RunKeeper 4.0 for iPhone is revamped from the ground-up for the new version of Apple’s mobile platform. Just like the iOS 7, the application is made to “feel lighter and cleaner,” featuring a new start screen and few new features that address some of the problems users had with the app before:
- Started a run without a good GPS lock and had your stats mess up? By focusing on a map, you can now see where you are on a map before you start, as well as your planned route.
- Tracked a walk, then forgot to switch back “running” and had the fastest walk of all time? The activity type is now called in a number of ways to make it more obvious what you’re about to track.
- The “log” button is now much easier to find, while common activity types are added right in the menu.
In addition, extra goodies are tucked into the training plan experience to include things like yoga and strength workouts. These will now appear directly in your plan schedule on RunKeeper, and you’ll be able to track those and get credit for them the way you would any running workout…
