Hmm some kind sport tracker would be interesting add to Maps. Like "Follow me" option that records your route until you close it or you have stayed still long enough. Just an idea.

Lets keep Jolla users healthy ^^

Android apps like Endomondo, Runtastic,Runkeeper and Sports-Tracker seems to work, at least some parts of the program. Sports-Tracker app syncs with ST-servers but doesn't download maps and you can't pair your HRM, probably a bluethooth-dalvik-ST issue. A native sailfish app is still on the wishlist but at least ST team have said that they won't support sailfish at the moment.

@muovimaker I guess you are referring android apps. Since I already have long running history in their database, I recently asked from Sports Tracker support about their plans on native Jolla version, and they seems to be in 'wait and see' mode until Jolla gets into masses.

@sportstracking has been asked on twitter and as of 22.1.2014 no plans and no comment on ways on how to advance the issue.

One can install Sports Tracker using some apk downloader, but it doesn't show the map, and heart rate monitor can't be used. Those make it almost not useful, and Sports Tracker is one of the reasons I still cling on to my Old Faithful N9 without a SIM card...

I also now have Fitbit Flex, and it can't communicate with Fitbit Android app via BT4LE, but that's even more complex issue involving kernel update, I think... See https://together.jolla.com/question/8589/proper-bluetooth-le-support/

I sent a message to Runkeeper support, although I got it running l8r nidelius, Apr 13 09:01: Hello! I have a Jolla phone with SailfishOS. It's possible to run andorid apps on this device. Although it seems you have blocked runkeeper from even installing onto the device through google play. Is it possible to unblock? Skickat från min Jolla nidelius, Apr 13 11:48:

On my Jolla MeeRun always crashes... not really useful at the moment. In addition ST does not work with the GPS anymore :(
