Simple C25K

Simple C25K


Simple C25K is a very simple, free and open source application that can be used to follow Josh Clark's famous 'Couch to 5k' running plan. After every interval the phone will vibrate and beep to let you know you have to start or stop running. The application can run entirely in the background so playing your own music during your exercise will not be a problem.

If you have any suggestions for improvement of this application or if you have problems using it send me an email and I'll see what I can do.


Description of the permissions used:

Perfect for newbies So simple and just right. It helped me when I first started out jogging on a regular basis.

Short & sweet Simple app that doesn't require all the permissions in the world. Does everything it should. It would be nice if you could just check a day off.

Easy to use Super easy to use app. I love that it beeps every time and congratulates you on finishing the workout.
