SmartMoof

Remember my test ride with the VanMoof Electrified S? This bike has lots of smarts, and it also comes with an app. Which unfortunately isn't really good. That is why Max, who owns this bike, wrote a better app.

The app provides comprehensive information about the bike, the most important one is the status for the two batteries. One drives the motor, one drives the lock and the onboard computer. The bike itself only has a four segment instrument. Two segments lit means your drive battery is between 26% and 50%, which makes a huge difference. SmartMoof tells you the exact charge level, even if you are away from the bike. It also displays your current charge level and your speed if you mount your phone to the handlebar of your bike.

There is lots of other information. You can reset two odometers, maybe one when the battery is full, the other one when you start your trip. You get a better understanding how far you can go on that charge. I won't bore you with the rest, but the app also contains the vital unlock command. Walk up to your bike, and as you get out your phone you can release the lock.

The next step is quite obvious: provide the unlock on an Apple Watch. That's not here yet, but I am pretty sure Max wants that too.

Before you buy the app, make sure you have a VanMoof Electrified S bike. Or buy the app anyway, just to support a young student.
