Ratings and Reviews
A solid app again
This is the best use of a smartphone I know of. For anyone who runs, walks, bikes or does any activity that involves moving around outside this app is a perfect idea. I have used it for a long time now and wouldn't know what to do without it! Get it. You won't regret it.
This app is working well again for the most part. There are still some features I don't like and the total separation (allegedly) of Apple Watch from the app on the iPhone seemed an overreaction to the inability to program them to work well together while other apps ran. Now, I am back to using the iPhone for Runkeeper. It still shows on the Watch but it doesn't track there. I run a different app on Watch as a backup because sometimes a glitch doesn't allow the workout to track right.
I used to be the biggest advocate of this app but now that it is part of Asics I am less impressed by it. Like Map My Run (now Under Armour) the quality does not benefit from a bigger company grabbing up the apps. I would say now it remains my favorite but still lacks the simple matter of showing my heart rate (as read by my Apple Watch) on my running screen. Sometimes it makes an appearance when I am walking but I would love to have it show when running but no such luck. And yes, I have made that selection in the app so there is really no excuse for it other than weak programming.
I'd say get it if you are a runner but don't expect too much.

Frustrated long time user (Fixed, Kinda)
I’ve been using Runkeeper for a long time. I purchased Runkeeper Pro years ago and I pay a yearly fee for the added features. When I got my Apple Watch I was excited about not having to have a phone. I also loved the feature where I could secure my phone away and start a run on my watch and it worked great. Now I can’t even monitor my run on my watch. I enjoy the voice prompts but I’d also like to glance at my wrist and see how I’m doing. Seems I can’t have both without starting two separate runs and discarding the watch run at the end. I still have to get my phone gone out of my pocket to end my run, which increases the likely good of dropping a $1000 phone. When I submit a complaint to Runkeeper the response is less than satisfactory. It does work for tracking apps and is my favorite fitness app, but until they get the watch integration fix it’s 3 stars from me.
The latest update (9.5) has alleviated part of the watch issue. It now displays the run on the watch again. You still must start it from the phone, but you can pause/stop it on the watch. I’d still like to have the option to start and stop on the watch as it would make it much easier to just set up, put the phone away, and hit go when it’s go time. I’m sure we’ll get there one day. Back to 4 stars.

We're sorry for the issues you're encountering. You should be able to start a run from your phone and have it automatically display on the Watch.

Great app for staying motivated and tracking your runs
I’m only using the free version so I can’t give it 5, not knowing what it’s like to have the full version. For the free version, it does a great job of keeping track of mileage and average pace and the number of runs or other exercise activities you've completed. The reminders to run are also great for keeping you motivated. Using the average pace is better than having it notify you of current pace at intervals, which seems more inconsistent and unreliable as it gave me wild variations throughout my runs. I like the challenges too. I run anywhere from 3-9 miles on a given day, about 3 times a week. It also has a training schedule if you need one to train for a marathon. I wish the list of alternative activities would include an option for me to customize and add one to the list instead of just having to pick "other" but maybe that comes with the paid version. Overall, the perfect app for a novice or avid runner. Not sure if it’s perfect for the regular marathoner but I used it on my half marathon and thought it was great. I like the more recent feature of it automatically detecting a pause in your workout so you don’t have to manually do it every time and refresh it when you start up again. That was a nuisance before. Glad they included that now.
