Endomondo, an extremely popular sports and exercise tracker got an update to version 8 today, bringing a handful of minor enhancements. Among these are improvements to routes, the option to like/dislike routes, and the addition and removal of favorite roots. More importantly though, version 8 brings a brand new UI, designed with Ice Cream Sandwich's legendary style guide in mind. Check out some screenshots:

What's great about Endomondo's new UI is not only that it enhances the UX greatly and makes the app as a whole "prettier," but that it brings the app's design more into line with the Ice Cream Sandwich style guide, without making the mistake of following the idea that holo is everything.

The new design implements the all-important action bar, it has swipe-able tab-based pagination, clean, flat iconography (with abundant unique, non-native icons), a unique, consistent color scheme, and of course Roboto. In summary, the app looks great.

Whether you're already a fan of Endomondo or just want to try out one of the best exercise/sports apps available that's now even better, hit the widget below and grab version 8.

    I bought this when it was on sale for a dime. Seems like a good time to reinstall it and give it another whirl.

    Love Endomondo, and this redesign looks great!

    Minor typo though, at the end of the second sentence: "and the addition and removal of favorite roots." should be "favorite routes". :)

    "and the addition and removal of favorite roots" You mean I can add/remove ginger, carrots, potatoes, yams and the like? Awesome! :P

    Haha but seriously, this is awesome. Just used it today (before I knew of the update) on a 20 mile bike ride.
