Runtastic PRO is an app that tracks your runs and other various activities to improve your performance. The app really promotes motivation, as it plays actual live cheering during your workout! You can also get audio feedback for each mile or kilometer you run or bike! I have to say that feature is my absolute favorite! It feels great to hear the encouragement as you pass each mile marker! I’m not one who actually enjoys running. It has always and will always be a tough chore for me to follow through on! When I hear Runtastic PRO tell me that I’ve ran another mile, I instantly feel proud and accomplished! I can’t even say how much it helps me. Now that I have it, I think I even need it!
Runtastic PRO offers a voice coach in five different languages! I’m working pretty hard at learning my Spanish, so I the app set to language. It totally helps me brush up! Runtastic PRO’s most useful feature is how you can create your own workout that includes intervals and target pace, as well as calories, distance and time.
As I’m sure you can tell Runtastic PRO is packed with features, and I’m not even done listing them yet! What about music? Yah, it has that, too! Runtastic PRO lets you set your own workout playlist with full music player integration! You can also choose a “powersong” that can be used to play when you’re getting tired! Runtastic PRO usually costs $4.99 to download but is currently free through AppGratis! I’d highly recommend it, even if you miss out on the freebie!
