INDIE BUSINESS MODEL:

Tempo is self-funded and maintained by a solo developer. Hi, that's me! I love running as much as building high-quality software. With no outside funding, no ads, no grow at any cost by selling your data, Tempo's only source of revenue is when you subscribe to premium features. Please do check out premium with a free trial. Runners find these features really effective in training well.

FOR THE LOVE OF RUNNING:

Built for runners, by a runner, Tempo started as a simple, 1-screen, side-project, and evolved into a powerful app to become a favorite of many runners. Read Tempo's story here — http://indie.sh/tempo/story

PRIVATE WITH NO ADS:

I can't emphasize this enough — Tempo is built with privacy first as a core principle. Your data is yours. I do not have or want access to it. I will never sell it, or share it with anyone. No ads, no creepy tracking.

SUBSCRIPTION INFO:

Tempo's pro features are only available with Tempo Premium subscription. If you choose to purchase Tempo Premium, subscription payment will be charged to your iTunes account. Your subscription will automatically renew unless canceled at least 24 hours before the end of the current period. Auto-renewal may be turned off at any time by going to your settings in the iTunes Store after purchase. Any unused portion of the free trial period, will be forfeited when you purchase a subscription. Subscription price may vary from country to country.

TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS:

Tempo primarily works with the Health data stored by the Workout app from Apple Watch. While it may be able to process workouts stored in the Health app by other 3rd-party apps, depending on how those apps store the data, some details may vary.

What’s New

Version 3.9.1

Quick update to fix missing splits and chart data for workouts recorded with some of the third-party apps.

--- Here's what we introduced in 3.9.0 ---

New Notes Screen:
See all your notes in one place. One of the best features of Tempo is the ability to capture training notes for every workout. Use the new Notes screen for fast and easy access to all your notes in chronological order.

Standalone Notes:
In addition to notes attached to workouts, Tempo now supports adding standalone notes to your training journal. Use standalone note entries to log general training thoughts that may not be specific to any workout sessions.

Distance Totals in Decimal:
Track your distance totals in the new decimal format on Tempo's main screen on iPhone, Apple Watch, and Widgets. Seeing fractional distances can bring motivation for a few more laps to round off those weekly, monthly, and yearly totals.

Enjoy & Stay Active!

One of the best apps I’ve ever used

As someone who is getting back into running (trained for a half marathon and over 300 miles logged in the past year), this app is MADE for runners. You are able to get so many helpful insights and stats from an individual run. And even when you want to look at cumulative stats for a given week or month, the cumulative graph and intensity calendar are awesome. You aren’t gonna find these stats in any other app, and that includes Apple’s fitness app. I also LOVE the share feature. Apple’s fitness app lets you share a completed workout, but it presents pretty barebone stats that are non customizable. Tempo lets you share your stats in the form of a customizable image (you decide what stats to show). This feature alone for me is worth it, cause it makes it so easy to share with my friends my runs without having to take a screenshot and manually crop or create something on my own. The yearly subscription is less than the cost of running socks, so if you even consider yourself a casual runner who just wants more insight GET THIS APP. Seriously you won’t regret it. As an iOS developer myself, I just wanna say kudos to the app developer. Such an unbelievably useful and well crafted app that many others could learn from. Hoping in the future that maybe we could see an iPad version but otherwise absolutely stellar ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Simple and powerful

I’ve used many running apps. Since finding Tempo I rarely use the others. It has a very simple user interface and you can quickly find what you’re looking for. I love the Intensity Calendar for a quick overview of my runs. The Cumulative Graph is the perfect way to look at your weekly mileage and see your progression throughout your training cycle. The Personal Bests is fun to look through. I also like how the data is presented as you review each workout. The developer is doing a great job with this app and is constantly adding new features. I also love that I can use the default Apple Workouts app (though you can use any app that syncs with Apple Health) to record my runs as I find that the most accurate and simplest to use. The data syncs seamlessly with Tempo. Great app!

Splits are broken, devs unresponsive

I like the idea of this app. I was really enjoying using it for a while until my new entries suddenly had broken splits. There would only be 2 splits for a run. The 1st mile and then the rest of the run would be lumped together as one big split. Completely useless data at that point. The splits are correct in the data source and correct in Apple Fitness, only in Tempo are they broken. I reached out to the devs at their published support email and got no response. I had paid for a year of premium but I cancelled after realizing the data is suspect and the devs won't troubleshoot issues. I would look very carefully before spending any money and ensure that the data is correct for your workouts.

update: after tweeting at the developer I did receive a response. The developer tried hard to solve the problem but unfortunately a solution was never found. I really wish I could use this app as I quite like it, but I just can't get around this issue.

Developer Response ,

Hi, apologies for not responding to your email. This issue can happen when you record your workouts with an app other than the Workout app on your Apple Watch. Tempo reads the data from the Health app, but third-party apps' data could be in a non-standard format, sparse, or completely missing. The recent update (Tempo 3.9.0) made a few changes to support one of such third-party app's data (slightly) better. If you are still up for it, please give it a try. You can reach me directly on rahul@indie.sh. Thank you.
