    I love Nike+! I've heard MapMyRun is pretty good too.

    I use RunTastic. There is the occasional issue, but it's overall pretty good and it integrates with MFP :)

    MapMyRun

    It seems to do pretty well on the assortment of hills around me, too. Wasn't expecting that from a free app.

    RunKeeper - use it for any outdoor activity, golf, cycling, running, walking. I love that it lets me see a google map track - especially when hiking/exploring/hunting. Can use app on phone or log in online. Also sync's with MFP if you set it up that way.

    I just checked the online version and it says I have burned 36,257 calories since I started using it.

    Runtastic I found WAY over-calculated my distance and speed, so I got rid of that plus it had issues connecting to satelite all the time
    Nike+ I thought was pretty good until I ran my first half marathon and Nike+ calculated I ran 14.58 miles :grumble: ...now I know since it was a certified course it was going to be more than 13.15 ...but not that much more
    The reviews on MapMyRun app are not very good so I won't buy that

    Right now I am using Nike+ and then calculating the miles on the MapMyRun website...the only problem with this, is I live in a neighborhood full of cul de sacs with circles....and I get shafted because I tend to eat up all the blacktop I can when I run and mapping websites end the "road" in the middle of the circle and don't calculate if you ran around the circle :grumble:

    I will have to save my $ for a Gramin and just use that

    I used to use RunKeeper, but since I got a Garmin 310XT, I just go with Garmin Connect. Seems to be all the data I need, now if i could just get an app to make me go faster....

    I'm a beginner runner, but I like Endomondo. I bought the premium edition for the trainer tool.

    Garmin forerunner 310XT

    Its a beast of a watch but love that its actually waterproof and the huge display.

    Garmin connect has more metrics for analysis then I know what todo with....I'm a simple man.

    Right now I'm using Runkeeper, but am hoping to get a Garmin soon.
  • I'm using Map My Run - and like JTICK, hoping I get a Garmin Forerunner 10... SOON!!!!!!!
  • I use runkeeper (free), but then I'm not one for obsessing over stats and so just the basics I get from the app (time, average pace, mile splits, googlemap) is fine.

    Having said that, Santa left a Garmin forerunner 110 under the tree for me this christmas. Not had much chance to play with it yet but it seems like the garmin connect app/website has all the data and analysis tools I'd ever need.

    I use mapmyrun: they often have challenges you can join, where random names are drawn for prizes. I won a $75 gift certificate to a sports store just for doing what I would have done anyway....run!
