Rather than looking at google maps and trying to figure out a route to record with a fitness app these utilities take inputs of distance and shape then map a route.
Everybody loves playing outside. FigureRunning is a new sport that encourages you to get creative, go outside and discover new places while running and getting fit. The competition is not about your running speed or distance, it’s all about drawing.
The Trace App turns digital sketches into a walking route that your friends get to decipher by following it.
