Runtastic is a running app with international popularity. The app tracks time, distance, speed, calories and elevation. The Runtastic app uses Google Maps to help you discover new routes in your area, view past runs with a heat map to show when you were at a slow or fast clip and save routes for future use. You can create personalized interval training on the fly as well as use Runtastic’s pre-made training plans. With the pro version, you can have “live tracking” and your friends can cheer you on during your run. Runtastic goes beyond its running app and offers road bike, mountain bike, winter sports and walking apps.
