RunKeeper receives a major update, right on time for those New Year fitness resolutions

RunKeeper receives a major update, right on time for those New Year fitness resolutionsRunKeeper, the hugely popular personal training and fitness tracking app has received a major update. The timing couldn't be any better, straight after the holiday periods antics of over eating and drinking and the time when those New Year resolutions of weight loss and getting fit start to become a reality.

A brand new RunKeeper just in time for the new year! With this version, we've completely redesigned the app to tie everything together into a fresh, easy-to-use, and fun experience.

  • Add an end of activity photo and share your glory with friends
  • Sign up for RunKeeper's Elite membership right from the app
  • Broadcast your activities live right from the start screen (requires Elite)
  • Tracking accuracy improvements for iOS6
  • Tons of stability, performance and usability improvements

If you haven’t come across the RunKeeper app before, it is certainly worth checking out. The app is a free download and lets you track your runs, walks, bike rides, hikes, and more using the GPS in your iPhone. The app also offers an Elite service which is a paid for extra for $4.99 a month or $19.99 a year. The Elite membership offers more features than the free version such as the ability to stream a live broadcast of your activities so your friends can see your progress in real time.

If you are looking for an app to help you get fit in 2013, you should really check out the new improved version of RunKeeper. I put on quite a few pounds over the holiday period so I have RunKeeper all set and ready to go. Hopefully I will be able to burn off those unwanted pounds sooner rather than later; I bet that losing them is nowhere near as much fun as gaining them.
