No help from Help Desk


The high ratings for this app are phony. When you use the app a pop up asks you to rate the app but only allows a 5 star rating. To give other than 5 stars you have go into the App Store to the app to get in and give a different rating, though your automatic 5 star rating remains in the overall ratings.
Meanwhile though I have written for help to the Runtastic Help Desk for two months I never received any response. I’m now looking for another squats app. Below is my earlier rating which has not changed.

In December I wrote a 1 Star review as the pro app stopped working properly and I could not find a way to contact the developer. The app would add 2-5 squats per set by not counting them all. There was a message to contact the Help desk. I wrote to Help 3 times during January but never received a response. Meanwhile from skipping 2-5 squats per set then it stopped working altogether. I deleted and reinstalled the app. Now it skips counting about 10 squats per set. With 4 sets per exercise, those are a lot of exhausting squats, as I hold 5 lb weights for added exercise as I would do the squats. Of course its record-keeping of how many squats I’ve done became meaningless.

Works very well

Perhaps the only issue with the app is it’s overly sensitive sensor of sit-ups. If you don’t get yourself ready before the timer ends, you have to pick up the phone reeeally carefully so that it doesn’t count any sit-ups. But that’s not a reason to give less than 5 stars.

Great app but needs links


I have used the pro app for a couple of years. In that time I have watched the apps of all the other fitness products talk to each other better and better.

The only way this doesn’t get five stars is that it does not integrate with the recordkeeping apps.
