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.

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

Functional, free, and easy to use I have used this app through all the training weeks and it's great. As the description states you can listen to something else and hear momentary beeps when you're supposed to change activity from walking to running and vice versa. The screen displays instructions if you want to glance down and read them; the screen also shows a countdown timer for how many minutes are left in your workout. I've not noticed any significant drain on battery when using the app, so it's clean, simple and straightforward. It is free and doesn't ask you to buy add-ons, so it's just great. I am going to start over with week 1 of the training program after a less active time, so I decided to stop by and write my review.

Simple and excellent Would love a halfway there (turnaround) sound, and a way to selectively uncheck completed runs (without clearing all data in android's app mgr), but am more than willing to overlook these for SIIMPLE and small app footprint. App runs so reliably in background w/ music player etc. App is is so reliable. Best c25k I've seen. Thank you.

Simple, effective Runs independent of anything else, simple beeps to let you know to change. No silly login required, no useless features, does exactly what it's supposed to and nothing more.
