    Does one of these android apps have a running metronome? The separate apps I tried seem to crash and don’t keep up when listing to music and tracking the training (endomodopro or sportstrackerpro)

    • Admin

      Not of these have built in running metronomes but you can integrate some of the apps with your own music on your Android phone.
      Which apps have you tried that crashed? What Android phone are you using?

    I like runkeeper and endomondo pro BUT don’t like that they both give incorrect mileage and distance BEFORE hitting actual mile markers during races.

    • Sheumais

      Races, usually, are mapped out using GPS systems that are far more accurate than those built into phones. I’ve had RunKeeper track short, dead on, and long.
