I want micoach back!!! :’(((

Annoyed by commercials

Six years ago I bought my first smartphone and after trying lots of running apps I chose micoach because of the zones and the amazing free training plans. From time to time I had complaints against its ability to recognize the GPS or certain update that broke some features and went again to the store to find an alternative... but nothing replaces micoach and I came back all the time. I was so sad when we learned that Adidas was replacing it by Runtastic as the features I needed from micoach weren’t going to be supported, so I delayed as much as I could the transfer to runtastic... however last Monday micoach website started to redirect to runtastic‘ and although the mobile app is still working I decided to get transferred to avoid problems in the last minute... since then I’ve been trying to access runtastic but it says “Please verify your account” but I haven’t received any emails to do that so! And I reviewed the whole support area and there is NO way to resend that email or raise a ticket to report that... it seems that I finally have to give up and move on to a different app in the store... I’m really disappointed and sad to say goodbye micoach 😞

Good for outdoor activities, but lacks development...


Runtastic has been my goto running app for over a year (I’m still a Premium subscriber), but in that time I’ve seen very little core development. Recently there was an overhaul to the UI and, to be frank, they simply managed to make the settings more difficult to find — not very intuitive and buried deep within obscure menus.

My biggest concern has to do with the lack of development on indoor activities, specifically treadmill runs. Despite submitting feature requests to the Developers, the existing Treadmill activity is very limited. Features like Voice Coach don’t work (no Zone / heart rate feedback). There is no native iPad app and the iPhone version that can be used is awkward (stuck in portrait).

Although I’ve tried most of the big name apps, this is still the best available, IMHO. However, be aware of the development issues, not only lagging in improvements, but regular bugs that are released with updates. Incidentally, Support Requests have taken many weeks to months to be resolved when issues are discovered.

Runtastic has tremendous potential. I just think the app needs serious development to improve and maintain.

Developer Response

Hey there, thanks so much for your valuable input and feedback. We're sorry to hear you don't like the new app. We decided to introduce a more user-friendly and intuitive screen design, alllowing you to access all features from the main screen. Adjusting to change takes time – we'd be happy if you gave it another try! Thank you and have a great day, Your Runtastic Team.
