Almost 10 great years of tracking runs. Now this.
UPDATE: Still broken. I use the Apple Watch in conjunction with my iPhone 6, and both instances of NRC- watchOS and iOS- crash pretty consistently. I have discovered one trick, though. If you're interested in tracking a run via NRC on your Apple Watch indoors: 1) Disable your iPhone's Bluetooth. 2) Start NRC on your Apple Watch. 3) Run. 3a) When you finish running, or decide to take a water break, good luck pausing or ending the workout (because you can't). 4) Reconnect Bluetooth when finished. 5) Start NRC on the iPhone. 6) Start a run. 7) Stop the run after a few seconds. This should stop both the Apple Watch run and the iPhone run. If your iPhone isn't handy, you'll have to restart your Apple Watch to end the NRC run. Makes perfect sense, right?
To summarize, if you're training for a marathon (or any other distance) with a group, are on a regimented calendar, or occassionally need to run indoors or on treadmill and track/upload it for training purposes, find another app. This one is broken.
On the bright side, it could be worse. But that would require part of the tracking experience to involve being punched in the gut while jogging. I've logged a few thousand miles with Nike+; so I'd say I've gotten a feel for the whole system. (I'd also estimate I've missed out on logging 1,000 or so miles because of various bugs over the years, but that's just a petty gripe.)
Great app turned bad
I used to love this app, but so many of the things I preferred over apps (namely achievements) were removed. It's turned into more of a social "look at me" or "I'm better than you" app that something a person could use for personal goals, achievements, and pushing yourself harder. I also miss the personal challenges (X miles in Y time, number of runs in a set time, etc) that a person could set up. Now you have to challenge a friend? Lame. There are those of us who prefer to outdo ourselves rather than others. I'd rather go back to using no app and just my music than what this app has turned into.
On top of that, there's all sorts of bugs (the X doesn't work on the post-run photo screen to cancel it. Really??), the UI is a mess, and the kicker that really bothers me is that it defaults the times to east coast time zone. For example, I did a run at lunch around noon local time Pacific but the app named my run and evening run. Same thing happened with achievements in the last version, where late night runs were counted as morning runs instead because of the 3 hour time difference. Learn to use local time for the tracking, guys!
If you're listening to our feedback like each of your updates say, then you'll see that a lot of people are not happy with this latest iteration and giving these 1-star reviews for a reason.
Still annoyed but slightly better
Update: Thank you for bringing the notes back!! This really helped. Still not loving it but I have not deleted this app yet thanks to this fix. Keep listening to your users!
Biggest problems to-date: treadmill pace is off by as much as 1:20, and the voice feedback doesn't work when using app in the background. Please keep working at it!! Keeping original review below for posterity.
Original rating: My Nike+ app just updated and turned into Nike+ Run Club. And with that, I lost every picture, every notation on the workout I had completed, my shoe mileage - everything I had so carefully curated for three years to keep a detailed log of my development as a runner. All I have left is the date, pace, and map of my runs. (At first I thought I lost PRs but I found them at least!) And I could have even handled the change, had I been forewarned and given the opportunity to record that info somewhere. But now it is gone - Nike having evidently decided that wasn't important anymore. And now I have to decide if this app is even worth it. The one star I am giving is because a) you have to have at least one, and b) the coaching function appears far better than before. But since I wasn't using the coach, that hardly outweighs the loss of what I did use.
