My Tracks Android App:
My Tracks records your path, speed, distance, and elevation while you walk, run, bike, or do anything else outdoors. While recording, you can view your data live, annotate your path, and hear periodic voice announcements of your progress.
With My Tracks, you can store your tracks with Google Drive, Google Maps, Google Fusion Tables, or Google Spreadsheets, or export your tracks to external storage. With Google Drive, you can also sync your tracks, share tracks with friends, and see the tracks your friends have shared with you. With Google Maps, you can share the map url with friends via Google+, Facebook, Twitter, etc. With export to external storage, you can select GPX, KML, CSV, or TCX format.
My Tracks uses the GPS sensor in your device to record geographic and velocity statistics, but the app also syncs with third-party biometric sensors, including:
– Zephyr HxM Bluetooth heart rate monitor
– Polar WearLink Bluetooth heart rate monitor
– ANT+ heart rate and speed distance monitors (these require an ANT+ compatible phone)

User Reviews of My Tracks
This app went from being ok to excellent. It now allows you to sync across devices. The data is/can be stored on your Google drive so you can see it and access it yourself. You can also bring up your tablet, then see your run on there just like any other device . I like the open nature of this. The data is not buried in some internal file, rather, it is clearly available on Google drive. You can even move the generated files where you want (it will put them in root by default) . It has no affect on the the functionality of the app. – Tim Anderson
Great app, but the lock screen widget in v2.0.4 is death to your battery and causes major phone heating. I removed the widget that I added to the lock screen, and all is well (I did not have to uninstall the whole app). I’m on a Nexus 4. – Andrew Vaughan
