RunKeeper is one of the most popular fitness apps on iOS or Android, and it’s now available on WP7. The app allows you to track your exercise via GPS, or manually entering the amount of time you’ve been working out. It’s a free download, and all your activities are then sent to the RunKeeper website, where you can save, edit, or share them. That’s right, if you’re particularly proud of a run you just went on, you can put it on Facebook, where the people who are addicted to exercise will scoff at what you thought was an impressive distance.
Here’s the official description:
RunKeeper uses the GPS technology found in the Windows Phone to track your fitness activity, giving you comparable results to an expensive GPS watch. The intuitive and easy-to-use interface of the app makes it easy to track how far you went, how long it took, what your pace/speed was, how many calories you burned, and the path you traveled on a map. Once your activity is completed, the data is synced to the RunKeeper website (www.runkeeper.com) where you can view a history of all of your activities, and cumulative totals of all of your vital stats. You can also share your progress with friends by posting your activities to Facebook and Twitter, and creating a profile page that allows people to view all of your public activities.
* Activity Tracking No need for an expensive, standalone fitness tracking device when you can use your Windows Phone to do the same thing. Now you can track how far you went, how long it took you, and the route you traveled right from your phone
* Personal Dashboard Store all historical activities on runkeeper.com, where you can keep track of totals and monitor your progress
* Maps integration See the exact path you traveled on a map, both on the device and on our website * Activity Sharing Share your activities with friends via email, or by posting them to your favorite social sites, including Facebook and Twitter
WP7 User says
This is a VERY poor implementation that was rushed from the iPhone to WP7. A very small sub set of the application’s features on the iPhone are in their Windows Phone version. That added to the fact that it is horribly unstable make the other options on Windows Phone 7 a lot more attractive.
