"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 4.0.0 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:

    Was a great app but after the update for some reason it won't track my rides. Have swapped back to using sports tracker.

    And now it doesn't highlight the categorised climbs! Poor show Strava, what are you playing at? Where have the gradient percentages gone from the segment lists too? People use this predominantly for the climbs!

    Very annoying taskbar notification won't go away! Have to manually kill Strava services to make it disappear. This must be a bug?

Finally able to load photos aftet a ride from a phone gallery instead pf instagram but wont load on gps only. Unable to see history or add manual on gps only. Tracking is better in Yosemite than my Garmins. Lots of ways to track your performance fo
