Customer Reviews

  • Never run without it

    by Mom4Boys SD

    I love this app and never run without it. I love that I can now play my music through it and still get the mile updates and times which keep me motivated and pushing harder!

  • Ran with it

    by Ola209

    Love it! Listened to music on my iPhone and the app told me when I hit mike markets and my pace.

  • Plus and minus

    by H.richardson

    Great app intentions but the nutrition section is slow to respond, save and edit.

  • Great but I swear it measures long

    by Sean ogrady

    I think it measures about 5% short, other than that it works great.

  • Great exercise app!

    by Rob Hoffman

    I think MapMyRun is an excellent app for all levels of athletes, especially when you link it to My Fitness Pal to track your food and calorie intake.

  • Great App

    by Steve Gabo

    No issues and very accurate GPS

  • Great, but drains battery.

    by Richard Sadowski

    I love the interface and the GPS function. But after a 4-mile walk, my battery goes from 100% to 29%

  • Love this app

    by spicypunker

    I have been using this app for about 3 years now & I use it everyday for all my runs & workouts. from daily jogs with my dog to marathons. The timing & GPS distance measurements are pretty accurate. I never have problems with it. I love that it syncs with my Polar (so I can include my gym & other training workouts) & let's me track the miles I put on each of my shoes. Not to mention I use it to track everything I eat so I can gain or lose a few lbs depending on what I'm training for. And having Humana for my insurance company makes earning points for the Humana Vitality program so simple. Just another small bonus! :-) What can I say, I'd be lost w/ out this app. Lol.

  • Runner

    by Mandie laine

    Love the new version. Does everything I need it to!

  • Works well.

    by ANlMAL

    Works well minus the advertisements.

  • Great app

    by Mom&daugter41

    This app is great. I'm able to track my progress and see how well I'm doing.

  • LOVE this app!!!

    by Memphis Lawyer

    My favorite app available. I use it daily to log my exercise. Further, it's so great to be able to record a run & have the GPS track the distance. Can't do without this one!

  • Too complicated now.

    by Twiseldorf

    Too complicated to use anymore. Slide to finish?!?! This app was better a year ago. Too many options and sub menus now.

  • Exactly what I need

    by JStgo

    It does exactly what I need. I walk and like to listen to the news, other apps advise about my pace in a bothersome timing of every 5 or so minutes, this one lets you set the intervals. Also you can set your route before hand on your pc and its on your device right away to use. Thinking of upgrading to MVP.

  • Distance tracker is off

    by Adamhjdrys

    There's no way I ran a mile in 3 minutes.

  • GreAt app

    by G-i-joe90

    Loved it very helpfull

  • Great app

    by Jaitfs

    I tried a few other apps, but really like the layout of this one.

  • Good app. Please fix Echo integration!

    by evinK

    I have no qualms with the actual app, per se. I want to see the app work better with the Magellan Echo watch. The biggest problem is that you have to start your run from the app, not the watch. This is frustrating and unnecessary. Also, the weekly average number never seems to go above 0, despite that I run ~20 miles/week. I hate to say it, but take a look at Strava's integration with the Echo. That's how I want MapMyRun to work with it.

  • Keep pushin'!!!

    by Jtaughtem

    I dig it.... SUUUUCCKAAAAAAA!!!

  • Great app

    by Mitchdawg111

    Great app

  • Great App!

    by Dezracer99

    Even better since the update!

  • Map my run

    by 20+member

    Walk the same route every night. Excellent tool to keep track of workouts. Tends to get off a bit sometimes marking a mile just a little short. But generally very accurate.

  • Great app

    by AnonymousTip

    Don't run without it. Helps me stick to my goals

  • Great for training

    by Yoloooooooooooooooooooooppp

    Love it... Helps me motivate myself to run more

  • Great

    by Nebraska Kim 7

    I love this app! I have tried many other fitness apps and this is definitely the best for running! The MVP upgrade is great too. It will generate 12 week training programs for just about anything.

  • Great!

    by pkirshman

    I use this whenever I walk/ jog. It is a great tool for measuring distance and estimating calories burned. :)

  • Great app!

    by Rvhperez4

    I have used this app for the last 3 years and it has been a great addition to my marathon training going onto my third full marathon and I have only improved thanks in huge part to this app

  • Worked great!

    by Biittersweet

    It's really a simple and nice app that work really well!

  • Great for logging, gps is a bit off

    by Dcguy13

    I've been using this app for years. It's great for storing running data, but the distance start to get off at distances over 5 miles or so.

  • My best friend!

    by CT234123

    Won't run without this app!

  • Great App!

    by MuskratAggie

    I run with this app every time.

    Best running app around.

  • Great app

    by Suprmnofsteel

    Awesome app!!!!!

  • Nice

    by Xfdhydgh

    Not a bad app. Tracks your run in distance. Wish it gave you more feedback during the run, more than just updates on the mile.

  • A must have for runners

    by Diggidawg

    It's everything I need to track my distance/improvement, as well as plan future routes. I love the mile by mile voice alerts helping me keep my goal. It also shows the calories I'm burning. All around great app for any short/long distance run!! Enjoy!!

  • Pause workout doesn't work

    by Rharmaming

    This app has steadily improved and functions well overall. However, pause workout doesn't work - you can select to pause and the UI indicates it has, but when resuming, any movement (including driving) is added to the point of resuming, so my 1mile walk is updated to 10 when I resume when it should have resumed at 1mi.

  • Love it

    by Leif Arnseth

    Just what I need to keep my butt in shape

  • Very goood

    by Yup good:&$


  • Love it

    by Opheliaday

    Use it every time I run. My only squabble is that this app is usually longer than races I run, but I don't think it's the app.

  • Jump Start Your Health

    by KitKat Diva

    Great for beginners who are just starting to get active for better health. I recommend this app.

  • Love! Everything you want and more!

    by Waste of money$$$

  • by CelesteVargas


  • Running Partner

    by BeautyQueen0103

    This app is wonderful !!! The integrated music helps so you won't have to exit the app to change songs. It also helps you track your miles ran which helps when running around neighborhood or unmarked grounds. I love it and I recommend everyone to download this app.

  • Love this app

    by Kellye Kohn

    I don't use it as much in the winter but I always use it when I do my outdoor runs!

  • Great

    by R0x13

    Awesome app as far as tracking my workouts. However the nutrition tracking part of it seems a little off regarding how many calories I'm allowed to have per day. If there were a way for it to change my allowance based on the activity level I exhibited the prior week, that would be so cool.

  • Favorite app ever!

    by Gudmanaite

    I've had this app for over a year now and no running app tops it! Absolute favorite :)

  • Great App

    by Write4Change

    I love this app and also use mapmyride for biking. It's so nice to see how far you've gone and your pace without having to wear a watch.

  • Good for my purpose

    by Sharpe Girl

    It is great for a timer and approx. distance. I agree about question of accuracy. It is not in agreement with my Fitbit on distance so don't know reliability of accuracy. I also agree that it eats tons of battery so I don't always use it.

  • Awesome

    by Donttrythis

    It helps me track my run and calories burned.. Overall good app if u want to run or get in shape.

  • Generally happy with the app but

    by ladycheshire5

    This app has greatly improved over the years. I really like the iOS platform :)

  • Useful

    by Ehumphrey01

    Awesome way to keep track of runs.

  • Awesome

    by Map2fame

    So useful and easy to use

  • Great App

    by Asharpy

    I just began running and this app is really easy to use and does what I expected. This is a much less expensive alternative to the gps watches which need to sync with something else anyway. I've used mapmyrun for a year and am still very happy with it.

  • Sweet app

    by 00worst movie ever00)

    I'm down on the beaches in Costa Rica and have no idea the distances around here so it was nice to see how far I ran. Thanks.
