Calling iPhone and iPad users - try the free Velo Vision app!
Keep up with news stories, forum posts (including the free small ads) and more via our new free app...

With many thanks to programmer Simon we are proud to present the free Velo Vision app via iTunes!
The splash screen
Currently at version 1.1, it's currently basically a device-friendly interface to the website, so you can read new stories, follow the forums and bookmark favourites. You can also search the news story archives. I suspect that following the free small ads forum to spot any just-posted bargains may be among the most popular uses...
We would love your feedback and suggestions for future functionality!
I've started a sticky thread in the main VV forum for feedback, suggestions and support queries. If it gets out of hand I'll start a new sub-forum for app discussion...
To anticipate a few questions:
- An Android version is not immediately on the cards, but may well be in future. Feel free to post on the feedback thread if you'd like one.
- To read the actual magazines on iPhone and iPad you currently need to have a digital subscription and use the free Exactly app from Exact Editions.
- We do have plans to enable the Velo Vision app to display magazine content too, initially probably free 'taster' material.
- There will also be an Electric Bike app shortly, and that will in due course act as a full reader for the magazine. Clearly the iPad will be better for this than the phone.
So, please download the app from iTunes and let us know what you think!

And see forum posts (the forum title is incorrect BTW, being fixed now!)
You can also search the websiet news archive.
I've just submitted an updated version (v1.1.1) which corrects the forum titling blooper mentioned above as well as fixing a few little niggles.
If you've already downloaded the app then you'll automatically receive the update once it gets through the review process.
