Well, Google a well known top-rated multinational corp, is a group who always focus on its users. Since then the start from their search engine & now they own an anonymous number of products such YouTube, Android, Blogger… etc. And almost half of them are benefiting users with no cost (approx 70% – 85% free for users). I should say, that I’m a die-hard fan of Google as it serves me in many ways. I also believe that it serves you the same.
Today, I’m going to write about an application which was there from a long time but most us never known nor used it. Well, It;s My Tracks which were officially released by google itself. To be honest, I did not know about this app until my buddy Arvind (a newbie android developer from India) shows it to me. This application is nothing fancy, but it does wonders.
My Tracks, is an android application which records your GPS tracks and shows live statistics such as time, speed, distance, and elevation – while hiking, cycling, running or participating in other outdoor activities.
