iPhone app: Runners Unite

By Skip

I downloaded this app as I was thinking about creating something similar myself.  However, after playing around with it, there is still a market for something that is decent.  This app is branded by Dick’s Sporting Goods.

Maybe it is the fact that there are not enough people signed up for it but I have YET to find anybody running in my area that shows up on my app.  Keep in mind I live in a VERY active running community.

The idea is to login and find others to run and pace with.  Great idea, poor exposure.  I would suggest downloading it and at least try it… your area might contain more active users.  It could be due to the fact that Dick’s Sporting Goods is new to us here in south Florida.  As a matter of fact I am seeing the first one built down the street from me… I don’t know of any others in the area.

This app is for free and can be downloaded by click on the following iTunes icon:

Try it and see if it works for you!  In the meantime it is coming OFF of my iPhone and I will try it again in a few months.  I just cannot be bothered to keep launching the app and finding that nothing has changed…. sigh!

If you liked that post, then try these...

About

So if you have read any of the blog thus far you know a little bit about me… I can not be told what to do and I push myself about as far as I can be pushed!

But how did I get here and why? Well, that is what this page is about.

I was never really the athletic type. Sure, I played tennis in high school (and quite well, mind you) but running CERTAINLY was never my thing!

The start of 2009 was big for me as I came to the realization that I had put on too much weight over the past 10 years (read more...)
