This is a great app the ads are insane. I couldn't do anything without it showing me another ad. The ads are all noisy/videos so don't ever open the app anywhere you need it to be quiet.
Moved from micoach to runtastic, there are some issues regarding the app. 1. The GPS signals gets lost a lot makes it frustrating. 2. When choosing a plan you can't choose which days you want to run, it only lets you choose how many days you run. 3. The pace is not said correctly during runs. It just repeats "current pace too high" and right after that "current pace to low". It can't be possible. 4. You can't reschedule a training plan when you miss a day. And please make it compatible with Fitsmart.
I just realized the app counts calories even when you're not moving, am on the bed mistakenly started it and am burning calories lol. In think the calories should be tracked with the distance that way it'll be close to being accurate. Because obviously you can get an app to be a 100%
Interval function is buggy and doesn't really do anything useful. Follow up: They aren't working on it very hard as it has been nearly a year and nothing has changed. But there's one other thing to note: If you pay for their premium level it will auto-renew per the terms WITHOUT ANY NOTICE. Honest companies may have auto-renew, but they send an email to alert you before the auto-renew happens so that you can cancel it if you wish. It's almost predatory to put this auto-renew clause in the terms and then not notify you. DON'T GET PREMIUM. Not only is there this auto-renew trap, but none of the additional features that come with premium are worth it (and some don't even work - like the interval function).
Why does this app occasionally send me advertising notifications even though I have notifications turned off? Spam! Also on my smartwatch, there is a near-permanent notification saying 'touch here to activate Runtastic'. Spam! I don't want that notification! If I want to open Runtastic then I will go to my list of apps and open it thankyou very much. To say that I get these annoyances with the Premium version it makes me wonder how much spam those with the free version of the app get! This spamming brings down what is otherwise a good, solid app.
Continuously bothers and annoys about giving them money for "pro" (fancy name for removing the pay wall). Not only is there a pay wall... It can only be removed by subscription, no flat fee. If all you are looking for is an app to track your runs this one will only annoy you. Calories counting is also a joke.
