Jogging, for sure, has great health benefits. Getting your day started with a running habit will definitely fill you with charisma for the entire day. Although mobile devices have tended to reduce our physical efforts, the app world has filled in with lots of exercise apps for our fat burning process. Latest on the menu is Yog for the iPhone.
Yog’s idea is to bring all joggers around the world to get a social jogging experience. It that’s some of us hate to run alone, while some others prefer a lonely walk. Whatever is you wish, Yog will help you out with its wit.
So how do things work on Yog? First of all it’s free; you can download it via iTunes. Once you have done that, you will become a Yogger and will be added to the in-app contact list. After that, get started with either scheduling a run or by entering the “Run now” option.
Scheduling will let you set the date, distance and time for your digital run. You can invite your friends around the world to take part in your run via SMS or social networks like Facebook and Twitter.
Tapping Run Now will let you to participate in many of races conducted by other Yoggers at that particular time. When a race starts, the app will track the Yoggers running details with iPhone’s GPS system and will display the results in real time.
The app also gives you audio notifications while on the run. Since the results are real time you can keep up with the pace for a fair competition.
If you are looking for some practice before taking part in a run you can switch on the Practice Runs option. In that mode, you can track your distance and time data of your jog. For now, the app is limited to trace data on 20 runners per route. May be we can see further updates that would expand the functionality.
