Popular GPS fitness-tracking app RunKeeper has boosted its Android app with support for two key Asian languages — Chinese and Korean — as it seeks to capture a larger slice of the health and fitness pie in the region.

UPDATE: Support for both languages has also arrived on RunKeeper’s iOS app.


RunKeeper has over 30 million users, more than two-thirds of whom are outside the US, which makes the introduction of new languages a natural move, particularly as the company steps further into providing personal guidance and motivation for its users.

The app has offered users training plans for a while already, and its iPhone app recently saw the introduction of a new feature that aggregates data from across the platform to personalize training plans and goals.
