I think it's faking progress.
This a great app to use for running, by all means keep going and keep using it. For my experience, at the time of writing this review, I was prepping to ship out to marine boot camp. Looking at the progress I made with this app, I was proud at what I was doing. I checked in at the recruitment office to see how fast I can hit a mile. It was 10:41. But for some reason, this app tells me I hit 2 miles in about 16 minutes. That's not possible, unless I'm Usain Bolt which I highly doubt. I also noticed that this app was taking in my miles quickly than I can run them. For the 4x400 Meter run, I estimated online how much is 400 meters in mileage, and it's 0.2. I tested it out on a regular, non planned run, and I easily hit 0.2 miles in a short distance. So I thought ok, piece of cake. I did the 4x400 meters, and it was longer for some reason. I don't know but it seems this app is faking progress somehow. Has anyone else had a similar experience??
Great Running Tool
I'm a novice runner and I like how this app works to track my progress and how it provides all the info I need during my runs! Thanks Nike!
Update Sep 8, 2016
Since the conversion to NRC I think the app has become a bit complicated with too much going on altogether. I prefer the original running app but I still like this one, I just need to get used to it!
Update Mar 4, 2017
Version 5.4.0 together with Apple Watch version 3.1.3 is by far the best iteration of the Nike Run App since it became NRC! I like how the run is controlled on the phone whenever it is started on the phone and the mile markers are the most accurate I've seen for the pair since all the other updates.
Thank you for listening to us and thank you for providing an awesome product for free!
Update Aug 2017
I like all the improvements made on this app, especially the recent update that allows better controls. I also like how the more recent versions are not buggy like the ones when it was first switched from Nike Running to Nike Running Club. Great job Team Nike! Keep up the good work! Thanks for helping me keep my motivation up!!
Cheers Nike Team! FIVE STARS!
Nice run planning and motivation app. Poor in run app with Apple Watch.
I run with the Apple Watch. I have found that the Nike run app is annoyingly slow to respond (wake up) when I turn my wrist to see the watch face. The screen takes a second or two to wake up.
The app lacks two significant features that the stock Apple fitness run app has. 1) there is no way to manually create a lap. 2) you have to pause and resume by hitting a button on the screen when it is awake, this is very annoying and unsafe when trying to pause and resume while running. These 2 missing features that are both present in the Apple fitness app mean that I will be using the Apple fitness app instead of Nike.
It would be great if the Nike iPhone app would recognize the runs when completed using a different app, such as the Apple app.
