Super frustrated! Runners and apple users come in!

My run tracker apps have stopped working! Both map my run and runtastic have only been tracking while the app is open. If I lock the screen the app pauses and either doesn't track time of doesn't track distance! Super frustrating! Anyone else having issues with ios7? Anyone have an app that hasn't gotten screwed up with the update?

I'm upset cuz I ran 6 miles today (furthest I have ever run without stopping in my entire LIFE!) and I don't have an accurate measure of my time/pace! My best estimate is based off of a text message I sent around mt start time. Same thing happened yesterday on my 4 milt run. Only thing that has changed is the iOS update.

Have you updated your apps? Maybe uninstall and then install them again might work.

I had issues the first day with run keeper but now it's fine.

That sucks!! IMO runkeeper and nike+ both suck for giving accurate distances. I haven't found a good app yet.

Sometimes it takes a bit for the app developers to fix bugs caused by a different iOS.

That's what I'm hoping for! I am not running again til Tuesday am (spin class tomorrow) so I'm hoping to see some updates by then

Keep in mind that Apple often has another update shortly after a huge iOS change to fix things as well.

Run keeper always matches when I map it after.
