✔ Plays nicely with other apps, including your built-in music player, or apps like Spotify and Rdio.
✔ Runs in the background, and will keep on going with your phone locked.

Get Running also:

I bought this app several years ago, and go back to it at least once a year. It always gets me back to where I consider myself a runner, before a busy life and my actual hatred of running take over and I stop again. Had never had an issue with the prompts until I got a Samsung Galaxy. Now they are about a minute and a half late each time. I only know they are late once I have passed certain physical markers that usually accompany the changes.

This was a great app but sadly since going back to it there it's clear there is a serious flaw with vocal prompts not coming through when they should. This can mean you don't know when to start or stop running. Hopefully this is fixed but for now I will have to use an alternative app. UPDATE: bumping this to a 5 as I've resolved the issue via the battery optimisation settings. This is still the best couch to 5K app as far as I'm concerned and has successfully got me back into running again.

EDIT: If you're having problem with vocal prompt not occuring when it should, I figured out that it's due to the phone's battery optimisation. It's most likely optimising the app by default, you have to edit your phone's battery settings to make sure this app is de-selected from battery optimisation. This will prevent the phone from putting the app to sleep when the screen is locked.
