iOS 7 ready

Made for iOS 6, works beautifully on iOS 7. Works on iPhone 3GS or newer, but really shines on iPhone 5, 5c and 5s.

Voice coaching

App will alert you, using clear male or female voice, when you need to change pace or when you reach halfway point (plus other configurable options)

Animated run view

Real-time visual feedback of your current pace and distance. This feature is based on GPS location services, thus available on iPhones only.

Heart rate monitor

Heart rate monitoring using any Bluetooth 4.0 based device (on iPhone 4S, 5, 5C and 5S).

Clear overview

Easy to see current progress and what’s ahead. For upcoming runs, you’ll see the description; for past runs you will see the most important details: distance covered, average and max pace (or speed).

Extensive details

Examine each second of each run - follow the pace/speed changes, heart rate rhythm, how much calories you burned and see the map of the entire run.

Run with music

Works great with custom-made playlist or just about any other music or podcast app you prefer. App will fade-out the music volume when pace changes are spoken and fade in afterwards.
