Easy, fast, fun: new desktop app now live

March 7, 2019

At Cycliq we know that the more time spent on the bike, the better. To make life easier, we’ve designed a new desktop app for your Apple Mac that combines our current ‘settings’ and ‘video editing app’ into one with a slick new interface.
This user-friendly solution will allow you to quickly and easily manage your device settings on the go, and edit and share your videos so you can get back in the saddle in no time.

Highlights:
• One simple, easy-to-use app replacing two previously separate apps for device settings and video editing
• Change light, video and other device settings
• Edit and stitch together multiple video segments
• Relive the pain – overlay STRAVA metrics

What’s next?
• Windows PC version
• Highlight Reel function (already available on CycliqPlus mobile app)

The new Cycliq desktop app is available for Apple macOS users now. Be on the lookout for the Windows PC version, which will be released very soon. In the meantime, PC users still need to use the two separate ‘settings’ and ‘editing’ apps.

We’ve designed the app so that it is easy to use. But if you do have any questions please get in touch with our support team at cycliq.com/support.

Below is a quick summary of the key features to help you navigate your way around the new app.

Overlay STRAVA metrics

Ride further, faster or longer than you ever have before? Connect and overlay STRAVA metrics and tramlines at the click of a button.

Ensure you are logged into Strava before selecting the video you would like to overlay. Navigate to the right-hand side, choose your settings and click ‘apply’. Your metrics will be automatically added to your video.
