Google releases My Tracks Android App for tracking your training routes

My Tracks Android AppOn the heels of the Google Latitude release, the search giant released a new location-aware application for its Android platform called My Tracks to allow users to record their routes when cycling, running, hiking, or doing pretty much any outdoor activity.

The application also integrates with other Android apps to make it easy to share routes with your friends via GMail app or some other application that can send messages like Twidroid, for instance. Yap, that means you can Twitter your workouts if you want.

In a nutshell, with My Tracks, Google is joining the “active mobile lifestyle” trend, where we also have other apps/services available like the Nokia Sports Tracker and Wayfinder Active To Go.

Enough said. Dylan Casey, a former professional cyclist and now a Google employee, is there to show you how the application works. His video follows after the jump.
