Description

Pado is all about geo tracking.


RECORD TRACKS/ROUTES

This App provides several easy and powerful ways to record tracks or routes (for example of your hiking or cycling tours, of your trips with a motorcycle or car, workouts like jogging etc.), draw them on a map and analyze them graphically using speed and altitude profiles and bar charts.

You can start and stop recording a track manually but also fully automatically in the background, without any user interaction. Just tell the App to start and stop the recording when leaving or entering certain regions, you can even limit the recording to a certain time period, and the App will do the rest automatically.

The tracks can be exported and imported as GPX and KML.

Especially for sports activity, the App can give you status updates about speed, duration and distance using Speech output.


STEP COUNTER

Pado also has a step counter (on devices with the required hardware).


TIME TRACKING

The App provides a Time Tracking feature, which will gives you an easy way to log your whereabouts at certain regions automatically. Just define the regions you want to observe, the App is doing the rest automatically. The logged data can be presented as bar chart and exported as text or CSV file.


LOCATION-BASED ACTIONS

When entering or leaving certain regions the App can automatically record tracks, post notifications, play music, trigger "external" actions using the "WebHook" protocol and more.


ICLOUD SYNC

Tracks and regions can be synced across devices using the iCloud. This makes it easy to record tracks on an iPhone and evaluate these later on a larger iPad screen.


APPLE WATCH

Pado also supports the Apple Watch (all models) and can be used fully autonomously to record tracks or routes (which means you do not need to take the iPhone with you to use the Watch App). This does even work on Apple Watch models without GPS hardware (in which case the location services do use WLAN networks nearby to get the geo location). All tracks can be displayed directly on the Watch on a Map, and you can zoom and scroll the map with the track. Alternatively you can also use the Watch App to remote control the iPhone App.


HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS

Pado supports all iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Apple Watch devices.
Unlike many other Apps, this App does also work great on iPod Touch and iPad models without GPS hardware (but you need to be within a region with a good WLAN coverage). On devices with GPS hardware it works best. The step counter requires an iPhone 5s or newer or an Apple Watch.


HEALTH-KIT

As an option, Pado can use the heart rate data from Health-Kit and display it together with the recorded Track speed and pace charts. When recording tracks on the Apple Watch, Pado can also measure the heart rate. Pado will never store the heart rate data anywhere (neither within Pado nor externally), and will use the HealthKit data only when explicitly enabled in the settings.


FINAL NOTES

Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

What's New

Version 2.6.1

Since version 2.6, Pado includes a workaround for a bug of iOS 11.x. This iOS 11 bug has the effect that track recordings made in the background via location-based actions (geofences) will fail under a certain condition. This condition is that an iOS update was installed but the iOS was not manually rebooted afterwards. The new workaround in Pado works around this iOS 11 bug so even without manually rebooting the iOS, the track recording in the background will work. But this workaround was always active, even if no location-based action were active. This had no negative effect, but it could be confusing because the hollow compass needle was shown in the status bar. This is fixed in this update. Now the workaround is only active when needed, which means only if there are location-based actions enabled.

Ratings and Reviews

Super!!!!

Love this app!!!!!!!!

Amazing App!

I've tried the developer's browser, iCabMobile, in part because of its tight integration with LastPass. I liked it so much that I thought I should check into their other apps. Pado is the first one I've tried and I must admit, it is amazing!! I do a lot of hiking and walking, and this far exceeds what I have seen in similar apps. It tracks just about anything and does so very accurately. We recently took it on a lengthy boat trip, and I tracked it on Palo and several other leading GPS tracking apps at the same time. Pads won hands down, providing the most accurate data about the trip.....and never skipped a beat along the way!

This is a nice application to discover. Mostly used to record motorcycle rides around the Los Angeles metro region. App can be used to record any type of movement, be it on a bicycle, car, motorcycle, on foot, etc. Highly recommended if you're in the market for this type of application. Alexander, the developer, is a down to earth too. Keep up the good work. PS: update sys info widget for iOS 10 when you get the chance. thanks!
