I have been using this for years and overall love this running app. But I’m still having un-syncing problems between iPhone and Apple Watch. So first I start a run on my iphone8 then open app on my Apple Watch series 3 and it can see is synced. But later on like after mile 7 I notice the watch has shorter and shorter distance showing compared to what is on the phone. Also the phone is no longer showing heart rate. When I’m done first I hold down stop to finish the run on the phone. But notice the watch is still tracking a run I have to swipe left on watch and stop that run. After a few minutes in the phone app appears two separate runs. Please fix and I would rate 5 stars! Can you please please please add coach run plans for ultra distances ie 50k, 50mile, 100k, 100mile?!? Thanks!
Question for Apple - Why create a partnership with Nike, and then not require them to submit software that actually works. This run app is a buggy P of S, that can’t even sync your watch and phone to run together. I’d be embarrassed if I partnered with a company that can’t write basic code that a high schooler can write. MapMyRun, Strava, etc. here I come. Nike, I’m so p’oed ive stopped buying your shoes and gear.
Periodically stops tracking run, which is a real pain. Also seems to have problems tracking longer runs.
We need back the friends challenges that any user can make to run against their friends for a specific time frame (eg. 1 month, 2 months, 3 months etc - 1st person to 50miles gets the Gold!)
App tends to freeze on long runs and miscalculates distance and times as a result. Definitely not 100% accurate.
The guided runs are one of the best features on the app. They have a run for everything (long runs, short runs, comeback run, unmotivated to run run, etc.) and its so easy to just press play and start running. Also they have playlists already made filled with high energy songs perfect for running! This app makes running easy and convenient and something to look forward to. 10/10 would recommend.
This app is helping me get motivated I recently gained back 40 pound give it take and this app is getting me to feel like running again
I’ve been using this app for about 5 months now with my Apple Watch series 3 gps Watch. Everything works great when you are doing anywhere from 1-6 miles. Once you start getting past that it starts getting extremely slow announcing mileage and times. What usually takes 5 to 10 seconds now can take more than 2 minutes and while your running it is extremely annoying. “Time.........40.........2.........minutes........20.........5.......seconds......” and so on. It can be over a 10 to 15 second pause between each phrase while its calculating the time. Also it stops your workout automatically at times. Today while running I was pretty sure I had ran over a mile without an announcement then I look down and not calculating anymore. Go back it and start it again and it says “beginning workout” like it’s starting a new one when I had already ran 10 miles. Luckily it continued from where I left off but who knows how long the gap was between it stopping then starting again. I think I’ll look for a new running app now.
I’ve been using NRC app for years now, and although I love Nike, this app is just not reliable enough to use for long distance run. I’ve just completed my 10mi run on my Apple Watch S4 and when I opened up nrc app on my phone after the run, it for some reason didn’t record the run that was clearly on my watch. Better yet, it decides to wipe my run from my watch as well, leaving me no record of the run at all. This was not the first time that this has happened but I was naive enough to think that Nike was going to and have fixed it. Boy was I wrong. Every run is important to keep in my record for my marathon training and this left unnecessary gap. Nike should just not create these crappy app and just let Apple make it for them. Save yourself time and sanity. DON’T use this app.
I love it really keeps me motivated during my run and never lets me forget I have to run everyday
Distance and pace is not correct every time I training. Almost less than my workout.
I’ve been using the NRC app for a while now. It was okay in the beginning but lately the runs are not at all recorded. At first it counts down to the run but doesn’t record the progress of the run. I’ve just finished a long run and when I wanted to see how I did, nothing shows up. I finished a half marathon and there is nothing the start and end points. It shows that I have covered 7:35 mins of running but in reality and on my Garmin watch I’ve done 1 hour 45 mins of running up till completion. Simple things like this can be fixed. It wasn’t an issue before but now the app is just awful. 1 star from me.
This app is so good not one problem with it at all and it’s helped me so much all I have to say is thank god for this app 🙏🤘😊
God I love this app, you won’t regret downloading, just finished a 5K run and have never felt better. You can do it too!! Though I wish there were more treadmill guided runs...
Good app I love it thanks
I’d planned to use the app with some work friends of mine who are getting back into running. Social feed doesn’t work, integration to Garmin is buggy - misses runs, and will have the correct count of runs and mileage for a time period but not show the actual runs. Frustrating - hit delete, got everyone to just sign up for Strava and felt a lot better.
Has the “My Coach” function broken? I can’t get it to work st all.
The title I lifted from another user (Paul-Dio?), he hit the nail on the head. I love this app... except when I hate it. The latter comes mostly from the “MyCoach” inability to sync with the NTC app. Basically it doesn’t recognize that you’ve completed your NTC workouts as the sync doesn’t work. Then every week or so if you allow the app to “adapt your plan” it basically adapts your plan backwards eg it gets easier not more challenging. I’ve binned 3 plans because of it (yeah I’m a slow learner lol). I guess Nike should just remove the “adapt my plan” function? Other then that great app.
I normally never do reviews and I’ve never trusted them but this is amazing. Honestly, I’ve never been able to run 3km without stopping but omg they really did help me and it was the first time I used this app!
The app runs well. It also tells you so much about he run that you did. Another great thing is that you can download running coaches which really helps with your run and motivates you to run better.
Five stars all the way!
User friendly and tracks great!
Didn’t log in to Facebook upon download and now can’t find anywhere to connect
This app gets worse every update. Instead of crashing less, it now crashes multiple times during every run. No support from developer. When it works, it’s great, so one extra star.
Gives you an update for every mile you run! Also shows you your pace that way you can check and see if you need to speed up o reach your goal or if you re on track rich I love. Great app!
This app will only allow you to listen to music through Spotify within the Nike RC app itself. The Spotify access within the Nike app is very limited in its capabilities and you are unable to pick a specific song or channel to listen to. It only allows you to play or shuffle Nike playlists or your own playlists. Even then, you cannot choose specific songs within these playlists. If you do try to use the Spotify app concurrent to the Nike RC app, the Nike app pauses tracking my run approximately every tenth of a mile. Until Nike RC allows me to use The Spotify app while running, I will not be using the Nike app.
I have been using this app for like 7 years. Used to be fine but somehow keeps getting worse. Constantly have to delete and re-install to get it synced with my Apple Watch. Not sure why, even after all the updates, this now always happens but never gets addressed at update. Don’t want to lose all my run data but likely have to switch soon. If you haven’t used it yet, don’t bother. Use another tracker.
NRC does not synch fast enough with phone during the running and lost 10 k I did yesterday on my Apple Watch. I quit , I am gong to use apple’s workout app for now.
I use this app everyday, sometimes when I’m done with my run I forget to turn in off and have accidentally set false personal records. I’d really like to be able to reset some of them. For example, I drove off in my car after my run and after a mile of driving it thought I ran a mile for 6:12, which to be honest is not my personal best though maybe one day I’d like it to be. Another time was when I left it on and it thinks I was running for 14 hours.. another false personal record. Please fix this part.
This app doesn’t record anything on my Apple Watch anymore. Second try and it’s just not recording my run. Stay away
I’ve used this app training for two marathons, and it’s been mostly good for that, especially in its coaching plan. But there are some key flaws with it: - the plan adjusts on the morning of the last day of the week, so runs later that day aren’t included. That’s when I do my long run, so that isn’t included, so it gives me a higher target the following week to make up. - it always breaks splits by distance, even for time-based workouts. The plan has a benchmark run with a fast 3 minutes. I’d like to able to compare that pace over time. - it’s inconsistent in how it measures runs outside the program - it sometimes suggests a 12 x 200m, or other such intervals. There should be ways to run these outside of the coach plans - it should record a race run over the course of the plan differently: a 10km race over the course of training for a marathon should be recorded differently to an ordinary tempo run
App is good but sometimes get stuck in a page and don’t sync last planned run even if you press start. Nothing too bad cause you can edit run and select that was a run in your plan.
There is some incompatibility between NRC and NTC. When I tried to open my workout from NTC it calls for NRC but it has gotten wrong. Please check it out!
This app is lit as hell 🔥🔥🔥
Needs update badly. Up until the last watch update app was running smoothly , now have to uninstall and install to see if problem rectified itself. But still doesn’t fix problem
It’s a great app to get fit, the coaching is really good and reliable, although, I’ve been experienced some issues with the working out plans with the NTC combined with the NRC, when it is the running day, and I click on NTC train to go to NRC app, after it opens a message pops up saying that I should update my app version but it is already updated! It is a small bug, but still annoying. The rest is perfect!
I have tried to sign up for NRC but as it said I failed attempt and now I’m unable to sign up
The guided runs are extremely helpful if you’re new to running and they’re a massive part of me enjoying my running more than I have in years.
Great motivation with this app !
