What I like: Ive never run before and this got me going. Its a graded program that I wouldnt otherwise have started.
What I dont like: the app is just a cookie cutter product. As stated, the graded increase in effort is great.
However there is little else to this product. As one increases duration and effort I would like some feedback in the app. It would be really nice to have notifications when one is, say, half way through a segment. Or perhaps a countdown forthe last couple of minutes...just a comment like two minutes to go so one has an idea where we are at.
I find myself pulling out my phone to check my progress.
If some people dont want that, the app could allow it to be turned off
As it is now, there is a voice that says half way in the workout once at about 14 minutes and thats it.
Otherwise all you get is run or walk .
I think this omission is plain laziness on the part of the vendor. Lots of free apps provide more feedback.
In sum: its worth the $3 because it got me going, but only 3 stars for lack off effort on their part.
