  • AIRPLANE MODE Jan 21, 2018

    By 1StarRunner
    Please adapt this app to be able to function in airplane mode (AM)! Winter is coming and our phone battery energy gets zapped within a few short minutes because of the cold. Also, for the fact that people forget or don't have time to charge their phone before or after they go out to run, allowing the gps to effectively work on AM would be a huge convenience. I love this app BUT since the Nike running app uses this feature, I'll be using that app until this app gets up to date. :)

    I used Runmeter for 7 years on my iPhone and expected to lose all of that history when I moved to a Galaxy. Runmeter's Support team is so professional and helpful that I was completely blown away. I'm used to never hearing back when I contact an app's support, but Runmeter provided clear and concise instructions that actually worked, and all of my data came with me. I'm happy to pay the annual fee to upgrade to Elite for a product that I've personally road tested for 3000 miles. (That sounds really impressive until you divide it by 7 years!) Keep up the good work!

  • Lots of potential Jun 24, 2020

    First, they get 5 stars for support. I couldn’t get my Polar heart rate strap to work and I emailed them. Got a reply in less than 30 minutes, on a weekend, with a fix that worked. Pair it to the phone, not the watch. Unfortunately the heart rate does not update very often on the watch app. It seems to only work when the phone is unlocked. Beyond that, the app has tons of potential. Great stats for running and walking. However, the interface really needs some help. All the right info is there, but it’s not pleasant to look at or use. On the watch screens you have to scroll to see all the info. I also enjoyed the running plans, the interval training features, and the emailing of runs to let others know where I am. If the heart rate screen worked better on the watch I maybe would have paid the yearly fee. If it had that plus a better interface, it would be easy to pay for it. I’ll check back later to see how it develops.

    Super app. Great for planned runs or just tracking what you are doing I love it. Plus tech support is very responsive...
  • Terrific App Jun 24, 2018

    I’m getting back into running after many years off. I’ve tried all of the current crop of apps. Nothing is as flexible and configurable as this. Although the Apple Watch app is not “stand-alone” (bummer since I have an Apple Watch 3), the screens are beautiful and customizable. Audio cues are customizable. In addition, the training plan is infinitely customizable. To be fair, it’s generic for say a 5k/10k and doesn’t have a “dynamic” component (where it’s modified every week) With others (mapmyrun, Runkeeper,) it’s surprisingly difficult to modify plans, switch a run from one day to another, etc.... I don’t know why this app isn’t more popular. As someone who has spent a bunch of time comparing the options ( including the premium versions) this was the best fit for me. Please pay the modest fee for the Elite version and continue to support it!

    I run in an area where google maps and my hunting apps have no problem tracking me via GPS. Runmeter however is basically just a stop watch because it says my GPS signal is so poor. I was trying the free version, maybe that $9.99 a month they keep shoving down my throat for the premium version would somehow boost the signal. I can guarantee I'll never find out.

  • Useless without Elite Upgrade Mar 25, 2018

    By Scott
    I've been a runmeter user since 2013 or earlier. I upgraded to Elite in 2014 when it was a reasonable $ 4.99. Then, in 2017 I STILL upgraded to Elite when the priced doubled to $9.99. It's actually a great app, but without the Elite upgrade, it's pretty useless (to me, anyway). Here's why. I went for my first outside run in 2018 and didn't notice my Elite upgrade expired last week. I spent about 20 minutes trying to figure out what was wrong with my heart rate chest strap. It turns out you need ELITE to measure your heart rate. You're kidding right..? Nope. How about just measure your steps..? Still need Elite. I didn't take the time to detail everything you lose without ELITE but for me, if a running app can't track my heart rate or at least steps, I'll just switch back to my fitness band or use a HR watch with my chest strap.

    Stops Tracking intermittently. I went with this program after seeing a friend use it on a walk. I thought the output it created was nicer that what i was using. However, the program i used worked flawlessly and this one kept dropping position so the data us obviously worthless. She was using a iPhone and myself an Android. I will probably ask for a refund.

  • Inaccurate to a fault May 30, 2018

    By Mpschmitt
    I don’t know why no one else has mentioned this yet, but the pace measurements are all over the map (literally and figuratively) in this app. I’ve been using this for a while and I’ve observed the following behaviors on a number of occasions: 1. It often stalls out and stops registering any change in time or distance 2. When it is working it often reports inaccurate information. For example, on a slight downgrade of a hill it reported that I was running a 5:30 pace, then on an equally slight upgrade it reported I was running a 10:00 pace. My pace was actually about the same on both hills. I’m not that fast, and I’m not that slow. At one point during my run it reported that my pace was 0:00 for about a quarter of a mile, at which point I turned it off and uninstalled it.

    I still love this app on the iPhone for the customizations but hate that it’s still not stand alone on the watch. It also, for whatever reason, has a problem with consistency on connectivity with the iPhone. I have my iPhone in my arm band on my left side and the watch on my right wrist and I get the no connectivity symbol often when running. Sometimes it just stops working completely with the app. Got to get with the program on stand alone with the watch. Until then I’m switching to Runkeeper who actually has a stand alone app for the watch. Also, the notifications on the Apple Watch don’t work. It doesn’t even announce start or stop but the have them there available. Stupid. Cancelled my subscription.

    The elite version is the way to go with this app! I love the notifications it gives me while I'm running so I know how far I've gone or how long I've been running. It also allows me to listen to my music and still receive calls while I'm running. The design is intuitive, complete, and easy to look at. I love being able to see my path on the map. I appreciate being able to share my run with my husband so he knows where I am. Being able to keep a history of all of my runs helps me track my progress and inspires me to improve. Runmeter is fully customizable and the customer service from the developers is top notch!

    A long time iOS user. I've moved to Android and while the app isn't quite as functional as the iPhone version, it's still way better than any of the overpriced options out there that go for $60 or more for a yearly premium subscription. I'm hoping they do something quick with the Gear sport watch because then it would be a ten star app!

    This app is perfect on iOS, but the GPS is inaccurate on Android. I love Runmeter because there is no other tracking app that allows this much customization. Unfortunately, due to the GPS inaccuracy, I usually use MapMyRun instead.

  • Great overall, needs stand alone use for Apple Watch Jan 7, 2020

    By ChaChaFee
    I started jogging and running again after recovering from a previous running injury. LOVE this app overall, just wish it had stand alone functionality for Apple Watch. I like to leave my phone behind when I run, but I’ve been taking it because it gives great statistics. The pacing feature has helped me improve my 5k times and currently using to train for half marathons.

  • Should you buy? It depends ... Jun 13, 2020

    By I love interval data
    It is difficult to rate this app. I bought it due to the shameful lack of run apps that have a lap feature. In my excitement to purchase I neglected to see in the reviews - not in the description- that to use the Apple Watch you need to carry your phone. I bought the Apple Watch so I could run without a phone. So, if you are like me, this will be massively frustrating. (I’ve only used the app once because of this.) Lots of cool screens - if you can read them. The one time I was able to use the app I found it difficult to read all but one of the screens while in motion. No doubt they are slick to look at when you are sitting on your couch. Good luck trying to see data at a glance. This review does not cover any of the other notable features (e.g., plans) because I truly only wanted a GPS app with a lap feature I could use on my Apple Watch - again, without carrying my phone. I’ll keep looking for it.

  • Good app, but persistent issue with Music Dec 1, 2017

    By Irrate Buyer
    I’ve used the app for years, and while I really enjoy it, it seems to have a persistent issue with the iphone music app. The Runmeter will usually stop working correctly if one starts fiddling around with the music app during a run. I have, in the past, notified the developer of the issue. They did respond quickly and request data from my phone to help them identify the issue. The did acknowledge an issue after reviewing that data. However, they requested further data/access from my phone that I was not comfortable sharing, nor did I have the incentive to get into a project with them. So the problem persists. Having said that, everything else about Runmeter is pretty good

  • Meh-support nonexistent Mar 19, 2019

    By ReneeRoxie
    Update: I have tried twice to contact support and the emails have bounced back. Very frustrating. It has a ton of features that it’s impossible to know them all and a bit complicated to figure out. One of the biggest features that I liked no longer works. It used to post to Facebook when I was on a run and then read me all the likes and comments during the run. This helped get me through half marathon training and my first race in 2017. Now, I’m 2019, I’m training again and it no longer works. Might have to go find some other app.

  • Keeps Crashing Apr 7, 2020

    Why does the app keep crashing in the middle of my runs? It’s updated, and I’ve started closing down all other windows to no avail. It is very frustrating trying to map and time a run when it crashes every half mile and stops. This used to be a wonderful way to track my runs-now it’s just frustrating. Yes I’ve emailed support.

  • Watch App That Wont Work With Out The Phone Along For The Ride. Nov 3, 2017

    By Weeezzzzy24
    I had high hopes for this App as I have used a version of it various times through the years. That being said I got this App and upgraded to the elite. I thought it was going to be great until I went on my first run and was dumbfounded as to why my stats would not appear on my watch. I then quickly realized that like before in the past you had to find some way to lug your phone around with you to make this App work. Needless to say I was very disappointed. What is the point of making this App for the Apple Watch if it can't work independently??? Can the developers please get on untethering this App because it has some super legit features I just don't want to carry my phone.

    GPS tracking is not accurate. I've a Mate 20 Pro, and the free Google Fit app tracks perfectly while this paid app tracks the same route, but about 10 meters off to the left. Pls work on your tracking. One star because I've used the iOS version and it was perfect.
