JUDGES REVIEW

Ask anyone what they really think about exercise and they’ll probably say something like ‘better now that it is done’. The hardest part of any exercise program is getting motivated to do it, which is why so many people sign New Year’s health club contracts and drop out after month or two. This is why apps like Runtastic and it suite of related programs are so popular. A lot of people use their smartphone to listen to music when exercising, and having a personalized tracker in your hand to monitor progress and assign goals is a plus.

Runtastic does a lot of what other mobile exercise apps do, like track distance and figure out calories burnt. However, it takes thing a step or two further by interacting with your GPS to show where you have run, monitoring heart rate zones and setting goals. You can also share your progress with your friends in real-time, and they literally can cheer you on as you hit your wall or maybe that all-important first mile for beginners. It can also help with interval training and more serious athletic goals – taking motivation to the max.

The best part is Runtastic is part of a series of apps that target specific athletic endeavors like winter sports, mountain biking and even pushups. The only thing missing is a vibrating alert when your workout course brings you too close to cupcakes and ice cream, but who would really want an app that did that!

MOBILE APPS SHOWDOWN
LVCC, North Hall
Competition: January 9, 2014, Room N255

The Mobile Apps Showdown is a fast-paced contest where you're asked to weigh in on the apps you think have what it takes to make it. For the months leading up to the 2013 CES, we'll be presenting the contestants to you. You can try the apps, watch demos, make your feelings known, and ultimately vote on a winner. We're platform agnostic, so if it's mobile, it's in the competition.

The top ten apps will join us at 2014 CES for an action packed event hosted by Jon Hein and Gary Dell'Abate from the Howard Stern Wrap Up Show.
