Nike+ GPS App Requires No External Sensor

Nike has created a new Nike+ app for the iPhone and iPod touch that lets users track their running progress without using the external sensor attached to a shoe.

The new app called Nike+ GPS is compatible with the iPhone 4, 3GS and the iPod touch 2nd gen through 4th gen. Of course the iPod touch doesn’t have a GPS sensor. For those with a touch, you’ll be restricted to tracking runs through the accelerometer which means you wont get maps of your run (unless you have an external GPS case).

The app costs $1.99 and is available now at iTunes to download and install. As with other Nike+ devices, you can sync your running data to the Nike+ website although unfortunately, the Nike+ app doesn’t download coach programs and other goals you set to your iPod or iPhone.
