RunKeeper 3.0 for iPhone App Review
If you are the type of person who makes new year’s resolutions, there is a good chance that you are also the type of person who manages to stick to them for around a week, especially when they involve getting healthy and exercising more. I know I am and for almost half of January last year I did a pretty good job of using my stepper every morning. But unfortunately it is an easy habit to break, which is why a lot of us need a little kick to keep going. Fortunately there are plenty of fitness apps out there to help us on our way and there is a new one that effectively turns your iPhone into a personal trainer. RunKeeper is available from the App Store now and it is completely free.
RunKeeper is a great little app that keeps track of your progress and encourages you to keep going, however you like to keep fit. Whether you want to walk, run or cycle, the app can use the GPS in your phone to keep track of your activity and give you various stats and coaching tips as you go. Now is the time to try once more to get healthy and RunKeeper makes it so much easier.
RunKeeper has been designed in such a way that makes it suitable for all users, regardless of the level of exercise they manage to squeeze into their day, although it does encourage you to do a little more. It doesn’t matter whether you want to prepare to run a marathon or simply burn off those Christmas calories, RunKeeper can help you. A useful feature is the way it updates you on different statistics, such as how far you have run, what pace you are running at and many more. You can of course disable this feature but I find it helps to be reminded of such things and the notifications only make me want to do more and improve.
If you would prefer to exercise to a soundtrack then another nice feature is the way it lets you access your music library through the app without having to exit so you can create a playlist to help keep your mind occupied while you run. Of course, your exercises are not just limited to running and the app can keep track of other things, such as cycling and swimming. Selecting the relevant activity before you start will provide more accurate results when it tracks you.
You do not need to rely on the GPS though as you can instead manually enter running times and distances. Either way, it will give you a report on your progress, which includes calories burned and distance. You can also follow a set workout plan if you are unsure how to go about it.
RunKeeper is a great app for anyone trying to get into better shape. It is easy to use and suitable for all levels of activity. If your new year’s resolution is to be healthier then this is a great place to start and is recommended for everyone.
