Cycling app for iPhone 4?

So I have an iPhone 4 running Apple's latest OS (7.1.1) and I deeply regret ever upgrading (or downgrading in a sense) it. Every app is sluggish and battery life is horrid. Before iOS 7 was released, I had it good. Battery would last well through the day and sometimes even through the next day. I used the PanoBike app from Topeak because of its ease of use and stability. However, many apps are becoming increasingly unstable as they are optimized for later phones (and thus with better processors) and it's hard to find a good app for cycling these days. I've used the Strava app, and although I like the look and 'feel' of it, it's a huge battery killer. The PanoBike app is better, but still crashes from time to time. Does anyone have ANY suggestions for iOS apps that will run smoothly on an older system? Outside of getting a new phone, that is.

Any help is appreciated greatly,

Try Endomondo. They have a free version. Been using it (Android version) for nearly two years now.
