Screen shot 2013-03-31 at 5.25.04 PMCruise Control run is like having your favorite artist as your personal trainer. This fun new iPhone app selects music from your iPhone library and adjusts the music to match the stride of your run. You can also set it to a target pace or cadence and it will adjust the rhythm of your music, just like the car adjusts its throttle, to get you to your target and keep you there. Cruise Control has four different modes: Free Run: Just RUN! The rhythm of the music will automatically adjust to match your stride. Pace: Pick a target speed and RUN! As long as you match your steps to the rhythm of the music, the music will get you to your target speed and keep your there. Heart Rate: Pick a target heart rate and RUN! As long as you match your steps to the rhythm of the music, the music will drive you to your heart rate goal. Cadence: Pick a target stride rate and RUN! Cruise Control will adjust all of your songs to play at the same tempo. Cruise Control scans your iPhone’s music library and analyzes each song's tempo (in beats per minute or "bpm") to select the songs with the right beat for the running modes. Its patented algorithms speeds up or slows down each song in real-time without changing the pitch so the songs still sound great! After your workout, Cruise Control logs your time, location, distance, calories and speed so you can train and track your improvement and post the map of your run on Twitter and Facebook. It’s a great way to challenge yourself and your fellow runners to stay motivated and to get out there and rock your run!
