What's New in Version 2.0.2
We have been listening to your feedback and we have redesigned the app with a focus on simplicity and ease of use.
This update is a complete redesign of the app and therefore your existing saved data will not transferred when updating the app. You will however have complete flexibility to start from any point in the programme, and continue from where you left off. So if you are already part way through the nine week journey you don’t need to start again.
The improvements are far reaching and include:
Overall improved usability and app performance
Fixes to known bug issues and crashes
Manage your music outside of the app via your preferred music player
Better integration between your music and your trainer, as volume automatically 'dips' when your trainer speaks
Auto-saves your run on completion
Reach and activate key milestones throughout the programme as you progress
Absolutely love this app. I've run for many years but fractured my metatarsal in January and have been struggling with pain ever since. I have recently started to build up to running again and with help from Michael Johnson I have been improving and starting to gradually put load through my foot again. Currently on week five and getting stronger each week. No issues with the app at all, works perfectly every time. Thank you.
SO much better than the last version. Yes the voices are a bit loud. But it's easier to use, the bugs have been fixed, and it's rightly scrapped the attempt to have a built-in music player - your music just plays in the background and goes quiet during the announcements. In short: it works, and it's a good app for getting you off the couch and running.
Only truly free C25k app there is
The same principle as any of the other apps- slowly building up through interval training.
I love the voice coach options- especially the lovely Sarah Millican!
It's the only completely free C25k app there is. No in app purchases, the other apps I tried made you pay after week 3- this one is completely free.
