Easy to use. Starts out at a pace that's not too easy but not too hard especially for someone like me who can walk for long periods of time but never ran for more than a minute straight. I also like that it syncs with Myfitnesspal. UPDATE: The app doesn't seem to have a constant connection to GPS so you don't get full credit for your hard work. At first I thought it was my ohone but nike and map my run kept up with the GPS perfectly. I love the simple design of this app along with the options for interval training but teleporting me on the map and giving credit for 0.5 miles when I've done 1.5 miles sucks.
I was very skeptical about being able to do the C25K training as it is detailed out, especially with the jump to running 20 mins straight in week 5 after never running more than 8 mins. I have been pleasantly surprised! The controls are very easy to use. The only time I have had issues w/ GPS is when running on a track in the local YMCA. Can switch between KM/Miles, can change how often the voice updates you on your pace (or whatever stats you choose for it to announce). I'm now at the end of week 6 and can say that the C25K program is the real deal and this app is a pretty decent app to assist with it. Having it log to MyFitnessPal automatically is also a very nice bonus.
Went for my usual run and NO ANNOUNCEMENTS except start, halfway, and cooldown. The voice had changed, too, but I don't care about that. Adversely impacted my pace because I couldn't get a sense of how I was doing! I really love this app and come back to it time and again. ETA: this happened again (may 2017). I know y'all work hard, and I keep coming back to this app every time I need to retrain after an injury (got hit by a car etc). It's hard to not get frustrated
This app is missing a feature that allows u to see the amount of time left and what rep it is somewhere in the corner of the phone like a small window (ex. The way YouTube has it). Also it doesnt work as a split screen on Samsung galaxy. Last thing, would be nice to see overview of the run program while running, ex. How many reps total and what kind. I purchased it bc it syncs with fitness pal and that's my favorite feature.
This is very user-friendly and I highly recommend this app. I was very unfit when I first started, having not run in over a year and a half. So the couch to 5k concept is perfect for me. Interval training is best when your as out of shape as I am!
This is a great app for doing C25K! Doesn't look as fancy as other options, but this one has every feature you need. Plus the upgrade is cheap and well worth it.
