    Looks a bit user-friendlier than the BikeHub app. Route-type changeability, reroute-from-current-location, pinch-zoom and so on...

    It sounds good for the reason that wingpig gives, but having just tried it, it has crashed once and keeps failing to plan a route. Also fails to find any place I search for. Has this actually been tested?

    Also, no 3G/WiFi here and these apps just aren't worth it IMO unless you have decent data connectivity.

    Will try again tonight over wifi.

    Seems to be working fine on my Nexus S, great to have this available.

    The searching seems to work fine on mine. I expect they will use the same lookup service as the cyclestreets website so I would check if your location works from there.

    Tried this again last night over wireless and it was great (although it did crash again once). The interface is streets ahead of any of the other apps I have used. Being able to easily switch between shortest/quietest/balanced routes is probably the single biggest advance.

    But.. tried again today (GPRS) and it consistently fails to plan a route. Think I need to do more testing.
