    "Strava for better"


    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.

    Freezes/crashes or incorrectly tracks and measures nearly every run. A little disappointed!

    For 3 consecutive days now the app either fails to acquire the GPS signal or stops tracking mid-run...

    I love the app and use it to track all my runs. I really appreciate that there is no add banners at all even in the free version ! Thank you ! It's sad though that the setting goals feature is only for premium. In runkeeper for example this is part of the free app.
