I’ve been very happy with the app. Worth the few bucks not to have to track things manually. The only issue I’ve encountered is that if you accidentally close the app or it crashes, there is no way to manually adjust the total time you’ve run. You can manually adjust distance, but then the time stays the same and it calculates your pace as being much higher than it was. If not for this issue, I would give it 5 stars.

The latest release of this date does not have the enable gps setting in workout options. Cannot calc distance.

Pros: - friendly ui, few steps to getting started - seems a solid GPS tracking and recording system Cons: - volume on playlist drops when instruction comes on but doesn’t always return to previous volume -apple watch app not good. You need the phone nearby to start and use it.

GPS is a little wonky but works for getting back into running!

2nd time I use this in 6 years Love the system And I’m a strength and Conditioning coach for over 25 years !! My only issue why I’m not giving 4 or 5 stars is that the coaching volume can barely be heard over the music or podcast Causing miss timing in the intervals Fix that and I’ll re do this review with more stars Thx Curd Hos

Customer Feedback:
"The popular Couch to 5K app helps new runners avoid injury from doing too much, too soon."
—Runners World, June 2012

"It's ridiculously easy to use (it's hard not to, as you just do what you're told) and it's fantastic that you have an encouraging voice talking you through things."
—Engadget, June 2012

"’s Couch to 5K is one of my favorite… apps. With its customizable features, interactivity, and well-rounded interface, I may actually stay off the couch this time."
—148Apps, October 2011

"I knew as soon as I decided to start the Couch to 5K program that I would need something to keep me accountable—not just to showing up for my training, but to actually doing it properly. Of course there’s an app for that."
—CalorieLab, April 2012

"If you have been struggling to get your buns off the couch and somewhat in shape before the summer hits, training for a 5K is not a bad way to start. If you are looking for a program to help get you there, then the “Couch to 5K” running plan by CoolRunning is probably your best bet if you haven’t done an ounce of athletic activity for a number of years."
—Droid Life, April 2012

Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

The Couch to 5K coach you select talks to you during your workouts. To save your battery, Couch to 5K sends audio notifications when your screen is locked or another app is in use.

To be sure you hear the coach during your workout, please do the following:
• Turn on Notifications permissions
• Turn on the hardware ring/silent switch (no red showing)
• Turn your ringer volume up
• Turn off Do Not Disturb (swipe up for Control Panel and the moon button should not be white)
• Within the app, in Settings > Workout Options, be sure the Trainer Volume is up

Without granting notification permissions, during a workout you can click the lock icon at the top left to keep the app active and still hear the coach.

For support please contact us at: We would love to hear from you.

Once you purchase the app, it is yours to keep. It does not expire after 9 weeks.
