Spotcycle download available for iOS (4.1.3) that addresses changes to system feeds

We’ve just released a minor patch to Spotcycle for iOS  (version 4.1.3) that addresses issues when the data feed for a bike share system changes. Spotcycle will now detect when a city’s bike share feed changes when you load the application and automatically update the feed. This means that any changes to the data feed will be transparent to you the next time you launch Spotcycle. Thank you to all our users who have been sending us feedback! We really appreciate your help in making our app better!
