Great app. Worked out of the box and provided a very entertaining mix of tunes that definitely speeded up my (very slow) running. Caveat-registering gives you a free TRIAL: membership; after a month of use (I think) the cost is $4.99/month, 12.99/quarter, $35.99 per year. These prices are fair, but that there is a cost at all is not advertised at the time of sign up (at least I didn't see it). That being said, once my trial runs out, I most likely will sign up for the paid version.
I LOVE this app! I am not a runner...at all. I need all the motivation I can get. I downloaded the C25K app to help me get in shape for a 5k obstacle run. Rock My Run was a companion through the C25K app. The music is AWESOME!!! Another amazing feature is the ability to change the tempo of the song to match your pace. I've been recommending this to everyone. This app is great for any runner...avid and reluctant!!
I have been running for about 4 years now and I've struggled to stay motivated. I would get 130bpm mixes and after a few runs I would get so bored with them that I was spending a fortune just to stay interested in my runs. I was searching for a new means of motivation and I came across Rock My Run and it was a no brainer. I was adding not just distance to my run I was increasing or maintaining my pace just anticipating what was going to play next. I am a mash up junkie and the old school/new school mash ups are my favorite. I love how versatile I can be with rock my run and I look forward to running every day. I truly am a ROCKSTAR!!!!
This app was OK. I mean it feels mostly like a bit of a gimmick to me but i had to try it. If it was more tracker then music player i think it would be better. ATM it's not really doing either well. Jog.fm or deezer do music player and just about any other run tracker does run tracking better. So for me it's a nice idea but i wont be using in anger.
I tried it and liked it for a while, and then I moved on to other things. However, I cannot get this app to stop charging my credit card. I cannot cancel via the app because I get an error message that informs me to send an email and no one responds to the emails. I still pay the $4.99 every month. After a while, I contacted Google Play and they were able to cancel and give me a refund for the months I did not use the app.
Overall I like, but does some super annoying things that make it pretty bad. It will randomly stop playing mix and reset to beginning. This is a sure fire way to ruin a run. Also, it will reset to beginning of mix if someone calls your phone, even if you ignore it. Also, I can't figure out how to remove stations from favorites. It's buggy and simply doesn't work well. Fix these issues, and get some more mixes going, and it'll be a 4 star app. Make it to where you can download your favorites and don't have to eat data every run, that'll make it a 5 star app!
