Best running app?

Hiiii can anyone recommend a good running tracker/logging app? I'm more interested in keeping a log of my progression rather than a super accurate pedometer. Thanks!! o:)

    I use Runkeeper for tracking distance/calories/etc and Nike Run Club for creating a running plan. Both free and easy to use, plus Runkeeper syncs with MFP.

    Strava sometimes screws up when it tracks. They seem to be focusing mostly on the interactive stuff, like the segment comparisons and run-to-run performance.

    I use a Garmin Watch and link to Strava. I keep postings private by default and edit them to be public when it suits me. Then you can go on vacation and do a bunch of runs, turning them public after your return. This gives some peace of mind about people knowing you're away.

    I can't decide if it's worth paying for Strava premium since you get so much information from the Garmin app itself. The Strava app does let you know how you've done relative to prior workouts, which is helpful.

    I use MapMyRide. It's free and tracks my total distance, distance per mile, speed, and time. It's simple, but works.

    Garmin connect if you have a watch/tracker... Strava if you don't.

    How do you sync Runkeeper to MFP? I've been trying to find it and am having no luck. That would make things so much easier!

    Runkeeper is my favourite. I don’t try and sync it as I don’t eat my exercise calories so it doesn’t matter. I just like to see my stats and my speeds etc.

    Not sure how it works on the website, but you can find it on the app under Apps and Devices. You plug in your login info and it pulls workouts from Runkeeper.

    I use a combination of strava and run keeper.
    Strava is connected to Garmin and so tracks all my runs and activity. I like being able to see my various stats on their like how my hr is responding to pace, incline etc.
    Runkeeper I use for the training plans. I'm currently using it to try and improve my half time and go for a pr in August. Once that's over I'll probably use it to improve my 10k time (or possibly 5k but that's not a distance I really race)

    I use Runkeeper. I like it because it keeps track of all your workouts and you can see how long your ran, how far, how many calories (which is an estimate that I don't use to calculate calories burned...I find it underestimates at times), and it will tell you if you just did a run that was your 'fastest 3-5 mile run' or 'fastest 4-6 mile run'.....and as you begin to run more or faster I find that that motivates me really well when I have a good run. I always go home feeling really accomplished. I use this app in conjunction with a Polar HRM, which I use for my calories burned calculation.
