Nike+ Running App For Android Is Here

[Techtaffy Newsdesk]

Nike has launched the Nike+ Running App for Android. The Nike+ Running App for Android connects to nikeplus.com, and lets runners track, share and compare their runs. The in-run navigation allows runners to check key run stats, see their in-progress GPS maps, change songs or get audio feedback.

The key focus in the app’s design is motivating runners. A “Next Moves” feature on the home screen allows runners to easily flip through suggested challenges: for example, to run their fastest 5k or go their farthest distance.

The app lets users share to Facebook or Twitter. Runners can also choose from a variety of terrains and emotions, as well as tag which shoe they ran in to track shoe total mileage. For runners recording climate conditions, the app automatically knows the weather based on GPS location.

The Nike+ Running App for Android is available for free on Google Play.
