"Track your workout"

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

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.

    I often take long bike rides and sometimes takes some breaks. I pause runkeeper but after a while realize that runkeeper started again by it self. This happened first time a month ago and is really annoying cause it destroy my timings. I have also problem when posting a result on Facebook, it will always be a different result than I have on my phone :(

    I love this app, it has helped me build up my fitness and I can see how I am improving. However, I am wonder about the speed as you are actually walking, it is quite a few mph out which is a lot when you are trying to improve lol

    I like this app but it's lack of support for my garmin heart rate monitor means I can't get the most from the app. Also was there not a way to share info to the s-health apps on my Samsung?
