Ratings and Reviews
This app has really helped me get in shape. It sets out very good walk/run/jog times. A criticism is that the timing for the voice that tells you to walk/run/jog is off by a few seconds. I’d appreciate it if it told you to walk/run/jog at a more precise time.
Other than that, this app is a fantastic addition for any runner.
Thanks! Very good application. Works when display is off and plays music in background.
Great for Physical Therapy to Reintroduce Running
I love the versatility of this app! As others have said, it gives you audio notifications (as you listen to your own music) as to the next step in your running training program. It’s very similar to an app I’ve in the past with one big, amazing exception...
I broke my ankle 4 months ago and have finally been cleared by my physical therapist to start a walk-jog program as I get back into running. Each week I am supposed to increase the time I jog and decrease the time I walk, similar to any C25k program, only at a much, much slower progression. I love the fact that this app allows me to create running programs at the exact intervals recommended by my physical therapist. I can save each program and title them individually, which is both convenient and so helpful in my recovery. When I had asked my physical therapist beforehand if an app such as this existed, she said she didn’t know. I hope RunTrainer makes their app known to more physical therapy professionals so they can better support their patients.
My only negative critique, similar to what others have mentioned, is that I’m not sure how accurate the GPS/mileage is (or kilometers—they have both units of measure). When I first played around with the app, from the comfort of my own couch, it measured that I had moved 0.1 miles during that time, when clearly I hadn’t moved much at all. I’m not sure how accurate my actual jogging mileage has been without a second device to compare. This isn’t a big deal to me, as I’m just trying to start running for longer time intervals. But this may be a very big deal to other, more serious runners.
All in all, a game changer for me. Thank you!
Developer Response ,
Thank you for the kind words and we are very happy our function offers what you need, it was indeed created for these kind of situations. About the GPS, it can certainly be inaccurate inside as it will be interfered by your surroundings and WIFI. Outside it should work just fine.
Happy running and hopefully you will be back on full force quickly!
