Best way to become a runner I started out about to die doing 3, 5 & 8 min runs but today I finished a 20min run with out stopping. I highly recommend this for anyone serious about getting into running. It's never crashed on me & I don't have to worry about checking my time.. I am about to start week 6 with so much excitement. I didn't love running before but I do now..
Love/hate this app I started off with c25k and am inching my way through the 10k program now. So I love this app based on the progress it's helped me achieve and simple UI. What I don't love about this though, is that it randomly loses sync with my hrm and then creates numbers that sound great, but are way off. Emailing support was useless, so now I get to manually add all the intervals into another app that doesn't tell me that I burned 1700 calories in 30 minutes
Keeps stopping rdio I used to really love this app, but lately, not so much. I have it set to use external player. About halfway through my run, whenever it announces an interval it stops my music player.
So far so good I've really enjoyed this app so far. It has a variety of programs (in the free version) that are great. The run tracking and statistics are good to look back on and see the progression as I've made improvements. I went on and got the pro version for the C25K program and it functions the same as the other options. It also syncs up so you can view the information through their website if you choose. I find it easier to work on my PC when reviewing data so that is nice. The next step will hopefully see some way of creating custom intervals/times. I'd love to be able to do a timing interval more than 30 minutes without having to resort to open run with no intervals.
I wish they warned you against uninstalling first After I uninstalled the free version and was prompted to re-install it because the Pro version requires it to run, a message popped up telling me that the PRO version is just an unlock key. Maybe mention that in the app description page? If not for the statistics, because I had to re-download it literally seconds after uninstalling it :/ Other than that, it's a pretty good app. The GPS fix takes a while sometimes, but most times I've gotten around the annoyance by starting the app while I get ready to go out.
Best C25K It has never crashed, and it plays nicely with both Audible books and Pandora. The lady announcer tells you info and pace after each interval, and after your run you get lots of detailed visual stats too. I'm in week 5, and I'm thrilled with how far I've come. I'm actually enjoying running for the first time ever!
