Nike+ Running for iPhone gets new UI, features

By , Jun 22, 2012

Nike today issued a major update to its running app sporting a revamped interface and tons of new features. You can now get into a run even faster, compare your last run to previous seven, along with the ability to visualize you runs in a beautiful new view that includes a landscape history…

Other tidbits include shoe tagging where you basically provide the name of your running shoes to track the distance you travel in them. The stats also let you see when your shoes are nearly done running, reminding you it’s time to buy a new pair.

I also love how the app automatically tags the weather for you.

Here, your release notes.

- Get into a run even faster. You can now tap the run button from anywhere in the app. And off you go.

- See how your last run stacks up against your previous seven, and get fresh insights based on your latest activity every time you come back to the app.

- Swipe downwards on the new Home Screen to view your next moves. From picking your PowerSongs to challenging one of your personal bests, there’s always something to make your running experience better than before.

- Visualize your runs side-by-side and see your progress with a new landscape history view.

- Our new Run Summary makes it easier to view your route, tag how you felt, and note your terrain. And don’t worry about the weather; we’ll automatically tag it for you.

- Rotate your phone while viewing the Run Summary to see the breakdown of your run into mile splits.

- Introducing shoe tagging: Type in the name of your running shoes to track the distance they’re logging and see when it’s time to lace up a new pair. You’re never done running, but your shoes might be.

Nike+ Running for iPhone is a free download. right from the App Store.

Are you using this app to log your runs? Do you jog at all?

    This update has some very bad reviews. Wait for the next update from Nike.

      It just got released for Android (same version) so they’re going to have a hard time using it :(

    See Apple should get rid of the native Nike+ iPod app and Nike should integrate the rest of those features (footpod support, native lockscreen support with permission from Apple) into this new app. It be nice to choose between choosing gps or the footpod or both.

    There is another update for this version. Looks fine for me, ran today 7km and it was pretty good. Only annoying thing is that, I can’t lock device normally… Apple, please let Nike to get this feature!
