Good app, hate the ads! 4/5
App has potential. Definitely motivated me to start running. But there are issues! What is the difference between the free and pro app? I still see “upgrade to premium” ads on the pro version which is very annoying when I want to document my water intake.
And I initially started with the free version but also paid for the pro version of the app. Is there a way to import data from free app to the pro app? What’s the point of paying money to buy a PRO app when nothing about it is worth it?!!
Update- figured out how to synchronize between free and paid app. You need to register for a red rock account or use your Facebook account. But the ads on the pro app are still annoying.
Play list.. 2/5
By Marcos Coria
I paid for the premium and I notice that the music is always the same.. I play one play list yesterday and I played the same list two weeks later same music no new mixes...
Enjoy the app but.. 2/5
I enjoy the application and workouts but the constant annoyance of being asked to upgrade to premium is ridiculous. I paid for the app, I don’t want to be asked 10 times a day and when I open if I want to upgrade to premium.
I actually love this app, and I hate running. I like how it is an interval training plan and gives you manageable times for your fitness level. I haven’t purchased premium but am considering it.
Great app to keep you on track. I wish it would announce all things you set it up for. For example, I set it up for event announcements, but it doesn’t tell me, say, when it’s time to walk or cool down.
Love it!! 5/5
I also can’t believe I paid for this 1/5
I’m annoyed that I paid for the pro version and still 50% of the app is locked to me. Ugh don’t spend your money! There are hundreds of free apps that can do everything the “pro” version can do.
Motivation to keep going! 5/5
I love this app. The running programs are tailored to your fitness level and yet still challenging. I have never finished a program until using this app and I went from barely being able to run 200m at CrossFit to a 5k in a few months. It works!
It’s a great app to hold you to consistency and motivation.
Great App! 5/5
This app made it easy to run and get into the habit of running. You could also feel the challenge and workout! I look forward to working out with it🙂
I just bought the premium version and the app keeps crashing every time I open it.☹️ I was so excited and motivated to start my running and meal planning.
Great until new update 2/5
Loved this app until the new update. Now it just crashes. Tried deleting and redownloading but didn’t help. Please fix.
Just crap 1/5
I used to love this app. The last time I tried to use it, it crashed. I tried everything from completely closing the app to turning my phone on and off to deleting the app and re-downloading it (which erased all my data). It’s very disappointing 😡😡
This app deserves less than one star 1/5
The previous app did the same thing the “new” app does. Cuts out intermittently, I can’t even set up my profile without it shutting off randomly. When/if it works, it works great. But I figured the problems with the initial app would have been fixed by now. Especially if you’re charging people for it.... how do I get a refund?
Like the app but. 5/5
ITS KEEPS CRASHING. PLEASE FIX IT I WOULD LIKE TO RUN USING THE APP AND ITS HARD WHEN IT CRASHES 10 SECONDS INTO OPENING IT
Music always cuts out and stops! 3/5
Otherwise a good app, but the music cutting out and stopping is truly annoying!!!
Love This App 5/5
By Shalhevet Shiphrah
I have a hard time with keeping weight off unless I severely restrict my diet. Running helps a lot, so I’m trying to get to a 10k. Figure if Im running 5k-10k every day I’ll be set to early whatever whenever.
The app cuts off randomly when trying to open. Frequently while In the middle of a workout when I hit a milestone I will be told twice which is not needed and when this happens I will not be alerted to change my pace when necessary. I also have trouble with it telling me to change pace even when just listening to music. I find this very frustrating mid workout when I’m trying to build my miles. Please work on these glitches.
Another thing that would be helpful is if while doing your workout it would display which workout it was.
Their Billing Approach is Wierd 1/5
I don’t know why I’m subscribed in this app, I thought I already canceled it, but they surprise every month when they deduct the subscription fee,& weirdest thing I ever had, is that when you look at your iTunes subscription you find them under the name: “premium membership”
I don’t what’s the application, I have to figure it out that this is a premium membership for app called “Running”
They stole a lot of me, I don’t even know the credentials to log in!
Music selections & uses WiFi 3/5
I’m not loving the music selections but they will do. Also, I don’t like that the app doesn’t operate offline.
I paid the the 1 year subscription and the recipes are now available. Nothing to exciting.
Blank screen 1/5
By Call of duty three freak
Not sure what is up but have blank screen
Good in theory 3/5
App is buggy. Freezes mid run and has to be restarted. Has issues with music. Hangs up when trying to post progress to Facebook. I’m in week 5 so I’ll finish out my program, but then I might need to switch.
Good way to keep track n
Can’t believe I paid for this 1/5
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! 4/5
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.
My favorite so far 4/5
Although not perfect this app is my favorite out of the ones I tried. I like how you can customize your workouts and set goals based on your fitness level. The music is good too. The only part that I don’t enjoy so much is the diet plan. Too many power bar suggest and menus with expensive ingredients. Their shopping lists do not combine similar ingredients that you will use for different recipes thus it is a bit a pain to use.
I love this app 5/5
I lost a lot of weight with this app! I didn’t really know what I was doing ruining Weis untill I got this app, I’ve always been a big lifter so I’ve always been in the gym just cardio was and is not my strong point, definitely a good app if you stay dedicated and continue the workouts
Be careful. Deceptive. 2/5
Purchasing the Pro Version for $1.99 doesn’t unlock the Premium version. The Premium options are $9.99 a month.
What did I pay for? 1/5
I see absolutely no difference from the reg app to pro app...refund please
bought the pro version of this app because the original was very slow. there were a lot of technical issues like closing out of the app, stoping my music and just being slow in general. i bought the pro version thinking it would be better than the free one but still have the same issues. very confused because my friend who suggested the app to me said it works great on her phone.... please fix it.
Keeps freezing 1/5
Fix your app. It keeps freezing in the middle of workout.
Was great the first day- tried to use the second day today, repeatedly crashes on multiple devices. Can’t believe we actually paid for this.
Apple Watch problems 1/5
Please fix Apple Watch app, after update to 4.1 app on Apple Watch doesn’t even start 9 out 10 or crashes all the time
A Life Savior 5/5
I have been struggling with asthma and overweight for a long time. This has helped me lose weight and strengthen my breathing since I started using it. Thanks for designing it!!
Same problem as the other user 2/5
After years of problem free use, this app is going backwards
I have played with this several ways and determined that the only way to use this app without random hangs during my run (have to close and restart the app multiple times) is to remove it from my Apple watch3. A serious fail.
Freezes on iOS 11; Support was terrible toward my very legitimate question 1/5
UPDATE 11/14/17: I wanted to give the app one more chance so I tried today’s update. No go. App still freezes, and only way to get it back is to REBOOT the phone. Killing the app doesn’t work!! I didn’t think Apple even allowed that!! And the Apple Watch part of the app is HORRIBLE. The time doesn’t stay in sync with the phone at all!! I don’t understand what the developers are doing; I’m sure they’re working hard trying to make a good app but what gives here??? Sorry developers, I give up and will now be deleting this app for good. I really wanted this to be my go-to running app, but there are so many better ones out there. (Nike NRC+ has been amazing so far, and it’s completely free without trying to charge you for premium “features.”)
UPDATE 10/22/17: reducing my score from 2 stars to 1. Today the app froze to the point where killing the app didn’t do any good. I had to completely reboot the phone for the app to start working again. All this while I was right in the middle of a sprint. Absolutely terrible. I will bump my rating up when/if this is fixed.
Ever since I updated to iOS 11 this app freezes at least 3 times throughout my run. This happens every workout since updating.
Worse though is my recent experience with support. I opened a Support ticket b/c I don’t understand why when I completely stop moving, the calories continue to count up (rapidly). No other running app works this way. I told them that I can literally sit in one place for upwards of 10 minutes and the calories burned metric will continue to count up quite quickly the entire time. Their answer: “Many metrics about your workout are taken into consideration to calculate calories burned.” I felt like I was dealing with a robot. Upon telling them that their reply didn’t answer my question and that all other running apps work as expected in this regard, they literally replied and told me they couldn’t help me with my issue.
I wonder if my experience would have been any different if I were a paid subscriber. Thing is, I explained to them that if they couldn’t at least acknowledge the issue, they were going to lose the potential for a longtime paying customer b/c of how I otherwise thought the app had something unique to offer. Guess they couldn’t care less about that! Going back to Runkeeper.
I really do love this program but ... 5/5
With the latest update it completely reset itself and started my current program over from the beginning. I find that very frustrating.
Great app when it works 4/5
This is a great app but with every update something goes wrong. With the most recent update the app doesn’t even open. When it works and opens, it’s great, but this freezing and non opening is incredibly frustrating. I wouldn’t complain except that it happens A LOT!
Good app. However, not stable under iOS 11 1/5
I like the app. It is good focused approach to running. However, since the release of iOS 11, the app is buggy. It gets very slow during the workout. You start to see the workout time counter skipping counts until it just freezes. After that, the entire app stop responding and you need to force stop it. A major issue for me is that once this happens, the workout does not register within Apple’s Health App. Even if within the App you see that you have done a workout.
Love the app and its direction... when it is working properly 😔
Freezes all the time with iOS 11 2/5
Love the app but it’s unusable right now. It freezes every 2 minutes
Not working with apple update 4/5
Great app, but it seems to not be working with the new apple update!
Great App! 5/5
By Dande Girl
Love this app!
Great app but they need fix a few bugs 5/5
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!
Keeps me motivated and varies my routine!
Great aid for running 5/5
Love the music, Love that the pacing changes with your footsteps. The lazy trainer voice is great and makes me lol as I’m running. I’ve used the music for other workouts and will probably continue to buy the pro version just for that alone! Wonderful app.
Why are there still ads after premium membership??? 3/5
Have the pro version and upgraded to premium membership AND still have ads!!! Love the workouts, hate the ads and the constant pop up asking me to purchase premium, considering I already have! Annoying.
This app just keeps getting better! 5/5
I went from couch potato to being able to run for an hour with this app. It keeps me really motivated. They just added training programs for a half marathon and a marathon so here I go!
Never been a runner Sue
Ads after premium purchase? 1/5
There are still ads after paying for a year subscription! Crazy! Refund please!
Music crashes the app 3/5
By A snap
Try to start music and the app freezes
