CreationPal has released an application called Sportypal that will run not only on every WM phone, but also on any type of phone that has GPS built-in.
It uses the GPS in the phone to track speed, distance, calories burned, elevation during an activity (running, cycling, hiking, rollerblading, skiing, walking… )
The application, while doing your workout, has a really nice screen with some additional real time information like speed/pace, distance covered, max speed and climb. You also have the ability to change to a map view that will use Google Maps to display your location. After your workout is over, it allows you to upload it to the SportyPal website.
Once the workout is uploaded you can see the route of your movement as well as more detailed data.
You will see icons on the map for things like: Start, Stop, Fastest Speed, Highest Elevation and few other tools for manualy selecting checkpoints from your track to analyze separated parts from your workout.
The options to share your workout with other users in the community section who are also using this web service and share their workouts with you is available.
As well as to share your workout with all the other social networks like Facebook, Twitter, MySpace… And to embed your workout maps.
The embedded maps are fully interactive Google Maps, and include whatever the original Maps page displayed. Very helpful tool if you want to show people the place you’re writing about in a blog post, or if you’re organising an event and want to show people where it is.
