I’ve been testing the new Nike+ Running site over the last couple of weeks. The big news is that the previously Flash-powered site has been totally re-written. The new site goes live in June, but if you’re wanting to see what’s coming this FAQ from Nike has the details.
While I am a fan of the Nike+ iPhone app, the site has long felt neglected and is consistently unreliable. Features like importing your Gmail contacts or searching for/adding a friend work inconsistently or not at all. And Coach is unavailable in the app and on the mobile site making it kind of useless.
I am at once excited and skeptical about the new site. I can’t decide whether it is a good sign or not that the current Goals, Challenges, or Coach features are not being rolled over into the new version. And I can only hope that they don’t remove the color-based levels because I really want to reach black. I guess I’ll find out in June.
