I came across this app, and since I'm a runner I found it quite handy.Not so sure about the accuracy, but I think it should keep good track of your distance, time and calories. Needs GPS and Data

Gonna give this a try, but too bad there is not a Pearl specific version. Hopefully one of the generic java versions will work...

OTA, bitte! Danke.

Not only the software that works fine, but also the web service is way organized. I just saw that on their website now they provide a way to embed the maps on to other websites or blogs. Great stuff if you have a blog or you want to show people your rides or performances.

Yes, it works only through Wi-fi, that is the only way I have been able to upload the workouts or start the application. But I read that also on their blog because it's a beta version.

Hi there, I posted on the SportyPal forum but to no avail. I've had this on my phone for two weeks and in that time I have tried on a number of occasions to use it without success. The problem is that when you start a new workout and "GPS Initializing" starts, it is always timed out for me. I have only had two occasions where I have connected.

Is there something I have missed in the setup?

Anyone have issues with the accuracy? I was just testing standing still and it had me going 50 yards in about a minute.

If you are indoor or surrounded with buildings or trees this can happen, otherwise in my case the accuracy is +/- 2 yards.

SportyPal for Blackberry v1.2 released

A new update of SportyPal for BlackBerry (version 1.2) is now available.

Changes in this version:
- Added all the new workout types as they appear on the website, accessible from the FreeStyle type.
- Added support for all screen resolutions.
- Added support for phones with touchscreen, which should include Blackberry Storm 9530
- Added support for automatic screen rotation where available
- Uses new upload and register API that should fix most workout upload and registering issues,
- Upload should now work correctly via mobile network on devices that have no WiFi,
- SportyPal will attempt to get a GPS fix forever or until you choose back from the menu (or press on Back on devices with a touch screen)
- SportyPal will now tell you if a new version is available when you upload a workout,
- Faster “current workout” screen redrawing especially the transition to the map view.
- Switch between speed and pace (using the Up/Down navigation keys or by touch-scrolling up and down) for your current workout.
