Nike+ GPS / The Best Running Tool Since Shoes

DISCLAIMER: My role for Nike+ GPS was product management.


It doesn’t matter what type of runner you are – beginner, indoor, or hardcore marathoner – Nike+ GPS can help make you a better runner and make your exercise more fun. The iPhone application allows runners to map their runs, track progress, and engage their Facebook/Twitter friends to cheer them on.

Nike+ GPS launched in September 2010 and has been the #1 paid app in the Health and Fitness category. Overall, it launched as the #2 paid app…only behind Angry Birds. We went on to be App Store App of the Week and joined the App Store Hall of Fame.
