    Can anyone recommend an app that *works* on the Nexus 4 to track my activity?
    I want it to track my runs & cycles by GPS as well as letting me add manual entries from treadmill etc

    Runkeeper is ideal, but they haven't updated the app since 4.2.1 came out and it force closes whenever I start anything with GPS
    CardioTrainer is no longer developed as they are concentrating on the bloated Noom app
    Google My Tracks works but doesn't record start times and is very basic

    Can anyone recommend anything that works well on the Nexus 4?
    I have my Pebble watch coming soon so really wanted to keep using Runkeeper but they've been ignoring my support tickets since the N4 was released (RunKeeper is a partner with Pebble so we know it's going to be supported, just a shame the phone isn't!)

    I don't know if it works with the latest jellybean but I love Endomondo Pro. GPS tracking and overlays onto a map, uploads to their website with more information, compatible with heart rate monitors, many activities to choose from and selectable information for on screen display.

    There is a free version too to try out, it's only missing a few features from pro.

    I use JogTracker and it tracks runs/walks and cycling via GPS. I think you can manually upload stuff. but not totally sure.

    I use Endomondo Pro too. When I start running again I'm tempted to give the Nike+ Running app a try. It's free so maybe give that a go first?

    EDIT: Skipped over the manual entries. Endomondo is probably your best bet. There's also Runtastic but I've never tried it.

    Search play store for the three "mapmyfitness" apps. I used MapMyWalk on an earlier device with great success.

    Check out Strava as well. I have a garmin watch and used the garmin connect site for a long time (its free for garmin wearers) but Strava has won me over.

    There's an android app that uses your gps, like the others, etc...

    I use Strava on my Nexus 4 every time I ride. It works very well. They have done a lot of great work on their app.

    For biking I use MapMyRide which is a great app and Nike+ for running since I have watch but you can't add in runs from a treadmill :-( I would recommend Endomondo if you need to add runs from a treadmill.

    i went through a bunch of them a while back. Settled on Endomondo Pro. The last few weeks I ran into some "GPS lost" problems, but other than that it's been great.

    Thanks for this. Tried the app on today's run. Worked perfectly. Even showed on the map it created how I cheated going through one of my cul-de-sacs.

    Another vote for Endomondo. Its got some cool social features too if you have other friends using the app. And one other feature that often gets overlooked is it keeps track of what your are listening too during the workout. So, i'll start Google Music...make a radio station...go run....and when I hear a cool song that I liked I can go to my saved workout and it will tell me what I was listening to at that point on my run. Pretty cool! Iphone users don't get this feature because Apple locks down the ability to access the media player. TOOOOOO BAD!
