I've been using runtastic for the past 8 months and find it to be very useful. I just upgraded from the free version to purchasing "Pro" version for 3.99 which offers some other things. You can view both on your phone and computer. Good luck !

I'm looking for a good running app for an android phone.

I'd like something that includes training too.

Runkeeper gets very good reviews. Unfortunately it's not available on Window phones.

I use RunKeeper. It is free and is pretty accurate on my iphone. You can also view your runs on the computer and if you have friends using the app, you can see what they are doing and also give them encouragement.

THE JOY OF DISCIPLINE OR THE PAIN OF REGRET. WHICH WILL IT BE TODAY?

Discipline is doing what you don''t want to do so you can do what you really want to do."

What doesn''t kill you can only make you stronger!

People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing- that's why we recommend it daily.

What do you want to do with it?

I have used "Interval Run" which I think was free for my earlier training (it has C25K, Gateway to 8K and One Hour Runner built in, but you can create your own as well) and it worked well. It lets your own music override as well so you can hear both.

I'm using SmartCoach from Runner's World right now for my training plan, and I like it too. It isn't a "while running" app, though, just the training plan.

I have no "goal weight". MY goal is to be as healthy, strong and active as I can be. This isn't about my relationship with the scale but my relationship with the world.

Does anyone know of a reliable (preferably free) running app for a Windows phone?
