iSkate app review: GPS for skaters

Reviews

Introduction

All you inline and roller skating enthusiasts will definitely want to check out the excellent iSkate - GPS skating computer for inline and roller skates for iPhone and iPad as it provides some great unique features to help you track your skating sessions and monitor your progress over time.

After seeing so many countless tracking apps aimed at runners and cyclists it’s really quite refreshing to use one that is designed for inline skaters, and although the genre is fairly sparse this certainly hasn’t stopped the developer from making an extra special effort in terms of the quality being offered.

With this app you’ll be able to record data such as your session duration, current and average speeds, distance, altitude, calories burned, and loads more, plus you can use your device’s integrated GPS to plot routes and see them displayed on a map.
