Track Your Movement on WP7

Some of you may remember (and currently use) ‘Marathon’, a Windows Mobile application developed by XDA forum member Ooije.  The app was released in 2009 and tracks your movement with the help of a GPS-receiver.

Useful for activities such as running and cycling, Marathon is configurable to announce various statistics in the headset or speaker.  The app records and displays data such as time, distance, speed and altitude as bar or line charts and is also compatible with an online service.

With the imminent release of WP7, Ooije is in the process of porting his app over to WP7 and appears to have made good progress so far. The dev is interested in any feedback regarding the UI and usability of the application (insofar as much as the youtube video shows).

For more information and to check out the video of the WP7 port so far, take a look at the application thread.

Hisilicon's processor department may not be the most popular in the west but their technology is impressive, with year on year improvements being easily seen. In the coming years, manufacturers such as Qualcomm may have to face the fact that there are other companies just as able...
