Master the Couch to 5K (also known as C25K) training program with this app, which prompts you through your 5K training. Choose a playlist from your music selection, and just get running.

- C25K Couch to 5K
- Zero to 10K*
- Five to 10K*
- 5K improver - Interval training
- 10K event training

- Runs in BACKGROUND MODE
- Prompts you to change pace while working through the Couch to 5K training program.

I have been getting a bit sluggish lately and tired of my training routines. I thought about running, but at 66 yrs young, perhaps this might be a bit much. I installed the C25k free version to try it out, and decided this might be just what I needed to get started. I uploaded some of my favorite music and purchased the full version. I really enjoy the program and the time flies while listening to my favs. I especially like that I can sync my Polar heart rate monitor to the program and then upload the workout to my Polar progress chart. Can't beat it for the price it is well worth it. I love the instant downloads through
Amazon, just one click and it's on my phone which is registered with Amazon. Amazon makes everything so easy.

First up, I intend to purchase the full version of this, and will post the same review on the $1.60 version. I just now realized that this is a FULL FEATURED trial, and with that said it makes sense why I couldn't find the difference between the two.

Second thing. I have did the couch-2-5k program before, and a different style training program in the past. So i've been down this road before. I'm sort of doing the couch to 5k, to couch, to 5k, to couch, to 5k. Confusing enough? OK! For this round I'm getting back into the swing of it, and since I have a relatively new *droid style phone I would give it a shot. I downloaded the official C25K app to compare. This one beats it easily, here is why. Also I'll mention some things here that you may care about, but not for me (take it or leave it).

Pros:
Very simple interface
Useful audio prompts
Useful stats
Interesting mapping program

Take it or leave it:
Facebook / Twitter integration (I don't want folks to know what i'm doing on these)
AchieveMint Rewards (I believe that this could be cool, but think it has some privacy concerns for me)

Cons:
Audio Controls: I really do not care for the audio controls. It seems "clunky" to me and not intuitive. When you are doing your run, the stats pause the music and call out your time and distance (GOOD), but when your run is over, music just stops. I would prefer to have it integrate better with an external player, OR use my iPOD instead. This results in -.75 star for me, enough to take it down to a 4 on my official rating.

Ads: I'm using the free version, so those are annoying. I HOPE they are not displayed in the full paid program.

Overall: I like the program, its worth it to me to pay the $1.

I like the program Couck to 5K. For those who are new to running it is an easy program to follow as you build up your endurance. This app is easy to use. It guides you through each step. I like that I didn't have to watch the clock as I moved through the program. The app would tell me when to stop and start each segment. I only have the free version though so I can only use the first two weeks before I need to upgrade to the paid version.

Pretty basic app. Does what it says. It's a little clunky to add a custom run, but I was able to figure it out after a few tries. The voice instructions are clear & way to understand. I've used it a week and plan to continue using it.

It works well on LG Connect 4G phone. Music played on Amazon MP3 is paused for the interval changes and then starts up.

When you log onto rundouble.com you can see your running route on a google map with the intervals highlighted. At this point, the runs are short but as it has options for 10k and free runs this could be a useful feature. Maybe useful for me in several months.

I really like this. It takes all the guesswork out of knowing when to run and when to walk. Previously, I had to use a stopwatch, and I gave up on my quest to run pretty quickly. This is a life saver!

I love this app. The half-way point feature is perfect so you don't have to plan/map out your runs. When I first started using this app I had a difficult time running a mile, this app helped me train for my 1st half-marathon 2 years ago. I am about to train for my 2nd half marathon and I know as long as I follow the plan I will be able to finish with a smile on my face.

This gradual training program REALLY works. And I always used to say "gravity is too strong for me!" Granted, I let myself repeat days, and even weeks, until I felt ready to move on, and yeah, most people still pass me, but I did it! I finished the 5K!
