Easy Half Marathon dynamically changes the beat of YOUR music to perfectly match your pace. Research shows that music distracts the brain during exercise and faster music causes people to accept and even prefer a greater degree of effort. This means you will work harder without trying (or without even feeling the difference), you will get better results from the increased effort, and most importantly, the time will fly by. You can also download 15 tracks of high-energy fitness music for FREE to really get your playlist pumping.
DESIGNED AROUND YOU
Whether you're looking to complete your first race or you want to improve your half marathon time, Easy Half Marathon has the perfect program for you. Your pace and Run-Walk-Run ratio of each workout is customized to your ability, plus Easy Half Marathon gives you complete control as you move through your workout. Turn the intensity down a bit when you're struggling or crank it up when you're ready for more, and Easy Half Marathon adjusts your workout — and your music — on the fly.
Easy Half Marathon includes GPS tracking* so you can see your pace and the distance covered during your workouts. GPS works best outside with a clear view of the sky. When you want to work indoors on a track or on a treadmill, use your beat-synced music to set your pace, and Easy Half Marathon will track your results.

Music and coaching issues
Overall I love this app. It has helped me finish my first half and well on my way to second. The only drawbacks are a minor one and a semi major one. The minor one is the Verbal Coaching can be woefully misfiled or inappropriate. For example getting coaching that clearly belongs at the end of a run at the beginning or running coaching during warm-up or cool down. The semi major issue has nothing to do with training but rather with how the app itself works. If you add a song from your library and remove it and it plays during workout the music just stops instead of skipping the missing song. Along these lines is that if you remove a song or restore phone from backup and then reload your music, the app cannot find the song. Overall building and using playlists is the weakest part of the app. Generally this is a fantastic training app.
Great app but one drawback
I have enjoyed this app after going through a running slump after completing an ultra relay. Jeff's method is new to me, so I am excited to see how my next race goes. My only complaint is that not all of my music from my iTunes running playlist sync'd with the app. If I want to run with my actual iTunes playlist, I have to carry my phone and keep the screen unlocked in order for the app to work (very unfeasible). I wish that worked better. Some days I don't run with the app because I get tired of listening to the same few songs over and over.
Great App for running Practice
Having run alot earlier I started running again after a break of 10 years and 10 kg...
The features run and walk with synchronized music pace has been fantastic. My knees have not started to ache and its worked with 3 runs + 1 walk per week for the last year with both 26.2 and 13.1 mile programs.
The possibility to adjust music level separately from coaching voice level is very good.
The team has improved on the GPS tracking and provided lots of support when asked.
