speed (I need the app due to a broken dashboard). I'm switching to another app because of this issue.
