Good App: Missing at least one vital feature
This app shares a similar design layout as the "main" Runtastic app. Though do not assume this means it shares many, if any, of the same features apart from the design layout. As a standalone mountain biking app it is no doubt a good app. However, it blatantly lacks the ability to auto-pause on its own using only GPS. Instead I am required to buy a $60 cadence sensor to enable it!?! The Runtastic "main" app allows this with only GPS, and allows me to track mountain biking activities along with a several others very accurately... I'm left wondering why they developed a specific Mountain Biking app in the first place.
Conclusion: It is a good app... But, you are better off just getting the "main" Runtastic app for multiple activities. As it provides more features without requiring additional equipment.
Fantastic app despite a hiccup
I’ve had this app for three years and it worked fantastically during that time. But it started to drop GPS signals too easily in the last few weeks rendering the app very unreliable. Of course I don’t know whose fault this is. It could be my iPhone or the iOS it runs on. With this being said, other GPS-dependent apps are working properly on my phone. I’m waiting for an update for a possible fix.
UPDATE: I gave three stars but am giving it five stars now because the app started to work again. All I did was to delete the app from my iPhone and reinstalled it.
Disappointing, Frequently Dies
I submitted a review last year saying it was OK. But now I need to amend that review to 1-star. The app has become entirely useless. I start it up at the beginning of my ride, but later during or at the end of my ride, it has completely shut down. When I launch it, it asks if I want to resume, which is pointless because it has lost my route and all of my real stats. I am a computer tech so I don't think I'm doing anything stupid to cause this. The app is up to date (3.2.1). My iOS version is 8.2
I emailed Runtastic's support email address regarding this problem, but they ignored me.
I don't understand why it is continuing to get great reviews -- I can't possibly be the only person that this is happening to.
