Great update for synching other services!
I was always a fan of the Running app until I started running more seriously and doing longer distances. I found that I had trouble with GPS in some areas, which I don't think is Nike or Apple's fault, but just a limitation that comes with depending on cell phone towers. I also had an iPhone 5 at the time and had terrible battery life. After one run I'd be down to 50%. However I loved the vocal feedback with each mile or time of your choice, I liked the cheer on feature and multiple other things. I ended up getting a Garmin running watch and I LOVE it. It'll last anywhere from hours to days depending on how far you're running. It uses gps satellite so I never worry about it losing my location. The only downside was not being able to synch with Nike. I still love the app mainly for being able to gain motivation from competing with friends and the Coach feature. I found an online synching service but it was managed by one person and sometimes the site would go down. Now it's so easy with this update. My Garmin synchs through Bluetooth with the Garmin app and just like that, my run is synched to Nike as well! Thanks Nike for understanding that your customers can love you and use other devices too!
They've ruined this app
You can no longer fast-forward songs while running. You used to be able to press and hold the forward button and it would fast forward, but no longer. I hold my phone in my hand while I run so I may be a little bit unusual than most, however with every update they keep on putting the fast forward and reverse button further towards the bottom of the phone making it possible for me to change songs while running. Admittedly I have musical ADD but still... The buttons require precisely touching them in less than 1/2 square centimeter to work, and aren't always responsive. Furthermore you're locked into one playlist or all of your songs. You used to have the freedom and control to pick any playlists you want and then launch the app and it would just play the music that you've already preselected. However now, the app controls the music, and not very well. JUNK
New upgrade is excellent. I really like that How the app is learning to play well with others, i.e., Garmin, Wahoo.... The one star ding comes for two small things; 1) Nike Plus Run seems to date iTunes and not really marry her into a one flesh symbiotic relationship, and 3) it would be great to have some type of interval timer built in. It seems Nike should own this in the sense of being way out in front of the competition.
Having made those criticisms, u love that this is free, and though heavily branded (it's called "NIKE Plus), that I'm not bombarded with adverts and deals. Most free apps are essentially commercials to drive commerce, but as much as Nike surely and rightly wants my business, they do not push.
