Touchy I used this app and started at week 3 since its where I'm at in the program. The first time it worked really well! However the second time, I had two phone alarms go off in the last minute of my session. The first time paused the session, nbd, but the other completely shut it off in the last 30 sec and the prgoram did not count that entire session. I just tried to use it for week 4 and it closed back to homescreen during the first three minutes in. I don't like that I can't immed go back to my place.
Get it! Everything you need, nothing you don't need. No frills timer that isn't a memory hog but will kick your butt off the couch. As others have noted, if phones falls asleep, program restarts. Simply set phone to sleep after 30 min and you're good to run. Get it! Run this! I'm fat and I'm going to run a 5k one day thanks to this program.
Notification sounds don't work. This program used to work perfectly for me, but now the notification sounds don't work. The music fades out, nothing chimes and then the music fades in. I can still use it fine, but if the chime happens to occur between songs I'll never hear it and it screws up my run. I've tried to turn up the notification sound but that doesn't work either. I use a Moto Droid running 2.2.2
Not bad Only complaint is that you can't skip a segment of the workout, for example if you had already warmed up and then opened the app.
AMAZING Got me hooked on running. Use c25K Pro for running in the background, and for verbal instructions "walk" "jog" and "cool down". Was very annoyed when it kept resetting every time I minimized it or something, so I switched to Pro. I think this one is meant for preview only, not for a prolonged usage, gets very annoying, gets in the way of exercising, but great to get you hooked!
Worked before pro This app used to have a notification sound so you would know when to switch from walking to running and vice versa. Now, whenever I listen to music it just fades out slightly then back in. I suspect the programmer did this to sell their pro version of this software that was previously non existent.
