Nike recently announced that they will not be bringing native support for their Nike+ products to the Android platform. Why is this? It could be due to the already ready to go system support for Apple, or maybe it’s due to the fact that Tim Cook is on Nike’s board of directors! **conspiracy alert**
In all seriousness, this lack of support that Nike is giving to Android is getting quite irritating. I know that a lot of people may find this ridiculous, but for a very active person like myself it becomes tedious to have to decide between my iPod and my phone when I go on a run. Sure, there is the web method, but that can be irritating as well. I have to go inside, take off my FuelBand, plug it into the computer, go to the correct website, log in, sync the FuelBand, THEN finally check my stats. That is rediculous! Why is this necessary?
This strenuous process is necessary due to Nike’s stubbornness to move past Apple. With Tim Cook representing Nike though, it’s not a surprise. Selfish move… For now it looks like Android users will have to wait, and I’m stuck using my iPod. A necessary sacrifice to stay in shape! (Random end of post tangent)
