I’m really competitive, Strava helps me to analyze my performance. That’s simply amazing.
watch out for unauthorized charges.
gx4jx3ox1 on 6/22/2018
Somehow I got signed up for strata premium at 7.99/month plus tax. It was charging my iTunes account for 6 months without my knowledge and I never even used the app. I wasn’t even running!
No ads please!
ihategooglecalender on 6/22/2018
I pay for this app and the last thing I want to see in my feed is ads for Wahoo or anything else. Please stop screwing with the app or you will loose me for sure.
Still no iPad support? Really???
FrostByteVA on 6/21/2018
I may not ride with a tablet, but it is definitely my device of choice to review rides and give kudos. So, no kudos to you. Also, if I can’t get heart rate from my swims, you can’t track stress and thus the only reason I’m currently a premium member goes away. Please, capture the hr I give to you so that I don’t have to cancel my premium membership.
It used to be great!
Ex-almost user on 6/21/2018
It feels more and more like Instagram after each update. This latest update discloses the watch I use. I feel like I’m spamming my friends with a Suunto ad every time I post. No one wants to see ads. I won’t do it to my friends even if you pay me. I have to keep all my activities private so no one will see that irritating ad. What’s the point of keeping my premium subscription now? Well, I canceled it. Way to screw things up.
Update the Apple App!!!
jennevek on 6/21/2018
The app on Android offers options for walking and hiking. Not so on Apple. We keep asking for an update so we too can have these options!!! Please update the APPLE APP!!! Especially for those of us who pay PREMIUM EACH MONTH!!!’
Good app I like it a lot
Bkoons on 6/20/2018
I use this with my fit but but I am not a runner so I can’t Get the miles with out running and I can’t run other then that I love it it has more features then my Fitbit app does so I use both if it would track my goal miles it would get 5 stars
Fun and motivating
GdeS on 6/20/2018
I really like using Strava to track my rides and compete with friends. I wish the Apple Watch app would allow us to custom what we see. I’d like to have elevation gain as an option. The new Element Bolt thing on the feed is super annoying.
Does not track mileage accurately
Jojojapan82 on 6/20/2018
I’ve been using this app consistently for a few weeks now and am deleting it today. It does not keep accurate track of mileage during running. Some days I will have run 5 minutes and it tells me it’s been a mile, when I know I’m not that fast, other days I will have run 13 minutes and it tells me it’s been 0.1 miles when I know I’m not that slow! I wish it worked better, not sure why it doesn’t but I’m over it not helping me keep track of my miles.
Can’t customize record screen
PKPrime on 6/19/2018
Won’t go premium again. Can’t customize record screen. For ride; only see time, ave speed and distance. Went with garmin. Totally customizable and works great
It’s ok
justine2425 on 6/19/2018
I went from a Garmin and not sure if I like it for tracking my runs. Last run I did it shorted me by .5 mikes. Been using it for a while now. And still it’s auto pause doesn’t work well shortens the run.
Elevation Correction
Sir Apps alot on 6/19/2018
Please have an elevation gain correction function in the settings on the app. Maybe even an “auto correction” option as well.
Love this app!
misskris133 on 6/19/2018
One improvement for my safety contacts watching the Beacon text: they never know when I intentionally stop or pause my ride. I see and hear the app when I update my status but that never gets relayed to those who are watching me. I then have to go to my Beacon text and manually type in that I’m stopped or taking a break, etc. It would be nice if that info was automatically relayed to them.
Good app but annoying bug with Apple Watch
musicmachine2008 on 6/19/2018
When I complete a run using my Apple Watch series 3, it’ll say no motion was detected despite having tracked distance, speed etc during the run. The workaround I’ve found that works is to put my phone in airplane mode before I leave for the run (I don’t take my phone on the run). I’ve concluded there is a handoff bug between the watch and the phone.
Problems lately with Apple Watch
Toddrun on 6/19/2018
I have loved Strava. The stats, the tracking, the social part. I was so happy I became a premium member. But lately I’m so frustrated and need to find another way. On key Race days or training runs the app on my watch just shuts down mid-run and performs what looks to be an update. My time and mileage get corrupted and I no longer have accurate splits. Why? I’ve turned off automatic updates. Frustrated...
Actual Trash
abbyc niceeeereeee on 6/19/2018
i was in the middle of a run when i realized i wasn’t getting my little “half a mile” “1 mile” updates. i then realized that it was timing me but it didn’t record anything else. this is NOT the first time this has happened to me. i’m deleting this app and i wouldn’t recommend getting it. won’t be redownloading until they fix these bugs. i wish i could give 0 stars.
Posts/activities being in CHRONOLOGICAL order!
A Guy Who Runs on 6/19/2018
They hired a ****ing moron from Instagram as CEO and suddenly forgot how time works. User feedback about the feed changes has been universally negative and hundreds/thousands of premium (paying) customers have cancelled their subscriptions. Strava still refuses to fire the moron, fix the feed, and become usable again. Boycott Strava!
Very nice with one issue
a stickboy on 6/19/2018
Very nice with one issue. Why is there still no way to have a week be Sunday to Saturday? The so it matches my other fitness apps. Monday to Sunday is just weird. Why not just give the option for either?
I want to use Strava
Gammon-King on 6/19/2018
All my cycling buddies use Strava but why doesn’t Strava do voice updates for cycling and not just running? Under Armour’s app give voice updates for free while Strava’s paid app doesn’t do it at all. I might switch back just because of that.
Happy but...
Adb315 on 6/19/2018
I would love to be able to log in and actually see all my KOMs listed instead of just a handful of them.
Wavers between 70-80% Good
Luke Lucas on 6/18/2018
I left a competing app over a year ago to join Strava, purely for the social aspect and in all regards there, it was a great move. The vast majority of my friends use Strava for their running and biking so it’s wonderful to have that added motivation. And for the most part, using Strava (as a premium subscriber) is pretty great. But the Apple Watch app continues to be plagued with issues that frustrate me to the point of considering revisiting that old service. - Constant, random notifications that there’s a new activity to upload when there *isn’t* a new activity to upload. And sometimes those notifications come at *horrid* times, like at the start of a new run. My brain panics and thinks something has gone wrong, but now, it’s just Strava telling me, for some reason, I have a new activity to upload 🙄 This isn’t so bad on an outdoor run when I’m in total control, but on an indoor treadmill run, it can be dangerously distracting. - Seemingly incorrect/impossible split times on some runs (there’s no way on a regular non-race day I run a 7:15 mile followed by a 8:10 mile— I know my body, and that’s not right) - Sometimes when tapping to finish/save a run, it somehow registers a new run to start and I never know what to do with that run. Do I just delete it? Did something from the actual run I just completed not register correctly? - Multiple “runs” registered in the Activity app. For example, when I returned this evening, there were *three* outdoor runs registered in the Activity app. All had the correct mileage & times, but only one had actual information regarding calorie burn; the other two had zero calories registered. After deleting the two seemingly incorrectly registered runs, I discovered that heart rate data in the “correct” run was missing. I’m not a developer, so I don’t fully comprehend how difficult it is to make these things work, but I know it’s hard work. Yet it’s incredibly frustrating, these many years in, to still be fighting what seem to be basic “growing pains” issues in the Watch app that should have been sorted out ages ago.
after update keeps crashing
vrtt on 6/18/2018
very slow if i can get it to open :(
Fantastic until they took away dark mode
dhisey on 6/16/2018
The app is a wonderful hybrid of data collection and social media, I wish I had the option to have a dark mode though. It used to have a blacked out scheme and it was really nice. Now with all the white it’s blinding, if it had the option for dark/light mode it’d be a 5/5
Several years in and no Siri support
Petar on 6/14/2018
This is a huge disappointment. Still no support for Siri in this app. Get it together!
Mostly good
Garry Stevens on 6/14/2018
The app works, 90% of the tone. There's a serious issue with the push notifications and alerts generally, in that in you clock through the push notification, the app opens directly to the comment or activity, but doesn't clear the notification. You've gotta navigate back out and clock on the in-app alert icon. Just a poor programming issue for an established product to have.
Logs double in Apple watch
rlyn85 on 6/13/2018
I like that it works with my Apple Watch and the activity app. BUT if I enter my previously logged runs from the Apple Watch workout app, then it adds them and sometimes twice into the activity app. Even if I delete them from the activity app it eventually shows back up therefore throwing off all of my workouts.
Apple Watch app
future DirecTV customer on 6/13/2018
This review is for the Apple Watch app, the phone app is great. I do not use the Apple Watch app because it uses the Apple Watch heart rate monitor which is not accurate. I use a Bluetooth chest strap with the phone app that works very well. I understand Strava wanting a stand-alone app, but it also needs a mode where it only serves as a user interface for the phone app. Showing activity time, speed, distance, heart rate, current segment by name, +/- personal best time. Then I would use the watch app. Please provide this feature!
Great app needs club only feature for 5 stars
all fact up on 6/13/2018
Good app for racking up miles. Here’s what I would like to see Strava: club only segments and rides. An in between level of private and public. It’d be an amazing feature for ‘training’ amongst your own squad
Real hard to use on watch
PeterAuyeung on 6/12/2018
The phone interface and app had been solid. However the watch is just confusing and not work well I ran 3miles loop and when pause and finished it said i have to discard it since no movement been detected I believe strava can do better than that
Was great, now tracking completely unreliable
Rodiddydogalog on 6/12/2018
I switched to Strava years back after Nike + broke their tracking reliability with a major update. Never regretted it until the last few months. Often while running my pace / distance shows as 0. The route will have big inaccuracies. What is reported as my pace / distance - and even time - will have large discrepancies between what shows before and after I upload. I have a reasonably good idea of what pace I’m making and I know what is being logged is wrong. I’ve been through the customer support process twice, but just get the same generic advice about updates, and gps resets. I’m on the latest os and app version - after performing the resets recommended (which included a device settings reset that wiped all my stored wifi passwords) the tracking worked once, then began misbehaving again. I don’t really want to switch to another new app, but unfortunately I’m not using this app just for its great photo sharing and social features - I need working tracking! I’m running in a park in the middle of Brooklyn - if the app doesn’t work there.. Where does it work?
Great app
Betterthingstobedoing on 6/12/2018
I’m really disappointed. Every time I name a ride and add photos and comment I is lost and the generic morning ride is saved with no comment or photos. Shame.
Missing one feature
99879987 on 6/12/2018
One feature it is missing is audio notification of time/pace at every mile.
Mostly great
JTempo on 6/11/2018
You can read all the good reviews. I agree with most of them! Occasionally though a feature you really like will just...disappear. Overnight! No change announcement. No response from support. Just gone. Like this week, indoor training sessions lost calorie counts. Even with heart and power meters. Last week there was a calorie count and now it's gone. Still there for outdoor rides! What does GPS add that the power and heart meters don't? Who knows. But strava sure isn't telling. Or the fitness graph...when your Mac heart rate changes (such as with age) or your training zones change (with FTP), it will retroactively recalculate your entire training history as if those have always been your numbers. So that really strenuous ride you did a year ago before all your sessions with a trainer? Suddenly Strava says you barely worked on it. Because you've always been this strong! Right? They even know it's an issue but it's just too much to add a "don't apply to previous activities" code step. But for the most part, it measures your current activities and it does encourage you to try harder. But for training guidance, perhaps use TrainingPeaks.
Great app, BUT...
zsnow39 on 6/11/2018
I love the format of Strava and the ability to track my sports across platforms. I mainly use the Apple Watch app and it’s ALMOST better than the native Apple Watch Workout app. The best improvement that could be made would be a true multi sport mode for triathlon support. I would pay good money for a subscription to Strava Premium if this were available. Also, customizable watch face would be very handy. As a trail runner and triathlete, I love the audio cues and notifications. They really keep your eyes focused on the trail rather than the watch.
Great app
bloodpuddle on 6/11/2018
Best app for sharing sport with friends. Would be even better if you could tag other users in posts.
Units for swimming
Kharoot on 6/11/2018
Can you add miles back to the options for swimming? It’s a pain to a. Swim 2.5 miles, then b. Have to convert that to yards, then c. Scroll all the way to 4400 yds.
Constantly crashes and hangs
matthewdignan on 6/11/2018
I love Strava but this app is so unstable it should use training wheels. Of all the apps on my phone none are as prone to hanging and crashing as this app. A good portion of the time when going into an activity to update any activity details (title, upload a picture, privacy settings, etc.) the app hangs for 20-30 seconds, often longer and then whole phone is frozen until the app crashes or I can finally kill the app. Each new update I hope it’s fixed but the crashes persist. It was enough to make we quit the paid tier and is getting annoying enough to consider just dropping the app altogether.
KOM listings and Weekly/Monthly segment times please!!
Crashdevil13 on 6/11/2018
Great app! But it would be great to be able able to see my or others KOMs listed on their profiles. Also, can we please get week/month rankings on segments on the mobile app?? As of now these things can only be done on the website.
Ricci a Bilotta on 6/11/2018
I had a feeling that this would work. I use an old iPhone. I don’t get WiFi, except when I’m home. I didn’t think the gps would’ve able to keep track of where I went without WiFi. But there it was on the map! I was indeed surprised. Thanx!!
Was good
MrAwesomePHL on 6/11/2018
I was using app for a while and it worked great but all of a suddenly it no longer tracks miles nor speed while out cycling. I had to switch to map my ride, which luckily for me I had downloaded before some long distance training rides.
Great app but needs some de-bugging and upgrades
Daniel connors on 6/11/2018
I use the app every day on my bicycle and love the beacon option for premium users. The photo option crashes every time I open photos to add them. The app needs the ability to add/create routes from the phone and the online version could be more user friendly for route creation. Willing to up my rating with some advancements and debugs in future versions.
Poor graphs and info
Javi1r on 6/10/2018
The graphs are very simple. It lacks details about my exercise. It focus on segments rather than the activity. It does not sync multi-sport activities from Garmin. All the names and equipment is not sync correctly
Not free
CA Perry on 6/10/2018
Typed in “free running app” and this came up. Signing up and when all done said I had a free trial for a month then $6.99 a month but could cancel anytime. 😖
Love the App - when it’s not frozen up
TheRevenant on 6/10/2018
Best app out there when it works. Unfortunately for the last 6-8 months it consistently freezes and has made it quite the nuisance. I have the most recent version of iOS on the iPhone 8 - so can’t imagine why it’s occurring.
No swim feature via Apple Watch
KnightRiderNM on 6/10/2018
You brag about having a swim feature on Strava, but you don’t have it on the Apple Watch. Very disappointed. You should have added this feature before you made it live on the phone.
Add to Weekly Totals
Gphilly35 on 6/9/2018
Currently Strava does not add workouts like Strength Training to the mobile weekly totals. It only has bike, run and swim. Please include the other activities in the “time” weekly totals so users can see a true hours worked out each week. Perhaps add another label like “other” for a quick reference of hours spent outside of bike, run and swim.
Adding photos
phoobers on 6/9/2018
I wish Strava made it easier to add photos without giving it access to my entire library. Why doesn’t it just use UIImagePickerController or allow pasting in photos?
can’t sign up
天使眼泪在人间 on 6/9/2018
I can’t sign up with email. I’m in China. I don’t know why...
Needs laps for workouts
Ferris10k on 6/8/2018
Great app and love it but it’s not good for competitive runners on the Iwatch. Garmin users have lap options which we don’t. Strava is useless on anything outside of a distance run! You need to add laps for speed work conditions.
The “FREE TRIAL” is a lie
XSOX on 6/7/2018
I received email for free seven day trial. I click the link in the email and I will still charge $7.99 for a month. Premium service is worthless you really don’t get any benefits for the premium monthly fee. Don’t waste your money on this crapy App. Also note, you can create a route but It does not offer real time turn by turn directions. Pointless. Skip this app and download “Go Run”
