Finally an effective, accurate solution to indoor walks! I have a bunch of toys and apps that all seem to ignore deliberate stints of walking and such in a timed fashion. Even my Garmin Vivofit ignores that too. I've tried other apps, and had been using Endomondo because it would, and then they took it out. So this is awesome!
Seems to need an uninstall & reinstall regularly Update 7/2015: Since the latest update, it's working more consistently. I purchased the pro version soon after trying out the free version. I did notice the malfunction after I moved it to my sd card, so I had to reinstall & move to phone. Its working fine since then.
It just randomly stops counting steps and/or timing your exercise session. Paid for Pro and shouldn't have wasted my money. VERY frustrating. No error, it just stops. Any time you try to get information from the web site, all it seems to want to do is sign you up for 'premium' service. Going to find something that works.
U know how it is. U know how it is with these things. Most people will tell you the same.....they are fairly inaccurate. After saying that. Going on what details I have inputted I have found its not too bad. I upgraded to the pro. Liked the fact that u could Taylor most setting to your personal standard. IE step frequency settings. It's a good guide, but give it some margin for error. Using it, and keeping it .
Do your own arithmetic. This app's calculatons are incorrect. Terrible support. Counts steps fairly accurately but calculates distance traveled and speed incorrectly. (About 30% high.) I have a ticket open with Runtastic since Sept 2014 and they've done nothing about the problem. Upated to 1.6.2 just recently and the math error is still there.
Was good Worked perfectly until about a week ago and I had calibrated stride length to accurately match distance of known routes. However now the app only appears to be registering about half the steps taken and is therefore underestimating distance by about half as well. Have tried everything to fix but no success.
