Easy to follow trainer

The simplicity of this app and the fact that it's time based rather than mileage based makes it head and shoulders above most of them - and I've tried them all. The mileage tracking is a little off and always seems to underestimate so I use Strava at the same time for that. Overall though, I love it. The training plan feels "bite sized" and achievable so it almost tricks you into running the mileage. Perfect for beginning runners or first time distance trainers.

Apple just got rid of my review and I'm too lazy to type it all out because it was long

I just typed a super long and detailed review of this app which was lost. Ironically, this is similar to the 43 minutes of my life that were lost after I spent them running in the blistering heat only to have this app skip back to the warm up after 48 minutes when I accidentally grazed the button with my finger. I understand that you can lock your phone to "prevent" this, but that's rather impossible when I'm forced to use other running apps simultaneously because this one doesn't show your pace when you run! There are free apps out there that are MUCH better for runners. Why is it Sooooooo easy to just delete an entire segment from a run?? Shouldn't there at least be some kind of confirmation prompt before just skipping back and deleting all traces of hard work/torture?! Why can't the app record all of the runs that we do and just ADD the extra time if the runner chooses to go back to the previous segment?! Or why can't the user manually go back and edit the run after it is completed by deleting segments if they don't wish to have them factored in?! This is beyond annoying. Otherwise this app has good potential.

Good but Not Grear

I like the app as far as getting me ready for my half marathon. I am 2 weeks away from my race and I am already running the distance. I have never ran 12 miles before. The app did great in preparing me. I have 2 suggestions... I have been frustrated several times during my runs because of the forward and back buttons on the screen. I like to carry my phone as I run so I can easily see my progress. If you accidentally touch the forward or back button it will start you over or send you to the next stage of your work out! No way to go back to where you are in your run! Please either do away with those buttons, make it a two step process... "are you sure you want to start over" or have an option to go back to where you were in your run. If I am 9o minutes into a 120 minute run and my finger or once even my clothes hits the back button, your screwed unless you know the exact time you started the run after your warm up. Secondly, I wish there was a feature to keep up with distance. I have to run a second app on my phone to keep up with how far I am going and my time per mile. Would be nice to have that feature built in.
