Runkeeper helps keep me motivated. I find that always want to be my last time. Helps me stay on track. This app is extremely easy to use.
Not so great these days
vamshi238 on 6/22/2018
Have been using Runkeeper since three years, this year I am not liking at all as it’s keep giving bad recording. I usually run on same route everytime, but it’s keep adding .2mile or .1 for same distance . Which is frustrating. Other wise it’s good Thanks, vamshi
A great motivator

This App is a lifesaver & promotes encourages staying healthy.
Kicks me out occasionally

Not overly complicated

Does what I want it to without a bunch of unnecessary stuff.
gilmoregirl100 on 6/21/2018

Great for basic tracking
Pcab999 on 6/21/2018
Using the free version is great Updates splits and tracks my path Nothing to lose trying the free version May upgrade to keep my progress a bit better Completely recommended this app
This App keeps me on track
Nomadic1975 on 6/21/2018

When I get a single like from a friend, the badge notification says I have somewhere between 40 and 50 new notifications.
Runkeeper Rocks

By far the best app for everything and anything to do with getting in shape and staying in shape
Drj7736 on 6/20/2018
You design the chart settings to maximize the vertical display. Unfortunately, this has less than pleasing results. The grid lines and intervals are difficult to interpolate, starting at some random value and increasing in unhandy increments, e.g. 13, 17 , 23, or some other strange interval. Further, the interval shown at the bottom two grid lines often differs from the interval between the top two grid lines. What a confusing display!!!! Strongly suggest that you concentrate less on the vertical stretching to the maximum and pay more attention to choosing a more rational starting value for the first grid line and increment in values like 10, 15, 20, or some such as appropriate and keep that interval the same from top to bottom(are you using fractional values for grid lines and just rounding them off???).

Love it.
srios58 on 6/20/2018
So much more accurate than my health app.
W477Y on 6/20/2018
Can we get the option to manually enter what ever amounts we want for a distance instead of being limited to intervals of a quarter? You have this option on Android has, why not Apple?
Love it !
TravelDelaware on 6/20/2018
Helps me keep track of my accomplishments!
Great app
zf18 on 6/20/2018
Got back into running recently. I used to use Runkeeper but since I was starting over I decided to try I different app. I am back with Runkeeper because it has everything I need and is so simple to navigate. It has mileage, pace, elevation,splits.... LOVE IT!
bobu70 on 6/20/2018
Great program with a lot of opportunities. It’s all up to the individual to achieve his goals.
Worked well until recently
AremgeChs on 6/20/2018
I have been using Runkeeper for almost a year now. It had been working problem-free until a few weeks ago. Suddenly started having issues with the audio stats. I had it set to give stats every mile and this worked properly. Then, it started to randomly give the stats - sometimes as often as 10 times per mile, then wouldn’t give me any for the rest of my run. This kept happening despite resetting the audio stats. Finally had to just turn off audio stats and is working okay. The audio stats will still go off if I happen to raise my arm on which my phone is strapped. Please fix this bug!
MatyaSD on 6/19/2018
Best running app of all time! And I tried a bunch of them..
No longer syncs with watch
MDOG on 6/19/2018
It was a great app but now it rarely starts a run on my watch so I have to choose between having heart rate measurements or altitude because it won’t start the run on my watch if I start it on my phone or visa versa. Very buggy recently
Nice app
Donkey?/ on 6/19/2018
Easy to use! Gives you all the metrics you need
Desksmith on 6/19/2018
Well done. Gives me exactly what I want. Simple and easy to use. Basic model is perfect for me.
Need a calendar
llbuerky on 6/19/2018
Love this app. Been using for years! Great stats and logging etc. but I want to see my runs mapped on a calendar (planned and finished ones) Make it happen! :)
Good for custom workouts. Low on features.
Bathilda on 6/19/2018
This is basic. Yes you can upgrade and will be reminded of that constantly. I still can’t figure out what the upgrade does besides more stats, which do not interest me. Here’s what would interest me. 1. All custom workouts listed with the push of an obvious button. 2. A toggle to stop the counter when the workout ends. 3. Ability to make workout steps come with a customizable short sound. I don’t like robots butting in with voice commands. 4. Ability to turn off ALL voice nonsense. I don’t want to be bothered every mile or whatever it is. 5. If any of these things are currently available, make this crazy thing more intuitive! I hate going on a hunt every time I put in a new interval workout. I’m happy to pay for an app, but seriously, the price point for the upgrade is laughable.

Run keeper has been awesome at helping me start and achieve my running goals
“. Motivation. “
VIN-SANITY...!! 🎚🔥 on 6/19/2018
It was like, what happened, & my life today, always with gratefulness and gratitude.....🙏🚒🌅
Not Syncing Problems
DosXXguy on 6/19/2018
It is my belief that if you only want the free version of the app that your tracking doesn’t sync right away - there are other app I (we) can switch too
Great Exercise App
emt7670 on 6/19/2018
I use this app to track my daily walks or runs. It does a great job accurately showing your location, pace, etc. I like the way it stores information making runs easy to compare. I wish it was a button for after your run to cool down like a 5 minute walk. I do like when you do interval training how it guides you how fast to go and for how long. It really feels like you’re with a buddy and it’s motivating.
Good app
Nobody special 23 on 6/19/2018
Good app for a beginner or advanced runner. Good programs to help increase pace and the most out of your workout time.
Loved it, but watch bugs
Alexandria.Hoffie on 6/19/2018
Have been using the iPhone app nonstop for YEARS. However, during long runs (one of them being my first marathon!!) the Apple Watch app crashed... huge disappointment as I really love this app but I’m scared to trust it again.
Love it
11ipolei808 on 6/18/2018
Love it. Easy to track workouts and link to other apps
crvinu on 6/18/2018
Recently started using this app for my running and it’s awesome and motivates to run longer. However, my recent run calculated pace incorrectly. Is this a bug?
Free and easy to use
Aabrink23 on 6/18/2018
Free and easy to use. Free challenges to motivate you.
No longer able to set target pace
teo del fuego on 6/18/2018
With each update, the app offers les and less. I used to love this app when I first installed it years ago. One feature I loved was setting a target pace for a defined distance. But, alas, no more. This function has been deleted.
Great App!
norms111 on 6/18/2018
I love this app. Very easy to follow and track my runs. Moderate runner
Reaching my goal!!
Griss B on 6/18/2018
I just love it, very helpful and helps me to keep myself motivated
Best app
SueBee9 on 6/18/2018
My favorite step tracker app.
Best running app!
rjgrez on 6/18/2018
Couldn’t be more happier with a running app! Get it
Greatest Run Ap that you can download
Mobile Joe on the go on 6/18/2018
Keep pace on each mile, track elevation, total workout summary, compare workouts, and it keeps track of your PR’s. This ap is the total gamification of Running for these that are competitive. The ap helped me drop from a 9:02 mile this year to a 6:50 mile in just 6 months over 4 miles!! No kidding in 2018!!!
Love, but...
katienpnp on 6/17/2018
Love this app. I have used it for years and input my own work out plans and schedule into it. The only thing I wish this app had was a treadmill setting for type of run. I have it linked to my Fitbit and it picks up from that, but when the weather isn’t cooperating, it would be nice to have the app track my treadmill workout.
Stepho622 on 6/17/2018
I had trouble with one update, the GPS was off, but it corrected the next time I used it.
Sexyboo41555 on 6/17/2018
Love this app it helps me keep in shape
Very inconsistent after updates
Vegasguzzi on 6/17/2018
Mileage is different for known routes and music cuts out. It usually takes two or three more updates to "fix" issues. I paid for the premium version thinking it would be maintained but it did not make a difference
See friends?
bsbgab on 6/17/2018
Can you see friends in live time? Can they see you?
Works well
dizneemomma on 6/17/2018
The only thing I wished it had was a treadmill mode. Since it uses GPS it doesn’t work when you stay in one place.
Love Runkeeper
ACK Sailor on 6/16/2018
Very motivating. Like the coaching. Recommend to family and friends
Excellent walking App
Naser-012 on 6/16/2018
This App is helping me in walking, jogging and cycling. I like the notifications on my activities as far as distance, mapping and speed. It is like a coach assisting me in my goals. Great App.
Dave Sco on 6/16/2018
My running motivational tool - helps loose weight and keep it off - aloha
Distance and time not calculated correctly
avgwhitedude on 6/16/2018
I’ve been running the same route for the past few months (roughly 6 miles at a pace of 7:30-8/mile). Although my pace and distance has not changed, I am somehow running a 4:50/mile pace and running 9 miles... when I know this definitely not the case
