November 30, 2010; review of TrailRunner and RaceBunny at WarriorWomen.co.uk: I think I’ve arrived late to the party but I’ve just stumbled upon a brilliant piece of software that can actually give Sporttracks a run for it’s money. Article Link
TrailRunner has been granted the "Excellent" certificate at FindMySoft.com
What's more interesting is the fact that softpedia published some screenshots of TrailRunner depicting a map snapshot of a region in Romania near the river Prut. Looks like globalization also caught the software review industry…

My first competition this year will be Sunday, March 21st for "Auf die Platte-fertig-los", Wiesbaden, Germany.
As every year this is the first of a series of up-hill races I do. Roughly 8 km with 450 m of ascent.
I wish all of you a successful season!

As one might expect, the TrailRunner community is very international. Thanks to google, I can present you a Geo Map Overlay for TrailRunners, a graphical representation of the volume of visitors coming from locations around the world. The darkest spots indicate locations driving the most visitors to the TrailRunner website.
Interestingly most of my visitors come from Europe, but why is that so? Americans, put your shoes on…!
If you're not keen on the web-based route, the Mac-only TrailRunner is an incredible desktop application that tackles many of the same features with a quick and very attractive interface. TrailRunner even integrates with Nike+ iPod, Google Earth, and your GPS (though MapMyRun does GPS, too).

„TrailRunner liefert nicht nur einen virtuellen Trainingspartner, sondern macht auch als GPS-Track-Editor für Amateur-Kartographen eine gute Figur“.
I liked that they wrote me in advance to cross read the article and gave me a chance to make remarks. They even did send me a copy of the issue for my records.
The issue will be out by Monday, January 19th.
And here’s the outcome, a 0,79 Euro App in the AppStore:
Put your iPhone or iPod touch on a table or desk. Gather the participants around your precious and have them select a playing field by placing a finger on the screen. (Explain to them this is the only circumstance under which you’ll let their greedy paws touch it!) Once everyone lifts their finger, the spinner will start.
Now here’s the twist: While the spinner will eventually decelerate and randomly point out a winner (or loser!) you can influence fate by slamming on the table. When you do so, the spin-down will start and select the loser not so randomly...
“Slam it!” can be played in two game modes (Protect Yourself and Last Player Wins) and comes with three themes to choose from.
