What can you use the app for?

Endomondo is a combination app, website and community designed to help you set and track your fitness goals. The application uses GPS data to monitor your speed and distance as you run, walk, cycle, and swim, and assists you in monitoring improvement in your performance. You can set routes to follow, or make it up as you go along and check in after your exercise is done.

Endomondo supports dozens of different exercises, though due to its reliance on GPS data works best with those than involve moving from one location to another. The app also tracks the times and performance of your friends in the Endomondo community, which in turn gives you the ability to break their records or offer up challenges.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Endomondo was founded in 2008 by Christian Birk, Mette Lykke and Jakob Janck. Since its launch, the application has grown rapidly in terms of userbase, celebrating its five millionth application download in fall of 2011. Endomondo continues to grow, thanks in large part to its embrace of Facebook and wide availability on a variety of operating systems.
In June 2012, it was announced that Endomondo had reached 10 million users.

What are the differences to other apps?

Endomondo is more than just an app for tracking your personal goals—it tracks and reports your friends as well. Because of this, Endomondo prefers to think of itself as more of a community than an application, and regularly encourages members to compete in official and unofficial challenges. Endomondo has a robust route-setting tool that allows you to build custom fitness paths through your city, which activate automatically when your GPS coordinates align with a starting point. Additionally, Endomondo’s very cool Facebook Timeline integration lets you show off your accomplishments to your social media circle.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

Endomondo is smooth and intuitive—each of the app’s features are easy to access and organized in a manner that makes sense. There is some difference between the iOS and Android versions of the software, but overall it is a streamlined, convenient way to check in on your fitness goals. Activating Endomondo and hitting the road shouldn’t delay you from your exercise, and the interface is built with this in mind. The website follows a similar philosophy, making it simple to set goals and build routes.

How does the registration process work?

Registration is completely free. Simply offer your email address and create a password, then accept the terms and conditions. During the registration process, you’ll be able to sync up with registered friends already using the app (after you confirm your email address, of course). You can also sign up directly from your Facebook account, assuming you want to sync the app with your social media presence.

What does it cost to use the application?

Endomondo is free to use, both online and on your phone. Neither the Android nor the iPhone version of the app requires an upfront or subscription-based payment, and the website is available to users free of charge.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Endomondo is a great app for anyone looking to stay fit and make healthy changes in their lives. The Facebook Timeline integration makes it easy to earn support from the people you care about, and the constant challenges and friend updates help keep you inspired along your path to physical fitness. And, since it’s free, Endomondo is excellent for anyone trying to shape up on a budget.
