6 most useful running applications for beginners (Part 1)

Nowadays, with the popularity of smartphones, running becomes much more interesting with applications used by millions of users around the world to track running results.

The 6 best running apps in this article will help you get more excited and accomplish the goals on the run. Let’s check out what they are!

1. Strava jogging application

This is one of the “top” applications of running applications. Strava has a large user community, not only in running but also in other sports: swimming, cycling, triathlon, etc. Strava has all the features that runners need: measuring speed , distance, compare your running performance against your friends and others on the same distance.

You can sync running results from your Garmin, Polar, Fitbit, Timex, TomTom, and Suunto watches to your Strava account with a simple operation.

This running software is like a miniature facebook social network of lovers of jogging in particular and sports in general, allowing you to post and edit workouts with photos recording the running route you take. Strava is available on iOS and Android with 2 free and paid versions (with more advanced features, more in depth, real-time tracking, running analysis …).

2. Runkeeper jogging application

Before Strava was popular, the running community knew more about Runkeeper. Regarding social networks, Runkeeper does not support the connection as well as Strava. While Strava only records the time you move (moving time) and skip the time you rest (so the results are often “nicer”), the Runkeeper records enough of the actual running process.

With Runkeeper, you can choose some free workout schedules. Like Strava, you can share your running results on social networks Facebook, Twitter for friends and relatives to know.

3. MapMyRun jogging application

MapMyRun keeps track of running routes, distances, and speeds over time using PGS. This app has more than 5 million installers on Android. One of the outstanding features of MapMyRun is to allow you to find suitable routes, especially new ones.
