Run+ upgrades to UWP app format, now available on Windows 10 PC

The popular third-party Windows phone Nike Running app, Run+, has been updated to the Universal Windows Platform (UWP) format and is now available on Windows 10 PCs/tablets in addition to Windows phones running Windows Phone 8 through Windows 10 Mobile.

There doesn’t seem to be too many visual improvements with the app on Windows phone however some bugs have been squashed such as one that caused a glitch when sharing a run on Facebook.

Here are some of the app’s current features:

With no official Nike Running app on Windows phone, Run+ has proven to be an essential app for many users, like myself, who made the jump to the platform from iOS. Run+ contains almost all of the features of the official iOS app and also connects directly to users’ Nike accounts to sync their data. Despite being unofficial, the app still manages to display Nike friends leaderboards and, while the voices are different than the official app, also provides voice updates on distance and pace while running.

When viewed on a PC, the new UWP Run+ essentially looks like a larger version of how it appears on mobile devices. Do you use Run+ on your Windows phone? How often and how far do you run? Let us know in the comments!
