Internet & data usage
Its best used with those who have beginners fitness levels, good for those needing to reduce sedentary gaming time or increase physical fitness. Also, the 'audio adventure' style app gives players a chance to 'share' their results online for added motivation and celebration of achievements.
This is a really fun app to help motivate and keep you on track when you're out running or doing general exercise. I would use it to help keep me motivated and amused.
I didn't like...
I disliked that there were no clear instructions as to how to get the app to play your playlist rather then have radio silence at times.
The app made running much more enjoyable and exciting, as well as being very progressive. Compared to the free app, it was designed specifically for those who don't run as much (or at all) and provides excellent motivation through the story line (though it was a bit basic). I found that the variation in running made it much easier to achieve distance and rhythm. App was simple but very well thought out.
I didn't like...
Compared to the free app, it doesn't have as much of a story line which made it more interesting. Also, I wasn't sure whether it could be integrated into the free app or not, especially since you can progress in the free app via a game. Setting up music along with it seemed a bit out of the way to find and it isn't fantastic if you're using a playlist. Would've like it if you choose which step you could begin on, if you're not a complete beginner or find the earlier steps too easy.
