We have decided to take down our Couch to 5k and Couch to 10k apps from the App Store due to a trademark dispute.
On Friday, November 11, we received a cease & desist letter from the Active Networks, the trademark holders of “Couch to 5k.” In order to avoid legal action, we have decided to remove our apps, references from our web sites, and and our Twitter accounts related to the trademark.
We also will remove the ability to download previous versions of the app from iCloud, for legal reasons. We will continue to provide customer support for our Couch to 5k and Couch to 10k apps, but they will no longer be available for sale on the App Store or to be restored via iCloud.
We regret having to do this, but this seems to be the best way to avoid legal action, and we see this as a chance to work on new apps. We plan to keep updating our other apps, and hope to bring more great apps in the future.
