This app is awesome! I wanted a free couch to 5K timer app just so I can run and not worry about my time or to look at my phone. For a free app this has it all! 5 and 10k running plans, indoor running mode, only one ad per exercise, GPS outdoor mode, built in music player, use of a music app you have on your phone, screen lock, keep your screen from going to sleep, and SO MANY MORE! Very easy to use, even my kids use it!!!

I love all the stats it gives you at the end: distance, speed, elevation changes, etc. The biggest problem is that the app doesn't have a "don't sleep" toggle like other apps, and my phone's only sleep settings are 10 min max so I have to fiddle with it a few times during the workout or it'll close the app and lose all your day's progress. It also doesn't have an option to extend the workout if you end up walking longer than the 28 minutes. The voice is pretty robotic but that's OK.

Hi Karen ! The app has, in training settings, one option to avoid enter in sleep mode. Just select "keep screen on". Anyway, you must turn off energy saver mode in your phone and be sure that the app is not in the battery optimization list. Doing this, you will solve the issue with app close when running in the background. Best regards.

Good app. All of the features I want in a running app except for two things. I have to use a different media player (which is fine) because this app doesn't give any ability to make a playlist (just plays all music on the phone). Second issue is the only reason I might switch apps and that is that they don't give a pace/speed breakdown in chunks to see how the run went. Only available data is average plus max speed/pace.
