Couch to 5K® - Run training App User Reviews & Comments

Like the pace but not great with Apple WatchI liked this app once before when I used to be in shape and just needed to start at a higher level since I’ve never been a runner. However, after pregnancy and a year gone by, I’m beyond out of shape. So this app is by far helping me get back into it. On the other hand, I’m very very very disappointed that I bought the version that is compatible with Apple Watch. Why be compatible with Apple Watch if you still make me carry around my IPhone?? I hate carrying anything when I run and now that it’s summer my shorts don’t have a pocket like only 1 of my workout pants does. This needs to be updated so you can just workout with your watch..Version: 4.5.3

Good and Things could be Better.Technically a great app, everything works for me. But its the little things that annoy you that could easily be fixed. Looking at other reviews some ppl feel the same. Such as the ability to turn off animation, turn off warm up/cool down, turn on shuffle, you know choices. I’m sure these features are coming probably in a new in-app monthly price because...capitalism. A personal pet peeve is the running program jumps to quickly one day your running 1:30 and next it’s 3:00. seriously what happened to the 2:00 mins?? Good app if they listen to the users it could be better..Version: 4.5.0

Used to be greatI used this app before this update last year around this time. It worked so well, and I was even able to finish it and run my first 5K! Well through the year, I started slacking and wanted to get back into running because I love doing it. I knew right where to go to help me start training. This Couch to 5K app! Downloading it and opening up and seeing the beautiful new redesign was a nice surprise, and I was so excited to run. I went to my normal spots where I used to run where I never had an issue tracking my speed, distance, or placement on a map. After my run, I went to check how I did, and I couldn’t see any info. It said I ran/walked a distance of 0.07 miles, when I actually did about 1.75 miles, and it had no information of my speed. It didn’t start tracking me until I was in my cool down. I’ve tried turning my location services on and off, clearing my workout history, going to a different place I used to run, starting a new account, and nothing!! I used to have no problem with it tracking me, and now I don’t really understand what the issue is..Version: 4.2.0

Pretty Good !I have only been using the app for three days so far, so I guess my review is limited right now. So far the pace is decent (for someone totally out of shape), and hopefully I can keep up as it progresses. I like the different display pages, and how it shows yours your progress a lot. My only complaint is the limited input by the “coach”, and that I barely hear it when it wants me to switch between intervals (not a phone volume issue). I run to music, and when the app wants me to switch between walking and running, it says about 2-4 words that I barely catch over the music. At the beginning the coach sounds good (voice going over the music), but while running it is lacking. I would also like the coach to throw in more words of wisdom and updates to keep me motivated while working out. I definitely plan on using the app through to the 5k, and will try and update as I progress. That’s it for now..Version: 4.5.0

Good for intervals but not much elseAll I was looking for was something to tell me when to walk and when to jog/run and it does that fine, but there are definitely a few issues the app developers need to address, both of which other reviews have also mentioned. The first is that when my music volume goes down for an audio command from the app it doesn’t go back up- just stays at that quiet level and I can’t be messing with my phone while jogging. The other is that the audio commands are helpful but they only work if the app is open- they don’t happen if you have another app open or your phone locks..Version: 3.7.1

Can't find the support page…So I guess that's another factor to this less than stellar review. I love using this app since it's definitely helped me get from my mostly sedentary state to looking forward to getting a good run in and breaking a sweat. My biggest issue is with music playback: my music plays at regular volume for the 5 minute warmup walk, then as the trainers voice cuts in it lowers the volume (so I can hear them, understandably) and never comes back to full volume. So frustrating! Half of what keeps me motivated is having good music going and when it feels like it's miles away, my workout seems bland. I tried to find a support page to leave this feedback on so it wouldn't have to negatively affect my review of the app, but since that took me in a maze of webpages, I guess it goes here. Someone help! Please and thanks..Version: 3.6.8

Used to be great...I was using this running program through the Active website before it became an app. I absolutely loved the program and app (up until about a year and a half ago) and over the years have told so many people to purchase it because it’s one of the best ones I’ve found in terms of building a base without injuries and for not being intimidating, even for new runners. That said, the last year or so I’ve been thoroughly disappointed with the app. It’s buggy, shuts down randomly and doesn’t save the run (other apps I’ve tried that are free, you can just reopen the app if it crashes and the run is still going so you don’t lose everything), and most importantly does not work with the Apple Watch like it claims to (I have a cellular plan and the app, phone and watch are fully up to date). You have to bring your phone with you if you want to see any of the stats (time, distance, pace, interval) and that defeats the purpose. Also, sometimes it’ll queue me to run or walk with a buzz notification on my watch (when I’ve left my phone at home) but most the time doesn't. There’s no telling when it will or won’t work. The convenience this app used to provide isn’t there any more because it’s not keeping up to date with modern technology. Until these issues are fixed I would discourage anyone paying for the app..Version: 4.5.4

Meh... some good, but bad is more.It's a simple app. So it does the one thing with the parsing of the running workouts. Then it tries to sell you a bunch of stuff you don't need or want and compete with fbook for a "social experience"... Next it wants to compete with LinkedIn and get you a job. But the real problem is that it doesn't do the one thing it should well. It doesn't gradually ramp you up based upon some responsive algorithm. Nope some guy just came up with some time partitions and told you to deal with it. Finally it doesn't track your gps (per the support email I received) "indoors or in small spaces like tracks...". Well ok so when does it work? Not even outdoors very well, either, bc I have driven my route and the thing came up short vs the car odometer. So it makes you feel really slow when it tells you you ran a 12 min mile pace. Even though you know it's wrong you can't do anything about your stats, like draw in the course on a map. Not worth the money in my opinion when other apps do it better..Version: 3.6.8

It does what it says, but is a closed systemI’m really happy to have the assistance of an app to get myself back running. It does what it says it does. But I’m really disappointed that the app’s data is self contained. The app doesn’t trigger a workout with the Apple Health app so I miss out on the larger statistical analysis that I could be getting. If there is a setting for this it is well hidden. The watch app is all but useless, though, unless there’s something wrong with my setup. I get notifications on my watch, but if I want to check progress I need to tell the watch to switch to the app, wait for the app to sync with the phone, and then I can see the data. Repeat for any time you want a visual update and you almost immediately just ignore the presence of the watch app..Version: 4.1.2

Great program, mediocre appI restarted this program recently after being out of the game with running for a while. I used this app the first time I started running and it helped me get into 5k shape (I'm definitely not much of a natural runner). After using this app for the first time in a while, I'm finding a couple of issues that I don't remember having before. The coach is way too quiet in the background of my music (though my music is not very loud and the coach starts off at a great volume when you first begin). I find myself often missing cues to walk or run. Also, it is not taking my distance or pace as it did before, even though GPS is active. I also think that it would be helpful if there was a bar on the lock screen of my phone when the app is running, I have to unlock my phone every time I need to check if I missed a cue to walk or run, which is inconvenient while running. The program is great and I recommend it to anyone who wants to get into shape without burning themselves out, but the app needs some work..Version: 4.5.3

Used to be goodI got this app to start running again. I used this app 2 years ago and loved the app. I have the Apple Watch and was excited to use the app with it. I like to check my progress, but it will close out of the watch and I have to go back into the app during a run, which is frustrating. This happens 2-3 times during the run. I also do not like that every time you start the app you have to go pick your trainer and then the trainers do and say stuff before you can go to the actual running. It was cute the first time, but I know what trainer I want. If I want to change it I can go through the app. It does t need to show up every time I use the app. I’m disappointed, I payed money for this app and its finicky. I really hope they fix the watch part. I am still using it because I paid for it and I’m on week 4, but maybe it’s time I find another app..Version: 4.5.3

Used it for years!I’m very pleased with this app. I’ve used it several times over the last six years, and each time it’s been a great tool which helped me feel confident about my running. My only two problems come from the music player. I wish it had a shuffle option, so I could easily listen to different songs each time I run. I have found a work around for that, but it would be nice to have in-app. The second is the volume changes. After getting a cue, the volume often cuts lower, so music that was at a motivating level becomes significantly quieter and nothing can easily be done to fix it while you’re running. Again, great app, I’ll keep using it for sure..Version: 4.5.6

Seriously? Wasted Money.Bought the app only to discover it won’t work without phone in hand. Um, so what’s the purpose of a watch app then? It takes me ten minutes to walk to the trail I want to use. I don’t want to tote a phone just to be able to start the app up to then be able to view it on my watch. That’s just ridiculous. There are no instructions. It starts off with a five minute warmup. As a newb runner wannabe, how about explaining to me WHAT a warmup is? Did the developers even run this by anyone before throwing it on the market? Cheeses me off the realize it has a copycat name to the one that was recommended on a fitness forum I frequent, too. Not cool. Be your own kind of brilliant. Don’t glom on to someone else’s. Three bucks wasted. Wish I could get a refund for total uselessness. Something I’ve never said in an app review..Version: 4.5.3

A few changesThis is a great app and the changes made thus far have been helpful. I love that users can access specific playlists, but it would be awesome if that playlist would have a shuffle option. I currently have to fast forward through my running playlist so I’m not listening to the same songs as the day before. Another improvement is to create a complication for the Apple Watch that allows audio through the watch so I don’t have to have my phone with me to run, I can just use my watch. It would make this app a 5 ⭐️ if you could make these changes..Version: 4.5.0

Awesome, but Slightly Tedious, App!This is such a great app! I’m on my 2nd round of using it now (I can run a 5k personally, but my husband can’t and wanted a training partner), and once I’m through I plan on using the “5k to 10k” app as well. The only reason I’m not rating five stars are the “badges/trophies.” I think they’re fun, but it’s tedious to click through three or so screens at a time, because you got multiple badges. That said, the program absolutely did work for me. Last year, I was basically sedentary (and overweight), and now I run a 5k once a week (still overweight, but much less so), as well as do the program with my husband (who is on week four, so not quite a 5k yet). It can be a bit tough on the knees, but I haven’t felt any pain beyond normal soreness..Version: 4.5.0

So Happy!I’ve been working on the Cto5K for about a year now, starting at being able to barely run for a minute at a time. I’ve tried a few different times and always ended up stopping because I would pop something in my calf - which is obviously my error. Then I learned how to actually prepare my body before runs, and now I’m nearly complete with the program. Today I ran past my week 8 day 1 queue for a cool down (I didn’t hear it!) and actually ended up clearing the distance for a 5K. I know this sounds like a paid review but it isn’t, I swear. I’m so grateful for this app. I’m happier, healthier, and recommending it to all my friends who are trying to get themselves to where they want to be too. Small steps turn into big progress if you stick to it, and I’m so glad that I have. Can’t wait to register for a 5K once the ‘Rona is clears up!.Version: 4.5.4

Timer freezing at the worst timeI was very happy with this app but got to week 8 right around the time I upgraded to iOS 11. For some reason I just couldn’t make it through the whole 28 minute run. I thought I’d hit a wall...until I opened the app during one run and saw that the timer had frozen. I locked and unlocked my phone and the timer unfroze for a few seconds then froze again. And then it happened again during that run and again during another attempt and I realized why I couldn’t do a full 28 minute run...I was actually attempting a much longer run due to the timer repeatedly freezing during my run. This is a pretty major issue and severely impacts my ability to use the app. :( other than that, it’s been fantastic..Version: 3.7.1

Great app for beginners!I HATE running. I HATE exercising. This program has helped me to change both of those attitudes since I finally found a program on my level- truly a beginner. I have quit and picked it back up and it’s truly my go-to program when I am starting over. If you feel you can never exercise or you are too out of shape to even begin, I definitely recommend this program. Even if you can’t jog the 1 min in week one (as I did when I first started), then do what you can and repeat the week until you CAN do it. Stick with it and you WILL be running a 5K by the time you are finished..Version: 4.5.3

The coaching is terrific! The rest of the app is useless...This is the running app that has motivated me and prepared me for running a 5k. The workouts are simple and gradually increase more running time. I am now able to focus more on pacing myself and being able to run longer. I love love love the workouts! The one thing that did bum me out is all of the glitches with the rest of the app. I cannot see anything other than my personal log and have tried to sign in by creating a profile and use my Facebook, but all I get is an error message when trying to access articles, events, and friends..Version: 4.2.0

My only good COVID investmentTwo coworkers, my daughter, and I all invested in this app when things started shutting down this spring. We are different genders, vary in age from 10 to over 40, have 0 - 25 extra pounds of weight on board, and range from couch potato to strong and active. None were runner though and we all found that the progress was perfect for not over doing it but enough to challenge us. Since we all fit it in a different times in our perspective neighborhoods / cities sharing progress via the app with each other was motivating..Version: 4.5.6

Love! But one suggestion ...I love this app. I have been using it to get out being so out of shape and I’m about halfway. I had ankle surgery last year and so I’m taking longer than the 9 weeks. But it’s easy to repeat days and the pace is great. One suggestion! The app seems to assume I’m running outside but since I’m strengthening my ankle at the same time it’s really much safer for me to use a treadmill. A setting for that would be nice. Right now at the end it tells me something crazy like I ran .11 miles. Which is incorrect obviously. Seems like something a treadmill setting could help..Version: 4.5.3

Nice way to restart, some glitchesThis has helped me restart running after a long break. I am grateful for the app, and I am on week 9! But a couple of thoughts: It would be nice to have a readout of that day’s workout, so you can mentally plan ahead rather than having to wait to start the run and see what’s coming next. Also, when the coach comes on during the workout to cheer you on, it lowers the volume of whatever you’re listening to and that volume does not recover when the coach stops talking. It will come back at full volume for the cooldown, though, so if you turn the volume up mid-run suddenly it gets super loud at the end..Version: 4.5.4

Helped me with pacingI've run several 5k and even a 10k prior to the app. I was "out of the game" for a while and decided to use this app to get back into it. Building up and focusing on time spent running rather than distance really helped me learn to better pace myself. I like that none of the runs are incredibly long either, the longest toward the end is around 40 mins including warm up/ cool down. I recommend to friends often. However, I'm not giving 5 stars because I've encountered SO many glitches. Several times the app has shut down on me without warning, and when it does that none of the run is recorded (this usually happens to me toward the end of the run). The distance and time recorded in the app also include warm up and cool down, which I hate. I want to know my pace and time spent during the actual workout only. For those two reasons, I always keep a second running app recording on my phone with running to give me better data and reliability..Version: 4.1.0

Not as good as it used to beI downloaded the app a few years ago and LOVED it. This latest version though is left wanting. First off, I had to purchase it again because it didn’t remember that I had already bought the app. Then it has been pretty glitchy. This morning it skipped a full walking section and went from run to run. The other day it froze on the warm up and wouldn’t go into a run. Also, the audio cues are difficult to hear with my music playing so I have to listen really closely to know what I need to do. I turned on the vibrate to see if that would help and it barely made a difference. I used to be able to look at what the intervals were so I could mentally prepare myself for the run and now I can’t. I have to keep hitting “skip” then redo the exercise just to see what is expected of me that day. I am not impressed with the app and it has been sooooo frustrating to us. I go jogging for my mental health and it doesn’t help that this app gets me all wound up because it’s not operating as it should. Finally, skipping tracks when the exercise starts and shutting of my music after cool down is super annoying. I get my music ready before I go and like to listen to my music after I stretch and it shuts my music off or skips tracks..Version: 4.5.4

Worthless for meIf you're wanting this to work with the Apple Watch - don't bother. You have to have your phone with you for this to work - the run isn't offloaded to the watch. I bought a watch so I wouldn't have to run with my phone. And the "watch app" itself is very poorly executed. Even on the treadmill with the phone right in front of me (not tracking distance, of course), every time I glanced at the watch it told me to start the run on my phone - then after a second or so regained its mind and started showing its EXTREMELY limited stats. I'm really happy so many people are getting such value out of this app - because of that I was really excited about the coaching but it just won't work for me. Waste of money for me, but I should've researched more..Version: 4.5.3

I love it!*Edit* I still love this app. I’ve fallen off but get back on it so easily. Can you make it so the app doesn’t lower the volume of the music. It effects it by at least 50%. I absolutely enjoy this app!! My run time and overall cardio has substantially increased. I really enjoy the training program, however the UI can be better. My halfway indicator word rarely and when it shows the GPS it won't tell me what the dropped pins were. I believe the entire feel of the app can be updated, it feels a little out dated and doesn't have a fresh feel to it. Overall really great program to hit the hardball road! Oh and the Apple Watch app needs some serious updates. The app on the watch lags by at least 15-20 seconds..Version: 3.6.8

Great for stress/anger managementLet’s face it… 2020 has sucked for a lot of people in a lot of ways, and I am no exception. By the end of the year, however, I decided to stop using unhealthy coping mechanisms to deal with it. A couple of friends recommended this app, and while I’ve never liked running and I still don’t like it, I try never to miss a workout. I am always calmer afterwards, and the app’s workouts don’t give you more than you can handle. Also, the reward badges are hilarious. I like the variety of trainers, but I always run with Constance—just my speed..Version: 4.5.6

Killing itLet me preface this by saying I am a person who enjoys fitness and started Couch to 5K at a decent base level of cardio fitness. Not amazing, but I’m not a couch potato either. I’ve never been great at distance running, but it’s been on my list for a few years to run a 5K so this year is the year. Highly recommend paying money and signing up for one so you’re motivated to stick with it. The first 4 weeks of this program make sense and work you up in sensible intervals. Then week 5-7 are madness. Like I looked at them and I was like HOW!? Who came up with this?? But surprise of all surprises... I did it! I actually was ready for those crazy hard weeks. So needless to say, I’ve been very impressed with this app as far as fitness programming. The app itself has also worked well for me. Once in a while I think it may not be playing the “walk” or “jog” bits but that might be because my phone is on silent..Version: 4.5.4

The best.I’ve tried quite a few of these, and this one is the best. I like my cheery coach, Runicorn, and I wish he was in the other Active apps. Some of my older runs have lost the comments I wrote. It was a little better before some of the updates. I can’t read the workout descriptions anymore, because they have gotten so small. They didn’t make all these changes to the 5k to 10K app, but that thing is still too hard for me. But, after all that it is still the best I have tried, by far. The gps seems to be pretty accurate in my area. It doesn’t work you to death, and all the stats are a good motivator. I especially like the graphs in the log. Well done. I didn’t think I could do it, but it looks like I will actually finish the whole app this time. Here we go, week 8!.Version: 4.5.3

Motivating and a great way to work your way up!I love this app. I ran cross country in HS- 25 years ago! Lost myself after having kids and just in the past couple months got back into the grove of running. Couch to 5k makes it easy to gradually build up your endurance. I just opened. It up, select sarge (prior AF here), open up a podcast and go! I love the built in wa up and cool down - those are things I often forgot on my own and paid the price later. If you’re looking for a way to get back in shape check this out!.Version: 4.5.6

Couch Potato? This app works!I have been trying different exercise programs for years to lose weight. I never stuck to them, because they usually felt out of my reach and too hard for a couch potato like me. I’ve stuck to this program, and loved it. It allows you to go at your own speed per gait, but tells you when to walk or jog at intervals that increased slowly, but like I felt that I could do. I feel good about myself, and love how it starts so easy and increases with difficulty. Anyone can do it! The only thing I wish they would add, though, is having the trainer tell when it’s the last jog interval, so I could give it my all. Still, I would definitely recommend this app..Version: 3.7.0

Should be 5 starsI am only finished with week 2 but the workout part of this program is awesome. I was more of a bed to 5k type person so I had to repeat the week 1 workout twice before I was able to get going but I am not through week 2 and am having no troubles. For that a lone it is worth the purchase. Now for why it lost the two stars. The voice cues and vibration misses are a huge problem especially for beginners that just getting one foot in front of the other is enough of a challenge. I had to purchase a $30 arm band for my 6plus just yo help with the issue. I have learned to just reset that section of the routine to get it back but that is going to be an issue later on. This has to be fixed or reworked. I also just purchase an apple watch hoping that I could get the timers and cues on it. No such luck. I just not everyone has the apple watch so that would be a good in app purchase. I would pay $5 to get that feature. Update: They added Apple Watch support but it is very bad and close to broken. They also do not update activity or any other apple health stats. It is sad because I love the fitness part of the app..Version: 4.5.3

Everything is great except sound.I enjoy almost everything about this app and workout program. It steps up the intensity at a good pace and the variety of motivating voices are fun. The only thing that almost made me leave the app was the sound control. The music and prompt volumes are connected and, until I turned off control of the music through the app, it was a crap shoot as to whether I could hear them. Sometimes it would be loud, sometimes it would be so soft, I’d have to keep restarting workouts. Since I turned off music control through Couch to 5k, the prompt volume is ok, but it’s still tied to the music volume. Please please fix this. It can’t be that hard to decouple the app volume from the music. Otherwise, great app..Version: 4.5.3

Seriously the best thing ever for non-runnersWhen they say “couch to 5K”, they mean it. I was 255lbs when I started this program. Never ran a day in my life. Could barely even climb the stairs, much less jog for a minute straight. A 5K seemed impossible. 10 weeks later, I’ve lost 40lbs and I just ran my first 5K straight with no walking intervals. It was a serious challenge, but after you get through the first half of the training you actually start to look forward to it (at least, I did). Just try it. It really is all it’s hyped up to be!.Version: 4.5.6

Not bad but not perfectNot quite a literal couch to 5k program. Someone who goes from no exercise routine and a bit overweight will have to repeat weeks to be prepared to be able to go from jogging 2 minutes to 3 minutes and then repeat to go from 3 to 5 minutes and so on. Also a big flaw for me is that whenever the app gives encouragement at the halfway point it lowers my music and doesn’t resume normal volume until the run is over. It also glitched on my last run today too- I really need my music up to help me mentally get through the run! For a non-free app I’d like bugs fixed fast and see a bit more workout variety for different levels..Version: 4.5.4

Good for new runnersBefore using this app I was not a good runner and had never tried to be one before. It starts off so easy and builds gradually enough that it worked really well for me. I can now jog without stopping for about 3 miles which amazing! My pace isn’t great yet, but the fact that I can just keep going was my initial goal from the start. My biggest complaint is it’s harder to keep track if you need to go back in time. I took about 5 months off when I was over halfway through with the app because of health reason. When I was able to get back to it, it was not conceivable for me to be able to jog 28 minutes straight again. It was much harder for me to keep up with where I was each time I ran because the app wanted me to jog where I left off 5+ months prior..Version: 4.4.0

Slow and buggy! Wish I could give 0 stars!I’m using this on my iPhone 6+ running iOS 11. It must think I need to exercise more since the seconds are about 4 seconds long! The time goes WAY TOO slow and it starts to skip seconds because it bugs out in the last 10 minutes and stops working. The past two days I’ve had to exit the app because it froze and lost the whole workout. There’s SO MANY reminders to turn on certain things and those bug it out too! I use this on a treadmill where I can watch the clock so I dont need notifications, but every screen change (every time I would hit a button to do something) I’d get the stupid reminder to turn on my notifs. This app is great when it’s not so annoying that I actually get angry at it! Also, if I say I don’t want to sync my workouts, IT MEANS I DONT WANT TO SYNC MY WORKOUTS. This app is actually terrible bug wise. Please fix it! I love this and need it for a fitness class and if it doesn’t work, I can’t do it!.Version: 3.7.1

Good to start running withLOVE THIS APP! if you are wanting to get into running this is the app for you :) I will say that the program won’t let you repeat days and save the previous data from those days at the same time which would make a HUGE difference for me in terms of how I feel about the app overall. I also think that the app should have some training and guideline tips for the actual running process. In addition, the app doesn’t allow you to change the schedule/amount of days you run per week. I wish that you could change it to fit what works best for you..Version: 4.5.8

Great training program. App could use improvementI’ve used the training program to get back in shape a number of times over the years. The training portion works great if you stick to it. The app itself could use some improvements though. It needs better pairing software for the Apple Watch. Being able to run this app standalone on the watch as a complication would be a huge benefit so you could run without taking your phone. Also, The app does not continue to run in the background when your phone is locked. It’s difficult to keep from pushing buttons while running and could benefit from using push notifications instead of leaving open for the duration of the workout..Version: 4.1.1

Buggy timer on iOS 11I have been using this app on my IPhone 5 for a couple of years with no problems. Simple, easy to use and accurate. I just upgraded to iOS 11 and have had nothing but problems since then. I’ve gone on 2 runs and 10 minutes in the timer gets wonky. The seconds get tripped up, move slowly or the timer stops altogether. Yesterday I was in the cool down and the timer stopped. Then the app closed and all my data for that run was lost. Super frustrating. I tried resetting the app and also deleted and reloaded it, to no avail. I even ran the timer against a stopwatch for accuracy and the same problem occurred. I love this app and want to continue to use it, but will have to look elsewhere if they can’t fix this bug. I emailed them today so we’ll see what happens. Like other reviewers, I also have experienced the same issue with the music volume dropping way down after the first voice prompt. Not nearly as big of an issue as inaccurate / buggy timing, but a nuisance just the same. I hope they can fix these issues..Version: 3.7.1

Love this new update, but just one issue...Like I said, I love this update. It works great on my 6S. The big problem lies in the old version. I’m on week 6 of the program, and in the earlier weeks the app would work...sparingly. Basically, the app would glitch in the last few minutes of my workout and crash. So I would go back into the app and manually enter my distance. But I can’t change the time. I would just skip through quickly, and it would say I went 2.2 miles in one second. It messes with my statistics. I just don’t understand why I can only manually input my distance, and not my time. Other than that, the program works great. I finished it about two years ago and had since fallen out of the habit of running..Version: 4.0.0

I want to love it, but it simply doesn't functionFilled out my profile and got started. Plugged in the earphones, stuck it in my pocket and launched off. But after telling me to take a brisk five minute walk, I didn't hear the trainer again. Pulled out the phone, pressed away the lock screen, and found that the app assumed I was halfway through a jogging sequence, though nothing had been said. Turned off the screen, dropped it back in my pocket, and immediately the voice said "brisk walk, jog, walk, halfway there! Jog." Jogged on in silence for another few minutes, drew it out of my pocket, pressed past lock screen, and found that the app had paused itself. Started the whole thing over and found that only if I kept the phone in my hand, with the screen on, app front and center, would the voice reliably speak and the app not either shut down or leap around unpredictably. On to another app..Version: 3.6.8

Used to be goodI used to love this app as it’s helped me get back into shape multiple times after falling out of running for a bit. However, since I started using it again this time it’s been no help at all. I’m just staring week 3, and already 4 times it’s just completely crashed on me. When I go to reopen the app, hoping to have at least an idea where it died, there’s not even anything showing I actually started the workout. This is frustrating for tracking progress I’ve made, which is one reason I really like this app, but it also totally disrupts my workout. When it crashes I’m not always sure how far I am into my workout, as I don’t watch it while I’m running and just listen to cues. It’s also frustrating because I then have to completely stop the run to try and figure out where I was at and get started again, which completely messes up my pace. Like I said, I used to completely love this app and would have gave it 5 stars. But at this point with all the glitching I wish I would have just gone with a different running app..Version: 4.5.3

Great Program but Sound IssuesI bought this app a few years back to prep for a 5k and I am starting again from scratch. The program is very well thought out and planned but the software has become problematic as IOS has progressed. When the voice comes on to tell you to run walk etc., music volume is supposed to attenuate so you can hear the instructions. Unfortunately in recent releases the music does not return to normal volume. For the remainder of the run, you are to approximately 50% of your total volume. In addition, the voice giving instructions sometimes forgets instructions such as the halfway point. This is an outstanding program otherwise. If this is corrected, I will change my review to five stars but this is a big enough issue that I think it drastically affects the usability and value of the app..Version: 3.6.8

The programs works & the app is pretty goodI’ve used the app and program to go from the couch to my first 5k. If you follow the app, you’ll be surprised at how easy it comes. What I like: - it works - app is simple to use What I don’t like: - there’s no easy way to restart the program. It always defaults to your furthest progress. I.e., if you finish the program once, but want to restart every time you open the app, it takes you to the “free run, unlimited time,” which is the last run of the program. You can delete your whole history and start over, but I’d like to see a middle option. - I’d love to be able to turn off the “hi, I’m Contstance. I completed ...” start of every run! - As others have mentioned, the interface with Apple Watch is problematic. I always have to use the phone. - As others have mentioned, the volume can be variable on a run, and it didn’t used to be that way. I frequently don’t hear cues for “walk” or “run.”.Version: 4.5.4

Don’t stop the music!This app provides a good training program. Two annoying problems, the app will get one star back for each one fixed: 1. I did *not* give your app permission to access my music and media. When I start a workout the app advances to the next song in the active playlist running in the background on Apple’s Music app. When the app determines that I have finished my workout by time elapsed it stops the Music app. Couch to 5K is not a music app, it is a workout app. Leave my music and playlists alone! 2. I enabled notifications but denied access to my music and media. Every time the app starts it insists that I enable notifications in order to get background alerts. Stupid, annoying bug..Version: 4.1.2

Good but lacking things to make it great!This app does the basics just fine. Tracks my run. Gives “encouragement” if you want plus badges when completing goals. Things to be addressed: 1. The music player through the app doesn’t allow me to shuffle my chosen playlist. Therefore, it isn’t useable to me. 2. When it sends notification of the next step (jog,walk, etc.) it should make all other apps drop volume. It does not. Many of my other apps do this. Why can’t this one? 3. Apple Watch app. It seems that every time I go to look at my status on my watch it is reloading or telling me to start a workout on the phone app first. I am in the middle of my run. It is working!!.Version: 4.5.3

Doesn't worth the moneyCons: It doesn't send you the voice commands unless it's always active on the screen, while you run you cannot state at the mobile screen instead you keep it in there pocket. It only sends the text notification if the phone is locked. I bought this because of the Apple watch support, again here the app on the watch doesn't stay on top of you want to check your progress. You would need to manually press the buttons and switch it. You can't just use the Apple watch alone, it doesn't work, you still need to carry your phone while running. Think about you keeping your 7" phone in your pocket during workout. If you don't carry the phone while workout it doesn't record anything then you will have to use some other app like Nike+ (free app) to track and manually log there distance and time, BS right? You cannot start the workout from Apple watch, you should start from phone, carry the phone, keep staring at the screen all the time. I don't know what they meant by saying Apple watch support. Pros: Apple watch sends a vibration for every step. However this also sends vibration when you're halfway this confuses if you don't keep unlocking the Apple watch and check what the text says, which is a tedious task during a workout session. It tracks the GPS, logs the miles, share social but I never let it access my fb though. Conclusion: Doesn't worth for a paid app..Version: 3.7.0

Awesome, until just nowWasn’t able to run more than 30 seconds before. It eases you into more running time, and before you know it, you’re running 10, 20+ mins. Never had a problem with this app, until a few mins ago I had finished the main portion and just moved into the cool down... and the app completely crashed. Without saving my progress. That’s some bs. When I clicked App Support, it sent me to a website and I could not find the app support section. So now I’m just letting the daily run go through again without actually running so I can at least move forward next time. Annoying. Hoping it’s a one time thing..Version: 4.2.0

GPS is not accurateThis is my second time completing the C25k program. First time, worked like a charm. Truly does what it says - takes you from no running endurance to being able to easily run 30+ minutes straight. However, this time I am not pleased with how the app itself works. I’m only on week 2, and I’ve had one workout just stop recording during the cool-down (I opened the app back up and it said “Start Workout” when I had already been running for 20 minutes). Furthermore, three of my workouts have had the GPS glitch so it records the same stats (miles and pace) for each, when I have gone farther and faster each time. Very frustrating. Hopefully this gets fixed before the 9 weeks are up. :/.Version: 3.7.1

My go to app for returning to runningI have used C5K well before it even became an App on a phone. Putting times into phone click for the intervals and even printing off the program to follow. So I have followed this app since it's inception. The changes throughout that time have just been added bonuses. I only use it when I have had absences from running to get me going again. I have now run 2 half marathons. So no complaints from me. I will be checking out more functions as I use it and review..Version: 3.6.0

Perfect app for a beginner like meReally user friendly, I love the walk/jog interval style. 20 mins of actual running is just enough to push yourself without giving up early so you almost always complete the workout!.Version: 4.5.4

Not a runner but...,Couch to 5 k is doing it for me. Week 6 and up to 4kms and actually loving it. First time I've got past day 3 and u can tell you it works. I am 60 next month and a non runner so please do yourself a favour and give it ago. Definitely achievable..Version: 3.6.8

App is okay, but developer doesn’t fix bugsApp works fine generally, however I reported a bug months ago re the music volume being reduced after the trainer’s halfway message and this has still not be fixed.Version: 4.5.6

ExcellentEasy to use and takes a friendly, fun and gradual approach to running. Would be good to invite specific friends to be a support team vs the limited options to share with existing fb share settings. Also I don't need to select a trainer each time..Version: 4.5.0

Deal breakersDoes not use watch for run tracking..Version: 4.5.0

Not quite as the title suggests...but a good appSo I get that it may just be me, but this app isn't really the starter and trainer for the true couch potato that it suggests... I needed to use a different 'Learn to Run' app for two weeks to even be close to ready for this app! (Yes I'm a 47 year old woman who has never run in her life, so shoot me!) I have just 'graduated' to this app (I love the layout etc and was sooo looking forward to it) but failed to run the last 1 minute stint ( just too shattered!!!) and so I stopped it - and NOTHING registered. "Workout not completed". So I got no info on the work I did do and the pain I put myself through. I'm a touch disappointed. Will try again tomorrow, but I'd like to suggest a true beginner mode if you're going to call the app Couch to 5k..Version: 3.2.1

TerribleConnection with Apple Watch continuously drops out. App freezes. Characters are annoying. Was hoping for an app where I didn’t need to take my phone with me. Waste of money..Version: 4.5.3

Some small issues otherwise very goodPretty good app, some issue where the music drops in volume between the halfway cue and next run/jog cue. Otherwise pretty solid and I’m so far sticking to it.Version: 4.5.4

Love this appPros: seamless use with playlists, clear voice cues once notifications enabled, gets me off the couch!! Cons: none yet I haven’t had the issue with the music stopping after voice cues and I’m on an iPhone XS so maybe it’s more compatible with the new hardware/software.Version: 4.5.3

This app does 'Get you off the couch'A few years ago, I bought this app to give me away to make running consistently a habit. It worked. Thanks to this app, I've been running consistently. Each run I take, I feel like I'm building my endurance and stamina..Version: 4.1.2

With discipline this program works great!Dec 2015: I saw an Apple Watch update and decided to try it to see how this app has come along. I picked an interval heavy session just to test it. Good news is the devs have made solid improvements all around. The audio cues are really improved to what I remember, much clearer and precise. The AW watch app is what'd you expect, a tiny version of the app. Works great to see it on your wrist and not have to remove your phone from pockets or straps. Good to see over a year later my 5star review remains true. Still the best couch to 5k app on the market. Old review: Like all fitness programs, it's going to come down to your willpower to continue and push yourself. So it won't be a miracle. My experience is coming off a back injury that put me out of commission for 7yrs, needless to say I was very unfit when I started! The first week was hell, just minute long jogs with big breaks and I was struggling but I made a very stern decision that I will finish every run even if I started throwing up. What do you know, by the end of week2 you'll feel huge improvements, by the end of week4 you'll feel unstoppable. Now I'm a few days from my first 5k and I really don't have any concerns, it's going to be a breeze. So I guess the point of this story is the app is great, it's quality made and all that jazz. But the most important thing is you, the app will get you running 5k, you just have to let it..Version: 3.4.2

Not worth it when gps doesn’t track run.The first day was fantastic. Motivating with interval advice and a map tracking distance. Could see how far I ran how far I walked, the average pace, just great. Day two got to the end and no info. No data on how far etc so no comparison of increased distance or pace. Day three just completed and yet again no data. Basically I’m paying for an app to say ‘jog’ in my ear every now and then. Totally disappointing when you feel you are trying really hard and there is no way of knowing if it is improving at all. It asks you at the end of the session ‘how far did you run?’, I don’t know! That’s the point of having the app!!!.Version: 4.5.2

Has me running 5 times a week!I've tried this app a few times but until I was in the right mindset I couldn't get through the first week. I'm now smashing it and running for 20 mins straight without even realising it! It would be great if you could use the feed like Facebook to answer questions in a safe environment. The feed seems pointless to me. So happy it's helping my fitness though..Version: 3.5.3

Terrible - Give me myMoney backBought this app from my Apple Watch specifically for use on the watch device. Absolutely useless on the watch and completely unusable. Sick of apps claiming to be watch compatible when clearly they are not. Very unimpressed, give me my Money back.Version: 4.5.4

GreatGreat app- very subtle learning curve which lets even non runners like myself slowly build up a great running pace and level.Version: 4.5.4

Good appI like this app. But at week 7 it's from 8mins of running to 25mins of running. I feel it helps you then throws u in the deep end. It should continue the short intervals. I'm dying after 8mins let alone jumping into a 25min. Should do 10 min then 12min then 15min etc. Also I think when the app closes it should still speak out to run or walk..Version: 3.5.1

Angry runnerI am so cross with this app! I am annoyed that I paid good money for an app that does not perform as promised. I have attempted to listen to my music thru the app and via a separate app and yet still the voice prompts are unreliable. Sometimes all I get is the first prompts and other times I will get about the first half of the workout and then nothing....just the vibration. What's with this?! It's not even that I can't hear the prompt, it just doesn't cut in at all. I have even attempted to pause the music to hear it but nope, no joy! Please fix this major glitch, as this app is pretty good otherwise!.Version: 3.3.2

Getting me movingAfter years of being a true couch potato this app is getting me and my family moving. We’re healthier and happier..Version: 4.5.3

This changed my lifeI had never enjoyed running for its own sake. To me it seemed tedious and boring. This app has changed everything. I have gone from not running since I gave up playing football almost 10 years ago to really loving. These workouts. The encouragement from the app while you are running is good, but what I really live is the tracking and measurement of my improvement. Every workout can be compared like-for-like to every other workout, which really reinforces that sense of achievement as you progress towards your goal. I really recommend this app for people who have never enjoyed running before but want the benefits, because this has changed my life..Version: 2.0.2

Loving it! Fixing my sore knees 🏌🏼‍♂️Three weeks in. I haven’t been confident / able to run even short distances without knee pain due to tight ITBs. Taking it slowly. Stretching well and I’ve only had one episode of knee pain. Took 3 days rest and tonight I was back in and feeling fine. Love the staggered intervals and Runicorn is super encouraging as my coach 🦄 Recommended.Version: 4.5.3

Enjoyable program but requires more featuresI really enjoy the program but features like better Apple Watch functionality and pace prompts during a run would be great..Version: 4.5.6

Love the app but....I have trouble hearing the trainer’s prompts when I have music playing. It would be great if the app dipped the music volume down when the trainer speaks like navigation apps do..Version: 4.5.0

Great but...Great app really enjoying the gradual increase in ability. However when listening to music thru the app, the volume goes right down so you can hear the trainer and takes almost a minute to come back up again. So you either can’t here the music, can’t hear the trainer or get your head blown off. This really needs to be fixed. Otherwise it’s been great..Version: 3.7.0

Good app but could be greatI love this app but suggest the following improvements: - HealthKit integration. It is very frustrating that I have to run a separate app on my Apple Watch to log this exercise. - on an older version of the app you could see what the walk/run segments would be before you started. Now you can only see what’s up next. I like to know what I’m up for and psych myself up before I start. Please bring back this feature..Version: 4.1.2

What have you done?Been using this app for years and I really like it. But I cannot stress this enough - the update where you animated the characters is so ugly. In a world where apps are focusing on design it’s such a strange move to make ugly animated characters. Other annoying things which have changed: - Choosing your trainer every time - No longer displays detailed workout information (exact time running and walking) - just the total time with warmup/cooldown either side.Version: 4.5.0

Great AppHave used C25K several times over the past 7-8years to kickstart me out of a slump. Works like a charm every time.Version: 4.5.4

Great app!I’ve improved so much! It’s great.Version: 4.5.3

What happened...Love the app but after the last update I’ve lost the voiceover and it keeps skipping around all the time. I’ve checked the settings and they are all ok. Have deleted the app and reinstalled, but still doing it. Not good..Version: 3.7.1

Helping me reach my goalsThanks for a fantastic free app! Would be great if you could add in a recommendation of treadmill speeds for beginners. I couldn't finish the first workout and almost gave up until I realized I was going too fast (I found 4.5 for the walk and 6 for the jog more manageable in my first week). Feeling fitter already without being seen in public THANK YOU.Version: 3.5.3

FrustratedI do actually love this program and what the app has potential for. I too like many others have had issues with the voice cues and the mapping and are getting frustrated with this. It would also be nice to be able to log into the active website but that doesn’t seem to be an option neither. having to look for a similar program is annoying but if things do not improve then that is what I’ll have to do. It would be nice if it also integrated into the apple health app too as a workout program..Version: 3.3.2

C25K without the K'sApp works well, but latest update doesn't have an option to measure distance in kms or weight in kgs. I'm in Australia and miles don't mean much to me. You need an option to measure in metric. Otherwise I'll go to another app..Version: 4.1.0

Great appI downloaded this app last night, and did my first session his morning. I haven't exercised much since my youngest son was born (now 4 1/2 years) and was worried if I'd even make it through the session. I was pleasantly surprised that I did, and even though was I feeling blah at the 3/4 way mark, by the time I had my cool down and got home, I was feeling petty good. The prompts and gps worked well for me. My only gripes are that since it's called "couch to 5k" I thought it would at least give me the option to convert into metric distances, instead of just miles. Very disappointed as I don't understand miles at all. Also, would be great if it could tell me how many calories were burned during the session..Version: 3.3.2

Encouraging and DOABLE!Unlike other fitness apps, which seem to be aimed at people who already workout and go running, this one is totally doable. The first week is really easy but also leaves you feeling like you’ve done a workout. You get sweaty and red and your legs hurt a bit afterwards, but you’re not left feeling incapable or like this program is out of reach. Definitely worth the $5!.Version: 4.5.6

DisappointedThat an app that works on the Apple Watch does not allow you to work seperate from your phone. Why would I take my phone with me if I have my cellular Apple Watch on me. Extremely disappointed as this looked like a really promising app..Version: 4.5.3

HealthKit Support desperately neededHealth kit is where all health data is aggregated on iOS, seems crazy to not support it..Version: 4.5.4

It worksI am only 3 weeks into the 9 week program but I can say already it is fantastic. I was super unfit - chained to my desk at work and the couch+laptop combo at home, could barely run for 30 seconds - only 3 weeks later am running in blocks of 3 mins - and did a free run the other day and made it 2.5 km without a break, running a 7 minute mile! Just follow the program, it's so easy. And the music integration and gps tracking are nice features. To the developers: WHY is it called couch to 5k yet seems to only measure in miles? Can we have metric conversion please? Calories burned would be good too!.Version: 3.3.1

Voice and distance issuesIt's a good concept but the voice prompts are unreliable - I can't work out why they stop working sometimes. It's frustrating because it means I walk when I'm supposed to jog and vice versa meaning the log data is skewed. I also have to keep pulling my phone out to check and mess around until I can get the prompts working again, slowing me down and interrupting my pace. I also don't think the measurements are accurate. I ran basically the same route today as yesterday. Yesterday I was disappointed to be told I ran just 7.5 mins per km and a total of 3.5km. Today somehow I logged 4.8 mins per km and 5.5km...?.Version: 3.3.6

Good on the iPhone, horrible on the Apple WatchThe iPhone app is so good - it’s allowing me to start running, which I honestly thought would never happen. That said, the Apple Watch app is so disappointing it actually made me angry. I have the GPS + LTS version Watch, and still I need to have my phone in close range - meaning I can’t go for a run without my phone. The Watch app is basically an extended screen so that you can look at the time left for the current phase without taking out your actual phone from your pocket - not much more than that. It doesn’t even have a proper integration with HealthKit. It makes me wonder why it even exists at all. Massive missed opportunity - I would gladly pay for the app again if I could go for a run just with my watch and no phone..Version: 4.5.0

Best Running AppFollow the voice and you'll be running 5K's before you know it. You can take it at your own pace. Never thought I'd be able to run for over a minute straight but after using this great app I can..Version: 3.6.8

Happy, but ........I love this app and I'm making great progress but I can only run on a treadmill due to injury. I was able to update my distance for the first few weeks but now I can't update my run distance which is disappointing because I was really enjoying watching my overall distance grow. Would love it if you could fix this glitch. Thanks so much for a great app. Michelle..Version: 3.2.1

Inconsistent over the yearsThe problem with this app is sometimes it works perfectly but then it gets updated and something that was functional before stops working. Presently one of those issues is I can’t get the audio cues to cut through the music, something that worked fine before. Have reverted to the podcast for the moment.Version: 4.3.0

Love this app!Love this app! Went from not running to being able to run for 30mins by week 9. Recommend this app. It would be really great if the trainer voice could be louder. Sometimes I miss them meaning I either over run or over walk, or have to look at phone all the time to check to countdown clock..Version: 3.5.1

Not satisfied 😔Might have been a great app when there was no Heathkit and apple watch! 1- It's pointless these days to have an iPhone fitness app with no Heathkit integration. 2- The apple watch app does not work without the phone close to it and that's just so disappointing. Taking my big iPhone 7 plus in a wallet case with me in a 5k run to just work with my apple watch is just so annoying..Version: 4.0.0

Need improvementThanks for the update. Have kms option You got 5 star now :).Version: 4.2.0

Stick to the plan!Nearly at the end of week 7 now and going great. I used to run many years ago and am still very fit from competetive cycling. However, I was worried about knee injuries and so on with running, what with being 65 now! Well I'm sticking religously to the plan, even though I feel like doing more sometimes, and it's going great so far. Looking forward to my next run!.Version: 3.5.1

Latest release is a step back.I did this a few years ago but things went downhill. I recently started again and have been going well. The app is basically pretty good. A few niggles. When selecting music by album you can see album title but not artist, so you get a big list of “Greatest Hits”. The music starts quiet then explodes when you get the first notification, so you have to try to turn it down as you run. If you want to share at the end you can’t review your time and distance before you do. The latest release has not only not fixed these, it has decided that since I have completed the program before, it will default to “free run”. It used to default to the next run after the latest one I completed, i.e. if I last did week 3 run 2, it would default to week 3 run 3 even though I did it already (in 2014). This means I need to go into the log to check which run is next. Again, annoying. Otherwise it seems to do what it says quite well..Version: 3.7.1

Easy to follow and good tracking of progressThis app is based on the popular couch to 5k program. It has a range of “coaches” to choose from and works really well. My only criticism is it tells you not long now when you still have about a 1/3 of the workout to go. So painful! I only want to hear that in my last 2 minutes. Also note you can get the c25k program for free from the NHS by downloading their podcast. But if you want in app form, this one is good value and tracks your workouts well..Version: 4.5.6

So good!Such a great way to ease back into running. Really gentle start which has avoided injury and mental fear!! So happy to be back exercising after 6 years and 2 kids 👌.Version: 4.1.2

I love this app!Awesome app!!! Honestly week 1 and I could hardly run the 1 min intervals but I stuck with it and just finished week 6 with a 22 min run and I feel amazing! Can't wait to run the 5k. I just bought the 5k to 10k app in anticipation of finishing this one before Christmas but I am slightly disappointed as my chosen trainer for the couch to 5k was Johnny Dead (the zombie trainer) he made my workouts awesome and he's not available in the10k version..Version: 2.0.5
