  1. Great post. there are a wealth of fitness apps out there and it has become quite a task trying to find the right one for what you are trying to achieve. I still feel developers could take this a little further and bring a much more social/sharing element to it.

    I think fitocracy goes there to an extent but if there was an app that allowed you to interact with other people aiming for the same goals, then match up with them somehow, that could be extremely powerful and engaging.
