Criminally expensive So the basic functionality is quite good, though you really pay through the nose for the full app. Its one of the most expensive apps of its kind and has certainly priced itself out of my wallet.

Great app, superb support This is now my favorite app on my phone. Helps keep me motivated with the saved workouts and graphs. Had an issue when I updated to kitkat which Dan sorted out with a new release within 24 hours - superb! Will be upgrading to the paid functionality just to support this app. Brilliant all round.
