Streak Workout – was $2.99/£2.99, now FREE

One of our favorite fitness apps has just gone free on the App Store, and even if you’re not an exercise nut you’d be mad to miss it. We included Streaks Workout in our roundup of apps that make exercise fun, which you can check out in full here.

If your idea of exercise is that it’s all perfectly good when it stays inside and is confined to a short space of time, Streaks Workout is an essential download. Its friendly nature makes it an ideal exercise companion for pretty much anyone.

The app contains a number of basic exercises you can select from. Don’t fancy rocking the floor with jumping jacks and squat jumps? Turn those off. Lacking space? Get rid of the exercises that have you lie on the floor.

When you’re done, you can choose from workouts ranging from six to 30 minutes in length, during which the app randomly chooses from your exercise selection. On finishing, your efforts are recorded in the app’s calendar, and you get a score to outline your recent and best streaks, along with how often you’ve exercised over the past seven and 30 days.

This simple level of gamification and lack of data overload makes for an encouraging kind of app you’ll stick with for the long term. So why not give it a go before the price increases again?

Please bear in mind that this discounted price is for a limited time only and could increase at any time. The App Store will always confirm the current price before download.
