Tracking Your Runs: Runkeeper vs. iMapMyRun
Posted by: Spencer // May 13 2010
Ever since I got on a weight loss kick, I’ve been getting out to walk and ride my bike for exercise. Being a techo geek, I’ve been using my iPhone and one of two apps to track my distances, routes, and times. Keeping track of your exercises is a great way to measure your progress. Since the iPhone has an active Internet connection and GPS along with a built-in iPod, this makes it a perfect workout partner. So which app did I like? Here are a few of my thoughts.
First off, here are a few standard features that each apps share:
Banks is filming across the street from my office. Philly is taking
the place of Manhattan. Funny to see all the NYC cabs, police cars,
and street signs (apparently 21st & Market is a dead ringer for 7th
ave & 54th st)
More naught goodness.
81. One Beat (2002) – Sleater-Kinney
82. All This Time (2006) – Heartless Bastards
83. Welcome Interstate Managers (2003) – Fountains of Wayne
84. The Crane Wife (2007) – The Decemberists
85. Turn On the Bright Lights (2002) – Interpol
86. Lost in Space (2002) – Aimee Mann
87. Five Star Motel (2002) – Andy Stochansky
88. The Alternative to Love (2005) – Brendan Benson
89.Meaningless (2000) – Jon Brion
90. Beautiful Creature (2000) – Juliana Hatfield
comments: Everything Sleater-Kinney releases is worth owning – I hope they come back. Fountains of Wayne, Aimee Mann, Brendan Benson, and Jon Brion make this the power-pop 10. Juliana Hatfield’s Beautiful Creature is an album that I forgot about but in putting this list together, I went back and realized that she came of age with this album.
