Waste of time. You'll spend the workout trying to get the stupid all to actually log your workout.
Doesn't always work
Coach Merritt on 2/4/2018
It's hit or miss on actually registering the pull up. I'll do the recommended number then have to raise and lower my phone by hand because it didn't pick up any of my reps.
Great workout
bluddyb on 9/24/2017
This is a great app. I finally found it again. Thank god.
Pull ups

Good app

Will be good if the developers make the integrations with apple health
Doesn't register pull-ups
NYC is home on 1/31/2017
Followed instructions; doesn't count pull-ups; hence, a pointless app. I did about 7, trying different pockets and whatnot; only registered 1. Tried hanging from neck too. Tried reinstalling, etc.
Not usable without strap or pockets
Uspsjandi on 10/29/2016
I would like this app if I had the option to manually put in how many pullups I did without having the phone on me. The way it is now, with the gyroscope or whatever it is called, it says I do more pullups than I dis.
grrblah on 9/28/2016
Good for tracking in theory
akmurray12 on 9/19/2016
But the tracking system doesn't work
Ishtar85 on 9/15/2016
App constantly nags to 'rate us 5 stars' and gives pop up adds for other apps by the company you already own. No way to turn either of these off, even with the paid version.
Matthew10251 on 9/10/2016
Kept my track of my workouts
Love it
Jacomusdod on 6/21/2016
It's really helped me set a routine
Adameeski on 6/16/2016
Good concept. The sensing of a pull up doesn't usually work but shaking the phone after pull-ups seems to trigger the app to count. The "Integration with Apple Health" isn't true. There isn't any integration that I can find. That line needs to be removed from the app description.
Achieved my goal
831 saladbowl on 5/28/2016
This app is awesome ! Great motivator an it actually helped me achieve 20 pull ups. Bad reviews to me sound like they didn't want to put in the time and effort. And to add I got my 20 with the lite app
Doesn't work for me. No customer support.
H2BMad on 5/24/2016
This app isn't working for me. Please download and thoroughly test the free versions of these apps BEFORE giving Runtastic your money. I had rotator cuff surgery a few years ago, and pull-ups scare the crap out of me. I can barely do 2 complete pull-ups. I bought the entire Runtastic bodyweight fitness pack without trying it out, because it came highly recommended online. I tried two of the apps; Sit-ups and Pull-ups. The Sit-up app works great. This Pull-up app isn't working at all! I wore my iPhone as the app instructed, no reps were shown. It was as though nothing happened. So I stopped and started 4 times and not a single pull-up was recorded. And this app doesn't even give me the ability to manually input my exercises. I have tried to use it every day just to see if I might have done something wrong before. Nothing changed at all. The Runtastic support pages are of no help and no one has answered my email. I'll be requesting a refund from Apple if I don't hear from Runtastic by the 27th.
So annoying
SergeiUA on 5/15/2016
Decent app but constant reminders to login are so annoying
gale9004 on 4/21/2016
All that you need!
Djmidsouth on 3/22/2016
Perfect app for the perfect bodyweight exercise!
Love the scheduling but...
Dj artwork on 2/16/2016
The pullup counter uses motion sensing only, and doesn't always work well. Devs : add a manual counter option. Seriously.
Simple to use
Rob pop pop on 2/7/2016
Simple to use
Ns4l1419 on 1/1/2016
Easy to use great overall app for beginner to intermediate users
Good workout... But
Jcgeerdes on 12/27/2015
A great way to get your pull workout routine going, but it has it's faults that need to be fixed or added. Doesn't always count the pull up and you need to be able to add manually how many you did. This needs to happen to fix what the phone cannot detect.
Won't sense my pull ups
BOBAdia on 10/7/2015
The subject says it all. I don't know if it's because I'm on the 2nd floor or that I'm a short guy. But only senses the first pull up. WTH
mehran bakhshi on 9/25/2015
thanks really nice
Okay. Doesn't always detect the pull up
DJHotcakes on 6/29/2015
I like the other Runtastic Apps. But for some reason, this one is iffy on the sensing of my pull ups. I placed my iPhone 5s in my pants pocket and it sensed 50% of the pull ups that I did. Tried it again on a different day with the phone in my shirt pocket and it read 1 out of 8 pull ups.
Easy Does It
Mandanambapam on 6/10/2015
This app will start you out easy and work you to a strength you can only hope you have until it's revealed.
Espalda en barra
Jailopi on 5/7/2015
Muy contento con el sistema.
Absolutely motivating
Rocking chic on 4/27/2015
I love all the Runtastic apps. This gives me something I can do with little time, space, and equipment. Definitely recommended.
Jmm1970 on 4/21/2015
Good app
Stupid, horrible sensor feature that is stupid
jbru13 on 3/23/2015
Is anyone listening to EVERYONE who hates the motion sensor feature of this app? It doesn't work, so let the user turn it off. This app has succeeded in making me angry instead of getting pullups done, because the design is so freakin stupid. Did I mention that it's stupid? Please...fix it!
Jazz 'n' Bikes on 2/8/2015
Pull ups are really hard to do. So if your app pauses randomly while you are in the middle of your set it ruins your workout.
Great for a free workout app!
Sampler? on 1/20/2015
This is definitely helping Meade progress!
Ads are immediate and obnoxious
MDMDMDMD on 1/4/2015
Open the app, and you get a popover ad. Dismiss it, and you get a loud video ad that you can't skip. Pro tip: let people at least try your app before bombarding them with ads. If the app was good, I would have gladly paid to remove ads. I deleted it before I could even try it.
Doesn't recognize
Allili123 on 1/4/2015
This app doesn't recognize when I do pull-ups
Won't Recognize When I Pull Up
Solifugidman on 1/2/2015
I use most of the runtastic apps, but this is the only one that gives me trouble. I do exactly as the instructions tell (put the phone upright in my pocket). Almost every time I use the app, it won't recognize when I pull up. I can't even get it to register when I wave the phone up and down in the same motion with my hand. It says I haven't done any pull ups even though I have done them all with proper form and full extension. If this app continues to not register, I'll have to go to another brand of pull up app that works properly.
Awesome App Idea and All
EddyyCartel on 12/5/2014
Perfect I've had no problems with it, since I learned to use it. To those that are new be at the bar, and hang from when the app says get ready to go. You'll have no problems. *By the way you can start as soon as it says go, you don't need to need wait until it tells you how many pull ups your doing.
Good, but too many adds
Huckle_buck on 10/23/2014
It is a free version. I get the adds, but so many. Easy enough to click past them. I really do like the app.
Good, but doesn't register correctly
superfreak929 on 9/28/2014
All of the other apps in this series are better balanced to the movements needed to activate the counter of the exercise being done. This one, you need a significant downward motion followed by a hard stop. I have 2 solutions currently. First option: Do your pull ups during the break time and then wave the phone around to get it to register how many you did. Second option: Land hard on the ground after each pull ups. Once again, this is a great motivator to keep track of your exercise schedule but the accelerometer detection isn't quite right.
Doesn't always work.
NixHouse on 9/26/2014
Does not always count the pull-ups.
Could be improved
Amped Up on 8/19/2014
I would like that the runtastic app be able to transition to push-ups & pull-ups during my hike. But I like how I can manually input my numbers to track my improvement.
iPad version is trash unless you star the iPad to your chest
TimJSwan on 6/27/2014
I don't understand why I had to wait for my friend to come fake pull up my device. That just doesn't make sense. Either give an option to manually input or remove the iPad version entirely and state that the app uses motion sensing in the store, description, and in the run page where moving is the next expected step. Until this is done, this app is trash and should not be available.
Good app
Dj2mello on 6/24/2014
Needs tighter motion sensor control.
Irritating ads...
justmdandy on 6/23/2014
Pass on this download
Kool app, starts off slow
BOSS_HOG ✈️🚶 on 6/20/2014
Motion sensor doesn't work well
AppleJacksApple on 6/11/2014
I do slow pull ups. I pull all the way up and back down but the phone doesn't sense the motion. It only works if I hold the phone up and lower it down fast. Please make a sensitivity setting
App "hangs"
Phobop on 6/10/2014
Sorry guys this version freezes on me. Will re-rate if updated.
