Spotify Running

Spotify Running

Spotify Running is a new feature of Spotify app. It’s not a running playlist, it’s more awesome than that!

Select Running on the menu, and then the app will play tracks syncing the music beat with your running tempo. All the tracks are specifically designed so that the tempo could be changed while you’re running.

When you start, hold the device for a few seconds, so that it could measure your tempo. Unfortunately it doesn’t update the tempo automatically while you’re running, but you can measure it anytime, and the track will magically adjust its tempo. Also, this allows you to put the phone away (or onto a treadmill stand) keeping the tempo.

There’re few themes that you can listen to while you’re running: Burn, Epic, Seasons, Lock the Flow, Blissed Out and The Chase. I’ve been running for 1 hour with The Chase track (remember Running with Zombies?) After 40 minutes it started feeling a little bit tedious, but again, you could always switch to another track or playlist.

If you’re a runner definitely give it a try!

Zombies, Run! 2

Running + Zombies = Awesome

There’s one awesome geek app I was eager to write about for some time now. It’s about running – and zombies. I’ve been running for a while now with Runkeeper, and noticed that there’s another running app called “Zombies, Run!” which can be linked to it, posting the run logs and sharing with friends. So, I decided to give it a try ($3.99 for iOS/Android).
