I am so happy to have this app. I have gone from finding 1 minute of running a challenge to running for 5 mins in 4 weeks. It's absolutely amazing in my opinion. The lady is really calm and very supportive. I actually felt like she was there, just for me. Im about to go into week 5. No problem at all. Chuffed to bits.

Good app missing some functionality This app does what it needs to do and it does it well, but there are definitely some missing features that might make you not buy this app: - Still no GPS support (you have no idea how far you run) - No expanded version to move onto a 10K - Facebook functionality is broken if you skip a day (will not correctly display the day for your next run) The app is good, but really, some additional coding and it could turn into a great app.
