A decent app
I am running my first half marathon in May and am using this to help train. The workout schedule provides increasing duration over the time frame. The few bugs about it are: 1. It doesn't keep track of my history, can't figure out why 2. The voice prompts start with the change in the workout - it would be better if it prompted prior to the change and then countdown 3-2-1 now. 3. There is no voice prompt at the completion of the workout letting you know you are finished. Other than those bugs, it's not a bad app to start your training.

Good schedule, crappy programming
As a beginner, the cues/tips on the schedule are great. It's encouraging because it feels manageable too. That said, this app doesn't save my run data, which I really want/need if I'm going to be serious about running. To me, if I pay for an app (ESP over $.99), I shouldn't have to have another app running to verify my run. I will use it because the schedule works, but I'll use run keeper in the background since the app doesn't actually give me any feedback at all.

With a generic name like 'Half marathon trainer' I really expected more. This app is simply a collection of workouts laid out on a 12 week schedule. If you have more or less time, this thing is kind of pointless. Also I see no way to clear out history to start new trials. Wish list for features: Save stats - pace and times for previous training runs. This helps with improving PR times. Make this savable per session. Deadline - the curve is well known. You start low miles and increase over time and taper off approaching the event. Allow it so a user can input start date and event date. Use that to calculate a training schedule. Most people give themselves much more or much less time than 12 weeks. Those are key features I was looking for. This app is too simple for the $2 price tag. Expected a little more depth. Full disclosure: I have not used the app and only browsed the interface to be disappointed by the lack of features.

Frustrated beyond belief!
I can not hear the prompts when I'm listening to music through the ap. I went to my sounds settings and I can't find anywhere where you can increase the volume. Very frustrating!! Also after I finish a run I go to my history and its not there!!! Let me know if anyone knows how to fix this!

Doesn't work with my Bluetooth earbuds
I generally like this app, but it doesn't work with my Bluetooth earbuds. Every time the timer switches from jog to walk, it cuts off my feed from the earbuds. Would give this a 5/5 if you guys could fix that!

Voice training
You can't hear the voice trainer telling you when to run or walk if you're listening to your music ;(
