We've featured CascaRun Sports Tracker a few times here on CrackBerry and for those of you that were impressed but not enough to part with your cash you can now grab the new free version of the fitness application. 

CascaRun has just been updated to version 1.7.0 and while the changes are not huge - every little helps. Plus you can't get better than the introduction of a free version. 

If you are into your sports and require a tracking app to monitor your routes, times etc then give this one a try - it's quite a gem and is available for all BlackBerry 10 devices. In addition, it's native and also has the 'Built for BlackBerry' stamp. 

The FREE version includes:

  • very accurate tracking (running, biking, inline-skating, skiing, hiking and... driving)
  • easy to use monitoring: distance, time, current/average speed/pace, calories, laps, ...
  • split tables (0.5km, 1km, 2km, ..., manual splits) during and after workouts
  • high performance map
  • powerful reviewing and statistics
  • very low energy usage
  • no ads, no account required

The PRO version additionally offers:

  • high-quality audio-feedback
  • heart rate monitoring
  • Interactive review with timeline/navigation bar
  • online and offline charts (speed, intervals, elevation, heart rate, ...)
  • altitude correction and elevation profile
  • auto-pause
  • more map providers (OpenCycleMap, MapQuest, OpenAerial, Landscape, ...)
  • e-mail and social sharing
  • GPX import/export

Most important changes in version 1.7.0:

  • Elevation profile with altitude sections (grades, elevation)
  • New pie chart and statistics for heart rate monitoring
  • UI improvements

Will try this out and compare it to sportrate. Will then choose to purchase one of those two. Exciting stuff!

Sportrate and Endomondo are the best! Unfortunately runtastic doesn't work for me.. But will try this app also.

it's the best sports tracking app for BB10 it works very accurate and reliable for me on Q10. I am using it for months...

Maybe a nice app, but i wanted to see its sharing capability before buying, especially its integration in Facebook, sadly free version has no sharing at all, so i guess i have to pass on this app again :( does anyone know how its sharing style compares to endomondo?

I brought Sportrate and didn't really like the limitations or lack of auto splits. Also the map was basic. Was hoping more from the paid version so learnt my lesson.

Using this free version on the bus in driving mode I quite like! Very fast gps pickup and the UI looks better!

Will give this one a few trial runs but so far I like it!

Been using this app for a long time. Used to be an Endomondo enthusiast/ loyalist. This app kicks it's arse. Good enough to buy twice and keeps getting better. The voice feedback options are the best in the business. Once they add in some stationary exercises it will be perfect.

I've been using this app for a while now for walking, jogging, and cycling, and I've even imported workouts from Endomondo. For the past two months, I've been using this in conjunction with Couch 2AnyK Pro for me and my 13 year old daughter. I'm trying to get into better shape, and I wanted to help her with soccer.
This is a fantastic app.

I can't say enough good things about this app. I've been using it extensively lately (Canada weather) and the improvements over last years version are quite remarkable and it was good back then.

I've been playing around with the audio feedback and shortcut buttons and am thoroughly impressed. They've expanded sharing to every way you can imagine including facebook, BBM, text, Twitter the list goes on and on..
GPS and Heart Rate monitoring are extremely reliable. The heart rate zones are customizable to your preference/fitness level. There are even music interruption options.

This is one of my absolute favourite apps on BB10. If you buy the pro version I can't imagine you regretting it.

Update: I can't wait to try the new auto-pause feature!! This dev is top notch in my books.

I have this and love it. Needs a little cleanup on the settings for imperial and metric settings but that is a minor gripe.

I wish it had a Web interface like Runkeeper though. Also not sure if this app uploads my data to a server for backup purposes but that doesn't matter that much.

This app is kickass! The dev is very repsonsive and dedicated to excel. Emailed with him a couple of times and thrilled to see all stuff we talked about incorporated! Love the minimalist design and dark theme! :)

Been using it with Polar HRM and no probs at all!

CascaRun is a great piece of software. One of the rare quality products to be found in BlackBerry World.

I'm pleased to see this latest update now allows the user to set the CascaRun units of measure independently of the phone's default setting.

In a future version I would like to see the ability to export tracks directly to KML.
