I also promised a similar capability when we released our next update to RunKeeper for Android. And now the time has come, RunKeeper is ready on Google Play, and away you can go a’launching it from your own Android apps!
To launch the RunKeeper app on Android:
- Present the user with a button in your app that they can click to launch RunKeeper.
- When the user clicks that RunKeeper button, start the RunKeeper activity using the Intent
- If the user has an up to date RunKeeper release installed, the RunKeeper app should launch and they can begin tracking immediately.
- If the user has an older copy of RunKeeper, or hasn’t installed the RunKeeper app yet, prompt them to install the latest RunKeeper release from Google Play and then they can begin tracking after installation.
We’d love to hear from you and see examples of how you will use this capability, on Android and/or iOS. Please contact us in the comments if you’re doing so.
