  • Intermittently accurate and annoying interface

    By plinplonplipoopoo
    Been using this app for about two months now. It is difficult to find previous records. Green cold are used make some items appear to be links when they are not. Sometimes if I carry my phone in my pocket it counts excessive distance. The fix GPS command does not always correct the issue. In summary, It takes a lot of effort to get information out of this app. It is not user-friendly.
  • Used to be a great running app

    By RikGates
    I used to love your app but lately it has it been keeping the correct pace and distance of my runs. It keeps happening over and over. I’m afraid I’m going to have to start using more accurate app to track my progress. Shame you can’t fix these bugs.
  • Runkeeper vs Strava

    By Josh123468263836
    What I like better about Strava: - used more by professional athletes, see and draw motivation from their training - more of a social app than Runkeeper, easier to see and join groups, follow leader boards - marking routes easier on Strava, save them and try to beat your times on those routes - cleaner interface, better maps - Apple Watch use: Strava never stops tracking my run, Runkeeper has in the past, reason unknown What I like better about Runkeeper: - more accurate distance calculations, I can measure my routes on Google Maos and it aligns with Runkeeper, always shows less distance on Strava - Apple Watch interface for Strava doesn’t show hundredth of mile digit, only tenth of mile, in your last mile you want to know exactly how much further you have until you’re done, harder to do on Strava Apple Watch interface - tracking this week, last week, this month, this year on Runkeeper app easier to understand, see and follow, not as intuitive on Strava app - total yearly distance to date easier to see in Runkeeper app, setting goal and tracking is free on Runkeeper, have to pay for that on Strava Overall: for Running, Runkeeper is better
  • Great!

    The free app is great for a not so serious runner.
  • Had it for years

    By como4809
    I save all the runs. It's great to look back at vacation and travel runs.
  • Great app

    By Spotify. Simply the best.
    Easy to track your activities! And fun workouts to keep your workouts going.
  • Support was nice

    By Fred6795
    I have upped my review. After giving Runkeeper a 3 Star because of Watch issues, they responded to me they gave me some hints on how to start the app when using the watch. I think they also may have worked out some issues with this last update, as I have not had Watch issues since the update. I have used Runkeeper for several years; I like how it coordinates with the Apple Watch, so I can easily follow my pace and time without having my phone in view.
  • Dissatisfied user

    I would actually like my money back. The app doesn’t track properly if you go in a repetitive direction.
  • Great App

    By Owney Me Boy
    I use Run Keeper every day. I prefer it over any other app to track time, distance, location, etc. Thank you Run Keeper ! Plus the tech support is prompt and very helpful. Thank you RunKeeper.
