This is a nice one, it helps me get more mileage out of my electric car by stimulating easy acceleration and braking. Love it!

When's the iOS version coming out?
@tkrones It's out already! Flo is available for both Android and iOS.

Given that I can turn off automatic tracking in the settings though, doesn't it seem inflexible to only provide "Always" and "Never"?

I am biased, but I'm liking Flo a lot. Especially when I'm not in a hurry it definitely improves my driving.

I don't see why you can't have Location Services set to "While Using" because the app doesn't track automatically for you - you have to press 'Start Trip' every time. Would definitely save battery, plus I'm paranoid that you're constantly collecting my location data in the background. I think you are, which is why the app can be free.

@bryantpeng Hi Bryan, the iPhone app doesn't connect to the Internet (yet). So for now no data is collected. We aim to provide an online profile (like on Strava / Runkeeper etc) but of course no personal data is sold or given away to third parties. That's a no brainer. About the location tracking on the background: we do record your trips automatically. So that's why we need it.
