Ever since I started running last year, I’ve been trying fitness apps that allow me to track what I do and how I do it, I’m not a professional runner so I wanted a free app that has what I need but not a lot of features that I don’t want. And Google’s MyTracks has been the one I’ve been using and it works great. It’s easy to use, logs everything into a Google Docs and you can view your track on Google Maps.
Google has just updated the app to version 2.0 bringing a huge UI makeover making it play along nicely with ICS/JB, better perfomance and better charts, as stated in Google’s Blog:
- The ability to play back your tour directly on Google Earth for Android
- Aggregation of statistics over time to show trends in your performance
- Simpler, faster user interface
- Improved charts and stats tables that are easier to read
If you’re looking for a simple fitness app, give it a try. If you already have it, be sure to update it.
