Used to love it, it’s useless now 1/5
I used to love this app because of its great features and free training plans. Well the app must have updated in the middle of my free marathon training program and I didn’t notice until today because I am done with the marathon and just tried to do a training program for my half marathon and it keeps telling me I have to pay for Runkeeper Go to pick a plan or make my own custom plan. Pure crap! Gotta go find a new app now and it’s a shame because I have loved this one for like 10 years.... bye runkeeper
Very useful 5/5
By H Eric
I’ve used this app for some years. It tracks my hikes and gives me a record of where I’ve been. I highly recommend it.
Now my fave...except social media 3/5
[Another issue: things seem to be getting smaller and smaller. It is sometimes difficult to use some settings without my glasses on. I know most people probably have good vision, but I did not have this problem so much with the older versions][The social media features of the app have gone downhill over the last year. Instead of sharing at the touch of a button it hands off to iOS sharing thing and that is just clunky and slow. The old way was better. Why break something that worked well?][another update. Kind of getting used to new voice. Main thing I miss is sharing maps to Facebook. Now when I share from app only shares image without linking to details. If I share from the web site, it links to run, but no longer shows map, only running dude icon. This is step backwards. As someone with friends on social media, this is a bit annoying for something that previously worked so well][Latest update gets rid of the default voice, Kat, yet keeps the same name. The new voice is harsh and distracting. This is particularly irksome since the last few versions they have added voices that are equally annoying and unhelpful. Why fix something that wasn't broken?] Crashes in previous versions have gone away. This is now hands down my favorite running app. My only criticism is that the price for the full version is about twice what feels right. I wait for sales, but I should not have to do that to feel light I am not getting ripped off. The added features simply aren't that great. [Update: last few things seem to be adding features that aren't needed. Lots of cosmetic changes that really don't improve the app. Music feature is more a headache than a asset.][Another update: The last few versions have a problem where the app's voice speaks lowers the volume of your music at the end of your run then doesn't raise it back up when it's done speaking as it does during the run. As a result, you have to shut down the Runkeeper app to get your music to play back at the normal volume.]
Long time friend 5/5
By Sr x 247
I’m an early adopter of Runkeeper. It’s never let me down...always improving!
OK for GymWork 4/5
Needs better “In-The-Gym” functionality on treadmill, stair master, elliptical machines.
Love This App 5/5
By Audie Dad
Have been using this app for five years. I love how it rates my runs so I can compare where I am at physically. Very accurate and easy to use.
Great app, interface needs simplification 4/5
Runkeeper has always been a great app. The latest version’s interface could use some simplification though. It takes a few clicks to do something as simple as changing run distance, and features like shoe tracking are difficult to find.
Very nice App 5/5
I use for cycling. I control my ridings and evaluate my history!
Apple Watch 閃退 1/5
Problems with Pandora 2/5
I used this app a lot while running. I would combine it with Pandora and be able to track my run while listening to music, but with the latest version it crashes 50% of the time causing me to loose track of my pace and mileage. Please fix this!
Perfect for tracking Running (and more) 5/5
By Eric Dorsey
Update 12/9/17: Still my go to app for my daily run. Solid at keeping great data. Recent updates show activity even cleaner, and fonts are bigger / easier to read (like when your phone is in your armband). Consistently awesome.
I love this app and use it almost every day. GPS tracking for outside running (or walking, biking, etc) and manual entry for when you have to run inside on treadmill. Quality interface. Shows weekly stats. Lets you set goals (run x miles by y date, etc). Just get it.
Inept Apple Watch integration 1/5
By THE Aaron Tobiason
8.5.1: according to the app, I start nearly every run with a quarter mile sprint to the west, racing through houses and over fences. Laughable.
4/9/17 update: recent period of functionality once again fixed. Constantly ignores any pausing/stopping from the watch.
7/13/16 update: Progress. Now 100% of runs on Watch don't register. Well done, gentlemen. Once again making me happy I'm not paying for this app.
Half of runs don't appear on the app (left open the entire time). Frequently starts a new one when pausing, deleting the entire activity. Frustrating.
Buggy and loses data 1/5
By too buggy.. loses data
Loses data from Apple Watch ... health app doesn’t. Useless to track runs when data gets lost.
This is the best app! So busy, more later! Can’t rave about this enough!
Great motivator 5/5
By A big NPR fan
I’ve been using the free version of Runkeeper to keep my running on track for years now. It’s easy to use. I like the fact that the alerts can be customized so that I can get pacing or distance notifications during my run if that’s something I happen to be focusing on, or I can turn them off when I just want to zone out and listen to a book or podcast without interruption.
Love it 5/5
Could not have gotten into running without it.
Good app for my simple needs 4/5
It does the basics of tracking miles and pace. I like that it has different categories of activities and I can view a quick stacked graph over time. I only have the free version. I wish that it would sort activities to the top of the list based on past usage.
Terrible with the Apple Watch 1/5
I’ve been a very happy Runkeeper user since 2012, and I’ve paid for Runkeeper Go since 2015. And for most of that time, I’ve loved the app. However, I have had a pretty consistently terrible experience since I got an Apple Watch, and I don’t even think all of my problems lately are related to the Apple Watch. I’ve given Runkeeper the benefit of the doubt, talked extensively with Runkeeper support, and assumed the issues would be resolved soon. But my experience training and running the NYC marathon has lead me to the point where I can’t keep using this app.
Throughout training, I would have the problem where after everything was working great for the first 7-10 miles, I’d look at my Apple watch and notice that runkeeper was no longer running. If I launched it on my watch, it would reset me to zero miles. Another time, I’d be a few miles in, I’d all of a sudden hear “activity started” and realize I was back at zero. Uggghhhh. I also had all of these problems during the actual marathon, regardless of whether I started the activity on my phone or watch, and In the end, I was forced to run without any pace tracking at all.
Best I’ve tried 5/5
Recent loss of data for Apple Watch 2/5
12/5/2017: revising my rating down. Splits are no longer accurate. The run tracking has stopped working in the middle of a run a few times. Seems to get worse instead of better with updates.
I run with Apple Watch only and it seems to need to be restarted on the iPhone a few times to get it to sync correctly.
Prior feedback: Great app for I phone and Apple Watch. I would like the Watch version to integrate verbal feedback though. Maybe in future updates.
Inaccurate distance 3/5
By Hans Halberstadt
This app frequently stops Recording distance and mileage does not match distances recorded by other applications.
Excellent app does what it needs to do 5/5
in a very simple straightforward way.
Fun fun! 5/5
By tronpito y gallito
Love the jokes in middle of run.
As the app says,
“But really it’s, not the app, but, the actual running.
Running created the app. 🤣😂
But seriously 😒
Better than most 4/5
By Colombian Chula
I recently switched over from another running app and I am very pleased. I only use the free version but I really like how it gives you your average and current pace. I also enjoy the reminders and that you can choose how often you hear them. The only thing I really miss from my previous running app was the metronome to help me keep my pace on a long run. It would also be cool if you could set automatic timers for jog/sprint intervals. I currently use another app for that and running two apps at the same time while also using Spotify really eats up my battery on distance workouts.
I love Runkeeper! It is awesome!
Continuous improvement 5/5
Continuously making changes to make the app my preferred choice for tracking my runs...
No more basic training plans 2/5
Very disappointing. No help for people even considering running. I have used this app for years, have logged almost 2500 miles. Went to start another training plan to get ready for a half marathon and they are gone. I get that we all have to make a living, but you are also advertiser-supported. You are not even providing plans for newbies? Disappointing to say the least...
Good luck selecting music 1/5
You used to be able to select a playlist in your iTunes Music Library on your iPhone; no longer, the “Playlist” selections now are now only None or All Music. Worthless. And you can’t select your own playlist in Spotify, you can only select ones Spotify provides. Thanks, Runkeeper! (sarc)
Fantástico, o melhor! 5/5
Muito bom para práticas de caminhada do dia a dia. Não é preciso ser um atleta para fazer exercícios/caminhadas diárias.
Me ajuda muito a acumular uns pontos e perder umas kcal.
Great app 5/5
I just use it to track my distance and time and path for my nightly walks. Sooo much better than a pedometers Ha!
Free version is great 5/5
We love the free version to track our hikes. Particularly enjoy the ability to associate photos with each hike. Makes it feel like a scrap book for our family adventures.
Good but updates continue to be glitchy 3/5
Great app and I use it daily but with each update my music selection gets screwed. I won’t remember the playlist I’ve selected. It just plays the last music I was listening to outside the app. I want my run playlist to always play for running. I hate getting started and having to pause and reselect my playlist.
Poor performance with Apple Watch 1/5
Crashes all the time - hangs during every single run and fails to save long runs. If no update done soon, will switch to other app.
Disappointed with recent problems 2/5
I’ve loved runkeeper for years and I am so sad that it has been so glitchy. The app is beautiful and I enjoy the functionality- when it works. It never syncs with my Apple Watch properly, distances are always off, random auto pauses, etc. My whole running group is switching apps because of this problem. I hate to switch and lose data, but these problems have been going on for quite some time.
Hasn’t worked since iOS 11 came out 1/5
By BoSox Barley
The app no longer connects to the phone when used on the watch. Useless. And I have the premium version. Wasted money.
Until they fix this issue I would highly recommend any other run tracking app.
I wish I could give zero stars.
Very inconsistent. Tracks via GPS one day then nothing in the next. Ed your run. Glad I’m using the FREE version. You never know what’s going to be stored til you have completEvery update it gets worse. Looks like I’ll be switching after many years of using this app. Get your APP together. Adding to review, EPIC fail once again for a RACE!!!!Dumping this app!!!!
Accurate jog recording for iPhone 5/5
I have the free version which is perfect for me. I just use it when I jog or run . I like that it gives me my time and speed during my workout. It also has a pause button which can be handy in case your interrupted by something. The free version also keeps your records of past workout. For being free u can’t bet that. I don’t use this to count daily steps u will need a Fitbit or Apple Watch for that.
Apple Watch Times not synced 3/5
I love the fact that I can use it with my Apple Watch without having to carry my phone. I just don’t like that the times and details don’t sync with the app on my phone. Been using it this week and still says I haven’t done any type of exercise.
Great app for losing weight 5/5
Counts steps and pace for walking and running. Challenges keep things fresh and give great discounts for running gear
My personal best exercising friend 5/5
The best app I have ever used for tracking exercises, runs, anything sporty. I love it!
They sell your personal information 1/5
They sell my personal information to advertisers, and I can’t figure out how to delete the account.
The tracker I always come to. I love this spp 5/5
I try new ones occasionally but always come back to RunKeeper.. easy interface, links to my other apps, easy to log or use in live mode... love it... just love it!
Left for one month as the cycling group I joined used another program... I am back... this has a much nicer interface, with stats I actually use, and also loads weather data... missed being able to easily take photos in the app... will never leave again!
Love the workout feature 4/5
Love the workout feature so I can create my own interval workouts. :)
My son recommended this and I’ve been using it for years. It’s great!
Great app for casual runner keeping in shape 2/5
I only run a couple of times week to try to stay in shape, and use the free version. I’ve used it for years I’ve never seen a reason to change. I’m sure there are little things that they can improve, but updates seem to get better every time.
I kind of feel like I should upgrade but for my purposes I’m not sure what I would get. I think I’m just lazy in exploring.
But there are plenty of apps that I’ve downloaded and lost interest in. This is certainly not one of them.
Just not trustworthy 1/5
I have been using this app for multiple years, pay for the subscription portion, and have become disgusted with it recently for lack of reliability.
In the last two weeks, out of 7 runs, 3 have failed to track correctly. On two occasions, the app was started but did not begin to track mileage, but did track time. One these times, the mileage began tracking after 2.5 or 3 miles. On the other occasion, the app decide to end the run in the middle, so that the only option was to save that portion and start a new record.
Historically these events seem to be occur more often than in the past.
I am using this app on a iPhone X and Apple watch series 2, both fully updated at time of use.
In depth review 2/5
By yellow tree
I used to use this awesome app running with my phone. They had several free plans which were awesome. You’d start an 8-week plan & you would get audio coaching throughout the run. Plus, gps real time pace information. I really loved this app. Fast forward a year later & now all the training plans are subscription only. I recently got an iWatch & saw they had an app, so I splurged anyway, because I loved it. The watch app is so bad! There is no audio prompts & the pace data is nonexistent. So it’s useless without my phone. So sad. If you run with your phone & pay for the plans on offer, it’s great, but horrible for iWatch runners. Hopefully, it will get better in the future, until then, I got my money back.
Glitchy - Stops tracking my walk within the first .2 mile 3/5
For the few months, Runkeeper has been driving me crazy because it keeps turning off on its own. It used to be that I could start tracking my walk with my Apple Series 2 watch and off I would go with both my watch and phone tracking my synchronized walk. Now I never know if the watch will stop tracking, if the phone will stop tracking or if the phone will track and I can’t get the watch out of the Go/Start mode. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app on my phone and my watch numerous times. The only reason I still use the app is that I receive Health points through my employer for tracking my walks. Frustrated beyond belief.
Ella from Texas 5/5
By Ella from Texas
I use the free version and rated it a 5. It’s my favorite because it is easy and the GPS is exact.
