This question might look a bit odd: I'm desperately trying to find a sports tracker app that won't share my activities with half of the world.

I know, that in most applications sharing can be switched off completely. Also, there are many apps out there that promise they share information only with my explicit permission.

However, I'd like to have a stronger guarantee than a correct privacy policy. If an app asks me to create an account or log in with an existing (Google+ or Facebook) one, I do not consider that app an option.

So, shortly: does such a GPS sports tracker app exist that writes GPS data only and exclusively into my phone's memory?

Of course, I'd happily pay the price, so that app doesn't need to be free.

(Interesting fact: for Blackberry, the CascaRun app does exactly that. It can share, but does not require you to log in or create an account.)

Had to delete my answer, appears you can no longer use Endomondo without syncing it with an account... – James Mar 25 '14 at 13:44

I use Sportstracklive( ). I've just started using it. I wanted something that would basically let me do what I do with my Garmin 305, but in situations where I would be away from a pc and the tracks woould be too long and exceed the Garmin memory. For example a weeks backcountry ski trip. My phone will store all that data, I can charge it through an adapter from AA batteries.

Then when I get back, I upload to the website, download gpx tracks to import to my pc (I use SportsTracks), then delete from the website. In addition to the privacy options, there is no data to be shared. It's a compromise I can live with.
