They fixed the problem.
Does not work after update
Mmaslank on 9/6/2017
After the most recent update it doesn't work. Elevation is way off!!! It shows 60ft instead 650ft. Don't update!!!!
Me siento engañado.
Rafael Amador Rep Dom on 11/20/2016
Compré dicha aplicación y luego de instalarla en un iPhone 6s ni siquiera me permite abrirla. Agradecería a los desarrolladores que me orienten al respecto o que reembolsen mi dinero. Gracias
Update lost the coordinates
Cosplayfreak on 1/18/2016
The app is helpful and fun to use when traveling or taking pictures outdoors. The previous version would include the altitude and gps coordinates in the photo. This new version doesn't include the gps info nor does it offer it in the settings. Please bring it back! If given the chance, I wouldn't buy this version.
No longer supports iPhone 5
Calibus2k on 11/22/2015
Very lame and lazy! Will change rating if this is addressed.
5 Star to 1 Star Overnight!
ReconMarine911 on 11/20/2015
This use to be a great app but now it's not compatible with the iPhone 4s, 5 or any iPhone at the moment. It is my hope that someone gets their act together or start offering refunds.
Lazyboy 2 on 11/19/2015
Latest update makes this app incompatible with iPad 3.
130driver on 11/18/2015
I have been using this app fur a long time with very satisfied results. Probably one of the most accurate altimeter apps in the App Store. Unfortunately when they upgraded the app in their November release the update was not comparable with my 4th generation iPad. I am not at all happy with an app with no support.
Annoyed update won't work on IPhone 5 !!!
Ryan Stanford on 11/18/2015
I have been using the paid version of this app for months and I'm very very annoyed that the newest update isn't iPhone 5 compatible. Can you please change this?!? I am a paying customer and want to be able to use the newest version!
Chudy K on 8/24/2015
Basic, no junky extras, everything you need on one screen
Location, Location, Location
Alaskamarc on 8/23/2015
I bought this app then discovered it wants your location "Always" or "Never," meaning you have no choice to let the app access your location only when the app is running. What kind of data-sucking creeper designs an app to "Always" see your location? No thanks. I just threw $2 away.
data greedy
michaelgalassi on 6/15/2015
Missing the option of only collecting my location data when it is running, deleting it from my phone now.
Great app!
DooglassJ on 2/16/2015
I love the Runtastic app. Very convenient to use!
Lots of info
Mad Dog Davis on 12/26/2014
Great app for sending pics home while on trips. Gives lots of info to friends about climate and elevations temp ext.
Kill the pop-up
Tn0987654322 on 11/1/2014
Annoying pop-up to purchase additional apps needs to be removed. If I like your product and need additional apps, I will purchase.
mvs706 on 9/29/2014
They keep trying to sell you other apps.
Txt & email useless because of advertising
takiefer on 7/21/2014
After taking photo, i simply want to txt or email it with coordinates and elevation in body of message so i can cut and paste into google earth. Instead developer has autopopulated message with "I just checked my altitude with runtastic's altimeter app. How high are you? Check out you altitude with runtastic's altimeter app. Download now." No lat or long and no room in text for useful information. Not what i expect in a purchased app.
Good and Interesting App
Aurorean.wan on 5/25/2014
Like the feature to print data onto pictures I shot. Lots of friends want to have this kind of App. BTW, I have 2 cents. 1. iPhone4s, iOS7.1.1, sometimes, it crashes after I shot an image. 2. It would be nice to have local time print on images.
Not very useful.
Four2x4 on 4/11/2014
Simply not of any real use. There are other apps that supply this basics info, and the altimeter does not respond to changes, ie put it on the floor, and the raise it up. Notice the difference? Not really, the app uses known elevations of a given coordinate and Not, your actual kinfo.
Bruce360/365 on 1/20/2014
Great App
Azkid70 on 12/28/2013
simple fun to use. not much more to say. well worth the money for a weekend warrior.
Works great!
aChildofChaos on 12/25/2013
The app's altimeter is very accurate for where I am.... NC, USA. I found it's also great for spot checking lat/long coordinates!
OK for the Alps, Useless in Florida
Culp-on-LCL on 12/21/2013
Too much error. App even displays disclaimer that GPS-based altitude readings are inaccurate. With iPhone at 12-feet, app reports 23-ft "corrected", 15-ft uncorrected.
Tank you
wlado7 on 10/7/2013
Simple and fast and all on one screen.
Not accurate
Perdidomike on 9/22/2013
Standing on my dock, it puts the elevation @ 20+ feet
Good info
Dclark12345 on 9/3/2013
I like this app. Useful info and I like being able to use the camera from it too.
Consistant Readings
Boater Ray on 9/2/2013
I checked three locations near my home twice. I got the same three readings both times. The readout is very consistent. Thanks for a great app.
Einsteinetts on 8/25/2013
Very nice! Thx.
khawj on 8/13/2013
I can't wait to try this app out on my hike in September in the White Mountains. It's nice that it has a camera feature so I can take a picture at the top! Hopefully it works.
IdahoBaird on 8/6/2013
When they're simple, powerful and they work, they get 5 stars like this one does.
Sciteach5759 on 8/6/2013
Great app. I use it in the mountains to check the altitude at the peaks I hike to. Very accurate.
nener48 on 7/30/2013
I like this app. It's helped figure out elevations where I did know. The temp and wind it's cool. I really like this app. Simple to use. Thanks!
Stamsen’rents on 7/30/2013
Nice to have an app which does one MAIN job and does it well. Please don't get carried away with do-dad-itis!
Additional info in Watermark
HIKER 99 on 7/21/2013
Excellent App. If you could add additional info such as date, time, direction into the watermark, it would be perfect.
Easy to use. Seems accurate.
tdcain on 7/18/2013
Good use of iPhone capability.
ابو زياد😄 on 7/15/2013
Very nice
Pretty good but boring
Richrob424 on 7/15/2013
It does what it claims. Three stars warranted for the lack of anything else. How about a small map where major elevation changes occur. Or even some facts about highest,lowest elevations around the world.
Valkyr.1984 on 7/15/2013
Nice app
Xoxoxo zoo on 7/15/2013
Very nice app
Revisar fallo en foto con altitud integrada
Mfkrmfkr on 7/14/2013
Hay un problema en la función de foto con altitud integrada. En mi caso en la foto sale toda la información correcta excepto la ciudad, según esta aplicación yo me encuentro en San José pero lo correcto es Alajuela la cual es otra provincia y se encuentra a unos 20 kilómetros de San José
Rakija Govnara on 7/14/2013
Really good app!
mozk1994 on 7/14/2013

Can't save more than 1 photo GPS location. Wish they could do more off line for non wifi areas. Good accurate app. I use on IPad and ipod5. Wi fi only.
