    "To be honest, this works more than just a workout app for me. Yes, you can connect it to different fitness tracker but it doesn't stop there. It also serves as my calorie tracker for every meal that I eat every day. I use my iphone to scan the barcode of the food I buy :)"

    "What a fun and unique way to get that jog going! As a fan of The Walking Dead imagining I'm in the post apocalyptic nightmare of my dreams is the perfect way to get me moving. It's eerie how close the sounds are in my ear and sometimes I end up having to do a double take just to make sure I'm actually still in a zombie free world. It's good motivation and definitely has me prepared for when the world ends. "

    "I really like PumpUp's tracking features and that I can share my fitness updates without feeling like I'm bragging. It's great to have that kind of encouragement. But the coaching feature doesn't really feel effective since I'm more motivated when I have real-life fitness instructors."

    "I was initially impressed by this app, but now it doesn't seem to working correctly. I also dislike all of the work I have to put into making it save settings. I just want a simple tracking app which doesn't take more than a run's worth of time to set. Why spend so much time setting stuff up? And there's a subscription service available, but it didn't seem to be worth it to me. "
