Strava has updated its app with three new features designed exclusively for mobile devices. Here are details of each one in turn.
• Strava Photos Strava members have already shared millions of photos by linking their Instagram accounts to recorded activities, but you can now attach as many photos as you like to your activities directly from your mobile camera app or photo album.
• My Recent Efforts This allows you to analyse and compare your past segment performances directly from a mobile device.
• Improved leaderboards Redesigned mobile leaderboards now give you easier access to segment rankings among the athletes you follow, your Clubs and the entire Strava community. If you’re a Strava Premium member you can now also access personalised leaderboards from your mobile devices, allowing quick comparisons to other Strava athletes of the same weight or age.
The updated app (version 4.4) is available for download now.
Premium athletes have access to all the new features and leaderboards for £3.99 per month or £39.99 per year.
