Keeps me motivated!

Long time happy user  Bartholomew Bargain  4 star

I have found Runkeeper to be very helpful in keeping track of my runs, rides, hikes and walks. I've liked and had success when I've followed the training plans as well. Runkeeper does need to continue to innovate and strive to provide smarter technology for its user base as other companies begin to embrace machine learning and algorithms to provide tailored training to individual users.


Good easy way to get running and keep running  Televisionaryguy  4 star

The best tracker for me!  Multi cat  5 star

I always use Runkeeper to track any type of my activities. 6 years. Very recommend at least to try if you never use it before. Huge thanks to all the Runkeeper team for great app!


Disappointment!  iMamma  1 star

I was such an advocate for Runkeeper. I have recommended it to anyone getting into running. But last year I got a Garmin and switched over to Garmin connect. Now I just got the Apple 3 watch and want to come back to Runkeeper. Yikes! Accuracy is awful! It puts zigzags on my map I did not run and my miles logged is still too low (I know my routes). I used to be able to see splits in half miles and that is gone unless I can’t find it in the mess that is the user interface. I used to be able to compare my runs and now that is on the pro version or go version. The whole interface is an advertisement for Runkeeper Go. I am out!

Easy and friendly


Great app for staying motivated and tracking your runs  @NoGforme  4 star

I’m only using the free version so I can’t give it 5, not knowing what it’s like to have the full version. For the free version, it does a great job of keeping track of mileage and average pace and the number of runs or other exercise activities you've completed. The reminders to run are also great for keeping you motivated. Using the average pace is better than having it notify you of current pace at intervals, which seems more inconsistent and unreliable as it gave me wild variations throughout my runs. I like the challenges too. I run anywhere from 3-9 miles on a given day, about 3 times a week. It also has a training schedule if you need one to train for a marathon. I wish the list of alternative activities would include an option for me to customize and add one to the list instead of just having to pick "other" but maybe that comes with the paid version. Overall, the perfect app for a novice or avid runner. Not sure if it’s perfect for the regular marathoner but I used it on my half marathon and thought it was great. I like the more recent feature of it automatically detecting a pause in your workout so you don’t have to manually do it every time and refresh it when you start up again. That was a nuisance before. Glad they included that now.

Awesome app! It keeps me motivated and is very accurate with predicting my progress


Too hard after your money  roadtoawe  1 star

I still use RunKeeper but it annoys me that I had paid for the Pro version, which was advertised as a one off purchase. Then they changed to ongoing payments and downgraded us early customers to the free version to make us pay again.They want 9.99 per month now, like seriously? Do the math how much this is over lifetime. The statistics displayed after runs are rather useless; instead of displaying how you travel against the last run of the same route, or at least using relative measures (better than 75% of prior runs), the show only absolute ranking (115th fasted run, out of good know how many). The app does not pick up obvious GPS mistakes, which happen often here in Sydney; and then present fantasy speeds instead of suggesting to discount this part of the run; biasing the statistics. Only option is to delete the run entirely; fixing via web interface is too cumbersome.


Love the app  541thb  5 star

Thanks so much for designing such a fabulous app

The Bearded Nairny

Awesome App  The Bearded Nairny  4 star

Love this app have used it for years. Only thing is I seem to have a problem with the data populating the fastest average pace. Also since update at he completion of a run the figures are not correct. I.e the narrator says 7.8 kms run at 5.01min/km pace but the map says 7.6 kms etc


Great Motivator  Micmactrout  5 star

Love this app. Really accurate and keeps me motivated to run!


Mrs  Mishi52  5 star

Love this app! Easy to use covers everything you needs . Keeps track of your progress and sends messages to keep you motivated Love it

Rex Thunderpaws

Syncing and ease of use issues  Rex Thunderpaws  2 star

For me to pay for a subscription, it better be better and easier than doing things manually myself. Runkeeper is not that case. Running with just my Apple Watch series 3 causes sync issues between my phone and watch. Sometimes the runs down show up until I manually restart each app a few times. The elevation sometimes doesn’t register, but sometimes does. It’s just way too hot or miss. I’d rather just use the native apple app and make a manual plan.


Great app!  Arob07  5 star

Been using it for years. Great for tracking runs and walks. ☺️


I love this app!!!  Roof&Lamb  5 star

I've been using RunKeeper since 2010. I started paying for the app in late 2012 to have more information on my walking & running. It's an amazing app! I'm currently walking to hit 5,000 accumulated miles by New Year's Eve, 2017. I've got 374.78 miles to go 😁


Aleida  Albeit4good  4 star

Great tracker for walking, running, biking, and hiking. Just make sure you put in what your actually doing. A walk in the park is different from a walk on the hillside which is more of a hike, slower but more strenuous. You burn more calories

Excelente muy bueno cumple con todo y lo mejor que te anima jajaja  Domenico 1975  5 star



Great App not just to track Running  I_live_for_this  5 star

Awesome app to track and monitor your progress not just for runs but any calorie burning activity!

Doc Ozone

Quits after start  Doc Ozone  3 star

I have used Runkeeper for years, however the latest update fails and needs to be restarted before activity starts. It seems to be caused by IOS 11.0.3 update. Please resolve this issue.


Love it  Borat6480  5 star

I don't pay for the full version. I wish I would have found this app earlier.


Nice running app  emotor  5 star

I yds this app for running. The location and elevation estimations have been steadily improving.


Excellent App  Jb/mavslova2000  5 star

We enjoy this app for jogging and walking!
