  • Fun app, but needs to show history/search! Dec 16, 2020

    By fruitsmiles
    Had an issue with the app crashing on my 12 mini, uninstalled and reinstalled the app again and now it works fine. It would be really nice if there was a way to see the history of different Wakeouts I’ve done or be able to search for something specific. Sometimes I want to redo a previous set but I haven’t found a way to select what routine to do, other than the type of routine. Also being able to “share” *after* doing the wakeout would be a lot more useful, my mom and I both use this app and sometimes the routine I get is clever or more energizing so I want to be able to share it - but I don’t know that until afterwards. I’ve only seen the share button before completing the wakeout.

    This is the oldest app on my phone. (Even older than facebook) I finally got it to go through on my iPad which make some things so much easier to do some exercises. Over the changes there have been some great changes and not so great. I love the current version. I have a love hate thing for the music but without it I wouldn’t be as happy when I get down. I love the notifications that pop up. I even got the ipad and iPhone set up to go off at different times of the day which is awesome. I did have a free trial and other offers but I was waiting and saving for the lifetime membership. As so those out there that want a free trail don’t sign up for a life time. Life time usually means you’ve already tested it out and really like it. So if your testing this out go with something small until you know for sure that it’s something you’ll love. I love wakeout and their staff. Friendly, supportive and a great app. At least this is my personal opinion.

  • So much potential, but not enough Dec 16, 2020

    By AshelbyA
    I am looking for an app that will help me remember to move throughout the day because my job is mostly sitting in an office. This app has sooo much potential, but just not enough that I would want to spend the subscription price on it. I like the idea that you can share it with the family, but there isn’t even really a profile page. There’s not really a home page either. It just goes straight to different exercises. And then there isn’t a way to set your weekly schedule to be reminded for the workouts each day so if it’s noon on Tuesday and you’ve forgotten to set the focus time then you’ve already missed out on half the days exercises. Another thing I didn’t like was that when you do set the focus time, you’re basically stuck on that page and can’t navigate to any other page on the app unless you end your focus time. 3 stars for such a good idea and great, unique movement exercises. Just not quite enough in the app to convince me to purchase.

  • Has Potential Dec 11, 2020

    By Feioryna
    I think this app had a lot of potential, but it’s not at a place where it’s worth paying a subscription for. The reminder feature and notifications don’t work as well as I would like and it would be nice to have a little more control over the kind of notifications that go to my watch vs my phone. It would also be really helpful if the notifications that went to my watch were alerts with randomized exercise a to do. Currently, the watch notification either has me open the app on my watch to search for an exercise or to open my phone app for the randomized one. It would be really nice it it were streamlined and the notification that went to my watch contained the exercise. I like finding ways to automate my life as much as possible, and this is too manual for my preferences.

  • Love the concept, could be better Jan 8, 2021

    By kwebgurl
    I started full-time teleworking in March and the amount of movement significantly dropped. I discovered this app in December and love the concept. The exercises are short and easy. I really feel like it makes a difference but why do I have to turn this on every day? Can’t there be a way to set this so that I can defineThe start and end of my workday? Are usually don’t remember this until it’s almost lunchtime and I go who wait where was my mid morning remind her to do some short exercises. This will be ever so much more useful if it were just automatically come on every workday for me. Yeah it sounds lazy but the point of the app is to remind me to stretch and move, so obviously i need reminders. 😁

  • Obligated to extra purchase Jun 20, 2018

    By Joe a w
    I was happy using the app, but with the last update you CAN NO LONGER USE IT FOR FREE, you will have to pay for every month. So now is a usleess app because you need to pay in order to be able to see/do any excessive. I feel so discouraged because I have been using the app for free and probably there are going to be more people who can’t afford to pay the monthly plan and we will end up not been able to use the app as in the past. I think developers can do apps that requiere a obligated purchase to use them, they are in the freedom to do it. But when you lunch your app as free with options to purchase and in the future you switch to obligated purchase I don’t think is good because communicate that the company cares more about money than customers. They are willing to loose all the initial customers because they want a better profit. This makes me sad, I used to like this app a lot.

  • Not going to subscribe May 21, 2018

    By Errkaderrka6415
    I’ve read through the other reviews and see that there’s a mixed bag of opinions, but I’m going to have to agree with the handful that think we don’t want to deal with trying to find time to test the app out within your 2 week free trail and then if we don’t like it, going into our iTunes account and cancelling the subscription. As for other apps that do subscriptions, most of the exercise apps I have still foster a free limited version, and then offer a free trail of their pro versions, which may or may not be subscription based. Judging by your responses to other reviews I get the sense that you’re less concerned with the dissatisfied users because you have “thousands of other satisfied users”, so I’ll delete this app and continue using my “other satisfying apps” instead.

  • Overshadowed by its flaws Apr 22, 2020

    By theyarealltakennow
    I really want to like this app, as it’s such a great idea to compile easy exercises and sort them by where it’s convenient to do them. However, it is not possible to silence the obnoxious sound effects (at least, not while using earbuds). This is a real pain if you’re trying to do some easy exercises to wind down in bed, or while on a Zoom Call. Furthermore, I was shocked to hear the whip cracking sound effect that starts a set of exercises. I personally associate this with slave drivers, and I do not want to associate the horrible legacy of the Atlantic slave trade with exercising, which should be something positive. I was also appalled this morning to see an exercise reminder encouraging me to “earn that meal.” This kind of phrasing absolutely contributes to eating disorders. An exercise app does not need to mention food or weight at all. Exercise is about strengthening your body and feeling good. I don’t want this kind of negativity and pressure linked to my exercise. With these flaws marring the app, I’ll be canceling my free trial. It’s a real bummer because this app could have been so useful to me.

    By Juls061877
    Well... I got the free trial and forgot to cancel so I was charged $35 for a year. Never used it. So I figured I might as well since I was charged. Only problem is, every time I try to open a video the app force quits. I hoped an update would help. It didn’t. If this is fixed, I’d be happy to write a new review. Another update and it still isn’t fixed. I have deleted and re-downloaded. Updated twice. And still every time I try to play a video I’m kicked out. And when I go to app support through Apple store I’m sent back to the app which promptly closes as soon as I touch the screen. I feel like I had my money stolen. I guess app of 2020 is an accurate description.

  • Fun way to get some movement into your day May 16, 2019

    By Diebunnydie
    I had initially had some issues with the app, but the developer was super responsive and the issue was isolated. Since then, I’ve used in several locations and really appreciate the approach and videos. I have a very busy, sedentary job, so working out seems impossible—but taking even just a quick 30 seconds of stretch or movement via this app is easy and actually a fun break. And, I’ve gotten more stretch and movement in the middle of my work days using Wakeout than I’ve had previously. This is not a “serious” workout app—but it isn’t meant to be. It’s meant to get us moving. And it does that well. As noted previously: The interface is clean, you input location and energy level or mood to get an exercise selection (and you can use or scroll through to other exercises once presented with one). There doesn’t seem to be a screen for tracking progress (yet), or a way to mark favorite exercises, although it does tell you how many you’ve completed once you’ve completed a wakeout. So room for improvements, but a great app in this niche.

  • Annoying disappointment May 5, 2018

    By Single gal
    I have decided NOT TO subscribe to this app, and I decided to warn others about it. I wanted SO MUCH to like this app, and I have a feeling I am not alone in this, but this app is impossible to use discreetly without the embarrassing karate sumo wrestler yell. It basically ANNOUNCES to anyone within earshot, "Hey! Look over here! I'm about to do some extremely ridiculous-looking exercises right here at my desk! Quick, come LOOK! And be sure to point and laugh!" There was no way to turn it off and it yelled EVEN WHEN THE SOUND ON THE PHONE WAS OFF!!. ARE THEY KIDDING? It's really stupid have an exercise app that features discreet exercises to do in A QUIET OFFICE ENVIRONMENT only to have karate man scream every time you start a new one. My suggestion is clear: the user should be allowed to turn the volume off to shut the app up, or it should be an option in the app itself. Fix that super annoying feature, and I'm there.

  • Movement helps wake me up Jun 15, 2018

    By Wagginpitbull
    Nice idea. You get 18 exercises in the free version. PROS: The upbeat music and movement helps wake me up in the morning. The very short, simple exercises keep me motivated (but keep in mind that I'm not an "exercise person"). CONS: The alarm turns itself off after a minute and it's only as loud as your device will allow. I'd recommend using an alarm clock as back-up. The app chooses exercises randomly and sometimes chooses the same exercise repeatedly so instead of three different exercises you only get one. MONEY GRAB: I like this app and would be willing to purchase a "full version" for a nominal price ($5 or less). Unfortunately, the full version is by subscription. They want you to pay $2 per month or $15 per year for the full version ...and subscriptions auto-renew so you keep paying. As a "non-exercise person" this seems excessive. Although the subscription fee might be acceptable for people who exercise every day, I don't think the short exercises will appeal to them. The app developer is misjudging their market by offering the pro-version by subscription.

  • Like it but needs work Dec 16, 2020

    By Goldiern
    Pros: I like the idea of simple movements and reminders regularly. Being home more due to the Covid -19, I am less active so this meets my needs. Cons: Could be more transparent about the purchase instead of hiding behind a free label. There are no settings. I was going to purchase but then I saw the several choices (pro, family & me and business). What’s the differences except the price. I couldn’t find any info about them on the app itself. It doesn’t work on the iPad as well because not showing full view.

  • So close Dec 3, 2020

    By kelseyowl
    I think the premise is amazing. I think the actual app could use an update. Design wise it feels all at once very outdated (low quality videos) and weirdly hip modern (fantasy cartoon character upon start up). It needs a revamp. Also, if you could PLEASE change the gif from when it says focus time to something less stressful that’d be just a personal preference. Maybe opt for cute cartoon character instead of frantic lady ??? Either way the actual function of this app is great, just minus 1 star for aesthetics.

  • More control over wakeout exercises Oct 1, 2017

    By MoLily
    I was really enjoying this app & was using it as a great way to help me get up in the morning. I purchased the pro version because I was tired of the same few exercises every morning. But then upon getting pro, I realized there are a lot of exercises out of my skill level or that I find difficult to do on my bed for a multitude of reasons. I wanted the ability to just turn off those exercises from the library, but there’s no way I can look at a library of exercises & choose which ones not to pop up. It became very discouraging for me to wake up & get 3 exercises in a row that weee too difficult, & so I stopped using the app. If I had more control over my wakeout experience I’d start using it again & be a happy camper.

  • Great workout app for single people May 29, 2018

    By Joe Fiorini
    This app is not meant for those who share a bed with someone as there is no option for quieter exercises. My very first exercise was hops; god luck doing that without waking up your loved one. I did not want to make this a public review but I found no way to provide feedback via the app. Also, it asked me my activity level (which is embarrassingly low) but I feel like the exercises were still a little hard. A little more guidance for the not-workout-obsessed would be nice. All that said, it did let me get started quickly and the video showing how to do the workouts was helpful.
