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.
By water wash
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.
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.
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 because it doesn’t record elevation change. I am a trail runner so elevation change is something that is important to me. I keep trying other apps that do record elevation change but I keep coming back to the simplicity of this app. I hope a future update to this app will include elevation changes. Please!?
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.

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!
A simple, accurate, helpful app!
By Pinapple Rose
I first downloaded this app because... honestly, I just thought it was pretty! And thought that if the app seemed fun to open / look at, I might be more inclined to actually run.
This proved true! I started running with this app about a year ago and have used it ever since. I purchased a premium subscription for a few months while I did their Couch to 5k program and loved it. It was simple but effective, and now I run a 5k about once a week! For premium features, you can choose to pay $10/mo, or $40 dollars for a forever subscription.
I opted for the $10/mo as it motivated me to keep running and not get lazy about my practice. After I finished the 5k program I went back to the free version of the app, but would definitely consider going back if I found a program I was interested in.
- I like that you can close kilos / miles, and can control how often the voice updates you on your run.
- you’re not bombarded with information or ads
- simple, sleek, and well designed (I’ve posted a few pics on Instagram and I always have friends asking what app it is!)
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.
WALK OR RUN, ABSOLUTELY, PHENOMENALLY THE BEST
I wish I had found this app years ago. I have been tracking both my runs and walks on Nike Run Club. Sometimes that App sends me to their store, or asks for my login, when I am anxious to get going or in a hurry. If I hadn’t logged in all my runs on Nike already, I would use this app for my runs immediately. Instead, I am using it for my walks since I like to keep them separate. You can input your walks or runs manually on this app which is amazing. It is easy to do, and in fact, motivating. As others have said in their reviews, you open this app and it is ready for you to run. Now I just have to figure out how to download it again separately for my runs and I can get rid of other said apps. Kudos!
Best Running App Ever!!
I used this app for the first time today and it was so cool I had to come here and write a review and add my 5 stars. I have tried other apps in the past, but none of them have been so simple, streamlined, and straightforward as this one. I also love the fact that you don't have to give your email and a password and other crap to a random fitness website in oder to use all the features on the app and save your progress. It's easy to use, looks great, doesn't sap my phone battery, and gives me straightforward info about my workout with the the simple tap of a start and stop button at the beginning and end of my run. Yes, this IS the running app I've been looking for. Thanks a ton!
