Ratings and Reviews
I have enjoyed the past year plus using the 13.6 and recently 26.2 trainer. However today, I was all set to go using the new update and unfortunately twice when I locked my phone the program shut down. I was not getting my cues and when I got home, I looked at my run and it had not been tracking. I count on being able to set my program, music lock my phone using the settings and put it in my armband. Taking my phone out of the armband is not convenient when running. Feeling hot and disappointed.
Pretty good, with lots of room for improvement
The training schedule is just what I need, and the audio cues are great so I don't have to keep checking my phone.
However, the audio cues (and haptics on Apple watch) only continue to work if the phone is awake with the screen on the whole time. With the recent software updates causing older iPhones to drain battery like a sinkhole, I've found my phone hitting 20% battery halfway through a training session, and that little notification window interferes with the app until you acknowledge it. Same thing happens with the 10% battery warning. So it would be nice if the app could continue to work with the screen off. Most people fun with the phone tucked away in a pocket or am armband anyway, so it doesn't make sense to require the antenna to be on there whole time.
Also, now with the third generation Apple watches having standalone cellular capability, it would be really really nice to have the option of the watch app functioning independently of the phone. I hate lugging the phone around on runs, and constantly having to check the watch to make sure the phone isn't about to die and turning off the cues would allow better focus on the training.
First Marathon in the Books
I used this app to run my first marathon. I had never ran a race in my life, and only had experience with road bike races. I was intimidated with running a marathon but this app broke it down and made it easy to follow step by step, day by day. It has a really comfortable progression in distance and how you run the miles as well 3 min run/2 min rest, to 4 min/2 min, to 4 min/1 min, to 5 min/ 1 min, back to 4 min/1 min. I would recommend this to any first time marathoner.
