AndroidTapp.com Android App Review:
Buddy Runner Android App is great for outdoor runners and walkers! It keeps track of your Time, Distance, Pace and Calories burned, which can be emailed to yourself. A good app to have when working out using the power of Android, as you can listen to your tunes and track your workout to compare your progress later. View your results on Google Maps. During workouts at set intervals and when you stop a workout, the stats are read aloud to you.
When you assign an email address to your Dashboard, this gives you free access to sync your data with Buddy Runners’ website… to get more reporting information on workouts such as charts, accurate Google Maps paths, and data export.

Buddy Runner Android App is very useful for outdoor runners and walkers who would like to keep a track of their progress.
Ease of Use:
The app is easy to use or you can get more detailed in the settings menu like; setting your body weight to more accurately account for calories burned, view maps in satellite detail, configure pace calculations, change between miles/kg, and configure your Dashboard email to send progress to.
Frequency of use is user dependent, however, if this is your run/walk tracking app of choice… then it would be used every time you started your trek.
The user interface is simple, intuitive and optimized for mobile use.
