Love this app. I really like the way it tracks and maps my run. I enjoy the share feature. More stickers would be nice. It's not the most intuitive interface, which is why I went with 4 stars instead of 5. I was annoyed with having to manually do runs with intervals on my own instead of the app telling me when to start and stop. Other than that I've been super happy with it. I also recall appreciate that it doesn't stop tracking just because I've completed the run I selected. It allows me to go further. I love that.
This is definitely one of the best running apps available. I use it 2-3 times per week training for races. Still, it could be better. I had to knock off a star because it doesn't let you choose a streaming music service for your training playlist. You can open them up separately, but it's an extra step. The training programs also aren't as flexible as I'd like. For example, I finished the 5k program, but then the 10k program behaved like I started from scratch. It should really be more adaptive for runners in training. My final wishlist item is for better synchronization with my smart watch. I have a Gear S2 with the Nike app, but it can't tell when I start a run on my phone. I shouldn't have to dig in my pocket to glance at stats when I have the app on the watch. Overall a good app, but I would like to see more.
This app has great functionality. Informative features for free and gorgeous interface. The big deal breaker however is that it runs painfully slow on my phone. Trying to just look at a route in my history takes over 10 seconds too load. Really a shame because everything else is perfect, but this makes me very hesitant to use it. (LG G4)
I used to love this app but after some of the recent updates it has become dysfunctional. Consistently only tracking about 1/4 of my run; so slow to update in real time that I have to run a separate stopwatch at the same time; and crashing every time I try to save a run. It's time now for me to move on to a more accurate and user-friendly app!
The latest updates have been great! I just wish I could turn off the random coaches that sometimes talk at the end of a run. Every now and then the route doesn't seem to track correctly. Not sure if that's a problem with the phone or app. Adding a camera button to the run screen was a great addition for race day!
1. On every update you ruin something else. Why can't i slide left and right in the details screen to move between tabs??? 2. In "Details and Splits" screen, in SPLITS tab, it says "Avg. Pace" but this is wrong! This is NOT average pace! This is SPLIT pace!! Please fix! 3. When I start a Distance activity in QUICKSTART (e.g 5K), please tell me in the end my time in 5K. Because i might continue running but I wanted to do 5K, so I want to know my time in 5K. Just add a label of total 5K time please. 4. Please add split pace in voice feedback (not average pace, current split pace) - i know i can display current pace but i want to hear it every split. Thanks
General bug fixes and improvements.
