    "The app is pretty decent. I like all the things that it tracks and that you can see your path on the map. I used it with another app where it sounds like zombies are chasing you while you run and it was a pretty killer combination."

    "I was using the Nike Run App for awhile before getting tired of it and wanting to try something new. I decided to give Google Fit Fitness Tracking a try and it's been exactly what I've been looking for. From the moment I'm picking my daily goals or goals to set for the long run, I'm good to go. I can adjust for time intervals and Google Fit also tracks all my progress. I think this has been the fitness tracking app I've been missing in my life and so far I haven't been disappointed in the results. I've been sticking to my workout schedules and routines. The results are showing!"

    "I run by feel most of the time so I use this app on my Android phone for distance tracking. Sometimes it doesn't track so I have to get on computer and manually add my course. Annoying since I don't always run a fixed course."

    "NRC is surprisingly capable considering is put out by such a large company as Nike. Has a lot of features to keep track of your progress as would be expected but I find the updates help keep you going such as the new audio guided runs."

    "if your phone doesn't happen to keep track of your steps on it's own this app is a great addition then. This is really one of the best app out there for tracking steps and running."

    "My favorite running app so far. It works like a running diary, keeping track of the course, the challenges along the way, like when I run up a bunch of stairs or climb a hill. It keeps track of how far I run and my pace. I can use it to compare each day and I run, so I can see if I am improving. It’s fun and it keeps me motivated when I share it with my buddies. We can compare our stats. I can even add a picture or two of my route. Like the other day when I was running and I saw the deer. Very cool. "
