Really Buggy

This could be a great app. Seems to log time and distance accurately, and links up with Apple Health and my other fitness/nutrition apps. But the bugs outweigh the benefits. First, it sends me notifications on a daily basis, even though I selected no notifications when I set it up. Those notifications consistently lead to a page suggesting I upgrade to RK Elite. Worse, there's no way to mark the notifications as having been read, or to delete them, so the RunKeeper icon on my screen is always obscured with a little red circle with an ever increasing number on it. Second, the settings seem to randomly change on their own. Some days I get audio cues every five minutes, other days every 15. Sometimes it tells me distance, other times only pace, sometimes both. And since I don't expect the settings to have changed, I either have to suffer through constant interruptions or have to take the phone out of my pocket to change the settings mid-run. Worse, when I take my phone out of my pocket, it pauses my activity - very disconcerting in the middle of a workout. This app seems entirely focused on selling me their paid version and getting me to post my stats on social media. I neither need nor want to broadcast my every activity to the world. I just want an app that tracks my time and distance accurately, and offers a few audio cues along the way. And until they can get the free version right, there's no way I'd consider purchasing their paid version.

Good app, but nothing

Update: Thanks to the developers for fixing the issues. It now saves may goals and doesn't randomly delete them. I found out how to update my weight. Which has dropped quite a bit. 34 lbs!!!
Previous review: The update has made the app a little less user friendly. I had to save my goal a number times before it took. Also, now it seems the goal weight can't be updated without going into settings. After doing this it says the goal has been achieved. I have to reset the goal, change the date to why I started(if I can even remember), and start it fresh. There used to be a goal update reminder which is now gone, and no way to update the goal now other than the way I previously mentioned. This is incredibly frustrating. I am about to try another app!

Runkeeper rocks

Have been using RK for a few years now, and have been taking it for granted. Tried using Endomondo because it links with Apple's Health app. It stinks. The audio cues are robotic and fast, making them difficult to understand. You can't customize the audio queues without upgrading - unlike RK which makes the queues completely customizable. Seems like everything that requires an upgrade on that "other" app is included in the RK free version. Why would you use anything else? And with RK now connecting to Apple's Health app why would you need anything else?
