Cyclemeter & Other Stats

no comments yet, post one now

If you follow my tweets, you might have noticed I occasionally use the excellent Cyclemeter (iPhone app) for collecting stats. What you might not have noticed is that you can actually shout support (or more likely abuse) at me while I’m cycling in and out of work!

The app uses text-to-speech to convert your @hiddenloop replies (pushed to the iphone through the app) and plays them over whatever music I’m listening to. Clever stuff! So next time you see a tweet like this holla back!

If you’re big into tracking exercise stats, I would recommend Cyclemeter over the other apps out there right now. I’ve tried MapMyRide, MapMyRun (and some others) and none work as well or are as simple to use. CycleMeter can also be used for running, but I prefer to use a Nike+ kit with an iPod nano (rather than lugging the iPhone around with me)

I’m working on a new feed & push importer service (with web-hooks) for Bugle that will allow any valid feed data to be displayed/updated within your site or blog. First examples of this will probably be put to use here, with my tweets, run data, cycle stats etc.

Share your RSS OPML ?

I’d be interested (maybe just plain nosey) to flick through other people’s subscribed feeds, and see what you’re reading. Export your subscribed feeds as OPML, upload and post a comment with a link.

Here is my RSS OPML file, – I check most all of these feeds on a daily basis. You can import this into any feedreader for reading at your leisure.

OPML ? is an XML format for outlines. Originally developed as a native file format for an outliner application, it has since been adopted for other uses, the most common being to exchange lists of RSS feeds between RSS aggregators.

Its probably already been done, but perhaps there’s scope here for an OPML delicious type – ‘share my feeds’ web app. Quick – to the bat mobile !

Edit: Its Been Done, already – Note to self, always Google before posting …
