RunKeeper app review
For: iPhone, iPod touch, iPad with iOS 4.3
RunKeeper by FitnessKeeper, Inc. is an app that uses GPS to track your cycling, running, hiking, and walking routes.
This app lets you track all your fitness activities. You can get coaching, hear your progress, and listen to stats through your head-phones; view details of your distance, time, and pace; listing to your music; measure your heart rate; and take photos along your route and then share them to a variety of social media platforms.
RunKeeper also notifies you when you hit new milestones and personal records; allows you to measure your progress against your targets and goals; lets you see how you’re doing through a detailed history; and gives you detailed plans to help you achieve your goals.
Any activity you perform may be turned into a route for later use.
You may post any of your achievements, activities, or plans to Twitter, RunKeeper.com, or Twitter. Followers can view live maps of your races and workouts using RunKeeper Elite.
You can integrate the data from RunKeeper with activity data from more than 70 other apps like Zeo, Garmin, Fitbit, and more.
RunKeeper was updated to Version 3.0 on December 31, 2012. The update redesigned the look of the app and added stability as well as usability and performance improvements.
This is a great tracking app and I’ll be sure to use it on all of my runs.
