This helps me so much
I needed to move around laying around felt awful. so I started two months ago just walking around the neighborhood I would count laps the most was 4 laps I have a big area to cover lol. Three weeks in and I started to get worried about getting bored with it. I would to Jurassic Park Audio book that goes so far and I know music would not motivate me to push me far. Then I remember someone saying about you hearing zombies chase you in your ear I'm thinking yeah I sure don't want to get eaten. I tried it for free that gave me five missions and when I realized it's a story I was so hooked. After the free missions were done I payed for the year 19.99. I did that because I knew I'll be using this a lot I love felling that I'm apart of the story. Thinking zombies and other people are out there trying to get me love it. This post marks 9 weeks of walking and speed walking and with this app five weeks this app helps me push harder to survive from the dead and this is helping me write more after every mission I write a personal log by runner 5 on what was going through my head while doing the missions on Twitter and Facebook I so enjoying to that. This is so worth my money and time keep up with the great stories. 🖖🏻
I wish I could give it six stars to start
I used the zombies 5k app to go from
Couch to five k. I am still finishing up season one of the missions because I enjoy trying all the other parts of the app like the interval training. I often laugh when I listen on my runs. And twice I have cried. Yep seriously started crying during two particularly sad scenes. My favorite app.
Apple Watch App doesn't connect
By Former whole living subscriber
I really like this exercise app and I upgraded and paid for a membership. The watch app on the other hand is buggy. It doesn't always connect to my phone and yesterday I couldn't get it to stop a run. I stopped it on my phone but didn't realize the workout was still logging on my watch until an hour and all that incorrect 60 minutes was added to my exercise and movement goals. Since I can't correct the error it will mess up my goal. I'm hesitant to use the watch app in the future because of this.
I'd give 5 stars but...
Let me start off by saying I hate running. The only time I run is too the bathroom or if I'm getting chased. That's why I thought this app was so great for me. I love zombies and getting chased is fun, when its a game!
However, chases are unpredictable. Three missions in a row, I'll get 2-4 chases in 30min. Awesome! The the next five missions I don't get chased at all. Not sure if it's a bug or just that random. But I wish if I had chases on, I'd at least get chased once each mission.
I'm removing a star because the in-app music fails 99% of the time. My music is downloaded to the phone, in a playlist, following all the recommendations, and it never works. If it does, it sticks to one song and repeats.

Awesome app for running. Combines story with fitness flawlessly. It makes running more interesting for those just starting off and also seasoned runners. The only thing I really want from this app is the ability to link it to my Fitbit. Get the app and go run!
Love love love this app!
This app is so amazing! I've never been this motivated to run. Six to start is quick to respond to mails, there is groups on twitter and Facebook and even some unofficial ones with 5's who just want to share their runs! It's like watching a series that you can't stop, but you have to keep running while watching!!!! Nothing short of fantastic!
Stopped progress at lock screen
This app seemed like it would be so fun and motivational. I am not an avid runner, so I grabbed this app to help me look forward to running.
I used the app for one run and have since deleted it. I only intended to run 2 mi, which is a lot for me. First, it didn't start my music after the first scene. I set it to access a playlist directly through the app. When that failed, I started the music through the music app. When I returned to this app, it had exited the mission, resetting it to the beginning.
I started the mission again, this time setting the music to "external," but every time the phone locked, the app exited and reset the mission again - three times before I just quit and finished my run.
I am so mad that not only did I miss progressing in the mission, but my run wasn't even tracked at all. Going back to the fantastic Nike Run app now. Forget this mess! 😡

I'm a big fan of this app. Provides a fun way to exercise. I hope they find a way to sync with Fitbit users. That be pretty awesome
I used to love this app
I have two major complaints and some minor ones. One of the major ones is no zombies chase you if you don't fall into the range of the game. I think those of us that are slower should get chased too. 2nd big complaint is unless you buy their passes you can only download only 1 mission per week. Which I don't like but ok. Problem is all the downloaded games don't move with you when you have new phone. I had downloaded about 15 missions to complete on long practice for marathon and all gone. 😡

Not lowering music during mission updates. It's like you're trying to make it worse. AND ITS PAUSING MID RUN AGAIN!!!!!!!!
I used to hate zombie themes
I've had this app for a long time but only recently found my 'stride'. I am a happy addict and I can't praise Six to Start enough for their exemplary work on this entertaining, motivating, and well constructed app. Thanks, StS, for the missions I've run and the happy anticipation of miles ahead.
Finally a way to make working out fun!!
