PreCentral: App Review: JogStats

Recommended Posts

JogStats

Way back in the day when you went for a run, you just ran. Then came the Walkman, which brought music. Pedometers gave us our first logging capabilities, but that was fairly rudimentary. In recent years you could go with a fairly rudimentary and exceedingly expensive GPS-based tracker, but the user experience of those almost always left something to be desired. Fast forward to today, a time where every smartphone platform has multiple inexpensive apps that not only can track your run live, they log it with more information and analysis at your fingertips than we've ever had before.

One such app for webOS is JogStats, a $3.49 creation by Rusty Apps. JogStats brings a level of polish and webOS-ness that some other run tracker apps lack, and has the added bonus of being mostly functional. Unlike some other run trackers, JogStats does not have a cloud backend, which while this means you can't automatically backup your runs and look at them from other devices, it also means (1) you don't have to deal with needed a data connection (GPS tracking is going to drain your battery fast enough) and (2) you don't have to futz around with online systems that change while the webOS app is left abandoned. The question is how willing you are to live without web access to your logs.

    • Palm is Back with a New Palm Phone Companion

      If you are webOS enthusiast, you remember Palm as the brand that brought you webOS 1.0 on a smart phone before it was sold to HP fro Touchpads and then LG for Smart TVs. Today, we have webOS off to LG and the Palm brand off to TCL Communications. We have been waiting to see what was to come with palm and today we have a new website that's up and a cool gadget, dubbed a "companion".

We’re working with TCL Communication to manufacture Palm and exclusively launching with Verizon Wireless in the United States, establishing the new ultra-mobile category."
