  • Turn-by-turn: Far from perfect

    By djeverson21
    I appreciate that this app allows me to map out new routes on my phone, unlike Runkeeper. The turn-by-turn directions for those routes, however, are far from perfect. I often end up “off route” even when I have been trying follow the app’s audio prompts. Then I have to pause, unlock my phone, and look at the map to see how to get back to the route. At some point, the app will start saying, “Off route. Rejoining route in ___ miles.” But the number of miles is way off, rendering the audio alert useless. Another problem is a lack of precision — or perhaps it is over-precision — in the turn-by-turn directions. For example, if I need to turn right, the app will often tell me to turn left, and then a few seconds later, it will tell me to turn around. I end up going the correct way, I suppose, but it is confusing for me and for others around me.
  • Not really free

    I got the app to help navigate me on a long run in an unfamiliar city. First of all, it got confused about my location and started giving me wrong directions, so that didn't help. Second, when I finished, I couldn't even view all of my splits without paying for a subscription! Just stick with Strava...
  • App keeps dying on runs

    By SWP110
    Almost as soon as I put phone in my pocket.
  • Great idea, it will get better

    I’ve been a RunGo user for sometime. It has flaws, but overall I’m usually pretty happy. I dislike that it tells me to turn on S Pine instead of South Pine. I also dislike how precise you need to be in your map making. Sometimes on a corner it will mark a left then turn you around. If you don’t follow that slight left you’ll be “off route” and the watch has a hard time catching up. Most of the times I’m trying a new route in a familiar area, but if not I try really hard to study street names for this reason. Overall I am happy with the app and it features like seeing the map while on the run, but it has flaws which I’m sure will evaporate over time.
  • Great for running abroad and updates activity app

    By dunk456
    I created a custom route before going overseas, then uploaded to the apple watch. I had no cell data service on my phone or watch while abroad so couldn't navigate with a map but it worked great, telling me when I went off the route and also tracked my extra lap. The data automatically added to the Activity app, so didn't need to run the workout app in parallel. my only gripe was the splits show in the rungo app but are not transferred to the activity app, but its still the best running app i've tried

    Used it once and immediately bought a lifetime license. I needed an app that 1. Can record a run with my watch only, I don’t want to carry a phone. 2. Can sync with Apples built in app so my fiancée can’t beat my win streak. 3. Has a web app that allows be to plan routes on a desktop. 4. Most importantly.... looking at you Strava... I want a perpetual license, none of this subscription BS RunGo checks all my boxes. I have no complaints. Turn by turn prompts are dead on, and there’s a cool route overview screen that works surprisingly well on the watch. The only thing I’m unclear about is if the live option works on a newer watch with a SIM card. I don’t have one yet so it doesn’t matter, yet.
  • Turtle aid!!

    By rlamb57
    Slow runner and used to panic when I couldn’t see my group. Not anymore!! Absolutely love this app.
  • Improvement needed

    By Stepheng67
    I love the app when it works. I like getting notifications every 1/4 mile, but this works very intermittently.
  • Turned Pathetic

    By TheKevinSr
    This app used to be great and reliable until about 4 weeks ago. Now you can’t create routes on laptops after making one route point after starting, and once you create a route on the app you can’t save it.
  • Fast and light

    By tim75
    This is my go to running app. It loads quickly has a simple and clean user interface and just works. I don’t use the killer feature of this app, turn by turn directions, but it’s still a great app. Please integrate steps counting for us walkers!
