  • Apple Watch support

    By landsin
    I bet this works great but I don’t want to take the phone with me. Are there plans to make this work on the watch independent of the iPhone. With Apple Watch 3 I’d like to leave my phone at home while I’m out exercising.
  • Multiple charges of $9.99

    By lunaruby
    The app itself is great. But every time I download with the same Apple ID to a new device I am charged the full $9.99 again. Last time it happened, I was refunded, but I had to reach out to them first. If I hadn't noticed the charge, I would have paid twice. Now it's happened with a third device and I can't help but feel this is just a company being lazy or dishonest. If you have ever redownloaded this app, you were charged again. So go back through your records and reach out to them for a refund. And you're welcome.
  • Great app

    By Wgn6044
    Awesome, a must have for active lifestyle
  • Still awesome

    By Sleepy Momma 1970
    Five years ago I used this app to get off the couch. Since that time I have run half marathons, a spartan race and even two ultra marathons. I had surgery in November and am using the app to gently get back to where I want to be. Love it.
  • Great ap!

  • Good to help get you started, doesn’t sync well with Apple Watch

    By mnmolini
    I do like this app, despite some of the workouts not functioning well (it will sometimes pause itself or doesn’t start at all... glitchy). However, today I was running the week 5, day 1 and the app on my Apple Watch was about 2 minutes behind the app on my phone. I had to stop about 5 times just to pause and start the app on my phone to get it to sync correctly with my watch. This isn’t the first time either. These two (app on phone and app on Apple Watch) do not pair up well, which really gets frustrating. It honestly ruined my entire run this morning and put me in a bad mood.
  • Had it for a while and now it’s flaking

    By MCAteach
    I loved this app when I first started with it. It used to tell me when I’m halfway done and now nothing. I checked the settings and it is still selected to do this...it also stopped the encouragement stuff. I don’t. Care about that as much but the halfway point I really do care about!
  • Perfect timer for beginners

    By Wmmathias
    After the stopping running after discharge from the army I said I would never run again. Then Father Time showed his best work. I used this app to safely get myself back to running and good cardio workouts after 20 yrs of no workouts. Follow the program, eat right and rest in between and this works. It’s a glorified smart timer that helps you achieve your personal goals.
  • Live this app

    By Elaia-girl
    This app helped me out a few years ago to go from never running to 10 5k’s, I took a break and am starting again.
