For me, eliminating vertical videos is a moral imperative. Horizon automatically rotates the video frame to landscape regardless of phone orientation. Limited free version, $1 for the full version. This sometimes eliminates your ability to shoot 4K video, but in my G4 1920x1080 is no problem. If you really want 4K, use the regular cam app.

This should be a default in all cam apps.

hmm that's more of  step counter...

 

I've tried runtastic, runkeeper, mapmyrun... what I hate is having to log in to be able to use the apps... (on a very limited data connection)

IMO you won't get an app that doesn't need a decent data connection to track well enough, you need a purpose built device. 

Something with built in GPS like Fitbit Surge, Garmin Vivoactive etc but expect to pay for it.

You shouldn't use Task Killer. You should use Greenify instead. :)

Both are a huge waste of resources and useless, let Android do what it does which will always be better than these apps

Runtastic has used 12Mb for me since the 15th. running around 2.5 hours every day. I could disable it's mobile data and it would still track just as well though.

I'm just responding to the below, if data use is a concern then buy a device that does the tracking for you rather than rely on a smartphone's data connection.

But GPS tracking on the phone doesn't require a data connection though. downloading the map if you dont have a cached map or are actively viewing the map does. but the GPS trackign itself, even on AGPS doesn't use any data. hence why it still works after you turn off the apps background data usage so it can't use mobile data . heck I only have mobile data on for runtastic so I can sync my walks right after I'm done and not wait till I get home.

Why? If you want a fast Android experience, as Google intended it to be, then root your phone, get rid of the horrid carrier Android version and install a custom ROM like most of us do. I personally got rid of my LG G2 AT&T Android version and installed Cyanogenmod 12.1, which is based on Android 5.1.1, and now my phone runs like a charm. No issues whatsoever. None.
