RUN HARDER. RUN LONGER.
Faster uses the latest GPS technology to help you run harder, longer, and well... faster!
NOT JUST A DISTANCE METER.
Faster slows down your music if you don't keep up with your desired distance and target time, so that you stay on pace. It really works, and Faster is the only app that does this!
A LITTLE HEALTHY COMPETITION.
Faster integrates cleanly with Game Center, so you can earn badges and compare your total distance and best times with friends. Or take on the world if you think you’ve got what it takes to be the champion.
RUN, JOG, WALK, CYCLE.
No matter how you exercise with Faster, you'll be surprised how easy it is to keep your desired pace if you simply have an audible reminder when you start to slow down.
➠ What else can I do with Faster? ➠
✓ Select from a number of presets to quickly set your target distance, or customize the distance yourself.
✓ Hear customized voice feedback (male or female) during your workouts.
✓ Track how many calories you're burning during your workouts.
✓ Look back at the detailed log of each workout.
✓ Earn achievements such as Night Owl or Globetrotter for specific types of workouts.
✓ Using Faster's Game Center integration, you can compete with your friends and strangers across the globe for total distance and best times.
✓ Feel free to lock your iPhone for safety while running because you can instantly see your current progress by tapping the home or power button, without unlocking the device. Yet another feature that's exclusive to Faster!
✓ Lots more!
➠ Q & A: ➠
● Can I use Faster at the same time as other fitness apps?
Sure! Just load the other app first, then switch over to Faster and begin your workout. Faster works great alongside other fitness apps, but it's feature-rich and powerful enough to stand on its own.
● Will Faster work if I just put it in my pocket while I run?
Absolutely! Faster doesn't care where you put it -- in your pocket, on your arm, in your hand, or wherever! Just be sure to secure your iPhone so you don't drop it.
● Will Faster work indoors on a treadmill?
At this time, Faster requires an outdoor GPS signal. But we're seriously considering adding this functionality. We want this feature to be 100% reliable and easy to use before we include it.

Faster cannot play DRM-protected music. Fortunately, iTunes hasn't sold DRM-protected music since mid-2009. If you do have some old tracks that are DRM-protected, you may upgrade them through iTunes for a small fee.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
What's New in Version 1.5.0
➠ Now view your workouts on a map! Red segments show where you were moving very slowly, yellow where you were just a little too slow, and green where you were on pace.
➠ Visit Faster's settings to register with RunKeeper Health Graph. Once registered, Faster will automatically send your workouts to Health Graph.
✓ Fixed the way decimals are spoken (e.g. "one point five one" instead of "one point fifty-one")
✓ Other minor UI tweaks
★★★★★ Don't forget to rate Faster 5 stars if you like it! If you have any feedback or feature requests, send us a message via the feedback button in the app. We love to hear what you think of Faster!
...having iOS 6 forced upon me... *sigh*
Now that I'm using this app on a new phone with iOS 6 installed, I have a very small problem with this app. The app doesn't seem to "keep" any changes you make after you complete the app's tutorial... I guess that's fine for now. If I'm not running, I'm speedwalking... so I just have set it at 6 miles and 102 minutes, even if I walk the entire time, that's still good enough for me... *sigh* But I hope you folks will update this app for those who change between speeds often. Oh, one more thing... DON'T UPGRADE TO iOS 6 IF YOU CAN HELP IT!!! D: -_-
Can't Wait For..
I bought this without seeing that it's not really meant for treadmill running. I still really enjoy this app and it actually forces me to push myself harder on the treadmill because my music slows down more easily. I'm looking forward to the app adding treadmill capability so I can get a more accurate picture of my workout progress. Still a great app!
I want to love this app but I can't get it to work! I have tried everything from shutting my iphone5 off, shutting the app off, but everytime I get stuck on the "select runtime" portion of the tutorial for first time users! Any tips? Help! I really think this app would be awesome for training!!
