The free RunKeeper app will tell you the distance you traveled while hiking, cycling or running, will tell you how many calories you burned, and more.

UPDATE, July 2013: you can now connect your RunKeeper account with MyFitnessPal.


By getting the RunKeeper app you’re getting a free software solution that will basically turn your Android or iPhone into a personal trainer. You can use the app to track your walking, running, cycling, hiking or biking, to access detailed statistics about your workouts, check out various training plans, control your music playback, set weigh loss goals, and more.

By getting the RunKeeper app you’re also joining the RunKeeper community, meaning that you will have access to the various fitness tools hosted on and you will join a community that offers support and encouragement for whatever you want to achieve – lose weight, finish a race, set a long distance personal record.

RunKeeper is available for download on the Play Store here and on the App Store here. Before you get started with the app you must create and sign into your RunKeeper account or sign in using Facebook. You will then be asked to choose an athlete type (runner, cyclist, walker, other), unit of measure (miles, kilometers), gender, your weight (in lbs or kg), and birth date. You will also be asked to answer a few fitness related questions related to how many times a week you workout, your skill level, and the goal you ultimately want to achieve.

From within the app you can set goals, track and schedule activities, view workout plans, start an activity, and more. From the website you can more efficiently track and measure your fitness activities.

The bottom line is this: if you want an app that basically turns your iPhone or Android-powered smartphone into a personal trainer, if you want to track and improve the quality of your fitness, and if you want to do it all for free, go get the RunKeeper app.
