I have been using Runkeeper for years. I have just upgraded my phone and have noticed a number of other running apps.... What do you all use and recommend, is there more to running apps than Runkeeper offers?

MapMyRun (the free version) works for me, but having never used Runkeeper, I can't compare. It does cover lots of forms of exercise (though I only use it for running, walking and cycling), and seems to be quite accurate, except for the odd occasion when the GPS goes completely haywire!

I have MapMyRun and find it ok but it switches itself off if I do anything else while I'm using it e.g. answer the phone or read a text. Do you find this Blue?

It could be because I have an "ancient" Iphone 4 but I've been thinking of changing so will read thread with interest.

Hey I run it on an iPhone3! Yes. If you take a call you do have to click back on to it, but it still runs in the background. I find you have to down it about once a week to get best results.

I use Endomondo which I like, but have never used Runkeeper so can't compare the two. Seems reasonably accurate and you can add friends and see their workouts too.
