GPS distance and location tracker (old name: GPS Location Recorder) is easy to use, accurate, battery efficient, and works like a charm.
Perfect as a distance tracker for walking, distance tracker for running, distance tracker for cycling, hiking or other outdoor distance-based activity. Or to just save a position/waypoint.

Easy to use:
Saving and sharing a GPS location/waypoint or a route has never been easier.

A lot of time is used to make the app as accurate as possible. That means that the distance the app reports
should be as correct as possible using advanced algorithms to read data from the GPS reciever in the phone.
(How accurate the app can be depends on the GPS receiver on the phone. In general
you might say that newer phones has better GPS recievers than old ones, and expensive phones has better GPS recievers than cheap phones.)
When using this app you get accurate data when you track your running, walking, cycling, biking, skiing, hiking etc.

Battery efficient:
By using advanced algorithms, operations that consumes battery is kept to a minimum.

By using the GPS in your Android phone you can track all your outdoor distance-based activity.

    Nearly five star, for some reason if I press the home button while logging on my Samsung s3 it stops logging until I switch back to this app and start it logging again. Would be great if it worked in the background.

    It does what is supposed to do. Save coordinates when you want and share them as text. Simple to use, no complex settings or too many menus
