Nike debuts iPhone app for runners

Nike has launched a new iPhone app for runners, available for download now via the iTunes app store.

The Nike+ GPS App for iPhone will pull in data from the device’s accelerometer and GPS to give runners an effective, accurate and useful tool for getting in shape and staying motivated.
The app is currently available only in English and sells for $1.99.
The app will allow runners to visually map and track every run, indoor and outdoor, “free range” or treadmill.
Nike says the app even works when a GPS signal is unavailable.
Mapped routes show a breakdown of the runner’s pace at various points during the run, as well.
Users can track your distance, time and number of calories burned.
The app also features the “Challenge Me”
