If you listen music while running, then chances are there that only few songs rhythm match your running speed. Your whole music library can never match running speed. Well, problem has been solved now, thanks to Cruise Control App. This app changes the rhythm of music as your running speed changes with motivational running sound.
Cruise Control has been introduced by biomedical physiologist Max Donelan and PhD candidate Mark Snaterse in Canada’s Simon Fraser University. This app can be operated in one of four modes and also compatible with iOS devices.
If you start running selecting the rhythm matched with your running speed, the app will automatically select the next track from your library and adjusts its rhythm with your running speed.
Obviously Free Run is opposite of rhythm. You can check your cadence (at which running) of a given time using iDevice existing sensors. The app also adjusts the tempo with your current speed. In cadence mode, you run to the music beat while in Free run the rhythm of beat changes to keep with the runner.
Pace mode is same as Cadence. The difference is only in Pace mode you specify the speed that the runner would like to reach. Then app monitors the runner speed and increases the rhythm until the runner reachs that speed.
The last mode is Heart Rate mode, just like Pace mode but there is only one difference. In this mode you are being guided to a target heart rate instead of running speed. It requires ANT+ or Bluetooth smart heart rate monitor to run the app at heart rate mode.
You can also create your playlists, mark the tracks as favorite and check the data of your previous run.
Cruise Control is available on iTunes, for US$4.99.
