Guess what? We’re launching a fresh new redesign of RunKeeper.com! Yes you’re reading that right. And feel free to do a happy dance
We created RunKeeper to be a powerful personal trainer in your pocket, but many of you look to our website to do things like drill deeper in your workout tracking, interact with friends, and connect with other partner apps. That hasn’t exactly been looking its finest for some time now, and many of you have been sure to let us know how you feel about that.
Rightfully so. There were buttons for things like routes, races, training, plans, and apps–twice, in two different places. What does that even mean? Meanwhile, cool functions like finding friends and connecting your RunKeeper account to other apps were pretty buried.
And if you were just getting started on RunKeeper, many of these pages, were, um, depressing.
Not anymore! We’ve taken the time to give RunKeeper.com the revamping it was due (especially considering the spiffy new redesigns our mobile apps got earlier this year). Now the website offers the same inviting, fun, and helpful experience that RunKeeper for iPhone and Android do (we hope!).
We’ve cleaned up the navigation on top, so the features you interact with the most are clear and easily accessible: the ‘Feed’ button will show you what your friends are up to; ‘Me’ takes you to your activity history, fitness reports, training plans, routes, and more. Click the ‘Log’ button to easily post a new workout.
For those who are new to RunKeeper, these different pages offer helpful, friendly guidance for getting up and running (pun intended) with us.
We’re not claiming this new site is a masterpiece, but it is a significant improvement over what was there before and lays the foundation for us to make it more awesome in the months to come–so stay tuned for a bunch of exciting stuff in the near future!
To accomplish some of our goals, we had to move a couple things around with this update. To help existing users adjust, we’ve set up a guide to help highlight some of the more significant changes below.
We hope you see RunKeeper.com as a helpful and fun tool for tracking your fitness journey (you friends’ too!)! Let us know what you think!
