Syncing is Sad 1/5
I downloaded this app because I loved all of the stats and features it offered that Runkeeper and Nike+ do not. I was even excited to pay for the premium account, but at this point it looks like my best option is to just delete the app. It takes up to 24 hours for the app on my Apple Watch to sync my activity to my iPhone app or the website. I contacted MapMyRun for help and was given a response about opening both apps at the same time and to be patient (which felt a lot like they were blaming me for their problem), it should sync thereafter. I can wait 15 to 30 minutes, but 24 hours is ridiculous. In addition, during today’s run, the distance and pace were way off. I am so disappointed. This app has so much potential, I just wish it worked the way it is intended.
*Update...I have downloaded the new update that was supposed to fix this problem. It’s been 12 hours since my last workout and it still has not synced from my watch to my phone. I tried to respond to the developers response below and every time I try to reply, I am brought back to my log in page and them my Map My Run page. No access to connect to support. Same thing happens when I try to access support from my page. This is ridiculous.
Great app with one annoying flaw 4/5
Great app love the friends function helps with motivation. Doesn’t deserve five stars because even though it links to Fitbit account no info is transferred. And you can’t write a review without putting in a nickname.
Mild runs 5/5
Great app. Does the job very well, you can track improvements and plus.
Easy peasy 5/5
This app makes it super easy to track your activity and share, and store for for future use.
Terrible Update 1/5
Since the last update, the app has failed twice to record my long runs. Everything looks normal when I save the run on my Apple Watch and then ‘poof’ - it’s not in the workout history. Also, the voice notifications for miles and pace stopped working. I’ve tried reloading the app and changing settings and still silence. Very disappointing for the developers to break an app that was working perfectly well.
Best running app!!! 5/5
Best ever..can't run without it!
Great App!!! 5/5
By Dirt Boy inc.
I enjoy seeing my progress every week! Great way to improve your runs!
Good but ... 4/5
Too many commercials
love it 5/5
Great if you like thinking you’re a fast runner 2/5
This apps gps is bad! I run 3 apps and this one is never consistent with the other two. Strava hit the mile markers perfectly on during my last half marathon and MMR was off more than a half mile by the end of the race! I’m about to delete this from my phone.
The Map My Run app can be very “touchy” in that if my screen comes in contact with any thing in my pocket )where I keep my phone while I walk outdoors), it pauses the whole workout and routing map. Even if my phone is just upside down in my pocket, it can shut itself off. I need to keep checking the pause position.
Hopefully new update fixes problems 2/5
I have to make sure I end my workout on both my phone and watch. Otherwise my watch thinks I’ve exercised 11 hrs sometimes.
Sync issue? 3/5
By News Room
Use to be able to sync flawlessly with my iPhone 6 and Apple Watch 3. Both have the latest versions of Apple’s software. Don’t know what happened after the update of Map My Runs software, but it’s kind of useless if it doesn’t sync with my Apple Watch. I dropped Runkepper for this very issue. I’d hate to do that with this app. All in all it’s a great app but it seems to have hit a road block. I hope that it will be corrected soon.
I have gotten a response from, I believe the devs, and was told to try the latest update for Map my Run. I have updated to its latest version and will be using this today, 4/20/2018, and see if it has remedied the sync issue.
Keeps me on track! 5/5
I love running with Map My Run because it paces me to a good run time and keeps me from getting lost!
By Jonathon James
I’m curious about the accuracy on the mileage. I run the same route everyday, sometimes it says 3 miles, sometimes it’s closer to 4 miles. With that being said I’m also curious about the caloric burn accuracy.
Thank you for the long awaited stand-alone apple watch update🤩 5/5
Apple watch only, finally & thank you guys.
Voice feedback for it would be much appreciated as well. I would like to hear all those stats every mile as you can with the smartphone app.
P.S. I’m using apple watch series 3 lte version and the airpods. Apparently no voice stats for now. Can’t wait for the feature to be implemented.
Fix Needed 2/5
By Jeremiah Stone
Wrong mileage. Ran 1 mile says I did 3.
Not syncing 3/5
Not syncing to MyFitnessPal
Love this app! I use it for many different kind of workouts. One thing I wish it had was the ability to track afterburn calories after I complete a hot yoga workout!
Works well 3/5
I love these apps. However, until the watch gets features (like HIIT) I won’t give it five stars. I bought the mvp just for that feature and I hate that I have to take my phone when running.
Apple Watch problems 1/5
This app use to work great for me but now if I start my run using my Apple Watch it doesn’t sync with the app. So frustrating that I have to manually log everything since it doesn’t sync anymore. I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling multiple times still doesn’t work
Clearly poor leadership. 1/5
Having been a faithful customer of this app for many years, I’m very sad to say that the app has gone downhill rapidly. I start my run and find it odd when I’m not getting mile marker updates. I assume it was an error on my part only to find an ad waiting for me to respond (yes right after I press start workout). Just like everything else I enjoy the higher tier leadership has decided to leach every cent they can. Most companies can’t seem to find a way to balance profit and quality. It greatly frustrates me that Under Armour bought this app only to make me have to find a new one. I can only assume that the rest of their products will only rise in price but lose quality, so I will no longer be shopping the Under Armour brand.
Good but needs improvement 3/5
I really want to like this app. It was great at first during my initial runs but it seems to have “stopped working”. What I mean by this is that this app no longer maps my run, ironic pun intended. I’ve tried searching for a solution through google and the map my run forum but to no avail. The other stats that it provides are great but I really would like to see my routes.
“No Internet Connection” 1/5
“No Internet Connection” - well that’s obviously not true, since I’m posting this review. The app and website seemingly go down for me a couple times a week.
Last update made things worse 1/5
By The none runner
I’ve used this app for years and loved it. The latest update made voice stats during your run stop working when using I watch(did before). And now it doesn’t sync workouts from watch to phone
False advertising and bait and switch tactics 2/5
I’ve been using Map My Run since 2011. I enjoyed using this app so much I upgraded to what was called Map My Run Plus. This year they discontinued this product and I lost all my data.
I received an email notification that they would discontinue it and that I’d need to just use the free app instead.
Then this month I went for a jog and found all my friends were deleted. This was pretty annoying.
Finally, I don’t like all the advertising. You cannot just run and track your progress- they want you to buy the shoes, socks, underwear and all the other bs. There are better apps out there.
Great app 5/5
Awesome app! If you exercise this app is a must get. 🙌🏽😊
Good App 4/5
By dallas telly
Little confusing when getting started. Like most apps there are little instructions when u tap this or that. There are too many upgrade invites; much less there is no associated cost or menu to pick and choose from. Overall I would recommend the app.
Distance tracking 3/5
By Lou 112233445566
I have used this app for almost four years and have been very happy with it. However, over the past few months, my standard run has gone from 3.65 miles to 3.7 and most recently to 3.8. Looking at the map it appears there is increasing inaccuracy in tracking the run. Has something changed with how the GPS tracks where I am? A 4% variance in the same route seems like too high of a figure. That could make a 10 mike run look like a 10.4 mike run.
Heart rate with Apple Watch fail 1/5
This app could be great, but I typically use training zones during my workouts. The heart rate monitor has failed me on all the occasions I have tried to use this app. All of the workouts were strength training, so I’m not sure if that has anything to do with it, but it appears as if it will be pro during the first few minutes, and stops somewhere in zone 1. On all occasions I have switched to the native workout app, and heart rate would be accurate sans training zone data.
Another nuisance is that the app doesn’t sync automatically with MyFitnessPal although all my workouts are logged from every other app. I have verified that Health metrics are enabled.
I was hoping this would be the on app that I could use to replace all the others since it has all of the metric I am interested in, and can track all of the workouts I would engage in.
Wanted to resume workout 1/5
I held the end button accidentally and it would not let me go back and resume my workout
I don’t like how the screens change while running 4/5
When I take a break I want to be able to take a quick glance and see how far I’ve gone, how many minutes I’ve been running and how many calories I’ve burned. Instead I have to wait for the screens to change so that I can see everything that I want to see. I’d like to see it all in one shot. Other than that I do use the app because I haven’t found anything better
Great App So Far.
Please fix! 1/5
Since the app has had ability to be used on the watch without the phone I cannot get my runs to sync back the app (even though I run with my phone!). I ran a 6 mile run the other day it was recorded as 30! Please fix!!!
GPS inop 1/5
Had me at 18:34 for .5 miles??
I’m slow but not that slow
GPS is not accurate 2/5
I use to love this app but over the last month the GPS stopped accurately tracking my runs. Some days it over reports my miles ran and other days it under reports. One day it over reported by 5 miles! It has also completely stopped tracking right in the middle of a workout. Very disappointing.
The new app less flaws 5/5
I’ve been using MapMyRun app for as long as I can remember. This upgrade is the best by far. Good job team!! Keep up the great work. UA LOVE THE NEW HOVR shoes!! Better than the older model.
Great app 5/5
The app works extremely well for me. The iwatch app is outstanding.
Keeps stopping in my pocket! 1/5
I don’t like that at 10 miles it wants me to start paying money to see the split for every mile. Other than that it works well for the running I’ve done. I’ll find another app for my long runs.
A++ use it every day 5/5
I love this product and rely on it to track my workouts for me. Excellent and the potential growth of this is exponential.
Doesn’t track distance 1/5
Start the app to run and it seems to work but when finishing, it tracks everything except distance! Very frustrating as the app use to work great. I’ve uninstalled and now using another app. If you fix I would be glad to keep using as I have used this for a while now.
Not thrilled 2/5
By Sada Hada Ho
A mile is a mile no matter how fast you run or walk it. Frequently, this app does not calculate a mile correctly. It can be off an 1/8th if a mile upwards of a 1/2 a mile. I keep my phone in the exact place every time so that could not be the difference and all my app’s are always updated so it’s not that either?!?! A bummer if one wants accurate mileage and timing!
iWatch trouble 3/5
I love that I can use the watch independently now. However it took 5 minutes to show up in my feed the first time. The next it took a few hours. After that a day passed. Now it’s been 3 days. What gives? I’m tracking miles for a charity app via this, and I’d just like my miles to be accurate in general. However I’m not going to know if everything’s there eventually.
Doesn’t accurately track distance
Great app 5/5
By T Stockton
Love to run. This tracks it great. Love the shoe tracker
Inaccurate speed 2/5
By road runner66
No matter where I have been the speed is always wildly inaccurate
Swing from 7 to 19 min/mile even at same pace
Love it 5/5
Use it every run to track distance...planning to get a subscription for more stats on my workout. All in all a great app for runners and people beginning to workout and run.
