Exclusive to Nokia Lumias running Windows Phone 8, the Active Fitness app turns working out into a competitive sport by making it easy to track your fitness and health activities and share them with friends, family and new acquaintances on a social network of more than 50,000 global users. With NFC, the app supports Tap-to-Friend, so you can also extend your network of competitors by tapping two Windows Phones together.
To help you get a leg up on the leaderboards, the app gives you professionally designed training plans that will help improve your performance in hundreds of activities, including running, walking, cycling, skiing, skateboarding and kayaking.
It works offline, too, so when you’re out and about playing your favorite sports, you’re still covered. And another cool feature: it has speech and voice support, so you don’t have to stop and type to track your runs.
Install it from the Windows Phone Store and join an ongoing fitness competition that spans the world.
