NotesHave several apps that do almost exactly the same thing. mapMyRun, mapMyRide, mapMyFitness+, mapMyWalk, mapMyHike, MapMyDOGWALK, etc. It is rather confusing to end users. Website divides up Routes vs Workouts a bit oddly. Cannot see all stats/history for a single event in one place.My Tracks seems good for recording paths, but is not very geared towards the fitness aspect. No calorie stats. It doesn't really have any kid of fitness goals, coaching, training, calendars, etc. Very limited to Android-only. Very detailed control of measurement capture intervals.
Popularity1,000,000 - 5,000,000 installs for MapMyRun Alone. Difficult to track because of all variations of the same app.Seems quite popular with iPhone usersMore popular in Europe than US. 1,000,000 - 5,000,000 installs500,000 - 1,000,000 Installs
