Best app for C25K, makes the job done but sadly no updates since 2014. + voice announcements tell what to do, and even when to turn around on half distance! also automatically lowers the music volume + detailed stats after the run + heart rate monitor support - doesn't handle loss of gps signal well. any underground passage leaves a dip on the pace plot - there's a webpage generated for each run. it contains a GPX download link but always returns empty file
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 phone 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.
This is the best running app have tried. I love the simple and easy to navigate menus. I have gone from a fat slob who had never been able to run a continuous mile in 29 years of living to being able to run 2 miles in a row which is crazy for me and I'm not even done with the first program yet. I cant reccomend this app enough.
I don't usually rate (or pay for) apps, but this one really stands out. Over the last fifteen years I've tried a couple times to get into running, but I hated it: fearsome shin splints after the first mile, which would then leave me in pain for the rest of the week. Now, finally, with the help of this program and this app, I actually look forward to my every-other-day jog... all for just a couple of bucks. Very pleased.
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.
