Endomondo Sports Tracker
Thanks largely to the warm summer weather, this app has become one of my most often used applications. Endomondo Sports Tracker allows me to track nearly every activity I do, be it a bicycle ride, a short jog, or a 3-hour kayaking expedition. Using the GPS in my Android smartphone, the app follows me everywhere I go, keeping tabs on calories burned, distance, elevation, and more.
Endomondo has a terrific site, which allows me to track my history as a whole and on individual levels. My friends can hop online, see what I've accomplished, and even cheer me on. Depending on how private you want to be, you can share your best times, longest runs, and other feats with the Endomondo community. And while on the subject of friends, the Facebook integration lets me share my workouts and bike rides with friends immediately upon conclusion.
One of my favorite features comes in the paid app, which lets me challenge myself in previous activities. I love hearing the friendly Endomondo voice tell me how I am doing in terms of time, quickly putting me back to my music application.
Price: Free; pro version is $4.12
