If one of your New Year resolutions is to get into better shape, don’t miss out on this great run tracking iPhone app that is free for a limited time. RunKeeper Pro uses your iPhone’s built in GPS to capture a whole slew of useful pedometer information about your runs and walks, including keeping track of your speed, the time spent running, calories burned, time per mile, and it’ll even automatically map your jogging routes on Google Maps and graph your progress so you can watch how your fitness is improving.

RunKeeper Pro is usually $9.99, but for the entire month of January you can download the app completely for free. You can get RunKeeper Pro from the iTunes App Store, it’s a lot like getting the Nike+ iPod Sport Kit for free, well, minus the shoes of course.

    MapMyRun does a good job too and syncs with their website. If you run with your iPhone, but careful to have an armband to prevent sweat or the elements from getting into it. And it seems like some early models of iPhone 4 can overheat easily.

    I have used a similar app and found it to miscalculate distance and speed when using stairs. I suppose the elevation is harder to track as the iPhone pings GPS satellites and it is the distance between point A and point B that is measured. This distance is perceived to be shorter than it is due to the vertical nature of stairs.
