RunKeeper alternatives


RunKeeper
RunKeeper tracks your run or bike by how far you went, how long it took and the route you travelled. It has a personal dashboard to see all of your historical activities and monitor how you are progressing in your workout routines. Also, you have the ability to share with the RunKeeper.com community (which becomes your own personal cloud of fitness stats), along with Twitter and Facebook to get your friends and family in on the interaction. Nothing pushes you more than being held accountable by your loved ones. The app also integrates with an iPhone's music section to play tunes while you work out.
RunKeeper alternatives are:
MapMyRun, Endomondo, Dailymile, runtastic, Strava, RunMeter

2012 RunKeeper makes its Personal Training feature free


Fitness app RunKeeper announced that its in-app race training feature is now free. RunKeeper launched FitnessClasses in 2010 for $10-$25. It partnered with Olympian Jeff Galloway to create four different training regimes that lasted up to 24 weeks. These same plans are now available at no cost to you. RunKeeper also said they made updates to the app's "visual design, layout, and functionality" and are continuing to make improvements. What you might notice is that you can now sign-up for the workouts in-app versus having to do so on the website like before. The activity history has also been revamped in the app, so your scheduled workouts appear in the future while your previous workouts appear in the past.

On Galaxy S2 - awesome to keep monitor on sites and share on facebook etc, also I like how you can add your own training software. One annoying bug I've been having since the last update, it disconnects my bluetooth stereo headset whenever loading this application or when gps signal is picked up. Was working fine before. Otherwise good application.

I like this application, operates perfectly and gives me incentive to workout more. The web integration is also very helpful.

Application is buggy. Their client support is Nonexistent, and there's no excuse for that, since I heard they got funding. Even besides that, I'm paying for the premium subscription and have paid for a few training classes as well. The most you get from posting on the discussions is people saying, Yeah, I have this issue, too. I sure wish they would fix it. Too bad they don't actually view these posts.

When I do interval works on the monitor, the application says each lap has a 15' elevation climb, which is ridiculous. Google says they don't see it, so it's a issue on Runkeeper's end. And after a few miles that inaccuracy is only compounded.

The Site support for this application is great. I can analyse the aerobic workout by the seconds to monitor changes in my pace. Information is never lost as every thing is stored on the run keeper servers. That's good since I recently factory reset my Android.

Used to be awesome. Now, the Gps is not correct. Too bad. I can now run 3 miles in 1 minute and 31 seconds. Please fix the distance monitoring.
