I use this app on a 2nd generation iPod Touch, and I wasn't sure exactly how this was all going to work. When I tried it out, it seemed to work great! Thing is, the calorie count seems to be a little low, and the GPS feature was all screwed up. I wasn't sure what to expect, although, because since there would be no internet access or anything for the app to use, s the GPS might not've recorded at all. But when I got back home, it showed me a route that was in the general area of my run, only the line was messed up. First, it would show me running through lakes and houses, and when I moved the map, it would turn into a straight line. So I was a bit frustrated, because seeing that it actually had an idea of where I was, I had gotten my hopes up. Also, I had measured out my distance to be a mile previously, so I knew what distance I would be covering, but on the app, it says it was only 0.86 of a mile, which I hope is untrue (because otherwise I'd be cutting my run short). But it was still a great stopwatch, and it DOES record my time.
Better than the others!
This is one of my favorite apps. I use it just about every day to track how long I walked my dogs. This app is less intrusive than some of the other walking/jogging apps because it does not make you login. I used to use iMap My Run until I realized that all my walks are saved online. I don't want to share where I have been with others and I don't want some company saving where I have been. This app does not require a login or any personal information. It's perfect and highly recommended.
Resets during run
I love the app when it works, but my phone locks after a certain period of time and if it goes too long without me checking it, then the clock resets and I have nothing to show for a run. THis has forced me to 'play' with the phone during the run to keep it from getting locked out and resetting. It's incredibly frustrating and annoying that I have to do this, but otherwise it's a great app.
