Reliable, with timely updates. Unobtrusive. Seamlessly syncs with wrist monitors and music apps. Good, no nonsense community ( mostly ). Haven't had it crash on me since the last update. Logs everything. And the UI is on a different level altogether. Legit makes it fun to get back to the app in the evenings. P.S. : The guided run module needs work. A short video of Kenyans actually running fartlek might be more instructive than just the voice coach. Show me how it's done, but don't tell me what to do; let me run my own way. Rated : 8.5/10
This app. was great about two years ago and before. Simple and robust, never failed. It's been more than a year, when they changed all the look and feel, that it just does not work OK. Bugs are frequently introduced on each new version... I still use it but not happy with the change. New bug in last version: not tracking properly, showing impossible straight lines on the map. Also pace and distance is not accurate. Could you please test the app. before releasing?
Initially I loved the app however with each update the app is becoming an unknown animal & behaves differently. Some time the autopause fails, some times the splits are not shown, sometimes selected distance unit does not show up & what not. One time post my 5K I only found 1 split..lolz. Please keep it simple & efficient.
I like the app and how you can see a map. Love the splits. Love that I can choose hearing my pace per quarter mile. However, I do not like when I'm on coaching mode, that I can't hear my pace every 1/4 mile like I can in the regular mode. Hence I typically won't choose the coaching mode anymore since hearing my time quarterly motivates me greatly! Would give 5 stars if I could do that.
I tested a lot others app for running but they were always missing one or another feature that Nike Running has, so I ended up coming back and I don't think I'll leave it again. However, I don't know why but I can't download the guided runs, it stays at 0% forever. Please, fix it!
Every other update fundamentally breaks the app in some way, seems to fluctuate between working well and not working at all between each update. Currently inaccurate distance, pace and GPS mapping not working (i.e. the guts of the app are not stable). This used to be a very robust app with no problems don't know what went wrong. Will be stitching to an alternative, very disappointed as have used for nearly 3 years.
