Runkeeper comes across as the most holistic pedometer application as you open it and after using it for long, we believe it is true.

This application lets you develop a training schedule, set targets, review the old ones and challenge yourself to become healthier.

Runtastic Pedometer

There might be a huge range of pedometer apps available at the Google play store, but few of them stand out due to unrivalled accuracy and an interface that is appealing. Runtastic Pedometer is one such application that is known for the accuracy of its measurement, thanks to the developers. The interface painted in purple is designed in a sense that it gives a pleasant impression. The one advantage this application gives is that you can link it to your Google or Facebook accounts and share your running experience with your friends. Thus, you can compete with your best friend just like you would if you were running together. Like other essential applications, it helps you calculate the speed, distance, the time taken, the calories burnt and the step frequency as well. You can toggle with the units and vary the sensitivity as well.

Mobile Upgrades: Killing The Product Before Its Time?

Have to agree. The speed of newer phone models within the same series and newer app versions lead to more thought put into buying decisions. Phone lines have a definite short shelf life

Frequently upgrading the software is a real problem as updating the software might cause your phone to lag because of the older hardware.

They should come out with upgrades for the specific phones and not for the separate Operating System. This way a special version for your phones specific hardware can be made
