Featured by Apple as a Health & Fitness "Best New App" and "Apps for Runners"
Vima is a GPS based tracking app for people who want to keep track of their running fitness goals. It is an app aimed at simplicity that allows runners to keep track of their runs easily without a lot of unnecessary stuff getting in the way.
STATS AND MAPS
Vima tracks speed, distance, altitude, and time. It also gives you a map showing where you have been while you are saving a run.
See calories burned. Set your weight in settings and get your calories burned in real time and on the history page after your run.
Easily start, pause, resume, and save a run without ever getting your phone out of your pocket. Check your distance, speed, time, and altitude from your Apple Watch in realtime.
When viewing saved runs your route shows up on the map color coded by speed. It shows where you went the fastest (green) and where you were slowest (red).
Don't want to look at the screen every few minutes? You can have the app tell you updates on your progress in set distance and/or time intervals.
Added splits to the history review page. Choose from 9 different distances and see how each section of your workout went.
Track the distance on your running shoes so you know when it's time to replace them before they start causing problems

Ratings and Reviews
Simple but buggy and super basic
I’ve used this app since 2015. Intuitive And clear interface, cool satellite map features. The basics of distance and calories and time are well done.
But - to be blunt - the app is a bit lazy and can be made much better than its more effort. It doesn’t, for example, allow for any sort of data analysis. It doesn’t calculate my averages or records. You can’t export the data to save it to save it for posterity.
It is buggy. If you have too many runs saved then it slows way down. The GPS is weird and can seem inaccurate (compared to their apps and online pedometers). WORST is that it occasionally claims I have a free account and am out of runs even though I have been a premiering member for two years. I once tried to install and reinstall to fix the bug but I then lost all my runs over two years. Absolutely stupid. I currently have this issue again and switched to Nike Run club, which is better.
Great app but...
Sadly, I can no longer recommend an app with a primary paid feature is allowing to record more than 5 runs yet gives no way to export AND store them (on icloud/webdav) when transferring to a new phone.
1st, thank you for creating a beautiful privacy-centric app that works wonderfully.
I'd enjoy buying it & will but it needs export (& import) functions for when I go to a new phone. json maybe for other uses as well?
It'd be awesome if the app also had run route export functions too so the route could overlay onto openstreetmap to easily share on a blog.
Lastly, sharing runs are personal & since most runs start & stop at the same spot (& usually similar for many) I'd enjoy being able to obfuscate that start/finish anywhere along the route. This could be done by dragging them or even random.
Thank you again.
Generally speaking you shouldn't have to export/import your runs. If you have iCloud backup turned on (and you allow apps to store documents and data) and then restore from backup your history should transfer to your new phone. There are other reasons to export data as you mentioned, but the app doesn't lose data under the current system. Hope this helps.
Premium features don’t work, bad customer service
I loved the app at first and subscribed to the premium version. But after upgrading my iPhone, I had to download the Vina app again. With the new app I was not able to use the premium features even though I was still subscribed to the premium service. I emailed the developers multiple times and never got a response. Totally awful customer service.
