Just found this on iTunes. Seems the best of it's type from online reviews and from iTunes. Was £3.49 but now FREE, seems a great way to burn off that Xmas turkey

Sorry about the rushed posting but trying to post this from phone will add more detail shortly

I can add android to the list of platforms too.

Although I am not sure how it compares to runkeeper PRO, which has also been made free.

Runtastic is European & multi-platform & multi-lingual

Runtastic have just released a PRO version of their app (Runtastic PRO) which could be a real threat to Runkeeper. It’s pretty functional and includes two key features that aren’t currently in the Runkeeper Pro app:

Workout challenges – compete a particular distance in a defined time, meet a particular pace target (available in Runkeeper Pro), complete a particular distance, run for a defined time or burn X calories
Competitions – challenge yourself or friends
in-app graphs of speed/elevation etc

The other issue it seems with the current runkeeper pro is the lack of features or the increased number of in-app purchases

From online comments seems people are unhappy with the latest version of runkeeper pro with their removal of some functions and a lot more in-app purchases

I would personally install both as runkeeper is free this month and this only for a limited time and see what you think personally

Prefer this over the runkeeper app. Been using the free version will download this now. Thanks for posting and heat added!

Why you should download this App today!

Customers say:

★★★★★ Worth Every Penny!!

This app is a must have. I have hundreds of apps, many of them fitness apps. This is the first app that I feel inclined to write a review. This is a very user friendly app.

★★★★★ Excellent!!

Tried them all, but this is the best by far. GPS feature is very accurate and never loses the signal.
--Venetianer

★★★★★ Love it! Solid app!

Great work and I really enjoy using this for all of my workout needs. Great data and usable for US people just as much as European folks.


Whether you're new to the physical fitness scene or you've been training for years, there's one thing that all serious athletes will tell you; and that is to keep track and monitor your progress so you're continually inspired to push yourself that extra step. Without careful monitoring, you begin to feel that you're not progressing at the rate that you were hoping for initially.

With runtastic PRO on your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad, you can easily monitor your progress and rate it against fellow competitors, and even map out your route, all without ever leaving your home. The training diary lets you keep track of all the exercises you've completed to help keep you inspired, motivated, and focused. We've also included a bit of positive reinforcement with a sexy voice feedback that speaks in both English and German.

A good set of high-power tunes is also very helpful when you need to maintain a strong pace; and with iPod integration, you'll be jamming to your favorite tunes while you're burning off those calories.

Here are some of the amazing features of runtastic PRO:

✔ Track exercises via GPS- Automatically records time, distance, calories burned, speed, elevation and more!

✔ View your current position and route on map.

✔ Training History of your exercises

✔ Sexy voice feedback in both English and German

✔ iPod integration – Listen to your favorite music during training

✔ Competitions- Challenge your friends and let the voice feedback tell you if you're leading. (CAUTION – this is addictive!)

✔ Sharing- Publish your activities on Facebook, Twitter, as well as the runtastic sports portal.

✔ Indoor sports- Manual data input offers you the ability to keep track of your exercise regimen such as treadmill, gym training, or yoga.

✔ Landscape mode

✔ Heart rate integration in combination with dongle

✔ Interval training

✔ Heart rate zones for training

✔ Accurate altitude calculation

✔ Lite version available, with in app purchases and paid updates

Proud of your accomplishments? You should be! Share your victories on Facebook, Twitter, and the runtastic fitness portal, to inspire and encourage others by your progress, or just to brag a little.

You can try the lite version if you like, but if you download runtastic Pro now, you get all future updates for free!

Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

what good is this on an ipad? lol

Does anyone know how this compares to Endomondo on the Blackberry?

They probably use a segway for the ipad version, too lazy to run

Also you'd get better miles - god they must be very healthy after that long ride!

Just found that this is also free on Android Marketplace for Android users & for Blackberry devices, now amended title!

I don't think this FREEBIE is going to last long may only be for the day so pls get it NOW whilst its free!

runkeeper pro is better (and reduced to free from £9.99), i have tried both....not a great deal in it mind.

Thanks will give it a go. Never really got used to running with my iPhone (heat added)...

What do people use to hold their phone? Recommend any decent arm strap/holders?

I thought this was a free download so how is it a deal it's a free app now?

I've also used both on my iPhone and rate this over runkeeper pro. Its personal pref but I I've downloaded both now.

I'll still keep both just incase runkeeper pro adds some new content rather than removing it and making me have to pay for it.

great app but i'll keep runkeeper pro for now too..ty

I'll use for walking, I found runkeeper useless. Endomondo is ok yet it always overcooks milage, hopefully this will do better.

cheers

Doesn't appear on the Android Market for me (only a dodgey T-mobile app for Austria?) - also tried the link from the site. Any other Android user had any joy?

thanks for posting - just downloaded it!

Seems to have disappeared from the Market at the moment. Agreed all the other sites confirm this deal (including AppBrain which is what I use), but when it links to the Market there is nothing to find - I'll check again tomorrow.
