Fast Company has named Strava as one of "The World’s Top 10 Most Innovative Companies in Fitness", and there are many reasons for that. First and foremost, it's worth noting that their social running and cycling app is absolutely great. And Strava's iOS app recently received an update, bringing its version number to 4.0.

In Strava Running and Cycling 4.0, you'll find a brand-new "Activity Feed" that highlights even more of your friends' activities, with notable inclusions being their Instagram feed(?) and their route map. The updated feed also makes it much easier to give comments and kudos to fellow fitness aficionados. Also included in the update is the ability to share photos on your Strava profile via Instagram, real-time segments with live updates, and a variety of new languages including Dutch, Japanese, Korean, and more.

You can get the Strava Running and Cycling - GPS Run and Ride Tracker on the App Store for free.

Posted by Jennifer Allen on April 27th, 2011

Did you know that May is National Bike Month in the USA? If the weather's anything like it is here in the UK, it's perfect biking weather too.

But how do you track your cycling workout? Use iMapMyRIDE of course! The app uses your iPhone's GPS to track your average pace and speed in order to log and analyze how you're doing. Plus there's an interactive map feature so you can keep track of your routes as well as your friends.

It's easy to set up and use with a couple of simple taps stopping and starting the timer, plus it automatically uploads the data to your iMapMyRIDE account. As is increasingly customary with such apps, you can also set it to automatically let people know via Twitter and Facebook how you're doing.

The standard iMapMyRIDE is a free download that's ad supported or you can download the $4.99 version and have the added benefit of iPod integration, geo tagging photo functionality and no more ads.

And don't forget to cycle plenty in May! Apps like this are sure to motivate you.
