Came across this today Sportypal app for iPhone (and the rest as well) seems to address some of the shortcoming I see with RunKeeper …. but and it’s a big BUT – I haven’t tried it. Just downloaded it and will try it out tomorrow. Also used for cycling snowboarding etc and their website (which it syncs to) has a good 3D view and tech breakdown of your exercise.
SportyPal is a FREE application that helps you improve your running, cycling, rollerblading or any other outdoor workout activities performance by using your iPhone. When you are done with your workout, upload your tracks on the web and share them with your friends. SportyPal logs your position, shows it on map, logs your movement, distance, tempo and calories burned while working out.
You activate SportyPal when you start your workout. When you finish exercising, the collected performance information will be stored on your iPhone. SportyPal will present each exercise in a map view, draw elegant graphics charts of your performance or present summarized information.
SportyPal provides clean and neat design, simplicity of use, satisfactory functionalities and you can embrace its benefits by using both the mobile and the web clients.
