It’s now Facebook 1/5
Strava used to be great, and I’ve been a user for 6 years. Unfortunately, it has become Facebook-lite with the latest update. If they don’t return Strava to a more training-focused platform, I will be moving back to TrainingPeaks and canceling my premium subscription
With new update only one club can be seen from the Feed page. I belong to several it would be nice to be able to switch between them.
Great App 5/5
This app is great for both running and cycling. It does everything it says it does and I find it easy to use. I specifically like the segments feature and the ability to run in "virtual" 10ks and such.
I’ve found a few bugs though. For one, if I record an activity in Strava, and record my heart rate, it shows correctly within Strava, but doesn’t share my heart rate info back to the Health app. Because of this, other apps, such as Cardiogram, cannot see my HR. However, they can see that I’ve done an activity, hit my “move” and “exercise” goal, and overall did something. It’s like Strava holds my HR info hostage and doesn’t share. I’ve checked my settings and it is set to share with the Health app.
Great app but the new updates aren't wanted 3/5
Strava athletes aren't asking for the app to become more like a social media platform. The change from chronological posts to "most interesting" wasn't wanted, and now we have an unwanted update that makes things as posts. It's fine if you want to roll out new features, but don't force them on users when we didn't ask for them and don't want them
Not what it used to be.. Great app gone facebook. 1/5
The chronological feed is gone without an option to get it back. Sad to see Strava making such poor decisions. Premium membership has been cancelled, as promised.
I really miss the old Strava.
Why would you do that 1/5
What is wrong with you. Why would you change something that works.
Let me make this simple. Go back to chronological order.
No one like this. No one likes algorithms that try to guess what I want to see first. I know what I want and it’s to see things in the order they happened.
Here’s an idea, why don’t you send out a survey and ask people if they like it or not. No one does. We don’t like it in Instagram. We don’t like in Facebook.
Oh I know.... make it a premium feature we have to pay for...... just kidding. Do that and it would be the death of the app.
Bring back chronological order 1/5
By Random life
The app lost its meaning without it
Watch all Went from Hero to Zero. 1/5
I’ve been using Strava for well over 3 years now, and it had been a great app all these years. Unfortunately though, its “features” for the Series 2/3 watches is have made the app entirely useless. The Watch and Phone apps can no longer sync during an activity if you’re using a Series 2/3 Watch. If you choose to use the Watch to log your workout, you get the HRM data from the Watch but Beacon won’t work. If you log your workout on the Phone, you have to buy a separate HRM. I talked to their Teh support people before posting this review, and was assured that they never intend to fix this. That’s a bummer. I’ve since switched to using Cyclemeter.
Ride default needed 3/5
I want the ability to set ride as my default instead of run.
Latest Update 5/5
Really enjoy the app for connecting with my running friends near and far! I use a Garmin watch to collect the data but almost never look at the Garmin app. Look at Strava instead. We always say if it is not on Strava it did not happen! One note for you, with most recent update the mile split bar graph has the bars getting longer the faster you go. That seems counterintuitive to me. I prefer the way it used to be where the bra got shorter the faster you go!
Not tracking anymore 1/5
The app worked great until earlier this year (2017), when it stopped tracking.
Great update! 4/5
I really like the new layout for iOS 11, I would give it 5 stars but if Strava can automatically update from Garmin’s data from my rides and run, that would make this app my number one!
Very good 4/5
By Graysons dad
Only thing I wish it could do is update your last run while wearing the Apple Watch 3, and not having your iPhone nearby. Sometimes I’m not near my phone for a while.
Chronological order 1/5
I’ve been a premium and non-premium member for several years now. Until the “top posts”style update recently I never had a single complaint. Chronological order makes sense. Users seem to want it, of comments on your Facebook page are any kind of indicator. Not longer until we get “sponsored” posts and ads in the feed. Terrible decision.
Apple Watch letting me down when it counts the most 2/5
I use the Apple Watch app to track my personal runs and my practices with my XC team on the series 2. I really love the social aspects of the app and don't want to give it up but the stats it's giveing me are CRAZY inaccurate. I ran a 5k race this weekend and it told me I ran 2.6 miles at an eight minute pace when I finished the race at 20 min. Please fix the Apple Watch for series 2 😭
App has poor caching and locks up/crashes my phone constantly! 1/5
Love me some strava but until they fix these bugs on I+, I’m deleting it off my phone and letting other api services interface with them.
Sorry y’all but I’m sure these are known issues.
Work it out!
Too many steps to use (Watch) 3/5
Slide Stop Finish Scroll Save
That’s what it takes to end a workout. Five steps.
I end every single workout. How about one or two actions to do so? Cuz guess what? I’m tired when I finish. I don’t want to spend 30 seconds focusing on my watch.
And then I have to open Strava on my phone to upload it? How many alerts do I get for that? At least two, for some reason.
Apple Watch App unusable 1/5
Since iOS 11 the Apple watch app fails to record majority of rides. It will also frequently lose connection to watch requiring user to acknowledge a request to access activity and motion tracking.
Slow slow slow 2/5
Strava is amazing but this version loads so slowly, it’s painful. Also they need to add tenths of seconds for track/speed workouts for runners and show your laps on the app rather than mile splits. If you’re taking the time to press a lap button, it’s clearly more important to you than the mile split!
Am I alone here? 1/5
By Lookout runner
App has been great for years. Most recent update 20.0.1 has my GPS not tracking at all. Please help fix this!!
Device Sync 5/5
A bit disappointing for it misses this feature to sync any fitness gear device as heart rate monitoring. Im using Samsung Gear Fit 2. Hopefully the nxt update it wil be available for Syncing device.
Strange issues 1/5
I’ve always have always loved Strava, but ever since I’ve upgraded to iOS 11 on my 6S I’ve had strange intermittent issues. I updated the app again yesterday, and tonight, during my run it wasn’t showing any movement? Just the clock was counting up. I ended the run and it showed my path and distance and speed, but it wasn’t very accurate. I don’t know what the problem is, but something is outa whack!
Useless Apple Watch App 1/5
I have now lost several workouts now trying to use the awful Apple Watch app. I was looking forward to using my Apple Watch instead of my Garmin 920xt for spin classes but the app screws up the sync every time. Today I did back to back classes for over an hour and a half and after syncing, my Strava app said that I did a ride for zero time and all my heart rate data was lost. This has happened multiple times now. Don’t bother releasing an app if it’s going to make me lose all my data. And now when I try to sync, it just says “uploaded with errors” and I get no data. Useless.
Add Siri Support 4/5
Please add Siri support, would like to start my rides without taking my phone out of my pocket or bag when hitting the trails.
Too much overhead to use 1/5
By Mega junk, looks like 80s
Too many taps required before running. It is useless.
Mostly okay 3/5
Largest issue I've had lately is that start times for rides are sometimes erratic when launching from the widget. Data isn't useless, privacy can be cranked down, social features exist but don't get in the way, and the duplicate entries in health issue seems to have been squashed (most likely apple is de-duping on uuids, like they should have been). It would be nice if there were some degree of quality filter for segments, though, and if geolocation did a better job of detecting segments adjacent to roads, and the difference from said roads...
Still fails to get heart data 1/5
By frustrated strava user
After multiple updates and reinstalls, the app still fails getting heart rate data on my Apple Watch 2. App is otherwise pretty cool, but this is major functionality that doesn't work still months after release.
Update: now with iOS 11, the watch app doesn’t work at all. Was crashing every time I opened it. I reinstalled and it’s stuck on saying “on your phone, sign up or log in”. Duh. I have. I’ve reinstalled again. It’s showing notifications on the watch, but I can’t record. Ridiculous.
Slow and unresponsive 3/5
I used to love this app and used it every time I rode. The latest version, however, has become so painfully slow that I only use it when I really want to now. It takes quite some time to start up, and also is unresponsive for a short time when ending a ride. Not really what I want to spend my time waiting for when I’m getting on or off my bike. Too bad because I like the app otherwise.
I main Strava these days 5/5
I have used and enjoyed other activity tracking apps. I, like many others, was introduced to Strava by a friend. I enjoy the social aspects, being encouraged by friends and in turn encouraging them. I enjoy having challenges to work toward. I love seeing how my runs compare to previous runs. I am glad that the developers keep trying to make the app better.
I tried premium but my training style is more casual so there was not as much value in it for me. A tiered subscription might be enticing for users who are not trying to be professional athletes. Plus my friends can already track me with other apps.
Love using Strava to keep track of my walks and my rides. Gives me incentive. Simple to use.
Love the commoraderie fuels my fire 5/5
It's a great app to keep you connected to people to do the work to be motivated just generallynknow your stats and details Accurate GPS I love it ..share your accomplishments👍
Love it! 5/5
Strava - simply THE cycling app 5/5
Getting on a bike? Going for a run? A jog? Walk? Hike? Go with Strava. Just that simple.
Pair it with Relive for post-activity flyover, too.
Great, but leaves out Equestrian activities 4/5
I do competitive long-distance equestrian competitions, called Endurance Riding. I use the free version to track my distance and average speed while training and during competition... it’s really great for that, and I love how you don’t get pestered with pop-ups to upgrade.
However, I have to log my sport as bicycle riding since there is no option for equestrian (kayaking, snowboarding, ice skating, THREE different kinds of skiing... even “virtual rides” are available as options), which is a disappointment. I would be thrilled to be able to correctly log my sport of choice.
Great app 5/5

Pretty good, but slow w. no power data 4/5
Pretty good, but slow w. no power data
It is very helpful 5/5
By Dr. Tyler Michael
The app works fine 99% of the time and the other 1% is half user error, half the app. I like that I can see what others are doing and it encourages me to keep at it!
Social Media for Cyclists 5/5
By Yellow Klein
I am a Strava junkie. I joined 2 years ago out of desperation to see what my husband was doing online for an hour after he came in from a long weekend ride. What I found was a global cycling community that does fascinating rides and posts terrific photos. I follow Tour de France pros and British housewives who create art with their routes and my local club buddies. I pit myself against climbing hotshots and mega-milers, happy to just be somewhere on a list with them. I upgraded to a Garmin 520 and I use a Garmin heart rate monitor. I sync with my iPhone and other than the occasional glitch overseas, I have had no trouble. And my marriage is better than ever!
Great functionality, fun to use 5/5
Great App. It's fun and motivating to see your friends out exercising! Distances can be a little off, think this has to do with GPS tracking interval setting. However, more frequent GPS pings use more battery power, so feel the app strikes a good balance.
Excellent App 5/5
I love it
Love using Strava to keep up with friends, etc who are also into running and cycling. A little friendly competition goes a long way! Still waiting on them to add Rucking as an option though!
The best bike app out there 5/5
Used Strava for a couple of years now. Very reliable and accurate. Works well with my other devices such as HR monitor. Highly recommend!
An athletes sidekick 5/5
If you run, cycle, swim, hike, whatever, definitely use Strava to log your activity!
Find it, Ride it, run it. 5/5

Great App 5/5
Definitely one of the best apps of its kind!
Using to track commutes. Sometimes slow to start and stop.
Amazing app 5/5
All the information a cyclist needs in one place.
Great bike app 5/5
The app is awesome. I use it to track my biking and the leaderboards are well done. I sync with with my Garmin 520 and it's very seamless.
It got me off my butt - and keeps me going 5/5
By table for two
I've got nothing to compare it to because I have not used any similar application before. Suffice it to say Strava played a considerable factor and getting me off my butt and keeping me motivated to go out and ride a bike. My health and physical endurance have improved considerably. I like the many metrics it provides and its integration with other devices (GPS, Hesr rate monitors, cadance monitors, etc). Support is also very good. There are still a good number of things that could be simplifief of new useful features added, but that - for me - is no reason not to give Strava a well-deserved 5 stars (my wife loves the "beacon" features - worth paying for the upgrade).
My go to app for tracking mileage, workouts, and improvements 5/5
