Awesome App to Track and Share Your Fitness Activities
August 15, 2010 Leave a comment
The app from a start-up company called Skimble offers a web and mobile experience designed for the fitness enthusiast who wants to thoroughly track and share their sports, gym or outdoorsy activities. The app is currently for iPhone. I think they will be releasing their app and Android version soon.
It’s indeed such an awesome app and a must have for anyone wanting to break out of the couch and TV lifestyle. Perfect for runners. It tracks how far you run, compares to previous runs and calories burned.
Skimble’s app taps into the iPhone GPS that let’s you to set your workout and activity trip location and share geotagged “action shots.” Skimble’s activity tracking tool focuses on helping you create a calendar and schedule of your activities, and will chart out your performance based upon time spent on the activity. You can also compare your progress to a friend’s.
Skimble doesn’t skip over the important specifics that distinguish each and every workout. When it comes to yoga, for instance, the apps let you track full yoga sessions or granularly specify the individual yoga poses you completed. You can typically define the type, style and difficulty level for each activity you complete as well. The yoga option, for example, includes a menu of various yoga styles and lets you specify whether you’re a beginner, intermediate or advanced yogi.
Skimble is also designed to be social in nature, so you can share workouts and accomplishments with friends via Facebook or Twitter, check out what fitness activities your Skimble friends have completed and see what others nearby are up to.
Their $24.99 per year pro plan also includes an offline tracking mode, progress charts and a fancy pro sash for your profile.
