Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

The Couch to 5K coach you select talks to you during your workouts. To save your battery, Couch to 5K sends audio notifications when your screen is locked or another app is in use.

To be sure you hear the coach during your workout, please do the following:
• Turn on Notifications permissions
• Turn on the hardware ring/silent switch (no red showing)
• Turn your ringer volume up
• Turn off Do Not Disturb (swipe up for Control Panel and the moon button should not be white)
• Within the app, in Settings > Workout Options, be sure the Trainer Volume is up

Without granting notification permissions, during a workout you can click the lock icon at the top left to keep the app active and still hear the coach.

For support please contact us at: [email protected] We would love to hear from you.

—CalorieLab, April 2012

"If you have been struggling to get your buns off the couch and somewhat in shape before the summer hits, training for a 5K is not a bad way to start. If you are looking for a program to help get you there, then the “Couch to 5K” running plan by CoolRunning is probably your best bet if you haven’t done an ounce of athletic activity for a number of years."

Couch to 5K® - Run training Pros

Best Running AppFollow the voice and you'll be running 5K's before you know it. You can take it at your own pace. Never thought I'd be able to run for over a minute straight but after using this great app I can..CHrysalisVersion: 3.6.8

The coaching is terrific! The rest of the app is useless...This is the running app that has motivated me and prepared me for running a 5k. The workouts are simple and gradually increase more running time. I am now able to focus more on pacing myself and being able to run longer. I love love love the workouts! The one thing that did bum me out is all of the glitches with the rest of the app. I cannot see anything other than my personal log and have tried to sign in by creating a profile and use my Facebook, but all I get is an error message when trying to access articles, events, and friends..WeeddopemanVersion: 4.2.0
