Does its job and does it well, but one suggestion...
Great app and seamless to use. My only suggestion and wishlist for this app would be to add 6k and 8k to the list of common distances (as I believe the 1600 and 1500 were added not that long ago?) as to make it a little easier instead of having to custom distance those every time for the collegiate users out there and these being two standard cross country distances. Otherwise thank you for all the hard work you’ve put into making this app what it is!

Cannot see definitions
This app doesn’t allow you to see their definitions of their workouts, making the times it calculates almost useless. If this would be fixed I would rate it a 5! They got back to me and fixed the problem. 5/5

VDOT Calculator
It may not be perfect, and in some ways dependent on the training you do. But it does give some important clues on training and ability. It is an excellent tool, even though at times imperfect in its results.

Could use 10-miler race distance.
If you beed space, scrap either 3200 or 2-Mile. :-) Thank you!

Has some bugs
You can’t see anything beyond 200 and 400m training results (app won’t let you scroll through the table) and when you click on links for definitions of Threshold, Marathon, etc., it takes you to a page, gives you the first part of each definition and ends in “...” with no ability to see the full definition.

Used to be great
This app used to be my go-to for running based calculations. But the most recent update (Aug 2020) limits you to 3 calculations per day unless you upgrade to the not-so-cheap premium version. Sorry, but there are other free apps out there to do simple arithmetic. Deleted.

Almost there
If only it would remember the data and not have you enter it every time you open the app.... Update: fixed one thing, broke a few more. Plus added "pro" for smth that was there before.... Too bad. Had such potential, but it's time to delete it. Adios!

Custom distance doesn’t support metric.
Nice App; but, tried to get result for a recent 8K which is a custom distance and app only has “mi” without ability to change.

Know your true ability
Downloads & boots up fast, simple to use and understand. I use Dr. Jack Daniels' VDOT calculator on my iMac, so it's nice to now have an iPhone App that can tell you exactly where you are in terms of current running ability & more importantly your target running pace for your different workouts from easy endurance runs to fast race pace repetitions & VO2 Max intervals. Love it!

Good app from Jack Daniels
Really happy to see this out for iOS now. Very useful for when you are on the go and need to remind yourself of your training paces or if you are coaching others and want to help them find theirs. I have always appreciated the research done by Jack Daniels and I am happy he is finding ways to share that info through new technological ways. Improvements I would like to see: A way to input your VDOT score and get your training times. I often have mine memorized and its easier to just plug it in then to put in my most recent race. This feature on the website would be great too. I would also like to be able to type in the times rather than using the scroll feature in the app. If possible, having just the number keypad pop up to use for typing would be the most efficient way to do it.

Good tool that could be better
I've been using Jack Daniels' running formula for training for about 6 months. So I refer to Vdot almost daily. However, this app would be much more useful if it remembers your last race settings. I don't want to remember my most recent race results, and enter it each time I want to verify training paces. I guess I will continue to keep a tab open in Safari with my current race information. It's a shame because the app is actually easier to use except for that'd or detail.

Very useful calculator
If you want to know exactly how hard you should be running in your various workouts, not just percentage ranges of Max HR or equivalent, you need this app! Remember to enter new race times as you run them so your training paces get updated accordingly.

Really like it, true 5 star
Love the app, I'd describe it as userlove - light and easy. After fixing that minor bug this becomes a true 5 star app. Thanks guys!

Anticipated Effect and Race Result Option
The online calculator allows the user to select "anticipated effect" or "race result" to see how going to elevation or going to sea level would affect his or her pace/time. The app does not offer this feature or I cannot find it. If you could please help in anyway that would be greatly appreciated. Love the idea of the app though!

Custom distance fail
It could be as great as web version, but I can use the custom distance option because always crash down. I can't read definitions.

Doesn't work with custom distances
Useless unless you have race results. Won't do calculation if you input custom distances. So rather pointless for tracking evolution of your fitness from week to week - I don't run races that much but I do track my distances that I run.
