  • Crashed unexpectedly

    By DinaDeana
    The new version doesn’t add existing activity to training program. It’s crashed right after frying to add it. After that it is just not opened again.
  • Crashes on opening

    By EimSD
    Was forced to update when I updated my OS, the new runkeeper crashes immediately after trying to open.
  • 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.
  • Love Runkeeper!

    This is a great app to encourage yourself as well as friends! I like the notification from friends who have just worked out and have a new post of accomplishment!
  • Motivation

    By Sportsatelite
    Since October of 2012, I have logged over 500 activities, over 3k miles, and RK has been with me all the way. Very consistent, easy to share, set goals, create training plans, all the goodies. Go is great for my loved ones to monitor my solo distance running often set in a country environment. RK will keep you motivated to improve as a runner and an athlete! Seems to sync well with the SquadRunner app that I have recently begun using. Thank you!
  • Only network feature need to improved!!

    By Go tictac2
    I think I like the free version of run keeper as it provided me many follow up reports. I have only a request to improve the friend sharing features.
  • So FRUSTRATING...false promises from Runkeeper!

    By Tucson Milliken
    I have been using Runkeeper for over three years. I really want to LOVE this app, but am so frustrated by the false promises that the company keeps putting forward. Before the iWatch, this app was a great app for tracking runs while carrying your phone. The iWatch unleashed what we as runners all waited for, and new “phoneless” running experience with the same great run tracking, and this is where Runkeeper has failed (iWatch Series 1), failed again (Series 2), and critically failed (Series 3). Run tracking on iWatch GPS/Cellular is not rocket science for app developers, as I have tested a variety of other apps that prove consistently accurate and functional. Consistent and functional are the key words here, cause Runkeeper is neither. I am a premium subscriber, dropping more than $50/year to allow me to access the Runkeeper training plans...but, oh wait, those training plans are NOT transferable to iWatch despite 4-5 months of false promises from Runkeeper that “it is coming”. Secondly, do you have any idea how frustrating it is to be in mile 3 of a ten mile run and you look at your watch is says you only ran 1.2 miles? Yes, this is what had happened inconsistently on my watch without my phone, yet no other app has this problem! I am sad to write this review as I want to LOVE this app, but when we are in the age of autonomous vehicles, GPS/Cellular watches, etc. and $50 annual membership, you expect certain core functionality with continued improvements rather than inconsistent and flawed programming with false promises.
  • A runner’s perfect tool

    By Matso
    Love this app!!!
  • Inconsistent

    By Fivefurus
    I’ve been using this app for a few years now and it works sometimes and sometimes it doesn’t. Now I can’t get the audio cues to work. It just keeps saying, loading audio cues. The audio cues don’t work with my Apple Watch either. The audio cues are key to me especially when I’m doing interval training. When I send in a request to fix the bug it takes 3-4 weeks for them to get back to me.
  • Fine app; insufferable pop ups

    By D.J.Rufus
    Pop up ads, in the form of offers and "challenges", run the paid premium experience. Remove the pop ups and I'll give it five stars.
