Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
***iOS 7&8 GPS Tracking Update***
Many applications are experiencing GPS issues with iOS 7&8. Within Settings, there is a new feature called, "Background App Refresh". This must be enabled for an app to continue to run while in the background. To ensure your GPS works properly go to Settings -> General -> Background App Refresh, and move the switch next to the 5K to 10K app to the on position.

Barely worth writing a review on...
No voice prompts unless you keep your phone on throughout the duration of the workout. So. You're gonna lose a WHOLE lotta battery life.
Even then the voice is soooo soft I can barely hear it. In fact, I can't say I can hear her at all. After that, the music comes back BLARING. So in order to use this app: no music can be played and the screen stays on the entire time. (YES, I followed the instructions to a T on how to make the voice prompts work)
Doesn't keep track of my workouts. Says I've only completed the first day. So each time I log into app I have to figure out which week/day I'm on. Seriously. The app doesn't keep track.
Basically- I open the app to see what I have to do, and then try to do it on my own because the app plays no role at all. And on days with tempo runs/intervals...that just doesn't work.
I'm getting a different app. One that works. I successfully completed the C25K app called 'get running' and LOVED it. But they don't have a 10k version
This one will be deleted after I complete my review. Don't wast your time.
Amazing running app!
I started running earlier this year with a 5k app, and after a few months at that distance, I decided I was ready for 10k. This app has helped so much. Unlike other apps, its workouts are designed to very gradually increase your distance and pace by using two short runs and one long run each week. It even includes recovery weeks! More so than other apps I've used, this is like having your own personal running coach. I love it!
Good, but missing a few features couch to 5k has
I am definitely a fan of this app, but would like to see a couple of the features C25K has such as the option to give a buddy comments and or a high five and my app isn't keeping track of specific dates. I am about halfway through this program and haven't struggled, but definitely feel progress. It it a fantastic plan and I am very grateful I downloaded it.
