iPhone running apps 2013 (Read 161 times)

    I did some googling, and this is what I believe to be true:

    1. Runmeter & runkeeper cannot be used with a Blackberry.
    2. The reason runtastic reports different mileage than a garmin is due to the software algorithm & not the hardware.
    3. The most suggested Blackberry running app is Endomondo.

    I downloaded Endomondo yesterday, ran with it, and was happy with the result. It reported the same mileage my old, broken, garmin used to report for a four mile course I have done many times.

     

    I have an employer provided Blackberry. I downloaded the RunTastic, but am dissappointed. It reports I have gone a little over 1.08 miles, when my old garmin 305, which died, reported a more accurate one mile.   Do you think that is a problem with RunTastic or the phone?

     

    A search of RunningAhead shows these options, which I plan to check out:
     Handy Runner (though hasn't been updated since 2010, and seems to have become unstable)
     Runmeter
     Runkeeper
     Member mwalker7 posted in 'technical support' about creating an app. Anyone know the status of that project?  http://www.runningahead.com/forums/post/b040e1744c064b1484f42d1536f2e81b#focus
