When I run I always use my phone track time and distance. I have found that runkeeper is the best free running app on the iPhone. I could go on and on about the features like start up a playlist on start from your ipod or giving you turn by turn on your preconfigured routes or integration with foursquare or audio alerts of pace, distance and total time but i won’t. The lastest and greatest thing from Runkeeper is there Health Graph API. This will allow other apps to integrate with runkeeper to make it even more awesome. This has only been out for a few weeks and we already have an amazing app. Earndit.com, it ties in with runkeeper and gives you points for working out. I signed up for it and after this mornings run I got an email from them.
Hiya Michael F.
We have found some new activities that earned you points.
– Running Activity (31 pts)
Head on over to earndit.com to check out all the great rewards you can spend your points on.
31 points for 3.1 miles!!!! I thought to my self, “self, That sounds like alot of points just for running. I bet the points I bet its like 1000 points for anything cool.” So when checking out the rewards I was surprised at how little points were needed to get stuff. $10 credit to TheClymb 100 points for new members. Thats 10 miles for 10 dollars. $20 Manpacks Credit for 300 points. I don’t know what manpacks is but I will take a 20 dollars credit for anything that has that manly of a name. Ok the rewards are not the greatest but it does feel nice to get rewarded for something I enjoy doing and do all of the time anyways.
