Best running apps for BlackBerry

MobileFitIt's fitness month here at Mobile Nations. Are you ready? I have enjoyed fitness month the past two years and I quite like that we're doing it in June this year. It's warmer and I think more people will jump in this time. If you're looking into running then this post is for you. We've compiled a list the best running apps on BlackBerry 10, see which one tickles your fancy and give it a try.

CascaRun Sports Tracker/Pro


CascaRun is a native BlackBerry 10 app, so you know it will run smooth. Although the name contains the word 'run' in it, the app is a general sports tracking app. You can track hikes, jogs, bike rides and more. While running you can display a live, if you wanted. It even has it's own 'lockscreen' where you can glance at your total running time and distance. There is also a shortcut to toggle the flashlight for those that go on night runs.

CascaRun comes with a free version and a pro version. With the pro version you can get some extra features like audio feedback (choice between English or German), heart rate monitoring (requires heart rate monitor, connects via Bluetooth), more map availability and more stats. 

CascaRun doesn't require you to login or register an account. The back draw with that is you can't sync it to anything.

CascaRun Sports Tracker is free version, if you want to dive in and get the pro version, that costs $4.99.

Sports Tracker

Sports Tracker

Sports Tracker is another natively built BlackBerry 10 app. Sports Tracker is also an app found on other platforms. It requires registration and this will sync up your account with all your devices. It is also an app that can be used for other sports apart from running. It tracks your distance, total time, average pace and more. Just like CascaRun, you can see your run on a map.

Sports tracker is free and available for all BlackBerry 10 devices.

Endomondo is one of the more popular apps used for running. While you can find it available to download in BlackBerry World for BlackBerry 10, it is an Android but it does work well. I haven't had any issues with it. Endomondo is my preferred running app, since my legacy BlackBerry days. If you're looking for one to use on BlackBerry OS devices you will find Endomondo available. There's a free version and pro version available.

The Android ported version for BlackBerry 10 is free, there is a prompt to upgrade to a premium Endomondo account via subcription. The pro version on legacy and the premium account on BlackBerry 10 will give you a step count, graphs to go along with your maps, custom voice feedback and more.

Runtastic PRO

Runtastic PRO

Runtastic is another app popular on other platforms and needs an account so you can sync your information. Just like Endomondo, this was available on legacy BlackBerry devices and when it came to BlackBerry 10, they ported the Android app over. Though, just like Endomondo, it runs pretty smoothly. 

Runtastic on legacy devices come with a free version and a pro version. On BlackBerry 10 all you have is a pro version. Much like all the other apps mentioned here, Runtastic will track your total distance, time, calories burned, speed and more. The pro version includes audio feedback, autopause, split table analysis and more.

Couch 2AnyK

Couch 2AnyK Pro

Unlike all the previous apps mentioned here, Couch 2AnyK Pro isn't a tracking up. This is an app aimed at those who want to start running. It features a program to get your running 5k in nine weeks. As with anything, it starts slow with interval running where you alternate between walking and jogging/running until you have built up stamina to run for longer periods.

If you want to start running, I recommend Couch 2AnyK Pro. It's available for all BlackBerry 10 devices. There's a free version and a pro version for $0.99.
