Was great at first but now doesn't work. I have had this app for years and really loved it. I just had the basic no pay version. Then this yr it wasn't recording my runs. I would do the work out and in the end it said I went .4 mile when I actually ran over 5 k. I uninstalled it and re installed it an now it won't let me access anything with out giving a credit card. It is so sad they changed this. It says free trial but you still have to give your credit card and remember to cancel.

it has been very good to keep me motivated and helping me in resers stamina. At the beginning I could barely run for 3 minutes straight and now I can go for 10 minutes. I just wish that it retains your progress if the app gets accidentally deleted or I had to get a new phone. As premium subscriber, too it seems a simple thing to have. All my games can do it. My other issue is the music search. it would be nice if title search was allowed. The current state is very inefficient

Dear Stef, that's great you're improving your results and find the energy to push through. You are right, for now, unfortunately, there is no option to save the stats this way, however we'll consider adjusting it as well as making the music search more customized, thank you for the feedback 🌸 Have a wonderful day!

Unlike many other people's experience based on their reviews, I easily downloaded this and knew I wanted the subscription based on my friend's success with this app. They offered an annual subscription of $19.99 (which will auto-renew but I see no impediments going into my subscription to change that). I've not been bothered by an influx of ads with the premium version. The music is great (though I havent noticed the playlist adjusting tempo for pacing as it says it will). I need to upgrade my phone soon and have been apprehensive as many people say while the app and their subscription continues, they lose their progress. I decided to just finish my current program and upgrading as a reward! In terms of the actual workout, I have been enjoying them - getting back into running after recovering from a bad ankle sprain.

Thanks for the awesome review, Aimee! Hope you are doing well. Kindly note that the training stats won't be lost when changing an account type. However, by now there's no option to transfer logs within devices, we'll consider it adding for future updates. Our team wishes you a quick recovery and looking forward to you back on track. 🌼
