This app has really helped me get in shape. It sets out very good walk/run/jog times. A criticism is that the timing for the voice that tells you to walk/run/jog is off by a few seconds. I’d appreciate it if it told you to walk/run/jog at a more precise time.
Other than that, this app is a fantastic addition for any runner.

Beware -wifi only app

For the first time ever i purchased a running app and was so stoked to use it! I am getting ready to head out on my run, setup my playlist, go in to set up the app to start running...... and it doesn’t work, gives me a login error tells me to reboot my phone and try again, so i do annnnd still doesn’t work. So i go for my run and figure i have a setting wrong in the app and will check it out later. I get home, and the app opens perfectly fine and gives me the options screen!?! What the..... so i try again on my next run and same result -login error. Ok what in the heck is going on? I get home and again no issue, so i look again through my settings to find no visible option i did/didn’t choose. Only difference from my run and home is i am connected to wifi at home. Not good

Developer Response ,

The app works with mobile connections, its seems that there is a problem on the phone itself. Please uninstall the app en re-install because this often solves conflicts in the phone itself.
