We return home everyday to be greeted by our flatmate/brother/other half screaming at the top of their voice ‘I just finished my run!’ Not really.
But anyone with a Facebook account probably knows at least one such enthusiastic soul tracking their progress with Nike+ and boosting their motivation with self-congratulatory broadcasts.
So while the most strenuous thing we’ve done all day is amble to the vending machine, iPhone fitness freaks can now start a run quicker from within the already fantastic Nike+ GPS app.
The version 4.0 update also adds functions like comparing your run to the last seven attempts and shoe tagging so that you get a reminder when (Nike thinks) it’s time for a trip to the Nike store for a new pair of running shoes.
Google Play also gets a slice of Nike+ action with the Nike+ Running app, available to download now for free. The UI is similar to the updated iPhone app as are the features and the social integration works on Android too.
We just finished our news story!
