Was this app once free and made by Redrock? I loved and used it for over a year and now that I’m working out again it’s no longer available and there’s no free option
Love the app but 😡 2/5
I downloaded this app for my Apple Watch for the freedom of it. I love what it has to offer, but 8/10 times it crashes before the workout is over and my data is lost, especially if i get a call/text. So, 5 stars for sure if i could just make it through a workout!
DO NOT PAY FOR THIS! 1/5
I never leave reviews. This may be my first. I actually like the app, the problem is how unbelievably deceitful the pricing is. According to the plan subscriptions, $40 is the annual fee. Which would be nice. I’d be willing to pay that for a year of this app. The problem is that’s the recurring monthly payment for a year! $40 a month for a glorified stopwatch! Don’t do it folks. Oh and yeah yeah, I know—but there are meal plans. The meals are impossible and require a million ingredients and take an eternity to make. Not worth it. At all. I learned my lesson, hopefully I saved somebody else the headache.
Like it 5/5
Great little app to get you going without overdoing it and ruining your taste for running!
So since the newest update, if you’ve previously tried the upgraded (pay) version, you no longer can access the free version. When I emailed the developer, they said I could buy the 99 cent pay version and then cancel it before the month was up. No, I don’t like the paid version I got nothing more from it when I tried it than I did the free version. The pay version, in my opinion, was not worth the money.
So now I can’t access the app without paying 99 cents after I’ve already had a trial version of the paid app and even paid for the upgraded version for about two months.
I’ll be looking for another running app now.
SCAM!!!!!!! Impossible to cancel account once you start the free trial!!!! 1/5
My wife downloaded this app and began the free trial. Well like the title of this review says, once you start the free trial it is impossible to cancel the membership!!!! The developer of this app for some reason requires you to be a resident and or citizen of Europe to be able to manage the account. Verv actually wants you to take a picture of your European documentation as proof that you are a European citizen. WELL SORRY BUT I LIVE IN THE UNITED STATES!!!!!!! My wife has requested to cancel the account at least five times. The first being BEFORE the free trial ended. Well after being charged 9.99 for the past FOUR months. We are disputing the charges off of our credit card and ,we are heading to apple to see how they can justify an app that cannot be managed from the USA. The developers website has no contact information of any sort and all emails that she has sent to them have received no response. So beware once you start paying these scam artist you’ll have to do a lot of running around to be able to stop. Unless you live in Europe.
I was able to cancel the membership through the subscription settings in apple itunes. Still haven’t heard from Verv though. So now I’m working on getting my money back.
In response to your response. My wife has checked the tab that says my tickets and there is nothing there. So you have not yet responded to her claim, and even if you had responded. I’ll repeat the fact that we live in the United States of America. We are citizens and residents of the United States. We do not have a European Id to send to you, and we can not obtain one cause we are not moving to the other side of the planet just to cancel out a subscription which we have put over five request in for cancellation. Yes your in app purchase banners do have information about subscription auto renewal unless canceled. But please kindly note. I HAVE PUT IN FIVE REQUEST FOR CANCELATION, THE FIRST ONE BEING BEFORE THE TRIAL PERIOD ENDED AND YOU PEOPLE ARE STICKING LL CHARGING ME 9.99 A MONTH. Your banners say that the subscription needs to be canceled, but there is no way to cancel it. So if the Verv is truly sorry for my inconvenience. Then please refund the money which you people have blatantly stolen and stop selling in app subscriptions which are impossible to cancel.
Keeps shutting off 1/5
The app keeps shutting off in the beggining when im trying to input my age. I was really looking forward to trying it out, hopefully it gets updated!
Won’t even let you cancel it. Tells you to go to account settings and the option isn’t even available
Entrenamientos para rebajar 5/5
By lucy 214
It's amazing 5/5
I've lost about 30 pounds and I'm about half way through the program. Hard work really pays off. This app conditioned me from 2 mile runs to 5 mile runs. Truly fantastic
Great App 5/5
I am glad I downloaded this App. I am a beginner and this App truly keeps a good pace through the workouts. I also love the reminders for water intake and meal suggestion, snacks and recipes 💕🏃♀️
Not what I thought it would be 2/5
Wishing I would have tried it before buying the premium. This isn’t going to work for me because I don’t run for more than 20-30 minutes due to joint issues. I wanted something that would mimic the coaching at Orangetheory but the only “classes” that are 30 minutes are in either the 5K training or the “start running” programs. There’s way too much walking in the beginner classes and not enough interval running in the 5K classes. The intervals in the longer (intermediate and advanced) classes aren’t great either. I like to keep my jogging at one-two minute intervals and longer (2-3 minute) intervals at “80%”, with the only walking recovery being done after running at “100%”. If you’re looking for something to mimic OTF like I was, this isn’t the app for you. I guess I will just be using it for only the music feature, during a “free run” so I can set my own timeframe and intervals. :-/
Super productiva 5/5
Poco a poco he ido aumentando mi resistencia siguiendo los pasos de esta app.
False Advertising 1/5
By Not. Free.
This is not a free app, as soon as you input your info it starts you on a monthly or yearly plan before ever even opening the app.
It’s okay 4/5
Feel that the app is too expensive. I also would like a contemporary Christian music selection that is suitable for a running pace. Or I would like to be able to access my own music through the app.
Meal plan 4/5
The app is cool, but I wish we could choose the foods we like. I’m not really a seafood fan. It have the option for substitutes or ask what kind of foods you eat Meat, Pork, Seafood, poultry, etc... or at least ask about allergies
Expected more 3/5
The app doesn’t registers my Heart Rate from my FitBit Charge 2. Can’t be tailored, individualized as advertised.
What the heck??? 1/5
This app used to be free. Now you have to pay. No thanks. Many free apps out there. Don’t bother paying when others work just as well as this one.
Ups and downs 3/5
This app has its ups and downs. Was I a running before? No! Can I now run a 5k without stopping? Yes! This app does take steps to get you from running 1 minute to 4 minutes, etc. there are a lot of adds, and I do mean a lot. You can’t click anything without getting an add for their premium membership. An add here and there are fine, but this is every click. I have had the app for a while now and the verbal feedback was working fine. 2 updates ago, they screwed up big time. Now when the voice comes on saying your distance and time, it’s no longer freebee Lisa, instead it’s the 80s male robotic voice. I’ve submitted 2 times telling them this needs to be fixed and still nothing. Just what I want to hear when I’m 2 miles in. No thank you. I do like knowing my pace and such, which is why I’ve left that feature on, but looks like I’ll have to switch it off.
I need a refund 1/5
I have no idea why I purchase 1 year of subscription - I just browsed the app
It is not good
Syncing from Watch to App 3/5
Distance and pace will not accurately calculate from Apple Watch to App.
Running app 5/5
Thanks for the running app! I love it ; really enjoyed the workout! It was awesome!!!
Way more than I needed 4/5
TLDR: Awesome app jam packed with features but there’s a free ones that do the same job.
Wanna start off with the disclaimer that *nothing* is wrong with this app. Looks great and runs fine.
Im an intermediate runner trying to get back into shape after 4 years of college destroyed my body. I was in the army prior to school and I maintained a baseline fitness so really I gave this a look to try to shed the extra pounds.
I was between this app and C25K. C25K’s UI is an unappealing mess with nothing else to offer but honestly it does one thing and it does it super well.
This app on the other hand has so many training plans and extras (meal planning, drink water reminder, I don’t even know what else) but honestly I was just looking for a solid sprint trainer.
If all the bells and whistles sound appealing go for it for sure! But nothing this app does really allows me to justify a $10 monthly sub fee.
Loved it! 5/5
Great way to get back on track, definitely challenging, will be using it on a daily basis to help me get back on track.
I love this app 5/5
By cat girl2000
I’m happy to say that the food that they promote taste amazing eat it
You have to pay for the service
I had his app before, and I absolutely loved it. However, I had to redownload it onto a new smart phone. Now it only gives me an option to buy a plan. I’ve read the reviews with similar problems, the developers tell them to go to the menu -> support etc. But I can’t even get to the in app menu because I can’t move past the buy for “39.99 yearly or 9.99 a week page.” This is so very frustrating because I really did enjoy this app and I haven’t been able to find one like it. Until the bug or whatever is fixed, I’ll have to give it poor ratings.
Love this app! 5/5
This is the first app that I have found that is a running tracker with built in playlists. I will be recommending this app to all my friends!
I feel cheated 1/5
So my friend showed this app to me because she uses it. I loved everything about it so I downloaded it only to find out I have to pay for a membership to even use it but she has a free one. I don’t know what changed but it’s pretty disappointing knowing I have to pay monthly for it when it was advertised for free.
Disappointed about menu 3/5
It’s hard to believe with so many different dietary restrictions nowadays that there isn’t a way to select menu. I paid for premier membership and really don’t see the value.
Unknowingly added to a pre paid plan 1/5
By ashley logsdon
Did not want to pre pay for something. A trial, great. A forced pre ay a you’re like everything else that forces me to double down on a possibly helpful experience.
Great app! Pick your fitness level and grow. Love the motivational voice.
Not straight forward with subscription 1/5
They charged me $10 . Automatic renewal without any notice .
Good start 5/5
I like the app, and the features it has. Just getting used to it. Seems like something’s I’ll use for a long time and recommend to my friends.
You have to pay to access it 1/5
I downloaded the app a year ago, and i had access to the app fully.
However there were bugs in it, it was crashing so i decided to delete it and download it again.
And to my surprise I have to pay now to use the plans available. Such a disappointment.
Great running app!! 5/5
I love this app. I use it with some jams and I’m off for an amazing run every time!!! Lots of great options on here including meal plans and you can adjust you workouts and your meals to fit the type of training needed for you. Give it a shot!! You will love it!!
Best Running App 5/5
By Runner- Loving
Before I started this app, I hated running and I was never good at it. I could barely run a quarter of a mile before taking a break. With the help of this app, I was able to lose 20 pounds over the course of 3 months along with a proper diet. Now I can run farther distances and properly keep a constant pace. Since I do not like to run outside, I only use the treadmill feature which is something that not many apps have. This app has changed my one sad lifestyle into a happier, more confident, self-loving one. One disconcern I have with this app is the unrealistic push in progress. One workout can have about 20 minute sessions full of running and it makes sense because the past workouts have been leading up to this challenge. However the next workout can increase the time as far as 30 minutes. I find this to be quite a big range for one person to complete in the span of two workouts. I would feel better if they had slowly increased the time by 1 or 2 minutes like all other the running workouts. 10 minutes is a lot to increase by for the next workout. Another disconcern is sometimes the glitches that can happen. Usually I like to watch TV while I am running so I will play Youtube on my phone at the same time. This is not a daily glitch, but the lady as the voice over can forget to tell me when to switch over to running or walking (whichever comes next). So I could be running / or walking for longer than needed, until I realize myself that I needed to switch over awhile ago. Other than these two disconcerns of mine, this app is top notch and I intend to use it for a long time. I highly recommend this to those looking to lose weight for a better version of themselves. Without the discovery of this app, I would still be an unhappy soul searching up ways to lose weight. This app definitely makes you put in the work, but in the end, you are going to thank it for later when you look into the mirror feeling happy about yourself for once. As a side note, I started with the Start Running program and I have completed that and I am now on the beginner level of the 5K program. I am really excited to see how far I can achieve my goal in completing this program, since I have never trained for a 5K before.
Disappointing new voice 2/5
I used to love this app, but recently they’ve changed the voice of the person who tells you your stats while you run. Not only does the voice sound very mechanical (think Steven Hawking), but it’s hard to decipher over the music. Plus, now the voice of the person who tells you when to go faster or slower doesn’t even come on half the time. If they don’t step up their game, I’m going to find a new running app.
Love it 5/5
I’m slowly falling in love with this app. I am a beginner to running. I have tried several times to gradually build endurance and train myself to run but I always fail. This app is just perfect. It makes a plan for you and you just have to follow, slowly you will build endurance and you will be able to run for longer intervals.
Let alone the meal prep, and the nice music. Its just perfect. Love it
So so 3/5
I like this app. One of the things that I liked was that, according to the FitBit app both were compatible; however, when I tried to connect them both to track my progress, they wouldn’t connect. According to customer service, they aren’t really compatible. I’m considering changing this app for one that’s compatible with Fitbit.
Went downhill 1/5
I used to like this app, but now there is no free version. I’m not about to pay $10/month for it. I can run intervals for free by timing myself.
Very great app for beginners who are trying to lose weight
If it doesn’t act right I’m out! 3/5
I love a lot of things about this app, however, mapping/paving is so inconsistent if it doesn’t improve I’ll go back to my old running app.
I opened the advertisement and didn’t believe it was right for me. I went no further but come to find out that I was enrolled without my knowledge. I’ve been getting charged for months for nothing. Do not go near these criminals.
I like the free version 5/5
I like the free version so far. It only talks to me when I need to change my pace so I can listen to and watch YouTube videos at the same time of enjoying the coach aspect
Loved app before it locked me out 5/5
I am a paying user, but my app is stuck on “upgrade for 0.99” screen... when I click upgrade, I just get a payment failed notice.
Love the app when I can use it...
Impossible to subscribe 3/5
I’ve really enjoyed this app and my one month trial has run out. However, whenever I open the app to subscribe, an ad flashes for me to get a one month $0.99 trial. When I click “get this deal” the purchase fails and it’s impossible for me to get to any other screen to subscribe. Please fix!
This app used to be free. 3/5
Why isn’t there a free option anymore for this app? I have had this app for a couple of years and it’s always been free. Now the only option it is giving me is to subscribe for the premium membership.
