Great workout


This is a great app. I finally found it again. Thank god.

Doesn't work for me. No customer support.


This app isn't working for me. Please download and thoroughly test the free versions of these apps BEFORE giving Runtastic your money.

I had rotator cuff surgery a few years ago, and pull-ups scare the crap out of me. I can barely do 2 complete pull-ups.

I bought the entire Runtastic bodyweight fitness pack without trying it out, because it came highly recommended online.

I tried two of the apps; Sit-ups and Pull-ups. The Sit-up app works great. This Pull-up app isn't working at all!

I wore my iPhone as the app instructed, no reps were shown. It was as though nothing happened.

So I stopped and started 4 times and not a single pull-up was recorded.

And this app doesn't even give me the ability to manually input my exercises. I have tried to use it every day just to see if I might have done something wrong before. Nothing changed at all.

The Runtastic support pages are of no help and no one has answered my email.

I'll be requesting a refund from Apple if I don't hear from Runtastic by the 27th.

Awesome App Idea and All


Perfect I've had no problems with it, since I learned to use it.

To those that are new be at the bar, and hang from when the app says get ready to go. You'll have no problems.

*By the way you can start as soon as it says go, you don't need to need wait until it tells you how many pull ups your doing.
