Tips and Tricks in Geospike

As seen in the recent newsletter, here’s the Geospike office’s hints on how to get the most out of the app. Is there anything you’d like to add to the list?

#1 No phone data? No worries!
Many people don’t realise but you don’t actually need phone data to spike! Avoid the scourges of data roaming while spiking by sliding that cellular data off. The app will still capture the spike as normal but won’t upload it until you connect to the internet, whether at home or at the hotel. Neat, huh?
#2 Facebook uploading made simple
Geospike features streamlined Facebook integration, and can automatically post spikes to Facebook if you choose. Simply switch Facebook syndication on when you make a spike. To share every spike you make automatically, tap the ‘remember these settings’ checkbox.
#3 Trips are as simple as A-B-C
Right next to that big orange Spike button in the app, there’s a tab for Trips. If you want to start a trip, simply type the name of it in and hit start. But you can also add spikes to a trip after you’ve taken them. Simply hit the small blue button to the left of the ‘Start’ button. You can then choose the time period and the spikes that you wish to include in the trip, as well as its visibility.
#4 You can change your profile image
By default, every user is given a spiffy-looking robot. But you are able to change this by setting up a Gravatar using the same email address you used to sign up for Geospike.

  1. i’ve created a Gravatar with the same email address already, but he profile image is not change and is still the robot. Can you help?

  2. Hi Nekmm, after a few days, the new image should appear. If it doesn’t please write to support to let them know.

  3. Just wondering how do I go about starting a Trip on geospike for androids? The tab next to the Spike button currently says “Featured” and I can’t seem to find the Trip option.
