Summary

Audio-based exercise app intended to provide motivation to run/jog. The app requires the user to wear headphones, and to follow a narrated story while out running/jogging. The story is set in an apocalyptic world populated by the living dead (zombies), and the user is personified as one of only a few human survivors. The app guides the user through a series of game-oriented tasks (including collecting ‘items’ and building a ‘base’), while running from zombies. The faster the user runs, the more likely zombies are to be avoided, and extra ‘items’ found. The user can choose to add and play custom music between narrated passages, or select from music files integrated into the app. An option focuses on ‘interval’ training. Registration with the developer’s ‘Zombielink’ allows the user to share results via Facebook or Twitter, view other people’s runs, and playback chases, to improve on timings. The app contains material sufficient for 40 runs/jogs.

Review: “I just downloaded the ‘Zombies, Run!’ app for my phone. It may have been the best decision I ever made. I was apprehensive at first, because it was $7.99
