By far the best running app
This is simply the best running app of them all. For starters, its simple, beautiful and just works great & accurately, every time. It doesn’t ask me for my email or facebook account like all the others do. The app itself is really gorgeous, and very simple to use. I just hit the start button and everything is automatic. It’s not overloaded with silly features no one needs, like the other apps are.
The distance and pace tracking is very accurate, and I could very easily change the display to have it show me what I want in a really large font so I could actually see it really well while I was running (with the phone on my armband its not easy if its not large) I like seeing distance and pace first, but they also have calories, time, etc. At the end of the run they have their splits section which lets me see how fast I ran each section of my run, and their map is color coded so I can easily see the speed of each part of my run. I also love their heart rate zone display - really professional way of showing where I strained the most. They also have advanced running programs which look really cool, and I will probably buy their weight-loss plan soon.
Last point, the way they let me share my run to facebook is really funny and cool (and they don’t ask for my account, they let ME post). Well done guys. Love it.
Best running app out there.

So I am 14 year old runner that runs about 20-25 miles a week but sometimes more, but this app really suited me, the overall simplicity of this app made it really easy to track exactly when i did the run and all the details about it. there are no glitches with the app but there are a few things that would help make the app better. The first thing is that it would help a lot of we were able to save a certain route that we went on. it’s not a huge deal but would be very nice. The second thing that would be better is if when you stopped running for more then let’s say 5 seconds, (like at a stoplight or crossing the road), it should stop the timer or laser without having to go into the app and stopping the timer. because where i love it rains half of the year and when my phone screen is wet and my hands are numb in the cold, by the time i get into my phone and pause the workout i have to start running again. The last thing that would be better is if when you press start workout, it have a 10 second timer until the workout starts, so if there was a setting to adjust how much time it would take to start the workout it would be much appreciated. Over a great app tho and would recommend to any type of runner.
I’ve been using a lot of Running apps and I gotta say this is the best looking very easy to use and I love the share feature which has different ways you can share your run mine is the maps showing where I run and gives you and option to snap a photo of yourself in all your sweaty glory and and you can send Via iMessage. I do that for my wife so she know I really did run. I love that the app works with the activity app on iPhone and Apple Watch to better share your activity and paired that with a calorie counter or food log like well add your calories burned to your total net calories. Give it a shot use it for a couple of days if your casual runner the Free version is great, if your someone that wants to improve on running and want to know weather you Anaerobic or aerobic than your gonna want the premium which is what I have. Give it a shot you might fall in love. Just wish there was an Apple Watch version
Solid Running App
By Autumn"s Owner
I really do like this app. It is the best running app I have used. Everything is simple and straightforward. Setting are easy to change from the workout screen info to the feedback info. I like the layout of the workout history too. There has never been any confusion about how to use this app! The only issue I have noticed is I need to start this app a good 15 seconds or so before I start my run. This allows the app time to sync with the GPS on my iPhone. If I start the app and start running right away it won’t record anything but time elapsed. Not a big deal to wait a few seconds but something to be aware of. The only reason I didn’t give this four stars is for two things. First it doesn’t record elevation change. I am a trail runner so elevation change is something that is important to me. I hope a future update to this app will include elevation changes. Also, I wish I could start/stop/pause this app through the lock screen. Right now I have to keep my iPhone on all the time while running so that I can have easy access to the controls of the app. This runs my battery down.
It won’t let you cancel your card and charge you
I tried the free trial and now it doesn’t let me cancel before it charges me. I went to frequently asked questions and it says I should be able to cancel my subscription in settings, however there is not one option in settings to cancel. I went back into frequently asked questions and it basically says you can’t cancel or change your subscription until it has already charged you. This is ridiculous since I was only trying the free trial and now I don’t need it. I have heard from friends that this app has scammed them before by charging them up to $80 and $90 before their subscription ends, or they aren’t able to find the cancel trial option in settings. I just checked my account and it charged me $97 randomly before the first month even ended. I have been trying to cancel this app before the free trial was over and I won’t allow me to. I have sent questions, and I have emailed the to only extension of communication it offers but they still have yet to respond to me way past the time they have already charged me $97. If you look in the most critical comments you will see how this happened to so many more people. DO NOT GET THIS APP ITS A SCAM.
Best app for new/pro runners
I don’t really write reviews in general but i enjoy how easy and straight to the point this app provides. I just started out running with my friend and we love this app. You can track your time and miles when running/walking. I signed up for the 7 day free trial to see what’s different vs just using the app. My friend and I picked the coach to 5k. While I’m running I want to focus on running and not check my phone. This app provides a voice that tells you when to warm up/cool down, start running, slow down, and how much time is left and distance you’ve achieved. I’ll definitely continue running with the app and continue on with the program once the 7 days are up.
If you want to start working out I definitely recommend trying this app out.

I have had the app for over two years. It worked well for the first few months, but then failed to complete my runs with me. It would stop working anywhere from less than a tenth of a mile into the run to almost 6 miles. It generally stopped recording at less than a mile.
Why do I still use it when it fails so regularly? It has a beautiful screen layout and lists the previous runs very nicely. Unfortunately I had gone to the trouble of adding my lifetime runs, so that more than 30 years of runs were stored in the app. Perhaps that led to its problems, but I speculated my 16 GB iPhone 6plus was the culprit, and replaced it with an 11 pro max with 512GB of memory. The app still fails to record an entire run. So, I start an UnderArmor run tracking app (it has not failed yet!) simultaneously with Fitness22’s Run Tracker and edit the true run from UnderArmor into the Run Tracker, and so maintain an up to date running log in the beautiful app.
I had contacted Fitness22 about its failure, but without resolution. Perhaps a bad review will help them address the issues I am encountering!
Good not great running app
In general, I like this app. (I have the paid version. ) It has personalized run plans based on your goals and I like how it tracks my runs and integrates with my Health app. I don’t mind that it doesn’t really integrate with my music(you still have to go to your music app and start up what you want to listen to), but there are a few niceties that wish it had. 1) It drives me kind of nuts that while it will have a timer for your warmup, it doesn’t for your cool down. I mean, honestly, both are listed as part of your workout; why wouldn’t they add the cool down timer? 2) Its super annoying that I can’t pause during the warmup. I run with my dog and when she has to go I have to stop & probably pick up a deposit. If that happens during the warmup (highly likely) there’s no way for me to pause that and then I miss the warmup. Annoying. 3) I would dearly love it if they made an Apple Watch app for this.
Good Free App
By Fast Eddie Lomax
I use the free app to monitor my pace and distance during the run, and review the run afterwards. Based on apps I have used, the pace is pretty sensitive, meaning it detects bursts or slow downs pretty quickly. That could be good or bad, depending on your needs.
I am kind of used to using a watch along known routes, so I use this for marking off road or other unknown distance routes, then I know where I should be by overall time.
It has some cool features when reviewing your run. One I like is if you tap the map, it will zoom in and give you distances and the color of the line will give you an idea of your relative pace along the way. I’m sure all of us feel those times we tough it out, it’s kind of interesting to see it on a map.
I used a few of their other running apps over the years, and this one combines all of them together in a sleeker and more powerful interface. Actively updated, works really well. It’s so well done, and I haven’t even tried out the new meal plan section yet! Customer service is great too, just a really good company all around.
I do have one serious request for the developers: PLEASE add Apple Watch functionality! No need to add the whole giant app on the watch, just a simple watch interface for the individual run tracking and notifications. If I could have the helpful guidance of these perfectly designed workout plans without needing to carry my phone with me on my runs this would be a perfect app.
