Your app has been a constant encouragement on the journey. Took me from nothing to running a 5k. Looking forward to more.
Personalized Voice Coaching
App will alert you, using clear voice, when you need to change pace or when you reach halfway point (plus other configurable options).
GPS Location & Pedometer
It’s always nicer to run outside, where we use GPS to track your speed and distance. If you have iPhone 5s or newer though – you can also run on treadmill using built-in pedometer to track your distance.
Heart Rate Monitor
If you have a heart rate monitor device based on Bluetooth Smart (LE, 4.0), Run 5k will use it effortlessly during the run. You can then compare your pace and HR for each run and as you progress through the program.
Apple Health ready
If you grant access to Apple Health, you can save your workout and heart rate data into it, plus avoid manual input of calorie-related parameters.
Use the Apple Watch as both remote view (Glance is your friend) and remote controller – start, pause/continue and stop&save your run.
iPhone 6 and 6 Plus
Entire app is usable in both portrait and landscape on any iPhone running iOS 8.
If you run with your iPhone in pocket and want to check your progress from time to time – this is for you. Real-time running info accessible from lock screen.
Animated Run View
Real-time visual feedback of your current pace, distance and heart rate (if you have using compatible HRM). Best used when iPhone is worn using an arm band.
Clear Progress 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).
Examine important details 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 any music or podcast app you already use. App will fade-out the music volume when pace changes are spoken and fade-in afterwards.
Brag about your progress on Facebook, Twitter and more.
Made for Modern iOS
Built from ground-up for modern iOS user interface, with lots of custom animations that help make the app a joy to use.
I like the heart rate feature because it really helps to tell you if you are getting better at running.

Of all the 5K apps I like this one the best. Very user friendly, easy to read.
