Kinetic is the Swiss Army knife of GPS tracking and timing: configurable, expandable and beautifully designed. The perfect iPhone app for running, cycling, hiking, walking or simply tracking where you go.


" I swore by CycleTracker until I found this. That's not to disparage CycleTracker at all, which still does the job nicely. But Kinetic is by far simpler, cleaner, more intuitive, and has all the same features in a much easier to use design. It also syncs with Daily Mile, which is likewise a much smarter and simpler fitness tracker than CycleTracker has with Training Peaks. " - Customer review by JDob

Lately this app has been crashing my phone. Also, the whole constant insistence on always “calibrating” really gets old.It has
