Terrible app - inaccurate and zero support

The GPS, despite using my iPhone’s GPS, does not kick in until over 1/4 of my run. It often fails to give verbal prompts to walk or run, which means I have to constantly watch my phone screen. It will randomly stop playing my music and won’t restart. I tried emailing support from within the app and my email was bounced back as undeliverable. Essentially there is zero support. Unfortunately, before I knew of these problems I talked my wife into buying this app and she has the same problems. Waste of money- try a different app.

App works well and even works while using another running app I like. Only have 4 stars because I’m only 1 week into it and I don’t know if it’s going to get me 5K ready right now but I am enjoying it :)

Nice but Annoying

I love the app while I’m running it’s good motivation and great pace and logging. However it requires notifications to be on in order to work properly. Which is fine while I’m running but it is frustrating that the red dot for notification is always on. I’ve opened every single portion of the app and can’t get the notification dot to go away. So I have to turn off notifications after I’m done using the app every single time

Best App Ever!

I hated running and the trainer at the gym suggested this app to ease me into it! I’m still not awesome, but I’m working hard! I’ve re-run some exercises and started over after having a baby. This app is perfect for the reluctant runner or just improving cardio endurance! I love it!

I used to love this app but lately it’s been freezing and/or crashing all together...losing all running data for that day’s run. A shame since you pay for the app

Great app for those wanting to get into running.

Before I bought the app, I was at the beginning of a huge weight loss journey. I’ve always wanted to be a runner but being severely overweight made that difficult. Over the course of the year I shed around 40lbs and bought the app to start. Now at the beginning, I could already run a mile nonstop but it was still a bit difficult. The training program starts off pretty slow but it picks up around week 4-5. I was able to finish the program in the 9 weeks and am currently running 3 5ks a week. The run is honestly one of the highlights of my day. Since using this app, I have lost another 30lbs. If you want to get into running, I recommend this app. Pros: As far as features go, I love that there are different “trainers” you can choose from. Granted they are only really helpful during the beginning of the program. The design of the app is really nice. I like being able to go back and compare my runs to one another and the GPS tracking is very accurate. Cons: I mentioned that the gps was very accurate but have noticed one thing. I also wear a FitBit Charge 2 when I run and use the run tracker alongside the C25K app so I don’t have pull my phone out to see what my distance is. However when I finish my run, my distance ran is always different on the C25K app and the FitBit. So I’m not sure which one is off but they are both close enough to where it isn’t a huge deal ( within .15 of a mile). I had one instance where on a run, my phone paused my run for no apparent reason. When I hit 35 minutes, I looked at my phone and the workout was paused saying I had only ran .08 miles. It’s only happened once though so maybe it was just a misclick on my end. Overall, this is one of the best apps I have ever bought and definitely my favorite as it has gotten me into a new hobby. If you want to get into running or you’re just looking to get into better shape, this app is definitely worth the money. 10/10.
