One of the tools we use for FigureRunning is the Nike+ app. You can get this app for free now, because Nike+ is turning 5. To celebrate this, Nike gives the app away for free. Congratulations Nike+!
The Nike+ app supports tracking your run on a map and is nice to use for FigureRunning, but of course we must mention the fact that we are building a special FigureRunning app for iPhone right now and we hope to launch this within a few weeks. The big difference to the Nike+ app will be that it is completely focused on drawing and sharing your FigureRun. We’ll keep you posted!
