    By Valsgotthis
    Perfect for this sedentary lady. I’ve been able to get back into running without injury. The reminders are helpful too!
  • Great app

    Easy to use straightforward and informative for the price. I use it and the 10K app.
  • Great Running App!

    By Schoemannator
    Great choice for those just starting out AND looking to maintain a running routine! Glad they implemented GPS route tracking and the iTunes integration is well done. I’ve had ups and downs with my running habits and this app has been a good resource for getting back into running and keeping it up. Thanks!
  • Watch compatibility doesn’t work well

    By PollyED1981
    Maybe I am missing something but why is it that this app will not work with my watch. It will come up and show the running time but I cannot be away from my phone- it stops working. I have a watch with cellular connectivity so you would think it would work. This is really frustrating because other apps like MapMYRun work just fine and track GPS even. Will you ever have this working so I can escape my phone?

    Trained me so well after having a baby. I’m losing the weight I want to lose.
  • Week 7

    By jcat52643
    I’m on week 7 now so I feel comfortable rating this app. I do enjoy using it and even though I’m not up to running a 5k yet I do not doubt that I will get there. I like the GPS tracking and end of run stats but I do wish there were some things different. 1) Does not allow you to input distance when running on the treadmill so it makes tracking runs on rainy days more difficult; 2) sometimes the prompts do not sound when the lock screen is on even though the timer is still counting down; 3) Apple Watch must be within a certain distance from the phone so you cannot leave you phone at home; 4) Does not carve out warm up and cool down stats but would be nice to get a better idea for pacing. I am considering purchasing the 10K app but I’m not crazy about the subscription fees.
  • Great App!!

    By CookieCase
    I’ve really enjoy using this app.
  • Good app

    By Super M64
    Takes you little at a time to 5K like runners say it should be done
  • The solution to my inactivity!

    By lisahawaii50
    Why didn’t I find this years ago!! Worth every cent. Easy to use, motivation is not cheesy. I am confident I’ll get my fitness back on track with this program. And maybe when get to a new level after 15 years of inactivity and serious weight gain.
