    This sounds nice, this app is fantastic! I’m doing University assignment about your app, and I would more than appreciate if I could know how many times the app has been downloaded globally and what is the average age of the user. :) Thanks!

    Hallo aus Österreich! Ich bin mit Sports Tracker wirklich sehr zufrieden. Tolle App die ich wirklich empfehlen kann. Sportliche Grüße aus Wien! Alles Gute für alle und das die Welt weiterhin friedlich zu erlaufen ist.

    Have just started using sports tracker again – liked previous version but on this version cannot even work out how to start a new work out – still trying after an hour. How do you actually start a new work out – the old version was much more straightforward

    1. The Sports Tracker Team

      Which version do you have Android or iOS, Craig? If you have iOS, you simply open the app and choose the sport you want to track. Tap go, and you’re off!

    1. The Sports Tracker Team

      Thanks for the thumbs up, Dennis. Yeah, when you see info like this it really hits home how successful it is at helping people live better, healthier lives. And wow! some those stats are insane :)

  6. Kalle

    It’s nice to see that ST has used all around the world where people lives.

    1. The Sports Tracker Team

      We totally agree, Kalle! Hopefully, we’re going to soon start showcasing how different people in different parts of the world use Sports Tracker. Watch this space.

    That’s great. I like Sportstracker. But when comes a Button for E-Bikes? A lot people use a E-Bike, that’s not a Mountainbike and not a Cyclingbike, maybe there’s a possability to make a new Sport-Symbole for E-Biking ;-)))

    1. Sandra

      And I wish you all a happy, healthy 2017!

      I use Sportstracker since July 2013, for all my Cyclingtours, Walking and Hiking. Thanks for your good Job!

    a mis 70 años de edad recorro practicamente a diario entre 7 y 12 kms en la modalidad de senderismo por lo que parece que estoy por encima de la media y mis fotos segun deportistas asiduos de Sport Tracker, estan muy valoradas por todos. Atentamente.
