Depending on which app you choose, you will get a ton of features in the app. The apps can play music in the background while you run, interrupting only to tell you the next part of your workout is coming up and what to do. Once you are done, it can auto-post the run to Facebook or Twitter (only if you choose to do so, of course). You can always sneak a peak at the schedule for the next couple of days to get an idea of what type of runs you will be doing, and how long you should plan on blocking out for the run. Be sure to read the reviews of the apps to see which one has the exact features you are looking for!
