Nike+ GPS APP
Link to Itunes to view the Nike+ GPS App
This morning at 6:00am I arose to squeeze in a quick 3 mile run before having to prepare for my normally scheduled work day. I am not a morning person and prefer my sleep, so I usually run after work in the evenings. I use an IPhone 4 with the Nike+ GPS App and have been using it for about 4 months and overall it is a great tool for runners. The biggest issue the App has is the Nike Tag program. When you are part of a massive tag game or perhaps just a game in general it causes the App to load slowly, freeze, and not function smoothly.
Pros and Cons:
- When I tried to start my run today with the Nike+ GPS App I had to spend 5 minutes trying to progress through the App selecting the right options. It took this long because the App was mostly being unresponsive. I had to close out of the App about 3 times to restart my attempts.
- When I finished my run this morning at about 6:45am and went to sync it to my Nike+ account it would not sync and now 1.5 hours later it still will not sync. These are little frustrations. It is these types of frustrations with a program like that are the most annoying to consumers like you and me. Because they are minor and seem simple to fix we get more aggravated when they occur.
Nike is continually working on this Nike+ GPS App and the Nike+ website. They even send out emails notifying the users of their plans. I appreciate that because both these tools are 90% Awesome but the 10% that is not awesome are the annoying parts that cause time wasting.
Scheduled in the future Nike Product Reviews will have an in-depth product review of the Nike+ GPS App that is available. The set time for that review to be released is undetermined.
