"Strava for better"

Reviewed by / Dec 10, 2014

Runners and cyclist will love this intuitive and motivational app


Runners and cyclists are massive fans of the the Strava app, and it’s clear to see why. Whether you're competing with yourself for a new personal best, or vying against strangers who are quicker than you, Strava brings the competition home. A great interface and strong community make this app truly worth it.


Strava has a truly simple interface. Example: if you want to switch between running or cycling, tap on the bicycle or shoe icon at the top and you’re there. It really is that easy.

GPS and mapping are super accurate, and Strava easily records your running and cycling data, comparing you with others hassle free. This community of other users is one of the app’s strongest assets, and a great motivator for competitive types.

It also supports Bluetooth and ANT devices, such as heart rate monitors. All-in-all, a thoroughly ‘freemium’ app.


Privacy could be a little better explained and protected: in-app privacy controls are limited. Goal tracking is also restricted to Premium members.

Strava depends on GPS for recording activities. In some devices, the GPS does not work properly and Strava will not record effectively. If your Strava recordings show poor location estimation behavior, please try to update the operating system to the most recent version. We recommend running Android version 2.3.3 or above. Furthermore, there are some devices which have consistently poor performance with no known remedies. On these devices we restrict installation of Strava, for example Nexus One and HTC Hero. See our support site for more information:

    I used the app to keep track of my training last summer. I also liked the encouraging email for reaching goals. Have recommended this app to others.

    Older activities can't be shared. I don't have the button shown on the Strava help sure which allows sharing. I'm on Strava 4.3
