It's been a while since I've used this running app. I've been tracking steps regularly on my Fitbit so I thought of using it as well during my runs. This might change starting today with the release of a major update for the app. The Nike+ Running app from before is now called the Nike+ Run Club. From its red accent, the user interface is now turned to a nice blend of yellow and green. On initial load of the application, you get to verify your login information thru the iPhone's TouchID. The map in the application also utilizes Apple Maps. Interface navigation could have change but it shouldn't create confusion for the user. Other changes in the application are detailed below taken from its description from the AppStore.
