Do you have a fitness app on your iPhone at the moment? There are plenty of people that do but many don't actually use them. RunTarget is a health and fitness GPS tracking application that runners might actually use because of its user-friendliness. It provides all your running stats that you can HEAR through your headphones as well as motivating you by comparing your run with a previous one or against a friend's target pace.
RunTarget is a GPS tracking application devoted to those who enjoy running. The application not only displays your run statistics on screen but also via a synthesized voice through your mobile phones speaker or headphones. Using this application you can record all aspects of your run and save locally to your phone or to the web for later retrieval. The online storage feature allows you the choice of running against a previously recorded run, a friend’s run, or to simply a set target pace. And how about this for a bonus feature? Imagine an application that allows you to run against a friend no matter where in the world they are located or what timezone they are in. While there are many applications that allow runners to compete against their friend's best run times, RunTarget goes a step further by recording every detail of your friend's run second by second and minute by minute. So, if your friend decides to run slowly at the start of their run and speed up to a sprint at the end this will be captured and outputed to you through visual and voice feedback whilst you run. Neat, eh?
There are plenty of health and fitness applications on the market and all the best ones offer their own little stroke of genius to entice more clients. Vitogo and Fitoodle emphasize the personal trainer aspect with their apps, PaceDJ offers personalized music for motivation while FitView concentrates on the more social side of exercising. Where I see RunTarget capturing the attention of runners is with the detailed statistical analysis that you can hear through your headphones rather than having to physically check your device to find out how well you are going. What's more, this free app looks very cool on your iPhone and will in no way embarrass you in front of your friends and fellow runners. In fact, they will probably be envious.
