Are you shortly going to support a friend or family at a running event? Have you heard about the MyWhereAbouts app for iPhones? The basic principles behind the app are to keep an athlete’s friends and family either at an event or anywhere in the world informed of their progress, pace and location through real-time ‘Tweets’ or ‘Posts’ to Twitter and Facebook. Now when you go to an event you can see directly on your iPhone where your athlete is on the course, which allows you to confidently move to points on the route to cheer him or her on!
As you would expect the app has all the usual features of a running training app along with the added functionality for charity runners to post their ‘Giving’ page website link on every update during the race to help drive those last minute donations.
If you are interested then please look at their Facebook page
(www.Facebook.com/MyWhereAbouts) for more information, screen images and the many other day to day uses the app has for people on the move who want to keep Friends, Family and running club members informed of their real-time progress and location.
If you want to download the app go to: http://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/mywhereabouts/id471869360?mt=8
Apparently Android and Blackberry versions of the app will also be available very soon.
