RunKeeper Fitness tracking for your iPhone 3G/3GS

The iPhone App RunKeeper is available in the Appstore.

What does RunKeeper Free?
The app features on the iPhone requires OS 3.0 or newer + GPS. you can track activities, including distance, time, speed, pace, calories burned, elevation, and path traveled on a map. In addition, all tracked lines in the history visible. The recorded tracks can also be directly on the iPhone in a map.

The first run
Today it was finally arrived, the first unit of the Training plan for beginners is denied. The iPhone I had fastened with a belt clip on my sweat pants under my sports jacket. Is maintained as in some other forums, the GPS receiver with me at my absolute top track jacket - RunKeeper says: "GPS Strength: Good."

“Fitness without jog-tracking device (iPhone + RunKeeper) makes only half as much fun!”

The app worked perfectly and has really inspired me. The only drawback is the strong battery thirst. With Wi-Fi turned off, the App has consumed about 30% percent of the GPS proud of the battery, with a short running route KM of 4.32 and a duration of 36 minutes. It is therefore on longer running distance (not a beginner workout) recommended to recharge the battery completely and turn off Wi-Fi to.
