Can’t believe I paid for this


I have an Apple Watch and this app. The Apple Watch app hardly ever works, and I have to restart the app on my watch about 5 times per run.

Every time the developers release an update, something else breaks. In this most recent update, the lag on the watch was reduced, but half the time it can’t detect GPS (I run outdoors in a major metro area) and the voice alerts from the “coach” stopped halfway through the run. The distance and time alerts didn’t. I had to look at my watch the whole time to see what I had to do - kind of defeating the purpose of having paid for a subscription.

I wish you would test better and wider - the concept of this app is great, but the execution is very poor. It cuts into my running experience so much that I’m considering making a free open source alternative to this app because of how poorly this performs. I know how hard it is to make full scale apps like this, and I can appreciate this is challenging, but I’ve had this for over a year now, and the app has gotten worse in that time.

Love it!


I’m not a runner, in fact, I hate running. I’ve recently realized I’m not going to lose the weight I want to if I don’t get out and run. This app helps me not only get out there but also push myself. I also enjoy the interval style training. Another issue I have always had is finding the right music to keep my energy up, so the music playlists that are already created for me to enjoy while I run are really cool. The one and only issue I have come across with this app is that it drains my battery like crazy. I have my location settings set for “while using”, and while I’m using it it drains like running water. My battery will be between 60-80% before I use it and between 20-30% after I do 34 min workout. If it wasn’t so draining on the battery the review would be five stars for sure.

Hi there! We appreciate your response and will get this checked immediately. Thanks a lot!

Great app but they need fix a few bugs


I've this app for years and I love it! But the only thing recently it's been having two kinds of issues. One It would freeze during my runs and then the app will close out, when I re open the app it I would have to start over cause it won't pick up where I left off. The Second problem which has been a long time issue is it drains the crap out of your battery life I recommend having your phone fully charge and on power saving mode when using this app I have an IPhone 5s and with power saving mode I go from 100% to 38% after using the app to do a 10k. If it weren't for theses issues I'd give it five stars!
