Garmin App Came Out Today – I’m Underwhelmed

Today, Garmin’s official iPhone app came out. It’s supposed to be used in conjunction with their new bike devices, but it works great on its own…if you believe what it does is great. However, from my point of view it is poop (that’s an IT term for underwhelming) compared to the unofficial iPhone app I reviewed yesterday (Goals Part 2 – and a Super App). That app is well worth the $0.99 investment, compared to Garmin’s free product.

Better reporting, better graphs, better mapping choices, just better all around. Garmin appears to spent the minimal amount of design effort, and time, to get an app out the door. But for 99 cents, download both and see for yourself. Then let me know which one you like, but commenting on this post.
