I know this is an old thread. However, I was searching for something related to RunKeeper and this post came up. I thought I'd throw in some info . . .
RunKeeper is my favorite app. Besides those built in to my Z10, like the phone, email and browser apps, I use it more than any other. Here is a little history, and how I use it:
- RunKeeper used to be available on the Amazon App Store and utilized OpenSource Maps (or whatever it's called), rather than Google Maps. I downloaded it there (free version) and it worked GREAT! This was early 2014.
- Then, Amazon App Store notified my that there was a new version of the Amazon App Store, so I upgraded. Big mistake. RunKeeper immediately stopped working correctly. After some wrangling, I was able to return to both previous versions.
- Then, RunKeeper stopped updating their App through Amazon, and went exclusive to Google Play (and started using the Google Map feature or something). This was also a disaster for two reasons: Google Play doesn't work right native to BB AND, you had to be signed in to Google Play to make it work. No bueno.
So, after a number of support conversations and some trial and error, this is what I have figured out, if you want RunKeeper to work:
- never "update" the Amazon App Store App. You can still download Amazon App Store Apps without letting it update on its own.
- don't try and download the RunKeeper app from any app store. Just find the APK file for version 3.9.1 and it will work fine. I believe that 3.9.1 was the last version that didn't require Google Play.
I have been using this version of RunKeeper for over 2 years, and it has worked just fine. (About every 20 workouts or so, I may have to shut it down and restart my phone, if it acts funny.) I prefer RunKeeper, because in addition to the functionality of the app, making edits to activities or routes at RunKeeper.com is more friendly.
