Spike Feature Requests

Thanks for your interest in Spike by ikeGPS!
Please add feature requests here or vote for features that are already captured.

Spike would be better if ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. your spike "customer support" would directly address my issue rather than direct me to another webinar that I have already watched.

    You need to include video instructions of an actual 'Ipad' as a picture taken, alignment, what it should look like, how you know you've done it correct or incorrectly...options for saving the file. When you call back, ask for the person that put in the request-talking to the wrong person doesn't solve the problem.

    • archive old folders

      I have heaps of used folders which I don't want to get rid of in case I need them again but dont want them in my folder list

      perhaps a drag and drop one folder into another to become a sub folder then I could have an archive folder for unused ones which would unclutter the folder system

      This would also help with dragging pictures into sub folders which you cant do at the moment as you could drag all into new folder then add it to relevant folder to become new sub folder

      • I would like the ability to have total building reports with cumulative measurements such as Bldg 1 Siding total and all associated scans.

        Full structure/building reports organized by bldg with total SF figures listed so it can be used for estimating, proofs, take-offs, etc. Along with all the structure's associated scans/photos.

        • Select and grab ALL photos

          If the user could select all photos from any folder at the same time to move, that would be useful. Currently, you can select all, but cannot move all at the same time.

          • Rotate Photos!

            There should be an option to rotate photos. This would be very simple to write into the coding.

            • Save as.. button.

              The idea is basically to add a Save As... button in the app. so we can actually place a name to the photo, example Store1 or POI#345, to be able to know in advance the name for that specific job or field collection item. If using electronic forms or other way of data collection, this would be a great way to link the Spike photo and measurements to the proper feature in the data base.

              • folder

                Nest folders are a MUST!

                It's not very user friendly to not allow folder creation within an existing folder.

                • it supported Microsoft Surface 3 or 4

                  We use the Microsoft 'eco-system'. Most signwriters use Windows PC's for their CAD/CNC equipment. Please support Microsoft Surface Tablets or Windows 10.

                    • Save GPS data to image with optional offset to actual sign location.

                      It would be nice if GPS data was available in the JPG image. We use a software that shows all photos on a map. Furthermore, it would be great to be able to turn on an option and have the location offset based upon the measurement so that instead of seeing where the photo was taken from, the GPS coordinates are of where the target is located.

                        • Add notes & annotations to the measuremenets

                          Simply have an additional field where you can add notes about the image/measurement taken (even if done online or afterwards)

                          • Supported MapTiler (Custom Map Overlays) and Manual Location Manipulation

                            MapTiler ( http://www.maptiler.com/ ) allows you to place blueprints on top of Google Earth maps. This would allow a person to document the photo location as well as the target location accurately while inside buildings.

                            With this functionality, you will need to provide a way to manually manipulate the camera's location. See the following Android Apps as examples:

                            MapCam and GPS Map Camera.

                              • Removable Magnetic Mounting Solution...

                                Probably the largest complaint I hear from sales reps here is that they don't want to permanently mount the unit to their phones. Neither do they want to have to change out their current case for a case the unit is mounted to (too cumbersome).

                                I would like to suggest a magnetic mounting solution: A small, unintrusive plate could be mounted on the back of the phone/tablet. A matching plate could be mounted on the back of the spike unit. Neodymium magnets could be used to ensure the plates are small and matching divots could be incorporated into the plates…

                                • Photos out of the cloud - Remove Red Dot

                                  Can we have a way to download the photograph from ike without the red dot present? We are a sign company and want to show the client a sales drawing with the sign "on the building" but there is a red dot when we download. My graphic artists are asking if I can shoot double pictures w/ a regular photo app to remove the dot.

                                  • More like Photo Measures - by Blue Pixel

                                    I am new to using ike and so far so good. I have been doing all my measurements by hand for quite awhile and communicating them with Photo Measures. There are really good features in that app. If you could add those features your product would be completely awesome.
                                    I like notes and call outs from the app - Any notes I can make the better. Especially if they all translate to the cloud feature you have.

                                    • Photogrammetry from 2 (or more) spike shots...

                                      I currently use a program to match features from 2 or more photos taken of the same scene at different angles. Once I have a reference measurement from something that's visible in all photos, I'm able to pull measurements for features on any plane as well as connect points and build a 3d model of the scene which can be imported into sketchup. It would be nice if this type of functionality was incorporated into spike, it would remove the need to take a manual measurement since spike knows the distance to the target.

                                      • Your device was compatible with the newer Windows 10 devices in the market.

                                        We use a Windows based platform for our business software (CMS & ERP) and want to use this tool with the newer Windows based devices our field force use.

                                        • Freehand annotations on images would be nice

                                          Our sales people have to take the PDF and pull it into another app where they can use a stylus to add notes. It would be nice if that could all be done within the spike app.
