Awesome! Mere days after convincing myself to part with another $30 for premium status (yes, I'm a real tightwad), you make this announcement and make me once again happy to have supported such a fantastic endeavour. Looking forward to the new version and more amazing features!

Very nice! To think I JUST updated yesterday. Still trying to figure out the new changes and here comes another. How long does 'premium' membership last? Is there a set price nowadays? The new alarms are freaking loud. I havent figured out how to adjust mine yet so I turned them off, but man do they sing on my 18L when active.

Can we get the front screen lower bar to change color when touring is active(maybe it does and Im blind)? I recall it used to be in some fashion(green or brown maybe). I use double tap for csv (visible icon) and long press for tour. I rarely even bother scrolling off the speedo screen. I can't hardly tell when i've turned it on or if its off anymore. I had a 30minute tour show 'live' for 6 hours somehow.

@Sebawhat solutions do you have for iOS users? I am surprised you have not made your app available for iPhone. Honestly, if you were to make this for iOS you could easily sell it for a ONE TIME PAYMENT of $10-$20 you would get a lot of sales. Darkness Bot is not that good.

Maybe do a web version of the app?

What ever the case maybe, please find a way to include iPhone users (sorry iOS watches don’t count...we all don’t have that rich persons toy. It went into the EUC).

What do you get with Premium? What other features are given to you once you pay? 

I get the feature of pride tho I don't use any of the advanced features. Im pretty sure programming for ios was gna be a HUGE undertaking. We've been asking about this for a while. Maybe someday, but I'm not holding my breath for it..

I think it is kind of a shame to NOT include iPhone users. I get @Seba’s point of it being a free app to be more “inclusive” but does not having a version that iPhone users can have access to defeat the broader community based message?

The solution is simple get yourself a cheap android phone. 

There is only 1 and only 1 programmer behind and in control of EUC.WORLD.

He is doing this in his spare time. Balancing work,familie life, euc interest and riding, a daily life and the programming and to a large extent supporting users of an app that is free with options for donations that he use to buy test gear that he needs.

You can find Android phone for 100-150$ to run the app, some are even cheaper.

If you search this forum you would have found what I listed here. Now @Seba have not said definite no to maybe making an iOS app. But it is something that will be new and he hast to invest time and money to buy licences for iOS development tool/platforms. 

From being part of translation and beta teams, and try to support as much as I can doubt an iOS app of EUC.WORLD will happen.

Also in the light of the existing Darknessbot.

So typical. Instead of supporting good ideas from members of a forum, you get the ones who recommend to "buy this stuff", as a solution, and "except things as they are", in hopes that your idea will "go away".

Happy to be a premium supporter of this app. It is a pretty large ask to make an app at all, let alone one with such a breadth of features and capability. Yes I'd love to improve the UX (as that's my specialism in life) but it works for my needs. Keep at it Seba!

So if we continue down this line. So typical people not reading the manual or in this case the post made to them. 

Please read my post again.

It is not a corporate development but a person spending his free spare time. It is not his means of lifesupport, EUC.WORLD.

Don't blame the messenger of the fact of situation.  

The is an IOS alternative which I told you about. Yes it is not the same but basic functions cover same functionality. 

Making apps on a totally new platform that you didn't plan for or worked on is not a simple task.

Just a note: This happens all the time. Android users not able to use apps only for Iphone and the other way around.

Just accept it, adapt you own side of the problem for a solution (cheap android phone) or learn how to make apps for Iphone yourself.

Darkness Bot is not that good.

What feature are you missing from EUCworld? Of course it's not the same but all the basic functions are there and then some. Integrations are really good and the app is getting better all the time. Personally I would like to have the telemetry data from EUCworld as DB does not have that feature as well made. Otherwise everything seems to be covered. If there's something particular you miss, it might be better to make a feature request to the DB team at their telegram channel.

@Seba Could you add a setting for a "clear theme"? The main screen font is pretty visible, but I find it hard to change some of the settings when I'm using the app outside on a sunny day.

I've started using the alarms to set a max speed at 32 km/h or 40 km/h, depending on the bike path I'm using. This is hard to do currently while outside, since the speed is either dark green on black when it's displayed, or dark grey on black when changing it.

My ideal case would be to have the speed setting displayed with a very light grey on black, or a global option to have black fonts on a clear background. I don't see a way to do that currently.

Even better would be to have different alarm "profiles", which would be selectable through an icon on the main screen. That way I could select a different max speed alarm without going into the settings.

Thanks!

Hi Seba just wanted to say I think the heat map you made on the site is really awesome. Seeing my own small contribution was great and so was exploring the planet. It's exciting to see the world light up as you move around. I don't know if a timelapse or even regular snapshots of the heat map would be possible, but i'd really love to see how it changes over time.

Thank you :) Timelapse is possible, but entire heatmap feature is very resource-consuming on the server side and puts substantial load on database server. So while I plan to build such a timelapses for all users in one movie, personal timelapse may be problematic. But I'll try to find some solution as this is very interesting feature that many users would love to have.

It's already in development :) I plan to add "light theme" in one of the next two updates.

Custom profiles for most important settings are on my "todo" list. I still have to figure out the best way to implement it in code, but the general idea is to allow user to define up to three profiles per each wheel. You can then use quick actions to switch between profiles, so you can easily do it from phone, smartwatch or Flic button.

When buying a $1,000+ wheel, adding an optional color wireless display that plays music, has GPS, Bluetooth, WiFi networking, and messaging for $50 is awesome, even if it's a bit clunky on the interface (which you can change). Saves from smashing a new $1,000+ phone in a fall. Even on $2,000 wheels you can use the same display. The amount of stuff it can do is amazing!

$50 new out of China, same for a used USA model that runs better/faster/cleaner. (You won't believe how good it is, even after you use it.)

  I know alot people out there use this app daily, why not show some love and contribute to the cause!  Premium membership is not that expensive and helps out in the development of new features and support of new wheels.

 

@Seba Keep up the great work!  Awesome App.  Look forward to new update.

I'm happy to throw a few dollars to Seba for all the work he does on EUC World, but I was also thinking the other day that the back of my Tesla V2 needed some adornment. I have a small laser engraver that I use for my woodworking logo, but it has the added benefit of being able to cut nicely through sign vinyl. So, I made a new sticker. I only had black, red, and gold vinyl on hand so I'll have to get some dark green and brown, and aligning the two decals could use a little more practice as well. But this isn't bad for a first attempt.

for all the detractors out there:

I understand that @Sebais only one person working on EUC World. This is why my posts about expanding to iOS users mention the idea of reaching out to the community to help Seba. I’m sure there are programmers with iOS knowledge who could help get Seba’s amazing work out to the rest of the community. 

The second point I have brought up is if not iOS, then maybe EUC World could be a web based app. Again...WIDER Access for all in the community. 

Calling me “Selfish” is completely ignorant because the whole point of my post is to make EUCW available to EVERYONE! 

Why can I not be happy with DarknessBot the iOS alternative? It’s because I used my old dying Android phone (has to plugged in to work) to run EUCW. Yes I got the App. I did several tests on battery read out on my wheel. EUCW matched what the fast charger saying, the begode app was saying. Every time. Darkness bot was 8%-10% under the battery reading of EUCW. That, sucks! Anyhow, one of a couple features missing in DarknessBot is accuracy. Let me be clear, Seba has built an AWESOME app. To me it sucks that riders not on Android have to rely on an EUC app that is not accurate about battery or company apps which are sub par.  

As for the other feature that is EUCW only, There is a GPS locator feature which shows the route history of the wheel. The second you ride your wheel (after registering it) turn on your app, bingo, we all know where your wheel is at. 

Story time: A rider friend of mine lost their wheel to a thief who in-turn sold it through a Craigs List type site. The buyer got a used wheel and has not idea that they are riding stolen property. My friend was hoping that once the Buyer rider looks up the best app for operating the wheel, they will land on EUCW and use that app. Once on EUCW “BOOM” Wheel located. Right? Only if that buyer has an Android phone. What if said buy is using the super popular iPhone? Now what? Let’s just hope that the Police and the Sales site communicate to get the wheel back. Praying and crossing our fingers. 

Had the most popular EUC app been available to ALL phone platforms, that would have been another few percents of a chance to my friends wheel back. DOn’t get it twisted and think I am blaming the app developer for anything. The point is listing a really good reason why a community app like EUCW should be available for all to access, as easily as possible. Android, iOS, or as a web app. 

See I am happy to continue using the balance of information between DarknessBot and the new Begode app. That’s fine with me. 

What I have been trying to push is a way where the community could help the amazing one man empire get this great tech in the hands and devices of the rest of our community. 

That’s it. Over it.

I freaking HATE cell phones and apple and droid and all that crap. However, years ago I needed/wanted to be able to control a certain brand of audio mixer, wirelessly. The only app available was on apple platform. I am a windows user and ABHOR apple. You know what the solution was? Nope, it wasnt ME asking the mixer company to write another app. I had to break down and spend $150 on an ipad mini. Problem solved, it was a dedicated remote for a mixer that works great. Since then, I have used it with darkness bot and another app or two. My point.... sometimes you just have to buy something in particular to do something in particular.

Enter my euc career. Guess what... I didnt really like darknessbot and decided to give eucw a try. After reading back thru posts, I realized that @Seba has already been asked about ios and it would probably not be available soon. So, my ipad wouldnt work. Solution..... Spend $150 on a driod watch that runs eucw and plays music. Since then, I have used the watch for a couple other minor things..  Sounds familiar right?

Moral of the story. If you want something in particular, you may need to buy something in particular....

I must admit, I still like to ask when the euc company is gna make me an integrated beer holder. I mean damn, its so obvious guys!
