Sports Tracker for Windows Phone updated with Live Tile support and more

The award-winning Windows Phone app Sports Tracker has received a fairly large update. Version introduces Live Tile support, a bunch of bug fixing and improvements, as well as a lockscreen data feed and much more.

If you're not familiar with the app, it tracks and analyzes your performance while engaging in a sports activity such as running, jogging, or cycling. You can monitor your distance, duration, speed, pace, and energy spent. The training diary syncs with the service for further analysis.

Here are some highlighted features in the latest version:

  • New WP8 GPS interface, which means improved accuracy
  • Facebook & Twitter sharing bug fixed
  • Live tiles
  • Lock screen data feed, even during workouts (has to be activated in phone’s settings)
  • Settings from previous workout are used as default values when new workout is started
  • Lots of other fixes

Check the official Sports Tracker blog for the full change log. You can download Sports Tracker from the Windows Phone store. Source: Sports Tracker Blog; thanks, Ewert, for the tip!
