I was not happy when this update first happened because I was in the middle of a coaching program under the older version and I lost my progress in that when the app updated. However, once I started a new program I can say that I love it. I really like that it adapts to my development level each week. It's a nice way to see my progress as the plan adapts and becomes more challenging. Sometimes I don't quite understand why it makes the changes it does, and it would be nice if it explained why. But that's a minor complaint. All in all this is a vastly improved app.
Used to like app, but lately it has been letting me down. I was10 weeks into a half marathon training plan when my plan got "updated" and now consists of a bunch of 1.5km "recovery" and 3km "long" runs until race day. Needless to say that that's not useful for me. Please fix along with the in-app music player that is more than faulty since the last major update.
Problem with music player. I hate this music player. I don't want to use it for many reasons, I want to use my own. I can't disable it so it tries to override mine, and randomly stops my music to try to play a different song on the Nike app. This is during my run, mind you, WHEN I'M TRYING TO FOCUS ON RUNNING. Incredibly frustrating, I had to stop the run, which it then froze the app, for whatever reason. Can I just have an option to disable the music player completely in the settings?? Second time this has happened.
The newest update doesn't work at all. It doesn't save my runs, they disappear right after I press stop. This causes the leaderbord isn't up to date. Additionally, I have to open settings and press allow because the app loses it every single time. It used to be the best running app, but now unfortunately, I'm considering uninstalling it.
Started running and used this app from the start. Love the clean, simple interface. Fun to keep track of friend's progress and participate in challenges. I had some minor issues in previous versions, but those have been fixed over time, great job @developers over at Nike 😉!
Sprint intervals are not run/stop voice coached so you need to carry the phone in your hand so you can see the screen to know when to rest and pause the app and when to unpause the app and sprint. Since the app knows when you have completed the sprint distance it should tell you to stop running and rest instead. During sprint sessions the voiced analysis treats it like one long run, which isn't very useful.
