I just upgraded from the droid 1 to the samsung fascinate, it's android run. I love it! and having the SP app on it is wonderful when I'm out and about.

I DL'd the Spark app and Healthy Recipes. Also found an app that tracks blood pressure (and DL's to a spreadsheet to print for your doc), and a GREAT program (OurGroceries) - that you can sync your grocery list online and on your phone. You can share your list with anyone you want (hubby, spouse, child) if they have a Blackberry, Android, or Palm.

I have Motorola Droid also. Don't think it's the X -- it has a touchscreen and a qwerty keyboard. Haven't downloaded too many apps -- have the SP app but that is all.

Peace. Love. Dog kisses.

Thanks, SBlue! I will look for that in the App Market. It's just been too darn hot to walk outside here (temps in the high 90s, heat index over 100). Will have to wait till Sept/Oct to test the other 2, but I like the idea that you can use it for treadmill walking, too!!

I have cardio trainer. It's a gps app that tells you cals burned, speed, distance. It maps out your walk using gps. It will talk to you if you want and will tell you how far u are going. If you want to walk a treadmill instead, you can turn off the gps related stuff. It has other options besides walking too, like biking. I find it very useful. It's free so give it a try.

Size 14- GONE
Size 12- Gone
Size 10- Perfect fit!
Size 8- Almost there!
Size 6- A fine goal
Size 4- Goal!
Size 2- Only if I'm not too skinny
Size 0- Too small for any adult!

Thanks Maria and Daniry! I have a Backflip, so I downloaded both SmartRunner and EndoMondo. Will have to see if I can run both of them simultaneously to see which one I like better!

Good morning! I use the free app called "endomondo" on my droid. It tracks distance, duration (time), speed, and calories burned if you input weight/height. It lets you choose the type of exercise too. You can upload it to the website and track your fitness there too. Pretty cool!

I have an app called Runner and another one called SmartRunner, but I haven't tried them out yet. I downloaded them on Friday but have been stuck in the house with a sick child all weekend. They use GPS and had good ratings. Try SmartRunner first. They were both free apps. Looks promising.

Well I use that to track my calories and workouts, but I am looking for something that can time my jogs and use GPS to map it out for me to tell me how far I went.

Other than the C25K app in the market, is there any other app that someone can recommend? I know there are a few that track your time, speed, route, etc. I have a G1, with Android version 1.6
