Runtime is a simple run tracking app that takes advantage of the latest features in iOS 8, the iPhone 5s, and the iPhone 6. Use Runtime to track your route, time, speed, pace, and altitude everywhere you go for a run/walk/hike/jog/jaunt etc.
Runtime supports Apple Watch for controlling your run right from your wrist. Use Apple Watch to start a run, view stats on your progress while you're on the go, including pace, distance, time, location, and split times and a complete elevation profile. Runtime for Apple Watch is an incredibly advanced stopwatch right on your wrist.
You can also control your workout without the stopwatch widget. Quickly start a new run from Notification Center, pause a run without launching the app, and view your time, distance, and steps all from the convenience of the Today screen.
Keep track of the mileage on your shoes with the new Shoe Closet feature to add your shoes to Runtime and automatically log the distance you run on each shoe.
Visualize your content. Organize your routes and times into places and view rich 3D map images of each run. View pace and elevation details for each run.
Runtime supports the M7 motion co-processor, which allows you to use Runtime as a pedometer. Open the menu to view how many steps you've taken today and this week.
Runtime will also use the M7 to show you when and where you stopped to rest on the trail. Time spent walking is highlighted yellow, while normal activity is highlighted orange.
Share your workouts with friends and other apps. Runtime can export KML and GPX files that you can use with other apps. GPX files can be used for geotagging your photos, or for location simulation in Xcode!
**New in Runtime 2.0** Runtime is now FREE! Track your runs in the app and in HealthKit, start new runs with the stopwatch widget, and view a detailed map of your route, all for free.

Ratings and Reviews
This app is really well done. It goes above and beyond other apps for runners by allowing me to group runs into different locations — like the park, my neighborhood, or my school—and better understand my performance and progress over time in the different locations.
I also really enjoy how easy interval training is to set up.
I would recommend Runtime to anyone looking to take advantage of the power of the iPhone to enhance their runs.
Great run tracking app
I've tried RunKeeper, Strava, and Runtastic in the past. This app is my favorite amongst these due to its simplicity and ease of use.
I like that the app doesn't open up to using GPS right away. That annoys me about other apps if all I want to do is view data. I don't need GPS triggered when it's not needed.
I don't want my fitness apps to be social and Runtime doesn't force any of that on you. You can share data, but you're never promoted to.
Last favorite feature: unlock all features for a one time fee of $4.99. No monthly subscriptions to worry about.
Two things I would like to see added is iCloud support for syncing rather than requiring manual syncing to Dropbox and HealthKit integration.
Yet another pedometer that doesn't work. How hard is it to measure a distance? Been using Runtime for several days and have yet to get anything like an complete, let alone accurate, read of simply how long my dog walk is. It looks a lot better than most others, but always fails either part way along my walk, giving me a partial maps of where I've been, or like today,....it starts off fine, and tells me I walked for 30 minutes...and have gone zero steps and 0.1 miles...huh??
With no info how to make it work better, or way to contact the developer, I am going to ask for a refund.
