Buggy: Doesn’t work on Apple Watch
vilijou on 2021-01-25
The app is great at getting you to run. However, it only worked on the Apple Watch the first time I used it. When I open the app on my watch, it just says “Start workout from iPhone app”, except nothing happens when i turn on the workout on my phone. I tried uninstalling it on my phone and removing it from the watch. That didn’t work. It’s a shame since I paid for this app specifically because it said it would sync with my watch. Also, another downside is that it doesn’t sync with Apple Health or the Fitness app, like some other apps do.
Great for stress/anger management

Let’s face it… 2020 has sucked for a lot of people in a lot of ways, and I am no exception. By the end of the year, however, I decided to stop using unhealthy coping mechanisms to deal with it. A couple of friends recommended this app, and while I’ve never liked running and I still don’t like it, I try never to miss a workout. I am always calmer afterwards, and the app’s workouts don’t give you more than you can handle. Also, the reward badges are hilarious. I like the variety of trainers, but I always run with Constance—just my speed.
Not good for Apple Watch

I got this thinking it worked on the watch. However, you have to have your phone with you which sort of defeats the purpose of the watch. It also has a bug where when the coaching comes on, the volume of your music changes. If you change it Mack, the next time coaching comes on it blasts out your ear drums. If you’re looking for a couch to 5k for your watch that you can use without your phone, I ended up getting Intervals Pro and just programming in the run/walk times for each workout myself.
Having to redownload a lot....
StinaBean0407 on 2021-01-25
I just downloaded the app three days ago. And so far I love the workout, HOWEVER after the first use of the app, the next time I tried using it I had to delete and redownload because it would never open up and would kick me out at the beginning of the warm up page. I just used it again for the second time... got out of it after the session... tried to get back into it minutes later and again it won’t open. Had to delete and redownload AGAIN. Not sure if it is my phone or the app.
It works!

I can’t even say enough how great this app is! I was very doubtful whether this would have me running a 5K without dying because I haven’t been in shape in years and could barely jog 0.05 miles without hyperventilating! I’m now comfortably running 2.5 miles and walking the rest as warm up and cool down. Wishing for a 10K option!
Great program
