Android runners rejoice! Nike has just launched the Nike+ Running app for Android, giving runners more access to the world's largest running club. Re-engineered to be smarter, more social and more motivational, this app seamlessly connects to nikeplus.com, allowing runners to track, share and compare their runs from anywhere at any time. Featuring an optimized, smoother and more intuitive user interface for Android, its in-run navigation provides key run states and in-progress GPS maps. Runners can also change songs or get audio feedback without missing a stride.
"The expansion of NIKE+ onto multiple mobile platforms will allow us to serve more runners than ever before," said Stefan Olander, Vice President, Digital Sport. "This opportunity will give even more athletes the chance to experience NIKE+, which makes this an incredibly exciting time for the Running community."
Available for free on Google Play, the Nike+ Running app for Android is designed to motivate runners. Through the 'Next Moves' feature on the home screen, runners can even attempt suggested challenges like 'fastest 5k runs' or 'farthest distance'. By keeping track of runners' goals on nikeplus.com, the app's dynamic goal progress bar helps users stay motivated throughout the session.
Sharing on Facebook or Twitter is also just as fun, as runners can choose from a wide variety of terrains and emotions, as well as even tag the shoe they ran in to track shoe total mileage. The app can even detect current weather based on GPS locations to record climate conditions.
