Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
rubiTrack is the ideal iPhone and iPad App for all ambitious runners, cyclists, swimmers, triathletes and athletes in practically any sport. rubiTrack records all your runs, routes and indoor and outdoor training sessions or imports them from the Cloud. It helps manage your activities, displays them on a map, helps with analyzing them and documents the training progress.
This is how rubiTrack works
Whenever you run, cycle, swim, walk, workout in the fitness center or at home, you're recording your training session using rubiTrack and an external bluetooth sensor, a GPS enabled fitness device or a heart rate monitor. rubiTrack downloads training sessions from your Mac (via rubiTrack), from your PC (via Dropbox) and from the cloud through Dropbox, Garmin Connect, Suunto Movescount and Runkeeper.
You can view your activities on a map and analyze the data using the chart and data views. All activities are grouped, sorted and included in various statistics automatically. rubiTrack also helps you manage your sports equipment and keeps detailed track of health data such as weight and other body measures. With rubiTrack you can monitor your training progress day by day and year by year.
You can keep your friends up-to-date via Facebook and Twitter and you can synchronize your recorded activities with your Mac and other iOS devices. rubiTrack is the most comprehensive training journal for iPhone and iPad that supports you in every aspect of your day-to-day training routine. Using WiFi sync with rubiTrack on your Mac you can make sure that all your activities and fitness data is accessible and current on all your devices.
Organize & Manage
In the collection view and the calendar, rubiTrack helps organize, sort and group your training sessions. Keep detailed records of the weather, used equipment and general training conditions for each session.
Maps and Chart
rubiTrack comes with hi-resolution satellite imagery and terrain maps for Retina display and supports a number of different OpenStreetMap maps. rubiTrack displays tracks with stops, peaks, lap markers, zones and it lets you interact with the track to analyze every aspect of it. Selections you make in the map are reflected in the chart and you can switch between chart and map or view them side-by-side (iPad only). Some of the charts you can work with are speed, pace, heart rate, elevation profile, climb rate and many more.
rubiTrack maintains detailed statistics over all your training sessions by days, weeks, months and years. Track your performance improvements over time and analyze training stress values and bests.
Import & Record
rubiTrack syncs with other iOS devices or Macs running rubiTrack (v3.2.5+) and downloads data from the cloud from services like Dropbox, Garmin Connect, Suunto Movescount, RunKeeper, Withings and Fitbit. Using the Recorder, you can record training sessions including heart rate, cadence and power (requires compatible Bluetooth LE sensors). The recorder is fully customizable, you can configure where and which of the available values are displayed.
File Formats: TCX (Garmin Training Center), GPX (GPS eXchange Format), FIT (Garmin), FITLOG (Sporttracks activities), LOGBOOK (Sporttracks weight log), XML (Nike+iPod), NMEA LOG (NMEA GPS), HRML (Polar), XML (Polar polarpersonaltrainer.com), SDF (Suunto), XML (Suunto Moveslink Ambit), PWX (Trainingpeaks/Peaksware), CSV (MotoACTV).
Keep track of your weight, heart rates, blood pressure and other body measurements. You can import data from Sportstrack, Fitbit, Withings, Runkeeper or rubiTrack. The athlete log displays values in a chart and lets you enter new data easily and effortlessly.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
What's New in Version 1.2.3
* Fixes a problem with downloading activities from Garmin Connect.
Overall a okay, over-priced companion app to the desktop software. Would like to see the integration of Apple maps and iCloud sync.
Also, a few things about sharing. First, the ability to share the actual tracks from the app (the .gpx file, not just the stats) would be nice. Second, the 'open in another app' function is broken. You can choose an app, but nothing happens. Also, importing tracks into the app freezes the app time and time again. These issues are disappointing for such an expensive app.
Doesn’t link with HRM
I loved the detailed data on the desktop app, but when I purchased this one for iPhone it won’t read my heart rate monitor. It shows the bluetooth connection, but the sensor itself (Polar) doesn’t show up. (The HRM works just fine in Strava/RunKeeper/etc.) I’m really disappointed—this app seemed great for privacy, too, if you don’t want random people tracking your data and all…but it just doesn’t seem to work well.
Syncing is lame
Let me get this straight, you write an application that only runs on Apple platforms and the only syncing method you leave out is iCloud?
Okay, fine, I'll use wifi syncing. Oh, wait, that doesn't work. The iPhone sees itself and the iPad sees itself, but they don't see each other on the same network? Uh... Okay I guess I'll sync the phone with itself. Thanks, that's super useful.
