Nike+ Running is evolving to empower more runners than ever before to track, measure, compare and share their runs across the globe.
The new Nike+ Running experience motivates runners with insightful and inspirational new features, and broadened access to the NIKE+ community, which has grown to approximately seven million members since its launch in 2006.
Runners globally now can enjoy access through the redesigned Nike+ Running App for iPhone, brand new Nike+ Running App for Android, faster performance and smarter motivational features through the reengineered nikeplus webpage, and enhanced social sharing through Facebook Friend tagging – all within the evolving ecosystem of Nike+ Running products.
The key focus for both apps’ designs centres around motivating runners. A new “Next Moves” feature on the home screen allows runners to easily flip through suggested challenges. In the iOS version, the Next Moves feature shows how your last run stacked up against your average and other recommendations for your next run. In addition, a dynamic goal progress bar helps runners stay motivated and tracking on goals they’ve set up through their nikeplus profile.
Nike and Facebook have partnered to make sharing runs to Facebook easier and more fun with a dynamic and social integration from the Nike+ Running App. By posting Nike+ Running App runs to Facebook, runners will see their total distance logged, which cities they’ve run in, and a map of their longest run. The app is one of the first to use friend tagging so runners can see their most frequent running buddies and who has cheered them on.
For the first time, runners can tag their Facebook Friends to runs via the Nike+ Running App. The route will then be shared to their Timeline – making it even easier to get the word out on a great run. The Nike+ Running App for Android is available for free on Google Play.
