Since the recent release of Nike+ running app for android, im thinking about changing from mapmyrun for more a community running app.

Just out of interest what do people here think?

If you're after community, then there are sights that will give that to you.  If you are after accuracy, don't bother with the Nike+ stuff or any phone app.  Buy yourself a dedicated device - loads to choose from.  These will give you access to communities also.

I use both. I like the Nike+ community and usually log my
Miles with that. I know its not that accurate. I just tried the
Nike+ app on my android phone. As long as your phone isn't shaken about
It works ok. Mine got moved a bit last night, kept pausing and
Didn't record my run. It did work in an arm pouch the
Other week. As for map my run, its good, and even better
Since the update. I use it for working out new routes which it
Does well. Anyway, Nike+ is compatible with map my run so you
Can upload your Nike stuff. As for general accuracy who knows
Last week I used the phone app, sports bang, and my mate
Had his garmin. All gave different results. My plan is
To try the app and sports band on a measured 5k and
See which is most accurate.

It can be done if your not on o2, and you have an unlocked phone.

It wont show up in the google play store and if i go through a lin on the web, it tells me its not avaliable

Loan an o2 sim from a willing chum then download it. Worked for me. You
Can get a pay as you go sim from o2 and try that. It's free.
