RELIVE SMARTPHONE APP

 

RELIVE is a neat app. I first was introduced to it watching Matt Galat’s videos. It really caught my attention but I never considered actually trying it myself. My rides are rather boring … I ride the same trails every day with very little variation. So capturing the route I ride on a video just isn’t something most people would be interested in seeing day after day. Never the less, I decided to give it a try. Relive offers both a basic free version with limited features as well as a paid version which offers some goodies not found on the basic version. I believe the paid version costs $6.99 a month and offers a 30 day free trial. One feature I like on the paid version is you can change the speed of the video. The free basic mode goes way too fast for my liking.

I am not much into high tech stuff. I never have been. I much prefer simplicity in my life. I prefer to avoid the challenge, frustration and aggravation that comes with this high tech world we live in. I would not even have a smartphone if it wasn’t for wanting to have weather radar with me while I am out riding. I much preferred my simple flip phone as far as a cell phone. I started out with an Android phone but last year I switched to an iPhone. It did not take very long before I regretted it and nothing has changed. I much prefer an Android. Quite frankly I don’t see what all the hype is about touting the iPhone as being superior.  It doesn’t impress me any whatsoever.

Anyway, Relive is available for Apple and Android. Reading about Relive and watching YouTube videos about it one would think that it has to be used with Strava or a similar app … that Relive is not a standalone app. However, I only installed Relive and it is working fine for me. It creates videos of my rides laying them out on Google Earth just like I have seen elsewhere such as Matt Galat’s videos.

It is rather interesting to see one’s ride recorded like this. I only wish I could work with this program on my desktop computer rather than having to do everything on my smartphone. I am still in the learning process as I have only been using it for three days thus far. I just learned today that you can take pictures while out on your ride and they will appear in the Relive video right where you took them.

Here is a screenshot of a paused video showing the entire ride route:

Here is my ride laid out on a map:

I am going to try something here hoping it will work. If it does you will see my 3rd ride I have recorded with the Relive app.

And here is a YouTube video showing what the Relive video looks like:

“RELIVE” YOUR ADVENTURE

Relive your adventure? Well, yeah … sort of. Actually I am talking about a smartphone app which is pretty nifty. Anyone who watches Matt Galat’s (JaYoe) videos has probably already seen it as he uses it on his videos.

RELIVE is free and works with Strava, Endomondo, Garmin Connect and Polar Flow apps to create a 3-D mapping of the route you rode.

HERE are other videos concerning this neat app.
