Love it I recently did a half marathon and was jogging next to these ladies who had their phone talking to them saying rest workout. every time they ran I ran, every time they stopped I stopped. I finally asked them what they were listening to and they told me about this app. Today was my first time trying it and I absolutely love it I have gained 2 minutes on my time and had an average pace of 9.1 mph my normal average speed was 5.0 to 6.0. This actually forced me to run farther in harder. Thank you
Very simple and looks great There are tons of workout apps in the market but this one is great because it performs one thing very well: custom interval timing. You can set the "preparation", workout, and rest times as well as the number of repetitions and sets. Since I'm running, I just kept the repetition to 1 and sets to however many times I want to repeat the HIIT. Most importantly, this app LOOKS GOOD. It's very aesthetically appealing and very easy to understand and navigate.
Lacking in Functionality The interface is cool, the verbal cues are good. What I didn't like was not having the ability to add more than 20 sets. My reason is this. When you do more than one repetition the timer includes the warmup segment. I'm run/walk training. I do 5 minute warm up and at least 30 minutes of exercise. I set my timer warmup to 5 minutes and set my run/walk intervals. But I am limited to 20 sets, totaling 25 minutes. Why the limit? It almost makes the timer useless for me.
Just what I needed! Couldn't have been better if I made it myself. So easy to use you don't even need instructions. The visual element of the counter is a brilliant idea, as it lets you know at a glance how long you have to go without having to read any pesky numbers while you have sweat in your eyes! This app has really improved my workouts.
Simple timer with problems Multiple times the alerts were late (I.e didn't alert about rest after half way through prepare phase) during device display off. It'd be better if app used media sound instead of calling sound, as I often leave the phone in silent. I enjoyed the simple design but the phase skipping is a huge turn-off for this app.
Love it but a little glitch and a suggestion Really love the app. Like the big display and the circular easy to understand circular graphic. One suggestion though, it would be great if the sets could be more than 20. The glitch on my LG G3 phone is that every time I use the app, the touch feedback is turned on to max although I always had it at off. So I have to reset the setting again after each use. Update: After almost a year, changed my phone to G4. Still the same glitch after using the app.
