Using RaceJoy for the first time during my first marathon helped me get a sub 4 minute time! I was able to hear my estimated time to finish every mile and when I heard I was under 4 hours, it motivated me to keep going! It notified me when other members of my running club had finished the race and that motivated me to get to the end to meet them. I received cheers from family that motivated me. I am not sure the GPS tracking was 100% accurate since I pushed start right when crossed the start line, but it was giving me my mile updates about 25 to 50 ft before the mile marker. Also, other members of my running club did not want to carry their phones.
I really loved having this app, and my family loved tracking me, especially at the finish line so they would know when to start looking for me. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that throughout the half marathon, the splits I got were a full 1/3 mile (consistently) ahead of the actual mile marking, so I thought I was doing better than I actually was, if the mile markers were placed correctly (which I believe they were, since it was a certified half marathon course). It did sap my phone of battery life, though. I started with 100% and by the end of the race I did not have enough battery life to take a picture of my friend, who finished after me. I don't know a way around that one.
Good. Needs an improved layout and flow. This app did what it said it would do. The race day went smoothly and everyone got to track and cheer me without any issues. My only complaint about this app is the design of the graphic user interface. It's confusing and not very user friendly. It took several tries for myself and my family to figure out how to navigate it. It needs to flow better and be more user friendly. Other than that good job on making this app because it worked and did just what it said it would do. Thanks for making it.
I used it for the first time last weekend. For me it was a little clumsy...not exceptionally intuitive, but I was able to figure it out. My husband was able to track each mile, and I was able to see my progress as well. I liked the verbal feedback on my headphones as the miles passed. It worked for me and I will use it again and recommend it.
The app worked perfectly during my race. I was able to see my time and expected finish throughout the race. It kept me focused. My husband enjoyed receiving updates and keeping track of my pace. In the end, the average pace time was very close to my Garmin's stats. I would love to be able to use this app again in future races.
Great to use This app was so helpful and allowed my friends and family to track me along the way. I would love it if all my races were loaded with this app.
