CascaRun

The popular BlackBerry 10 sports tracking application CascaRun has received yet another update and this one brings a ton of new features and improvements. If you are into recording your fitness workouts then this one is probably the perfect application. You can also use it in the car if you fancy - I'm loving the fact that this update brings a special improvement for German users - the speedometer will now record up to 250km/h!

Whether you are into jogging, cycling, skiing, hiking or more CascaRun has you covered. And with voice technology to keep you notified on your progress it's kind of like having your personal training partner. 

CascaRun is priced at £2.50/$3.99 and for what you get for your money it's a real bargain - especially with the big list of new treats in this latest update.
