Different voices on the app?

I keep seeing people say who they have on the app- so far I only have Laura. I will admit I only downloaded the free version

Is this why?

I don’t think so! I don’t know of a paid version. You should be able to change your trainer in the settings. If you open the App and look to the left hand bottom corner you should see the word settings. Click on there and you can change the trainer and set reminders for your next run! Hope that helps. ❤️

So should I be using the app rather than the podcasts?

If you wanna change the trainer then yes it’s an app rather than a podcast, from the picture you’ve just posted it looks like you’ve got the podcasts and not the app :)

Brilliant thank you - I’ve found the app but think I’ll stick to the podcast for now

Fair enough, the only difference is you can play your own music on the app :)

You can change your trainer through settings on the app. 😊

The original, the one you posted a pic of podcast (using Laura's voice) does, or did have, music with it but was not to everyone's taste. I think the podcast is more stable than the app as there have been quite a few posts about it being a bit flaky at times.

It depends if you can stomach the music on the podcast. My previous try at C25K was with the podcast and I would often finish in tears and rage because the (to my ears) awful music stressed me out immensely. I must admit, at the risk of being shot down here, that I also find Laura really irritating and I'm glad I can choose someone else to speak to me on the app.
