Nike is probably one of the very first companies that created a running app like this, and gives you information regarding time and distance, pace, along with a lot of other stuff you’re going to need to keep you going.


The Runkeeper is what you’re going to want when it comes to accurate time and GPS recordings. It’s not only that which you can do. You also have the ability to log in your goals for weight loss, speed or distance, etc.


MapMyRun is pretty much the same as Nike+Running wherein you can map your routes, log in your activity, whether it’s running, walking, cycling, etc. It features time keeping, weight and nutrition log info, and GPS tracking, among others. It’s one of the best apps out there.


If you’re just starting with your routine, then this can be your best friend. It incorporates running in increasing increments between walks so you can eventually get your groove on the road. It’s very easy to use, and it even features a virtual dog which can accompany you while you’re working out.

IsmoothRun (For iOS only)

This may not be the most popular running app in the market, but no doubt that it won’t take long before everybody starts using this with its goldmine of features. It combines all basic properties with cadence tracking, which not all apps have, as well as the ability to post activities to the tracking site of their choice. Isn’t that neat?

Now you know what apps are hot, it’s time for you to choose. And it doesn’t matter what choice you have so long as you get up off your butt!
