Easy 5K 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 a beginner or a seasoned runner, Easy 5K has the perfect program for you. Your pace and Run-Walk-Run ratio of each workout is customized to your ability, plus Easy 5K 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 5K adjusts your workout — and your music — on the fly.
Easy 5K includes FREE 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 5K will track your results.
(GPS available on iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S, and 5)

What's New in Version 1.7.1
Fixed a completion display problem when skipping ahead during a run.
Also general performance enhancements for longer runs.
This app (5k) is great for beginning or slower runners. I am a Jeff Galloway devotee, but this app would be helpful for anyone who wants to use the run/walk method.
What I like is the ability to tailor the pace to your needs. I also like how you can switch between treadmill & outdoor running. Plus it's good to be able to swap weeks and runs, and redo a run as many times as you like.
What I REALLY like is how you can use your own music and the app speeds it up or slows it down to match the interval.
And then there is the huge bonus of Jeff Galloway's coaching. I had been running with a group & this app gives me better information and motivation than I ever got from the group coach. Those of us who are slow are often left in the dust. But no more - I feel like I'm getting actual useful information that I can use in every run.
This 12:00 (with a goal of 11:00) pacer gives 👍👍👍👍👍
Nice in theory, not in practice
I really like what this app tries to do - I like that it has a beginner feature and an "improve my time" feature. However, the paces that are recommended based on my stats are simply absurd. I've run a few 5ks. My best race pace was 11:23 min/mile so I put 12:00 into the app as my last 5k pace, to be conservative. I'd like to get down to 10 min/mile so that is my target 5k pace in the app. So based in these settings, for my first workout, which is supposed to be an "easy 20 min jog to get you started," the default pace is 6.4 mph or 9:22 min/mile!!! Are they crazy? I don't know if the app is broken or the programmers are out of their minds. But how is that a realistic pace with the stats I entered? I ran 5 minutes at that pace and had to slow down to 5.2 mph for the rest of my run just to avoid walking. Really annoying. Unless they fix the pacing, I won't be using the app. What's the purpose? I could just write down a plan from a magazine and wing it on the paces if they are not going to provide proper coaching. Boo on this one. 👎
Best 5K App!
The guys at lolo got me running again with their BeatBurn apps and they helped me lose - and keep off - 35 pounds. I started trying other running apps to mix it up a bit and push myself but I always come back to lolo. It's just a different experience. No one else allows you to customize your workouts like this. All the Couch to 5K apps are exactly the same, no matter who your are or what you can do. And no one else matches your music to your pace. I can't put into words how much better it makes each workout. I can't thank them enough for the terrific apps they put out. They have changed my life and I will keep buying any thing else they release.
