Nike Introduces Nike+ GPS Running iPhone App

It’s been a long time coming, but Nike has finally gotten into the GPS-tracking runner’s market with the Nike+ GPS app ($1.99). Nike will be taking on an established market of iPhone runner’s apps like personal favorite, Runkeeper.

The Nike+ GPS app uses the iPhone’s GPS to track distance and speed, while also offering some familiar Nike+ features like PowerSongs and motivational messages from Nike celebrity athletes. And best of all, it does not require the annoying Nike+ sensor from yesteryear.


  • Records your run’s pace, distance, and run route.
  • View calories burned.
  • View your run route on Google Maps.
  • Set goals and personal challenges within the app.
  • Reach goals and get congratulatory and motivational messages from celebrity athletes.
  • Get voice feedback on how your run is going.
  • Activate your personalized PowerSong for that extra motivational push.
  • Sync data with the Nike+ website, where you can set challenges, goals, and utilize the Nike+ runner’s community.
  • View your history of runs.

Nike+ GPS is a $1.99 download from the App Store.

    Does this App actually work? Now I know why they wouldnt fix the free Nike + Ipod app. Its been broke for 2-3 months and instead of fixing the free app they just offer a 1.99 app. What a Joke…

    I can not get it to sync with Nike+ either… Pretty frustrating since that is basically what would keep track of the progress. Pretty useless without.

    I works perfectly with treadmill.
    The app has an error with syncing, but Nike is aware of the problem and they are working on a solution to solve it.
