What's New in Version 2.3
-various bug fixes
A great running app!
I tried out this app for about an hour, and it's simply one of the best running trainers I've ever seen on the iTunes store. During use, it lets you play a song album of choice from your phone, so you can listen to music while running. However, that's not all, every around 5-10 minutes, a clear, crisp voice give you recommended instructions of when you should walk and run while the music quietly plays in the background. Also, if you allow the app your location, it will tell you how much distance you have covered. It has everything you need wrapped in one free package. The only bug I have seen is it crashed once, but besides that the app is easy to navigate, simple to use, and extremely effective. I rate this five stars, no argument. Well done, Running Records!
This app is great for the 1 mile and 5k trainer, so it gets 2 stars for those.
But, the 10k program is a mess. You simply cannot rely on the timing it announces. For example, this morning it told me I was going to do a 40 minutes steady run. However, the announcement for the end of the run didnt come on until 45 minutes, BUT, the timer showed 40 minutes when I stopped it.
I've encountered many other issues in the 10k program, such as telling me I was starting my run when I was supposed to be entering the cool down period, and also showing that I wasn't even half way through a run when I was at the end of it!
These kinds of problems are ridiculous, because a developer with a stopwatch and a little patience could easily have found these kinds of bugs before it was ever published.
If you want to use it for the 1 mile or 5K, it is great, but don't bother buying the 10k. I'm going to look for another app for 1/2 marathon and longer training because this is a sad mess.
Fantastic Five Star App!
My husband and I both love to use the 5k setting to run every morning. The GPS feature is outstanding and the motivation that we get from using the personal trainer is the extra help I need to complete my daily running goals! My favorite aspect was from day one I could easily navigate the app because it's extremely user friendly! I've recommended this training tool to my friends and believe it's a key to my 5k per day success! 5 STARS!
