Runkeeper VS Runtastic

I started using Runkeeper 5 years ago to keep track of my runs, I’m not anythig close to a profesional runner, when I started Runkeeper allowed me to add the couch to 5K walk run plan and adhere to it, and keep recording any run.

At that time I had an iPhone 2 I guess, I also had it on iPhone 3 and 4 , I never used on iPhone 5 since I moved to Samsung Galaxy Note 2, it woked there too altought the size of phone was too big to take it while runnin….

I lost the Note 2 on a trip to Cancun, and then I bought a Moto G first Gen as a temporary replacement, but c’mon Moto G is so good that I realized I don’t relly need to oay big bucks for a good phone, so I still keep it as my primary phone.

But ther is a problem, Runkeeper is very low on the Moto G, it lags a lot and sometimes even crash….

I find out about Runtastic, Downloaded, Installed, Signed In, Run….. Great is very fast even in the Moto G, no lag, no crash, I start tracking my runs. I decided to move to Runtastic.

Thanks to the GPX export/import feature, I was able to export from Runkeeper my last tracks and imported them into Runtastic, so I can see my improvents in the same app.

How to stop phone addiction

Mobile phones have come to solve a lot of stuff in terms of communication and entertaining.
Nowadays a lot of people can be considered addicted to their phones.
It’s very common to see people gathering together but everybody is just with it’s own phone. Chatting online, updating facebook, twitter, playing games etc, etc.

The first step to stop the phone addiction can be very simple:
-Turn off sound (or vibration) notifications.
-Turn off led light notification (if your mobile has one).
-Turn off all notifications for things like games, social media, etc, etc.

The result will be that you will start to check your phone when you want to. Not every time an app or some contact wants you to.

This will not keep you completely clean from your addiction…. but at least is a start.
Good Luck!
