Just got myself an iPhone, apparently there is an app for everything so was wondering if anyone could recommend me something for running. Not looking to spend the earth here, so free or nearly free is the benchmark. I just really need some basic info, time, distance, speed, etc. Sort of thing you might get on a garmin 305 (which i have but its broken).
Is there anything out there?
Don't have one myself, but know someone who uses Runkeeper. Sounds like it does what you're asking about.
I have to agree, iPhones are not a rugged item. Leave it at home OR!!!!!
Buy one of these
I got one last year and they are super tough.
Thanks for the replies, I take the point about the iphone not being too sturdy and have recently had to fix my ipod when sweat got into it. Fortunately no long contract but I heed the warning
I use RunKeeper Pro after I ditched Nike+ RunKeeper
They have a pretty decent support forum (Forum) and there is a free version to try if you want to see what it can do. The pro version has voice cues, training packages, playlist selection and you can upload to a website which shows all your stats and can plot on a map.
Take your i-phone with you on longer training runs. I've got lost at least twice, and the map app that comes already loaded onto it got me out of trouble brillantly - it even showed me the route home if I told it where I wanted to end up!
No useful running apps, though, sorry.
Agree with all above, RunKeeper Pro is great, but you need to find a good armband. My Iphone is about 18 mths old and the problem I have is on long runs you loss a lot of battery. Hope to pick up a Garmin this month.
