‘Nike+ GPS’ Gets Major Update, Goes Free for a Limited Time

by Marianne Schultz
 

Nike has updated its Nike+ GPS app with several new features, adding more Voiceover feedback control, improved GPS and accelerometer performance and more. Also, in celebration of the 5th year of Nike+, Nike+ GPS is free for a limited time down from its regular price of $1.99. Nike+ is a free service that tracks users’ running stats and offers the ability to set goals, join challenges, and connect with a large online community.

The full list of the app’s new features is as follows:

  • Control whether incoming calls will pause your run.
  • Select your preferences for Voiceover feedback, or turn it off all together.
  • End or pause your run without pulling the plug on your music.
  • Register or sign-in to Nike+ GPS with your Facebook or Twitter account.
  • Experience a boosted engine with improved accelerometer and GPS accuracy.
  • Challenge your friends to a new Nike+ Tag Game: Last to Run, where the last person to sync a run is IT.
  • Easily find friends to play Nike+ Tag by searching for their usernames.

Note that Nike+ GPS requires iOS 4 or higher on an iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 or 2nd-generation or later iPod touch.

This is the first time that Nike+ GPS has gone free since it was released last September, so definitely jump on this if it’s been on your Wish List. I’ve tried a few running apps and Nike+ GPS has been my favorite so far because of its ease of use and Voiceover feedback (I have it update me on my workout time and pace every 1 minute, which helps keep me focused and motivated).
