Reply from CRADAR re: iPhone version:

Thanks Joe,

As it stands, we can't release an iPhone version of CRADAR. Apple won't allow what they call "emergency apps", and CRADAR qualifies. If Apple changes their developer policy, we have a version ready and waiting.

Stay tuned. We will be releasing an upgrade to CRADAR soon which will allow multiple emergency contacts and a simpler way to set the sensitivity. And don't worry, CRADAR will remain free (and ad free). The crash story on the CRADAR page is mine and I'm passionate about getting this app out to as many riders as possible.

Best,

Jay

Did you let them know?

Let us know what you find.

It found the GPS location after the "fall"... maybe setting that post fall timer a little higher will give it time to "find you"

Multiple emergency contacts would be nice.
And the custom setup is EASY.
Set calibrate, smack the phone a couple times, it uses that as the specified alert amount.
Although, I really don't know what is a "good" amount. I mean, i don't want it sending the message when I hit bumps. But a long low-side would be nice to set it off.


I wish I could see that it sent something. It kinda just resets and the outgoing message does not show in your texts.

From the developer of CRADAR

Hi all. I'm the developer of CRADAR and just wanted to introduce myself and help with any of the questions. Sorry about the lack of an iPhone version but Apple won't publish it. They classify it as an emergency app. I laughed when I saw houtex's post about the iStore. Good catch, my bad.

Google Maps gets its location information from several different sources, not just GPS. They can get a rough location from cell towers and any nearby wifi networks. We only use GPS because a rough location isn't accurate enough for a rider-down situation. That means you need a clear view of the sky to get an accurate GPS fix.

As long as I'm writing such a long winded post, I should mention that we don't leave the GPS on (super battery drain). We only turn it on when the phone's acceleometer detects a crash.

It's not a perfect app but I took a bad one a while back and nobody knew where I was. I wanted to make something available that might save someone from that kind of a day. If anybody has any suggestions for improvements, let me know.

Now there is something that doesn't happen everyday...

Haven't had to test the app yet, but I have it.

Thanks for posting, umm...how did you find us?

LOL. I dont know how you found us Jay. I guess googling CRADAR?
Ok well I have been trying this inside my office so I guess this weekend I'll go out riding and jump off my bike or something. LOL. Maybe my mountain bike so I can spare my moto.
I have tried a longer delay. 60 instead of 30. I am using a Samsung SCH-I500 ver 2.3.5

Thanks for finding us. This site has a pretty big following in this part of Texas. Hope other riders can benefit from your app.

I downloaded this app last night, set it up and put it through a few tests. Definitely a good app to have. I told the wife that she no longer has to worry when I ride and I demonstrated it for it. Definitely puts loved ones at ease.

It seems kinda hit or miss about detecting impacts.
I can drop it on a soft chair and it activates but if I drop my phone on a hard floor it doesn't.
It's definitely better than not having but it worries me that my contact may receive "the text" when I hit a bump or do a wheelie. If I don't hear his return call I may get tackled by an EMT.
Although I guess if the phone detects my movement then it won't send "the text", right?

Correct........also, use the custom sensitivity setting. When I was testing it out, all of the preset sensitivity settings would do just as you described. With the custom, I was able to get it set just right.
