Runister – GPS Running Tracker App Review – Legit or Scam

The Website Was Removed in June 2018

Runister App is only available on the App Store for iOS devices. The app is for worldwide users and the company will pay you $0.07 per mile or kilometer in your own currency when you use the app. Each time you go out for a run take your smartphone with you. Set the app to track your course using the GPS tracker. During your run, the app tracks your distance, your pace and how many calories you’ve burned. The app was designed for worldwide uses and allows you to choose to record your runs using Metric or imperial measurements.

How Does it Work?

  1. You can only download and install this on an iOS device. The app is only compatible with an iPhone 5s or higher.
  2. Register with the app and fill in your personal profile.
  3. Each time you go out for a run set the app to track your course, distance, calories, and pace.
  4. The app is only valid for running or walking. It won’t record your data if you’re riding a bicycle.
  5. The app is completely free to use.
  6. When you take surveys on the app, this helps the app developers gain the funds necessary to pay you for using their app.
  7. The owners of the app have publicly stated that they are selling your survey answers to help pay people on the app. Your personal data is protected and isn’t sold; only the responses you give to the survey questions.
  8. The app does credit you 1 reward run point for every 3 survey question you answer.
  9. Answering the survey question keeps the app free for you to use. However, if you don’t want to answer the survey questions and still want to use the app, you’ll need to pay a monthly subscription. This way you can continue to use the app to earn money.
  10. You have two options to choose from inside the app. You can select to run based purely on feel or run by distance. If you run based purely on the feel you are not tied down to the app and can run when you feel like running. The other option is similar to a contract and you’ll be entered into a type of contract where you’ll run so many miles per day using the app.
  11. When you start running the app is set up for a 3-second countdown. You can easily turn this off if you don’t want to hear this all the time.
  12. During your run, the app will give you audio alerts during your run. It will alert you to each kilometer you’ve run, your time, the calories you’ve burned, and the amount of money you’ve earned.
  13. You can change the audio and language preference in the app.
  14. The app keeps track of the runs you do and it is easy to sort them out each month. This helps you to keep track of how many miles you’ve run each month.

How Does the App Pay You?

  1. You need at least $5 in your account in order to request a payout from the app. If you’re being paid in another currency the money must be equal to or greater than the $5 to be paid.
  2. You’ll need to supply the company with your PayPal email address when requesting payment.
  3. It will take 3 to 7 days to process your request and send money to your PayPal account.

What Are People Saying About the App?

  1. This is only available for iOS devices and not Android devices.
  2. You can’t link other running apps to this one. Many people want to link their other running apps to this one. The company is looking for a solution to add this feature to the app.
  3. You need to take your phone with you each time you go on a run. This really drains your phone battery and if you’re running a marathon it isn’t possible to take your phone and use this app.
  4. The app had a few minor problems in paying people for running.
  5. Some people don’t like the fact that they must take a survey to use this app for free.
  6. People are happy that this app is available worldwide and it pays in your own currency. Furthermore, the app has different languages that you can use.

Conclusion: Updated June 19, 2018

It appears that the site has closed down and is no longer paying people for their work. This is no longer a legitimate app to work for and it is advised to not upgrade your app and pay the company money. The company is not honoring their payments to people who live in the United States and has taken the app and their website offline.

Update June 6, 2018:

According to one comment on the review, Runister is no longer available in the United States and has stopped paying people for using this app. I have checked on the App Store and on the website for the company. There are no indications that the company has stopped offering this app in the US.

You’ll need to use this app with caution and be advised that if you are using the app in the US, the company may no longer pay you for using their app. As for worldwide members, it appears that the company is still paying you for using their app.

Update June 19, 2018:

The website is no longer available online and it appears that this site has scammed several other people out of their investment. I no longer recommend anyone using this app and expecting to receive any payment from this company.

How Does it Work?

  1. Either visit the website or download the app on your smartphone.
  2. Sign up with the company and pick your weight loss goal.
  3. Determine your wager. This will depend on how much you want to wager on yourself to receive the larger prize at the end of your challenge.
  4. Use the calculator on the app or on the website to calculate your winnings at the end of the challenge.
  5. You’ll need to enter your wager, how many months it will take you to lose the weight you want, and your stats. This is your current weight when you enter the challenge.
  6. The calculator will ask you what you want to wager on yourself each month, how much weight will you lose, and how long do you give yourself to lose this weight. Your initial bet, weight loss, and time frame are used to calculate your winnings at the end of the challenge.

How to Get Started:

  1. After signing up to the program, enter your weight, wager, and how long it will take, the company must verify your initial weight before you can start.

If you have 5 people sign up to lose weight and support you, the site will add an additional $80 to your prize-winning. However, the $80 isn’t for all 5 friends that sign up. The first person who signs up doesn’t earn you an extra $80 prize. The site will only add the money for the other 4 people who joined. These friends helped to increase your earning another $320.
  5. Once the company verifies your information and your starting weight the challenge begins.
  6. Each week you must do a weigh in to record your progress during the challenge.

  5. You’ll be paid through PayPal or you can request a check for your earning.
  6. Your total earning will include the amount of money you wagered on yourself and the money the company gives you for losing the weight.

Conclusion:

This is a legitimate company and they do pay you to lose weight. However, you must bet on yourself and give the company the money you’re willing to wager. The company collects your money, sets up your account and follows your challenge each week. You’re required to do a weekly weigh in and send the information to the company. The only way for you to win the prize money is by losing the amount of weight you indicated. If you fail to meet your own goals, the company won’t refund your initial wager on yourself. However, if you meet or exceed your goal, the company will pay your wager back and add to the amount of money you win.

This isn’t a shady company that collects your money and refuses to pay you in the end. The company has been around since 2009 and has appeared in the spotlight many times over. If you are serious about losing weight, then this is one way to do it. By betting on yourself, it gives you an incentive to lose the weight and gain a large prize in the end. Healthy Wage has found out that people need an incentive to challenge themselves to achieve their goals.
