Red Diary is the ultimate trip diary, keeping log of your walks, runs and rides, including details as distance, top speed, time, route map, elevation changes, photos and notes taken.


* Privacy first: Trips are kept locally on the phone and synchronised using iCloud

* Automatic trip start: Start trips automatically when the presence of a well-known device is detected, for example a Bluetooth helmet or a CarKit audio connection

* Idle detection: Trips are automatically stopped and saved after a period of inactivity

* Voice announcements: The app announces ride time, distance and top speed changes, even when it is running in the background. Ideal for exercising with the headphones on!

* Take photos during the trip or add photos later

* Take notes during the trip or add notes later

* Trip maps with photos and notes, elevation maps and detailed trip statistics

* Share trips via social media, chat, email etc.

* Independent watch app: The Red Diary watch app can be used without the phone. Trips are recorded on the watch -- you can even leave the phone behind! The recorded trips will be synchronised when your watch and phone meet again.

* Widgets for the Home Screen


* Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life

* Apple Health integration: When enabled, Red Diary automatically saves trips representing physical activities to Apple Health
