Runkeeper - GPS Track Run Walk



    Runkeeper - GPS Track Run Walk's review

    Published: 2014-09-23, by .

    RunKeeper allows you to monitor your fitness activities by using the GPS

    • Simplicity
    • Web version sync
    • Good-looking UI
    • Needs extra features and data
    • Asks for data contact permission (Why?)

    "Track your workout"

    If you want to monitor your workout in order to check if you're progressing there are lots of Android apps that can help you in this issue. RunKeeper is a simple and good-looking tool that tracks distance, time, pace, calories, heart rate (if you use a complementary cardio equipment) and path traveled on map.

    It uses the GPS to track on the map your routes. Actually you can design them before going out running. This way you will monitor distance, time and the approximated calories. It shows on a bar graph your progresses. It has to be said that this is one of the easiest-to-use workout monitoring tools. Just run, stop or pause the tracking. Its simplicity is its strongest point, specially for those that doesn't need detailed info. However it's at the same time a weakness: we're missing other useful data as speed average, maximum and minimum elevation, more stats graphs, etc. Some of these features are on the website, not in the app. This should be improved. You can find more info about heart rate and upload some data from the app to your account.

    RunKeeper has been developed by FitnessKeeper Inc., a developer who has just launched this app. It was first launched on iOS with remarkably success. In Android is also being well received.

    If you're looking for a simple app for tracking your workout, this is a good choice. Easy to get the hang of it, although with just few data.

    This app straight up sucks now. It used to be good but now they've broken GPS on it. I've done a factory wipe of my phone and clean install and still GPS doesn't work. Don't bother contacting their support it sucks. They don't actually try to help you. Also the last update they deliberately removed the GPS sync button and had only the "Pay us more money for the upgraded version." Crying shame, I used this app for almost three years with hundreds of mileage logged. Will need to find another one.

    I don't like the fact that activities from other apps that are sync'd to Runkeeper don't count toward challenges. 05/26/2017 My company wellness plan uses Runkeeper for workout tracking. I do a lot of my running on a treadmill due to arthritis in my knees (my treadmill has a shock absorbing bed). Runkeeper does not sync these workouts from my Garmin watch, which means I don't get credit for about 90% of my workouts. I don't understand, a workout is a workout. What does it matter if it uses GPS or not? Please consider implementing this in a future version. Thanks

    Easy to use and good. I've used this app for 6 years now. All of the annoying, buggy issues that used to be there have seemed to be fixed over the past couple of years.
