I've been using Google Authenticator the day my Gmail account got hacked by someone in Bosnia last year. Literally the best way to keep your Gmail account secure.

Because it's the first time an e-mail account has ever been hacked...
What a lame attempt at trolling

Authenticator is cool for keeping your google account secure, and it's also available for those who choose to have an iPhone.

Its basically the same as the cardiotrainer app. They just explained it poorly.
If you like health and fitness, it's a great app. Also if you go hiking, especially if you are going alone, you should be trackable.
If you fall down a ditch or hurt yourself, you will wish someone could find or ping you.

Ive been using Google My Tracks for a few years now and it's awesome. When I go on ATV rides in the mountains, I put my phone into Airplane Mode and turn on GPS. No cell signal needed. You can overlay it onto Google Map. Great app.

My tracks is awesome! My wife and I use it every weekend to record our long walks. It gives you time speed, total moving time (if you stopped) and you can replay it in google earth if you want to see something you passed along your walk (run, jog whatever).

I ride a bike everywhere, and My Tracks is fun for those longer trips. Scary accurate too.

Google Goggles. Such a smart app which has not been updated for these many years. So sad.

It has been integrated in google now in the form of a smart camera.
At first I was confused regarding that app too, but I found out some time ago within google now about the goggles. It's a bit hard to find and remember btw, but you will find it there itself.
