APP OF THE WEEK

Llanelli Star - - TECH NOW -

NIKE makes a few great apps; its Run­ning and Train­ing Club apps are great for those who need help get­ting up to speed.

The Nike app, on the other hand, is more or less a shop to buy Nike stuff, and a very nice one it is too.

What’s more in­ter­est­ing than that is the fact it will

soon sup­port aug­mented re­al­ity, which in turn pow­ers a new sys­tem of mea­sur­ing your feet.

And while that might sound com­i­cal, it does solve a real prob­lem peo­ple have when buy­ing on­line: how do you know they’ll fit?

It’s no se­cret that not all size nines are the same,

and some peo­ple have feet that are two dif­fer­ent sizes.

You’ll be able to point your phone at your feet within the app and order your train­ers with con­fi­dence that when they come, they’ll fit.

It’ll come to Europe in Au­gust, after launch­ing in the US in July.
