[App Roundup] Our Top Seven Picks For The Best New Apps Of May 2015

There's no nice way to say this: May kind of sucked for new apps. There were a lot of notable updates to major existing apps (including a slew of Material Design updates), but the biggest news of the month came from Microsoft, of all places. Oh well - a short field just means it's that much easier to pick your bets. Here in no particular order are our top picks for the month of May, and a few runners up.

Runtastic 5.9.2 Adds Always-On Mode For Android Wear

And now, we interrupt our Google I/O coverage to bring you this health bulletin.

Runtastic is one of the few apps that are commendable for quickly - really quickly - adapting to any new Android releases, options, or APIs. Today, the app is keeping its track record of jumping head-first into new features by adding an always-on mode for Android Wear watches.

You don't need to do anything for the function to work - that is if your Wear watch is already on Android 5.1.1, which enables always-on mode for apps. When you start a new Runtastic activity, the card will show up on your watch.

Runtastic Leg Workout Trainer Is Here To Help You Get Those Toned Calves And Quads

Runtastic knows that you'll be sitting on your ass for hours during Google I/O, watching the conference and gorging on all the news, so it decided to release a new app to... taunt you? Or motivate you to get back in shape once I/O is over? Whatever the purpose, Leg Workout Trainer is now available on the Play Store.

Leg Workout Trainer joins the previously released Butt Trainer in bringing a series of muscle-focused (or group of muscles-focused) exercises to your phone in video form, with step-by-step instructions and photos.

Runtastic Running And Fitness App Gets The Material Design Treatment In Version 5.4

I'm not much of a runner, but I've occasionally made use of the Runtastic Running and Fitness app to keep track of my time and distance while jogging around the neighborhood. Given that it's the middle of winter in the US, I won't be firing up the app anytime soon. But the more dedicated among you may be happy to know that the latest update (version 5.4) has made the few visual adjustments needed to better fit in on Lollipop devices.

Runtastic Wants To Whip That Ass Into Shape With Its Newest App, Butt Trainer

Runtastic has all sorts of apps (many of which have absolutely nothing to do with running) – everything from cycling, to heart rate monitoring, to abs, and so much more. Its newest app, however, really wants to help users get their ass in shape... literally. It's called Butt Trainer, and well, the name speaks for itself. (For the record, I suggested "RuntASStic," but they didn't go for it.)

Nike+ Running Steps Up, Gets Updated With Google Fit Integration

After both Runtastic and RunKeeper got updated with Google Fit integration in the past couple of weeks, it's Nike+' turn today. As one of Fit's initial launch partners, this update was expected and should come as a surprise to no one. All you have to do is launch the app once it's updated and follow the prompts to give it access to post its data to your Google Fit account. If you don't want to enable this feature, you can simply dismiss the prompt or later disable it under the app's settings.

If you're like most adults, then you probably don't get enough sleep. With the constant state of gogogo on everyone's mind these days, we're all so busy that it takes time from nature's way of replenishing the body, which is why it's so important to get quality sleep when we do lay down at night. Runtastic has a new app that aims to help users keep track of their sleeping patterns, appropriately called Sleep Better.

Runtastic Gets Updated With Fit Integration, Will Synchronize Your Activity's Stats With Google's Platform

My love for Runtastic grows by the day. Not only is the service very useful to track my runs and hikes, but its Android app is almost always on the forefront of the latest Google and Android features and guidelines. Case in point: it was one of the first fitness apps to add support for Android Wear and it just got updated with Google Fit integration.

The first time you launch the app you'll be asked to give it access to your Google account (or you can find the option under Settings, Partner Accounts) so it can view and store activity information, location data, and body sensor data (presumably heart rate stats).

Runtastic Speed & Cadence Sensor And Heart Rate Monitor Review: Two Useful Tools To Transform Your Phone Into A Full-Fledged Cyclometer

There's no shortage of ways to track your data while working out, especially when it comes to things like running and cycling. There's Runkeeper, Map My Ride/Run, Endomondo, Strava, and many others. Which one you choose really comes down to personal preference, but each has its own set of benefits and features that may make it a better fit into your life. Personally, I've been using Runtastic since I reviewed the Orbit a couple of months ago, and settled in with the company's dedicated road cycling app after getting the Runtastic-branded Speed & Cadence Sensor and Heart Rate Monitor.
