Hi, I've tried Map my run, Run Keeper, Nike plus. If I go out walking with the dog I use the map my walk, on the same route as the run. I got the same route very single time but each app gives me entire different results. Yet the first three could be all on at the same time. I have entirely different calories, miles etc. it makes me easily confused which one is right :/ what do you guys have and which do you recommend.
Which app is the best?: Hi, I've tried Map my... - Couch to 5K
Try not to get hang up about comparing all the Apps that out there. For example I use Ismoothrun which is great and gives me eveything I need i.e. Cadance, pace etc etc so then I up load it to Nike+ then onto Starva ( for loading my mile for charity ) so I think it's totally up to you stick with one and go for it ....
I've had the same issue with those three apps; each one gives me very different results!
I hope we get some more replies cos I am curious about which app is "best". Apparently phone apps are not a patch on the dedicated GPS systems.eg Garmins. I have had some great PBs from Endomondo, but I'm damned if I can recreate them.
I use runkeeper as well, one day maybe I will have a Garmin, drop hints to hubby
I use Runtastic as it links to MyFitnessPal. I don't know how accurate it is distance-wise but I find it very good and if you use the same one all the time you will see how your stats improve.
I love my Garmin and on the whole it's very accurate, less than 1% out at worst. Phone apps generally are less reliable, I think it's because of the GPS in phone, rather than the aps per say, but I could be wrong.
Definitely would recommend a Garmin
