RunKeeper for iPhone - Fitness Tracking Using iPhone's GPS


I came across this cool little application the other day on the iTunes store and thought I would pass it along. The RunKeeper icon application uses the iPhone's built in GPS tracking to record your fitness outings; runs, bike rides, hikes, etc. to measure performance. The simple interface is easy to use and grabs some nice stats; total distance, pace, time as well as showing you your speed performance in a bar graph to easily understand how you are doing. Another nice feature is that you can pause your run in the middle if you need to stop mid-workout for a phone call, stop light, or to tie a shoe. Of course since it's the iPhone, you can listen to your iTunes music as you go too.

Runs can be saved in the iPhone, but are also uploaded to the RunKeeper website, where you can log in and see your run superimposed over a Google Map. The image below is an example of the current capabilities. According to the RunKeeper website, future releases may include the ability to superimpose the run on the Google Maps right on your phone.

RunKeeper: icon is available for $9.99 at the iTunes Apps Store
