Strava announce new social, analysis features for mobile

Strava Photos, Recent Efforts and improved leaderboards among new additions to GPS cycling app

Strava GPS cycling and running app

Strava have added a series of new features for their GPS cycling and running app including Strava Photos, My Recent Efforts and improved leaderboards.

The new features have been created in an attempt to enhance social experience, performance analysis and interface design.

‘Strava Photos’ represents one of the biggest changes and allows users to attach photos to their activities from either their mobile camera or photo album.

Instagram accounts can also be linked to recorded activities so that users can share their experiences visually with as many photos as they want.

Expanding on the recently launched Matched Runs, Strava have added My Recent Efforts to enable athletes to use their mobile devices when comparing past segment performances.

Through the introduction of My Recent Efforts, Strava hope it will be easier for athletes to track improvement and find motivation to train.

With the improved and redesigned leaderboards, athletes have easier access to their rankings among clubs, athletes they follow and the whole Strava community, say its makers.

Strava is available to download for free on iOS and Android and more information can be found here. And remember to check out our guide to four of the best training apps currently on the market.
