MASHABLE: “... people are choosing instead to download Runtastic, since the company just announced it's hit 25 million mobile users. That's as much as Nike+ (11 million as of February) and runner favorite RunKeeper (14 million) combined.”

“Love that this app syncs with My Fitness Pal! Great app!” @Bebu0611

TECHCRUNCH: “Thanks to MapMyFitness, RunKeeper, Nike and many more, apps that keep track of your exercise and push you to drop those extra pounds are by no means novel. Nonetheless, bootstrapped European startup Runtastic is still managing to carve out a name for itself in a crowded space by offering a simple user experience, while still offering the deeper functionality of higher-end products.”

“Incredible app! I use it almost everyday and it’s motivated me to run an extra mile every time.” @Trcksy

NY TIMES: “I went ahead and downloaded it even though I was skeptical that it would go beyond the familiar territory of similar apps like Endomondo and RunKeeper. Like those two, Runtastic primarily maps and records your route. But Runtastic’s interface has some qualities the others don’t. is well designed, too.”

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

Customer Reviews

  • Love the App! Some minor glitches

    by jrodriguezyapur

    Very easy to use and informative data about my sessions. My only complaint is that taking pictures during the session will crash the session.

    by Studmuffin274

    Better than any other running apps!

  • Crashes way too frequently

    by cloudmir

    For the most part this is a good app- it tracks mileage and various other things just fine. But it is incredibly slow to open (upwards of 30 seconds sometimes) and crashes frequently. You don't lose time or mileage when it crashes, it still tracks it, but it is extremely frustrating!

  • Great product

    by Smallsda

    Does exactly what I need & syncs with my fitness pal to track calories burned during workout.

  • Awesome App!

  • Melhor App de corrida!!

    by Fabio Passos

    Recomendo o Runastic, baixo para teste todos os aplicativos de corrida e esse continua sendo o melhor. O acompanhamento online é excelente e o programa é bem completo. Agora tem até sessão de SUP

  • Love it

    by Lizthrwhiz

    I love this app. I highly recommend it to everyone even a little bit interested in running. It took me from being a couch potato to running a 5k every month. Runtastic is so great for any other type of workout and I love that I can enter runs even if I am unable to get a gps signal during the run. I love reviewing my stats and making new goals. I also am a fan of runtastic squats.

  • Fun app

    by Merry BT

    Easy to use and knowing the distance I've walked really encourages me to keep going.

  • Another beg

    by Bwdezend

    Every launch it asks me for a five star review.

  • Great app

    by Jucada

    Very happy with it.

  • Best app for outdoor exercise!

    by deezrthedaze

    I love Runtastic! It's accurate and keeps a record of all my workouts. I've never had a problem with it, even when it's running in the background.

  • The Best

    by D-RI96

    Does everything I need it to do except do the running for me!

  • The perfect running app

    by Slambert90

    By far the best running app I've ever used. Solid tracking, voice guidance, logging, and easy to use notes with temperature/terrain/exhaustion settings.

  • just best

    by Adbrunell

    Simplesmente o melhor software para acompanhamento das atividades físicas. Só podiam melhorar a corrida em esteira para automaticamente coletar os batimentos cardíaco. No demais, fantástico!

  • Great app for anyone that exercises

    by Skip's _IPhone

    Love it! I am a walker and it provided me with everything I wanted as a speed walker with music. Thank You!

  • Fantastic

    by iSamala


  • Good app but has a few bugs

    by Kcally

    I like this app and have used it for a while. There are two things that drive me crazy: 1) if I enter an exercise session incorrectly and then delete it, it still shows up in my statistics. For example, I entered a run as 5 miles instead of 5.1 so I deleted the entry and entered it correctly. The entry is gone from my list of sessions but if I look at my statistics, my mileage is overstated by 5 miles. 2) at the end of the week, it generally sends me a text saying 'great job-6 workouts this week." It always has one less workout than I actually did. I cannot figure out why this is because I workout in the morning and log my sessions immediately. If there was a certain cutoff time, I would think that the following week's text would be overstated but it never is. I really do like this app and I use it frequently. I would give it 5 stars if they would fix these bugs or tell me how to fix them!

  • Keeps Me Motivated

    by New Apple Man

    What's the point of working out without recording and establishing baseline and progress stats? Love it!

  • Problems

    by SimplySoaring

    1. No way to contact cs 2. Wipe stop is not good, change to touch a button to stop 3. Can't turn off screen to save battery when run 4. Can't set volume in app but not affect Iphone's volume 5. Elevation has a curve but up&down always 0

  • Great!

    by At last!

    I like it

  • Great app

    by CoachM7

    Love this app! Tried quite a few and this, by far, has better options for settings. Easy to upload to website, FB, Twitter ... any place. :) No glitches either!

  • Great workout app

    by kswjosh

    Easy to use. Links to myfitnesspal with ease. I would recommend it highly.

  • Pretty good

    by Olso2270

    This app really struggles in New York City. Even in Brooklyn where the buildings aren't that tall it can't tell what side of the street I'm on and has me cutting through buildings. No way the readings are accurate in the city.

  • Great app

    by Chriszeee

    Love it! Very helpful!

  • Nagware

    by gogopez

    I purchased the product and I still get nagged to rate it. First impressions is this product will require constant influx of money...

  • Great product!

    by DMM33

    Under types of surface need to add something for working out inside on machines.

  • Good app but just good

    by Jovastián

    It is a good app but only for excercises that requiere distance measurement.

  • Love it!

    by Biddlebean

    Have been using the app for about 6 months. Between it and a food diary I have lost 35 lbs! Perfect for GPS tracking and I can go back in and add my treadmill activities.

  • Good app

    by Fitwalker913

    Maps, photos make it fun to use. Syncs easily with myfitnesspal. Friendly, helpful customer service.

  • Dope

  • Love

    by Lingelmama

    Love everything!

  • Nice App

    by Nez71

    Love the app no complaints.

  • Reliable and the price is right

    by Betsyava

    Good for the casual athlete, as well as someone who is just trying to get a handle on distance. The only bad gps experience I had was when I used it for distance on a kayak, and the graph looked like you left a pen in the washing machine.

  • I like it

    by Rondog19

    I like how it syncs with myfitnesspal. My only problem is, that at times it gives me the wrong distance I've run because it shows as if I zig zagged a lot while I'm running and so my distance is longer when on reality it wasn't.

  • Awesome!

    by Septdue

    Awesome app!

  • Great

    by AdoubleT44

    Helpful. Love it

  • The best run app ever!!!!

    by НилKott

    Fat Running app!!!! Love it!!!

  • Annoy you to death

    by Harpo-U/G

    App is not bad though a real battery hog. Even after telling them not interested in rating they annoy you until you do so.

  • Great companion

    by Shaunie O

    I love my runtastic. Even have the GOLD companion for my MacBook Air. Only thing missing is a wearable, but I assume when iOS 8 comes along packing a watch, Runtastic will have an update to complement. Keep up the good work!!!

  • Not happy

    by Daisy Cruz

    My app is not keeping track of my calories or distance!!

  • Great app

    by dimulya

    Great for tracking workouts Can be better if indoor activities like treadmill or elliptical or spin were included. Could also improve offline maps usage

  • Great app

    by King_Mac

    One of the most useful apps I have used. The GPS tracks my path accurately and the stats are fantastic. A must for everyone serious about their exercise routine. Right on!

  • Great app!

    by sevenspunkymonkeys

    I recently upgraded to the pro version of this app and I'm glad I did. It has more features and I can get more detailed stats. Worth the money; I only wish I had upgraded sooner!

  • Hands down best running app

    by Schweet...

    Super surprised and impressed with this app. It has everything you would want in a running app... Automated voice to tell you if you're behind or in-head of your pase, ability to customize your own workout, maps your run, and it taps into your iTunes so you can tap into your motivation. Highly recommend!

  • Love It!

    by jylly'n

    It uploads directly to my MyFitnessPal app and is super easy to use.

  • Amazing support from your iPhone

    by Natalie Christensen

    5 stars all the way! Love it for my workouts. I use it a couple times a week for a light jog but it's really motivating since I'm a pretty visual person. I like seeing the average calorie burn and following my dot on the map. Makes me feel like a CHAMP!

  • Excelente aplicacion

    by Jhony monteiro

    Outstanding xD!!!! 100 points

  • Not bad!

    by LatinoLove

    For running I haven't had any issues.. Keeps your run distance and calorie count in history for future reference. Loving the app so far!

  • Works great with myfitnesspal

Runtastic you are the best thing happened to me after me ;-) It never let's you run alone... Last month I recorded 101 miles on it...this thing rocks A year of transformation --- thanks runtastic. You are the best thing happened to me in last 10 years ;-) Absolute miracle application... Social running Thanks runtastic...

  • Simple, Funtional, Great

    by miguel romero

    I have used many running apps in my day and Runtastic really is fantastic. It is easy to use, and it tracks everything! I enjoy the ability to play my own music and still have the audio feedback.

  • Runtastic

    by Litelady48

    Love it!!!!

  • Great app.

    by Rjanecald

    Love that it syncs to My Fitness Pal.

  • Best for running

    by 2dogsa123

    I've tried a few and this is the best one for running. Syncs well and has good ongoing totals. They need to add an option to indicate which shoes were worn. I like the details if my runs that are available on this app versus others.

  • Motivator

    by Roundtuit60

    Excellent app. Motivating me to work to be more fit.

  • Excellent app

    Has helped me train for Air Force basic.

    by GeeGee02

    I'm still trying out other apps but so far I like this one the best. It's easy to use and does what it's suppose to.

  • Love it!

    by Jessie RN

    I've been consistently using this app for months and I love it. Most reliable GPS I've found so far - so much better than the Nike app!

  • Perfect

    by johnfhardy

    Great app for the novice and the experienced.

  • Awesome

    by Irish72pride

    Love this app. Major download

  • Great App w/ some annoying quirks

    by LE529990

    Argee with others -1 star for all the pop ups about rating. A more serious problem is the clumsy "stop and save session" the button is too close to delete session. At the end of a session I am pretty shaky and have deleted sessions by accident.

  • Awesome

    by Drstatum

    Be sure to save battery life turn off live tracking.

  • Good App, Better than most, has some quirks, though...

    by PeaceOnEarthAndGoodwill

    I have used this app over a year. Has a few bugs, but fairly stable. Would like to be able to download my stats into a CSV for more analysis - other apps have this capability. Quirks and issues: auto-stop/start not reliable - have had issue with restart on resuming run motion to end of run - never restarted - ended up with inaccurate data captured; Need a better pause function - delete is too close to resume on screen; Cue volume is difficult to control; Sometimes Siri gets suddenly activated during a run - why? Thought it was me, but watched it do this when I was not touching the screen at all; Sync all sessions - is manual - should be continuous without user intervention; Calorie calculations seem odd - I run faster, burn less calories...really? Don't trust it, so ignore the numbers... Nonetheless, pretty good app, better than most, none are perfect - trade offs using this app over competitors... No one seems to have it all. Yes, the constant badgering to rate is extremely annoying. Stop that.

  • Wonderful

    by Taranoel79

    Love this app so easy to use and I have a great idea of how many calories I've burned walking running or hiking!

  • Worth it

    by Swintek

    Love it and use it several times a week.

  • Great Tracking App

    by Jimmie Smith

    I'm an average fitness person, not a marathon runner or triathlon participant. I'm training for my first five mile run. I have all the runtastic tracking apps (running, biking, mountain biking, etc) and I've only been using this one for all. It does a great job of gps tracking, time, speed, pace, calorie burning, etc. I don't use the music feature, I just use the music app, but maybe I'll try the music feature and let you know how it is.

  • 너무좋네요

    by juneharuna

    I like this app but I wish they had running on treadmill as an activity. Otherwise I would give it 5 stars.
