I have an iphone and I started using "runkeeper pro" app the beginging of this month but I was a long time "map my run" user. They both seem just as good. Whats your preferances and why? I just want to make sure I'm not missing out on anything.
I really love RunKeeper Pro. Mapmyrun is good too, but I prefer RunKeeper because the music automatically starts, and they tell you your split times!
The woods are lovely dark and deep, but I have promises to keep; and miles to go before I sleep, and miles to go before I sleep.

When I first started out I required my iphone on my runs for music, etc. I was using runkeeper pro for every run. I loved it, great stats, great program, etc. About 6 months ago I invested in a Garmin and I've been running without my iphone since then. I've never used mapmyrun so I can't speak to that, but if I didn't have my garmin anymore or just didn't have it with me for whatever reason, I would definitely use my iphone and runkeeper pro with no questions! I've heard nothing but good things about it.
