Simple, no frills. A modified timer. Beeps to run, beeps to walk. Double beeps for done. Runs behind music app no problem.
Trust the beeps they'll get you there. Best app for helping you get to that 5k run <3 Loved it so much I've downloaded their C210K app (y)
Good, but some issues
Had issues where time would reset when screen orientation changes, mostly during warmup on my nexus 7. Normally have no issues and the app performs as expected. Would be 5 stars if this issue gets resolved.
Exactly what i was looking for. Works great. One improvement would be a way to reset the check list.
I tried a few other running apps before this was was recommended and it was just what I was looking for, no talking to interrupt your music just clear loud beeps when you need to change pace.
This is a very simple app--as advertised. Beeps the same way every time to change the pace, so you have to remember where you are in the rotation for walking v. running. I don't always remember, but hey--I'm out, I'm running, which is something I haven't done since college cross country, and since it prompts me, I'm less likely to find an excuse not to run. Like other reviewers, I wish it would have a halfway point beep, and I'd love it if it would say "run" or "walk" (or alternate the type of beeping) instead of just beeping the same each time, but it's a truly simple app that works as advertised and that's good enough for me. Tech support is great, too--I had a totally stupid question (wouldn't beep--darn media volume was off but I couldn't figure that out on my own) but the developer responded within an hour or so to my email and was very polite and helpful. I have a Droid 4 and it works well with it. Thanks for the app!
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.
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.

Just what I was looking for.
Only thing missing is a special notification when half way done so I know when to turn around and head home. Thanks!!!
Best c25k app
It is the only c25k app that works for me. It doesn't mess up. Every time you go from run to walk you hear a loud beep. This is a really good simple app.
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.
Great for starters!
The c25k program itself is great and this app is so helpful. Just turn on your favorite running music and press the start button. I was wary I wouldn't hear the beep for the transition, so I was diligently eyeing the app during the warm up. But once the first transition came, the beep was very clear. It makes the idea of running less daunting. Once you get in rhythm, its just listening to music and waiting for the beep. So happy I found this app.
This has been a great help in getting me started for my 1st 5k. Wish it had a pedometer though.
I really like this app.
Easy to use, doesn't suck up a ton of power. Great for my needs. Using on my Samsung Galaxy s3. Just installed on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 3.
Does what it says on the tin
Really useful, no-frills app that gets the job done. Bravo! I particularly like how you can background it and listen to music at the same time.
Does exactly what it says it will. No ads, really simple, love it! Only extra which would be great would be an alert half way through so you know how long you have to go and can turn around if necessary.
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.
I made it!
This is a great simple app. Caught me out when I got a phone call during my run and didn't manage to resume properly.
Nice and simple. I used it with Run Keeper to fully track my runs, but this was perfect for keeping me on track. Just did my first 5k under 30 mins thanks to this.
Please add audible human voice such as "Start Running"
Simple and easy to use.
Simple and easy to use, and its free! Yep no matter how much you pay for an excercise app, it won't make you sexy! Free apps rules!
No nonsense solution
No ads, no unnecessary permissions and does exactly what it says. Couldn't ask for better!
Good job guys
HTC One: Great app, especially for free. Does exactly what it's supposed to. If it had GPS tracking, distance and calorie stats it would be perfect. Still gets 5 stars from me for doing what it's supposed to and not interfering with my playlists.
Simple & reliable
Does the job. Not bells or whistles. Exactly what I was looking for. I can run whilst using this app, runtastic to map my route & listen to my tunes! My only concern (hence the 4 stars) is the app quite often crashes when you exit after a running session. No biggy!
Simple, functional, and actually free!
Title says it all. No "pro" version, ads or bloat, does exactly what it says on the tin.
Used to run/jog without a plan, soon would get pains and give up...self confidence dented more and more each time. C25K has made all the difference. Starting with low demand walking-jogging routines and gradually increasing the duration of jogging has built up my stamina and got me to *like* exercising - I now even jog in the rain and in the dark! I can listen to my phone's music/radio in the background thanks to the beeps! Honest permissions too. 5 out of 5 to the developers, very grateful, THANKS!
Brilliant brilliant app
Simple and very effective. Doesn't claim to be able to do what it can't. Simple bleeps overlay any music player. Love it.
Great c25k companion
Works as advertised and is a good tool to follow the c25k program while also allowing you to listen to music and run thanks to the distinctive beeps.

Easy to use
Super easy to use app. I love that it beeps every time and congratulates you on finishing the workout.
App is fine, it does the job. I wish it had a half-way alert so I know when to turn around and head home. I like that it's simple and there are NO ADS to accidentally click on.
Just about perfect in its simplicity. I only with there was an option to mark days as completed. I've done a few without my phone, and the mission check marks bum me our :)
