Accessibility Comments

Unfortunately this app does not seem to be accessible, although it first appears to be. You can view the activities and create an account, but you cannot select any of the in app purchases for classes. There are 4 tabs along the bottom which are unlabeled. The in app purchases are dimmed and cannot be clicked with voice over.

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads most page elements.

Button Labeling

Most buttons are clearly labeled.


Some parts of the app are accessible with VoiceOver, but not enough to make it usable.

Other Comments

This app could have been so useful as all the workouts are in audio, but you cannot get any further than the list of classes available.

I was able to use this app successfully! The only thing that seems not to work is being able to rate the classes. But I was able to sign up through Facebook, pick a plan… The seven day free trial and take a few classes once you find the class you want at the bottom right corner there is a start class button and then it counts down three, two and then The music and the trainer will start simultaneously I can't remember what each tab is along the bottom but the first one is something like a home tap which is your main screen I forget what the second and third ones are and the fourth one is something like Moore or something to that effect. But they are easily figured out there's really no guesswork involved I just can't remember off the top of my head right now. It says that this app was posted December 26. Since that time this app has become accessible. This is just what I have been looking for and they have everything! I'm using an iPhone 7 with the latest version of iOS. I would really encourage the applevis community to give this app a Nother shot it really does work! :-)

I'v been using this on my iPhone 6s with vo for around 3 1/2 weeks. We've got a spin bike in the house and it's genuinly improved my cardio fitness, helped me lose a good bit of weight so far and more importantly keeps me genuinly motivated. The trainers are very engaging, and I use it for spin calsses, yoga, meditation, and strength training.
Even on a day that I'm tired from work and don't get out of the house I can still go to the roof space, hop on the bike and meet my daily exercise and move goals in the Health app.
I use this with my faceBook account and just relabelled the tabs at the bottom with vo by holding down two fingers on the element after double tapping with the same two fingers.
Like someone else said the rating portion isn't accessible, but honestly everything else is. Even adding things to your favourites is accessible. It might be an unlabelled button, but once you tap it it says selected and you can relabel anything you come across that isn't clear to you using the method I outlined above.
give this app a will and contact the developers as it's an absolute smasher for visually Impaired folks wanting a solid workout experience.

Hi, I know it's been a while but I was wondering if you had gotten the app to work? I did my seven day free trial first and then they sent me an email for a 30 day free trial. There was one part of the login process where I had to turn off voiceover and have someone press the button for me but that was only with the 30 day free trial you can link apptiv to your Apple ID or straight to your credit card.

I've written to the developers and hope they get back to me.

This app is great for those of us who want to get fit or keep fit.

I am so looking forward to trying this. Thanks, Khalfan, for the podcast demonstration!

Submitted by Rocker on Monday, June 18, 2018

The link provided in this review takes me to the App Store in the united kingdom! Obviously, I am an able to download the application! Very disappointed!

Hi Rocker,
I went to the App store and in to the Search tab. Then typed the name of the app (Aaptiv) and it came up at the top of the list. I was able to sign up for a 30-day free trial. So far, the only thing I couldn't do is save my chosen treadmill workout to favorites. But all the samples I've played were great. In the morning, I'll give it a try. I've been looking for an app like this for quite some time.

Submitted by Rocker on Monday, June 18, 2018

Does not show up in a search in the Canadian App Store! I shall contact The developer to see if they can help! I agree with you Gail, this is something I have been looking for for ages! Very stoked! help

I was perusing the Health app on my iPhone this morning, and saw this app mentioned. I might try it out at some point, but the on-board Health app seems pretty awesome. Very accessible too.

Submitted by Rocker on Tuesday, June 19, 2018

For a lark, I hit the provided App Store link then hit the following after this message: The item you've requested is not currently available in the Canadian Store, but it is available in the U.K. Store. Tap Change Store to view this item. Afterwards, I find out that the app is not in the UK store! I emailed the developer but they are likely working out because they have not got back to me and it’s been over a day! Epic fail developer epic fail reviewer! You should be checking the small details out before doing a podcast!

Received a response as follows:
Thanks for reaching out and for your feedback. Aaptiv is only available in the U.S. App Store and cannot be accessed internationally at this time. We apologize for any inconvenience. We plan to expand into international markets in the future, and we’ll be sure to let you know when Aaptiv is available in your country.

I’m so disappointed this isn’t available in the UK. I stupidly spent ages looking for it on the App Store before thinking to look atApplevis.

Submitted by thebigt on Thursday, July 5, 2018

I am lad the app is more accessible now than when i reviewed it. To be honest, i lost patience with it so perhaps this was why i didn’t find it as accessible as it is now. I am unsure why it has been removed from the UK app store as when i reviewed it it was there.

Hi Aaptive’s the fitness app I’ve Ben looking for

Submitted by Ahmed on Wednesday, April 14, 2021

One thing that I should mention when working out using Aapptiv is that Aapptiv’s professional trainers are not joking when they say coming up we have walking lunges they give you only 30 seconds to complete The exercises this means you have to be very quick

Submitted by gailisaiah on Wednesday, April 14, 2021

Hi all: I really like this app! The only thing was, after the free trial, a couple of years ago, it costs around $99 per year.

Submitted by gailisaiah on Wednesday, April 14, 2021

I re-downloaded Aaptiv and it costs $50 per year which is about $4 per month.

Since I use my watch, how can I track my progress? I'm a bit confused how it will track progress if I'm not waring my phone.

I don’t think your Apple Watch syncs up with this app. I would also like some thing that I can use along with my Apple Watch so this app is not quite for me

Submitted by Cliff on Thursday, April 15, 2021

I started using this app a week ago, and it has indeed Apple Watch integration. Aaptive has it's own Apple Watch app, that will launch automatically on the watch and track your workout once the workout is started from the iOS app, given that you've granted the right permissions to sync with health kit.
It tracks cals and heart rate and it even has a heart zone number at the top. This far the watch app seems to be very accessible :)

Their are real human trainers that will walk you through the movements for each exercise

Submitted by KE7ZUM on Friday, April 16, 2021

OH good, yeah I don't want to hurt myself as I am slightly injured already for what ever reason. I might try this app out.

I re-downloaded this app to give it another try. It's a paid app but so worth it! Totally accessible with VO and I highly recommend it! I really like the trainers and you can choose your own type of music for your workouts.

Submitted by gailisaiah on Monday, April 19, 2021

I think the accessibility rating should be updated. This app is totally VO accessible and easy to use!

I completely agree the Accessability rating for this app should be updated in order to reflect the recent accessibility improvements the developer made to the app

Aapptive’s trainers are very energetic

Submitted by KE7ZUM on Tuesday, April 20, 2021

It's too bad that I have to choose yearly. I cannot, or could not choose monthly. Well I'll try this free fro a week and see how it goes. I plan on doing the running thing, except I power walk due to an accident I had. So hopefully I can choose that at some point.

When browsing threw Aapptivs different subscription plans which are priced as follows monthly 14$.99 gives you access to aapptivs classes on a monthly basis annual 99$.99 US app store price gives you access to Aapptiv’s library of classes a note to new and current/former users when choosing between the different trainers Aapptiv’s trainer list is extensive which is why it’s very important to choose a trainer that suits you

Submitted by KE7ZUM on Friday, April 23, 2021

Actually it was about 24 dollars here yearly, but there was a sale which I took, otherwise it would have been 45 a year. Those prices are not matching what I"m seeing.
