Nike has launched Nike+ GPS a latest application for runners, in App Store. As its name commits, this new application’s prime benefit is live GPS following while you run. It can follow your route and upload it – with rest of your running data – to Nikeplus.com. Nike’s web community and service for gadget- allowed runners.
Nike+ GPS also contains a Challenge Me feature which is made to support ambitious runners push themselves. In case you run 3 miles, Challenge me will boost you to run 3.5 Run 5 miles, and Nike’s application will shift the carrot only a bit further.
There are some likely causes for why Nike resolved to launch a separate Nike+ application when it already received Apple to build 1 in iOS. For you, this latest application does not need the purchase of Nike+ iPod Sport Kit – it depends solely on device hardware such as accelerometer and GPS. As an impact, iPod and iPhone touch users now just have to consider buying a $2 application versus a $30 kit.
Moreover, with raised competition in exercise-following market from the Runmeter, RunKeeper likes and others, a separate application, which is no longer based on Apple’s iOS updates for latest features permits Nike to be nimble in Application store. Nike+ GPS is available for $2 in App Store.
