RunKeeper hits the top of the iTunes chars.
ere’s a good example of how going free can boost a mobile startup’s profile. RunKeeper Pro, a popular fitness app that normally costs $9.99, announced its first free promotion yesterday and saw a huge spike in downloads — this morning it climbed to number six on the Apple App Store charts, passing the “lite” version of iPhone game sensation Angry Birds.
If you’re a fitness nut you need to be using Runkeeper. It’s a great app. I use it on all my rides and runs.
So far I’ve put 903 miles on my bike and 46k calories burned. :)
