What's New in Version 4.4.0
Thanks for using the app! Since our last update was released over 207,000 miles have been logged with the GPS and members finished 141 races. We've fixed every bug that has been reported and added some great new features!
* Pace coaching. Pick a goal pace for a workout or race and we'll tell you when to speed up and when to slow down to get to your goal.
* Popular routes. We've aggregated public GPS sessions to show all the running route hotspots around the world.
* Better training plan management. We've made it easier for you to remove old training programs to make sure you can stay focused on your current goal.
* GPS tips. If you're having trouble getting a signal at the start of a workout we'll show a tip bubble with suggestions to get you going.
* Recently viewed route lists. If you're like me you're a creature of habit so the list of routes and distances you look at regularly are now bookmarked for easier access online and offline.
* Unsaved session indicator. If you've ever got back from a run outside your house you've seen our message that we're temporarily unable to send your workout to the server due to weak or absent internet. We've always saved the workouts but we get a lot of feedback that you don't know where to find them! We've added an "unsaved session" badge to the create routes tab to show you when there are workouts that need to be sent to the server. You'll be able to select each workout and resubmit it from inside your house, office or gym when the internet signal or wifi is stronger.
Happy running and let us know if you've got any feedback for any of the new features at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks and happy spring running season!

Great running app
Decided to start running 8 weeks ago, and chose this app to help me. Worked great since day 1. Easy to use, helped me find loads of routes nearby shown on map with hills etc. You can track progress against route as you run, so you won't get lost or even worse run too far! Stores your activity so you can check progress weekly. Also helped me find routes when away from home on hols, great to know you can keep routine going even if away. Heart rate monitoring was added a few weeks ago, and works great with my polar h7 Bluetooth monitor. Finally loads of interesting articles on running to learn from, and lots of graphs available on website such as pace, heart rate etc over time. Would strongly recommend.
Another good update to an excellent running app
I've been using walkjogrun for years now and last year used it to complete my goal of running >1000Km in a year. The app is full of great features and is under continuing development and support. Well worth the money. Just got the latest update and used the newly added pace monitor function. It was a little bossy for the first 2K or so but I soon settled down to the pace I had chosen and kept on track for the whole run with minimal interference from the app. This will be useful not just for challenging runs but to help me slow down for those recovery runs too! Good stuff :)
I decided to get back into walking after a friend ended up needing heart surgery and this app is great! Although I'm not going far I enjoy plotting my route and seeing how far I've actually gone - with some surprising results. My husband was surprised that a short walk we took along the beach and back was three miles, much further than we had thought so he was very impressed! Well done and thanks for the app.
