very good
b-tils on 3/23/2018
keeps getting better. they added my shoe tracker! one bug is that making note of what gym equipment you used never sticks with the workout. you can select treadmill, elliptical, etc. but it doesn’t save. overall, very good. ***************** Switched to this app since Nike+ Running stopped logging runs. Works well. The start-up is less cumbersome than Nike+ Running. Biggest suggestion would be adding a shoe tracker. I rotate my shoes and it would be nice to have an accurate picture of milage on each pair. Just put in an option to add shoes, and then we can select in a dropdown menu with each run. Individual shoe milage should be viewable as an advanced stat. Thanks.
Good app!
MAG Dad on 3/22/2018
Used this for a yr now and enjoy it. It’s become my number 1 fitness tracker!
Runwalkbigjake on 3/22/2018
Love the app
Add rucking option
Snodawg05 on 3/22/2018
This app allows you to do almost anything when it comes to tracking your run. It adjusts for shoes (if they are in the system), shows real-time pace, and even displays which side of the road you ran on after your run is complete among many other features. This app is amazing.... save but one feature, which is why it lost 2 stars for me. It doesn't allow for the user to add weight To their run. I walk with a 50lb pack, and would love to see the adjustment to calories that are burned carrying additional weight. PLEASE ADD THIS OPTION!! Thank you
Super Motivating
erinfrances_ on 3/22/2018
I’m training for a marathon and have been using this app for a couple months now. It works great, the training plans are awesome, goal insights and the ability to compare your runs is very motivating. I do wish that the training plans were available with the free version, though. The training plans are what make the Runkeeper Go subscription worth it. Note: I don’t have a fitness watch, so I don’t know what the app is like when using it alongside another device. I also haven’t ran more than 4 miles with the app yet, so I don’t know how my phone battery will hold up when I begin running further distances.
Make app more intuitive; notification probs
tinchro on 3/22/2018
When you click on a push notification for a comment, it doesn’t take you to the comment. Also, there is a running list of notifications buried in your profile screen but you’d never know they were there because the app doesn’t display a “count” of the notifications anywhere. Challenges should be modifiable, like I should be able to increase the mileage of a challenge over time. Give the user some more flexibility!
Activity not syncing
Navajo Taz on 3/21/2018
Love the app to track my runs but last few months unable to share after completing an activity. Says system slow check back but never goes through anymore?
Great app!
Twinkles Kay on 3/21/2018
Love keeping tabs in my runs. Does a great job.
Love it! Easy to use
curtisn393 on 3/21/2018
Light weight. Easy to use nice!
Very good when it works
Buzzzsaw on 3/21/2018
There have been times when RunKeeper just froze, requiring me to power off my iPhone and restart. This is a very easy fix, except if I am running a race I can’t just stop and turn my phone off and on and then restart the app. This has not happened a lot - maybe 3 times in the past 10 months, but enough where I felt really disappointed that my run was not being recorded. I recommend RunKeeper for non-competitive situations. Generally it’s a good app but you’ve got to not care when it glitches. I will not be renewing my subscription in a few months because of it, though.
Challenges are annoying
DamianMehers on 3/20/2018
It’s 5 am, dark and I don’t have my reading glasses on. I open Runkeeper to start my run and every single time there is a chirpy message about some challenge or other. All I want to do is start my run. These are quickly going from mildly annoying to extremely off putting. Please give me a way to turn off challenges.
Voice commands don't change
Ifkdksnd on 3/20/2018
Love the app for the most part. The voice commands will not change even after deleting and reinstalling.
Great App
Armydoc.thomas1 on 3/20/2018
Great free app... Allows me to keep track of my pace, distance, and previous paces.
GPS issue with 8.8
69699 on 3/20/2018
Since the recent update, my GPS is now having issue with location. Please go back to 8.7. Without a good GPS lock, this is pretty much useless.
My long term app
eno966 on 3/19/2018
I’ve used runkeeper for 8 years now. It’s my go to fitness app, keeping me accountable. It’s amazing how I’m able to go back and see how far I’ve progressed. Truly love runkeeper
A lot of issues with the watch. Not worth the price.
PhilHOUSTON on 3/19/2018
I paid $40 for this app. Not sure if it’s any cheaper now. I’ve lost 25% of my runs from the app locking up or failing to save or sync. It has great real time data while you run for sure. Not very granular with analytics after the run. I’d check to see if Nike or others are performing as well or better with the watch now. If you like data, other apps may serve you better. I’d at least check before buying. I’m holding out for fixes. For now I’m disappointed with the purchase.
Great app
Nexus1001 on 3/19/2018
Loved the app. Heart rate monitoring stopped working (Polar H10 monitor works fine on 3 other apps I use) - can’t get hold of support - big bummer
Best running app I’ve used
MLS3333! on 3/19/2018
Ever since I started on runkeeper over a year ago, it’s been my favorite running app. I’ve tried several but this one is the most reliable.
rdhdnrs2 on 3/19/2018
My accountability partner for the last 7 years!
An excellent App for a runner
Boring20161 on 3/19/2018
Accurate and easy to use. A very practical tool which I use often.
Best UI in 5 years
DANNYSVOGHT on 3/18/2018
Been running on and off for 5 years, and Runkeeper is the only app I use for tracking them. It’s UI gets better and better, and it’s kept track of my runs for 5 full years now. Here’s to the next 5!
Now my fave...except social media
CarloInTX on 3/18/2018
[update: last couple of versions now show red 6 in upper right of icon indicating notices, but when I open app there is nothing to note. Not sure what it is trying to tell me][update: newest version has habit of crashing right after startup][another gripe about the new sharing method. Instead of linking to the activity, it posts a static picture. This is a big step down.][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?]
Very unstable app
Akshay ghz on 3/18/2018
This happens third time i ran and it failed to track it. It just hangs at fixed miles and does not increase any further. Multiple times ran @4 miles bit it shower 0.4 miles, time increases but miles distance does not. There are better apps..
Runkeeper app
KSAsche on 3/18/2018
I love everything about the app except for not having the ability to add music services such as amazon prime music. If it had that, I would have given 5 stars.
Snowstar72737475 on 3/18/2018
Downloaded the app because it could sync to smashrun, but it wouldn’t even let me create an account. No use wasting your time
JZbreaker on 3/18/2018
Awesome fitness app! It has everything you need to get going and to stick with your goal. 5STARS!
Thank you
Psalcido1 on 3/17/2018
I’ve been using RunKeeper for 3 years and it hasn’t let me down yet👍🏻
Run Keeper is a keeper.
Whisker Biskit on 3/17/2018
Been using Run Keeper since I was a runner 8 years ago +++. Still a big fan and use it for all distance events.
Good app, but...
grinchygrinch on 3/17/2018
This is a very good app. I’ve been training for selection and I have to admit this app knocked my 24.5 minute three mile run to a 22 flat and I’ve seen great gains with my mile and a half and also two mile runs. However, there is no way to track treadmill runs as far as I’ve been able to find out and since I work nights i usually do my interval running on a treadmill and it’s really frustrating to put into notes some info about each run. Beyond that, it gives free workouts and tracks everything outdoors and will make you faster, what’s not to like?
Bradley Squires on 3/17/2018
Sign up today! When my motivation is waning, Runkeeper premium keeps me motivated by showing me my progress. It also helps me see when I am letting myself off the hook by not pushing myself. It is very motivating. Being able to see how today's run compares with yesterday's run and a run a month ago. By keeping track of how far and how fast I run each month I have stayed engaged and motivated. They also email other motivating information. I highly recommend this app. It is easy to use and intuitive.
Intermittently accurate and annoying interface
plinplonplipoopoo on 3/17/2018
Been using this app for about two months now. It is difficult to find previous records. Green cold are used make some items appear to be links when they are not. Sometimes if I carry my phone in my pocket it counts excessive distance. The fix GPS command does not always correct the issue. In summary, It takes a lot of effort to get information out of this app. It is not user-friendly.
Used to be a great running app
RikGates on 3/17/2018
I used to love your app but lately it has it been keeping the correct pace and distance of my runs. It keeps happening over and over. I’m afraid I’m going to have to start using more accurate app to track my progress. Shame you can’t fix these bugs.
fryedaddy91 on 3/17/2018
The free app is great for a not so serious runner.
Had it for years
como4809 on 3/16/2018
I save all the runs. It's great to look back at vacation and travel runs.
Great app
Spotify. Simply the best. on 3/16/2018
Easy to track your activities! And fun workouts to keep your workouts going.
Support was nice
Fred6795 on 3/16/2018
I have upped my review. After giving Runkeeper a 3 Star because of Watch issues, they responded to me they gave me some hints on how to start the app when using the watch. I think they also may have worked out some issues with this last update, as I have not had Watch issues since the update. I have used Runkeeper for several years; I like how it coordinates with the Apple Watch, so I can easily follow my pace and time without having my phone in view.
Dissatisfied user
sd2rt on 3/16/2018
I would actually like my money back. The app doesn’t track properly if you go in a repetitive direction.
Great App
Owney Me Boy on 3/15/2018
I use Run Keeper every day. I prefer it over any other app to track time, distance, location, etc. Thank you Run Keeper ! Plus the tech support is prompt and very helpful. Thank you RunKeeper.
ChallengeAccepted1249 on 3/15/2018
I’ve lost 114 lbs using this app... Enough said
Great App!
tiaowu2voar on 3/15/2018
Loved this app until it started keeping my music from playing on my Bluetooth headphones. It's not worth running without music. Then I found when connecting my heart rate monitor I had clicked a button to make it do that. Stupidest button ever but other than that one flaw that as long as you don't click it this app does everything wirelessly at once: GPS, heart rate, music, running! And when I'm done sends it to my social, nutrition, and health apps seamlessly. Perfection and even better when I was an elite member. (Expensive!). 2018 update: just the phone or just to watch this app works great but trying to do a sprint drill on the watch doesn’t work so you have to use the phone but then you can’t see what you’re doing and the phone and the watch don’t work together at the same time especially when you’re trying to do a sprint drill!!!
Used to be great
Kyle Harmer on 3/14/2018
I’ve been using Runkeeper for years, and it helped me tons in the last year...but for months now it’s integration with Apple Watch has been broken and getting worse. I literally NEVER get audio cues when I start a run from my watch. I deleted and reinstalled, no change. I paid for the full version hoping it would help...might as well be pouring my $ down the drain; less often but still happens occasionally, when I start a run from the app I get done and it didn’t log / record, I just timed me but registered no distance. Anything I can do help improve the app I would love to...but I can not recommend this to anyone wanting to tuck their phone away in a pocket or pouch and use their Apple Watch
Love it
carmencita120 on 3/14/2018
I’ve been using this app for years and never paid attention to all the details and history that it has. Great for keeping track of all my running, walking, biking & hiking.
Going downhill... quickly!
Indigo141 on 3/14/2018
I’ve used this app for about 3 years, maybe more. It was stellar when it first came out. However, updates keep pushing the quality and experience lower. Just recently, it was “updated” to the point where it continually crashes. That was supposed to have been fixed (it really wasn’t). And now syncing between iPhone and Apple Watch are nearly impossible. It used to “just work”, now, it’s such a source of frustration that I’m about ready to dump it, right as I’m heading into training!
LOVE Runkeeper!!
Nollie720 on 3/14/2018
This is the ONLY app I have been using consistently for years now! I’ve tried many other apps, but this is by far the best.
Love the App But......
crazyfit1969 on 3/14/2018
I use this app every single day for my cardio. The only thing I have run across when doing stairs it does not and I haven’t figured out a way to calculate the distance. It just calculates your time. I hope they change that.
Thanks and two Suggestion
رضایی on 3/14/2018
Hi Thanks for this usefull app. Please add some sports music in the app and add mountaineer in the actions. Thank you very mutch.
Ups and Downs
International Space Station on 3/14/2018
Pretty useful and accurate app. I experience intermittent issues with updating my workouts to the server and there is no place to report the problem. Overall I like and use this application very often.
Inaccurate Distance Tracking
Xina0801 on 3/13/2018
Loved this app when all I had was my iPhone. It was typically within a tenth of a mile from my Garmin. Now that I have the Apple Watch 3, I’m quickly falling out of love with Runkeeper. Whether I track on my watch only or my phone + watch, the distance is way off; sometimes the tracked distance is wrong by up to a mile!! I’ve contacted support who gave me a few things to try (deleting and reinstalling) and it didn’t make a difference.
Lousy ads the pop up over screen
OneFreeHour on 3/13/2018
Even after I paid $40 a year I still get intrusive ads popping up on screen. Last time I wrote a review like this they claimed it was bug they were working on. That was several months ago....
