I’ve logged over 1K miles with my Nike Run app – many of them as a QA engineer at Fullpower Technologies in Santa Cruz, Ca. Nike used our motion sensing tech to ensure every user’s run distance was accurate – even without GPS.
It’s been a while since I’ve tested the app, but I continue to use it. I love it. And I love how much care and attention the Nike Run team gives it. However, if I could wish for anything, I wish the app helped me find new trails to run. That’s part of the fun of running right? Going outside and exploring new places?
In addition to a complete UI redesign, this concept captures my desire to find new routes to run and appeals to my competitive side by ranking my performance against the community.
