  • Inaccurate distance

    By FWWesty
    I’ve been using free version for a couple years, but after recent iOS updates and Runkeeper updates the GPS derived distances are inaccurate. Gotta go to another app.
  • Was it’s buggy

    By gshulegaard
    I have been using Runkeeper since September of 2015. I have 375 runs tracked at the time of this writing and I am only a casual runner. When I started, I used it on my iPhone 6 strapped to my bicep. Worked flawlessly. Then I got an Apple Watch about a year ago. Using the watch instead of the phone was a game changer and still the app was flawless on the watch and the iPhone 6. Towards the end of last year I noticed the Watch app wouldn’t always save workouts and I would go back and enter them manually since I have a pretty consistent set of routes. A bit shorter after that I noticed that my workouts on the watch would fail to start properly...but my fix was the same as above. I recently upgraded to an iPhone X and now the GPS data from my runs is inconsistent. It seems to ping GPS at longer intervals resulting in ridiculous looking run maps. My issues have been persistent and this new GPS issue is probably the thing that is going to make me move to the Nike app. I recently got my GF a watch and got her the Nike version. While the Nike app doesn’t have tracking for other activities, it’s app seems a lot more polished as of now. If you are just starting with a run tracker, my advice is to look elsewhere. * I am a free user and always have been.
  • Did great for a long time!

    By Makirunner
    I have been using the free version of Runkeeper for a few years. It worked great! It was fairly accurate and only messed up once in a while. But the past 2 months have been awful. The gps hardly worked and when it has, it’s been inaccurate! I’m disappointed and hope that Runkeeper will look into this. I know I’m just using the free version, but I’m still a customer.
  • Love it

    By Gygyjkfyhh
    I really like this app. I am able to pace myself. This app helps me to see see how fast I am walking real time. I like the challenges. They help to keep me motivated. It is fun to see were you have walked using the map. It would be nice though if it could sense that I stopped. It messes up my average pace when I stop and it keeps timing me. I just have the free version so far.
  • Love it!

    By Rose Glasses
    Keeps great records and makes it easy to do intervals. And I love that you brought back the "last interval" notification.

    Awesome! Love this app! Indispensable! Using it going on 5-6 Years!
  • Works poorly with Apple Watch

    By Pizza yummers
    It does not consistently sync the app and your watch after a run (it fails more often than it works) and thus it doesn’t really work. Until fixed definitively I can’t recommend at all — and absolutely not the pay version. Fine if you run with your phone in your pocket.
  • Bad integration with Apple Watch

    By CELB529
    I have been a Runkeeper user since 2010. I loved this app and used it to prep for a number of half marathons, as well as to get back into running shape after having both my kids. I was so excited when I saw Runkeeper would integrate with my new Apple Watch. I thought I’d be able to run without my phone and still keep all my run history. Unfortunately, I’ve now had five runs that seemed like they were being recorded just fine, only to have them vanish as soon as I stopped. Sometimes they show up in the Apple health app, sometimes they’re just gone. Either way, I have lost too many runs and am now relying on my run buddy to tag me in runs. Hopefully this will all be addressed in the promised update.
  • Easy to use

    By Jessica Daniels
    The app is so easy to use. I like that I don’t have to carry an additional device to track my runs. The large font and big buttons make it easy to see even when I’m not wearing my glasses.
  • Great app for city, parks or trails

    By Alisasahovic2007
    Awesome companion for your runs wherever you are. Highly recommend!!
