Plot your runs and share them with your fitness friends – or stalkers!
My Tracks Review
by on August 14, 2010
There are so many running apps on the Android Market that there’s no reason why Android users shouldn’t all be rivalling Usain Bolt for fitness. What this means is that to make your app stand out from the crowd it has to offer something pretty special.
The My Tracks app does is one of the best we have tried – it utilises your smartphone’s GPS and uses it to chart the maps of the runs, hikes, cycle rides you go on.
To use, you just press the record button and traverse your track. Once done, stop recording you can visualise the maps on Google Maps.
The app also has some nifty graph features, where you can chart your speed – which is also shown in real time when you are running – as well as the distance of your workout. You can also make your maps public and port all the information into a Google Spreadsheet.
With all this Google connectivity, you might have already guessed that this is an app created by Google, which actually is a bonus as it means that it syncs really well with the rest of search giant’s functionality. And it will also link to Twidroid, if you have this Twitter client installed.
Yes it is geeky, but this is an app which will give you a comprehensive breakdown of your exercise – and there is nothing better to make you sweaty than some good ol’ data mining!
