C25K® 5K Trainer - Latest Quality Issues

Good except you hassle me for a review every time I finish a work out. I'm paying for the app, please stop that

Shady privacy practices
Shady privacy practices, false claims about “opt out” and dark UI patterns. Tried to trick you into consent and even the back button on the consent setting is disabled. YUCK. No thanks. Deleted within 5 min of downloading.

Too many ads
I used this many years ago and there were no ads or having to pay for anything.

Has been good in the past, but suddenly the voice prompts are very delayed

Good app. But do I have to pay for it in a few days? I have this app for 4 days right now. But it works!

Just finished the last workout. The app itself works well on my phone, I've never had it glitch or not play. The GPS does not work at all though. For a free app it, it was excellent. The workouts did their job, I went from never running 8 weeks ago to being able to run a 5k today so I am very happy. The first 4 weeks are really easy going and then week 5 and on are a steep increase. The app also expected me to be running 10 minute miles at week 5 and I'm still not doing that after 8 weeks.

It stopped last 2 times during the cool down phase and lost my progress. It happened before several times during the run... Very frustrating

No one-time purchase options
In the App Store it shows you can pay one time to add Apple Watch functionality. Within the app they only offer the subscription option. I don’t see the point of paying yearly for my Watch to be able to mirror my phone but sure $5 one-time makes sense. Emailed support back towards the middle of the month and never even heard back but I’m sure they would argue the subscription model helps to support app development and support. As a last ditch effort, I signed up for the subscription trial and it won’t even pair with my Watch. It says to launch the app on the phone which it was - tried force quitting and restarting, same error.

Notifications that won’t clear
This review actually has nothing to do with the actual 5K training portion of the app… But the app itself has notifications and there’s no way to turn them off and it’s super annoying so I deleted the app and will no longer use it for that fact alone.
