I only use spotify but the Nike+ running only uses ITunes. Would you be able to coaporate with them so that I could use my spotify in the fullest way possible while I run? I want to be able to preset workout music and all that fun stuff!

With Spotify Running, the app will detect your tempo and match the perfect music to make you a harder, better, faster, strong runner. 


This summer we also teamed up with Nike to bring new music experiences to their audiences around the globe. You can more details about Spotify and Nike+ here


Thanks for bringing your feedback to Spotify! #NewSpotify

Has anyone thought of the idea to integrate Spotify with Nike+?  Nike+ allows you to listen to music while you run but right now is limited to either the music in iTunes or Google Music (Android)

I don't particularly use that service, but I can see how it would be useful!

Same thing for me! Otherwise do you know another app that could work with our spotify list?

I use Nike+ and Spotify together a lot. Turn off music on Nike+ and use Spotify instead of it. Nike+ tells pace distance etc. and during those notifications Spotify music is on lower voice level.

just turn off music on nike+ running app and start your run, then double click your iphone's home button and go to spotify and play.  then go back to nike+ running app and it should continue your run!!


now i have endless music to listen to while training for a marathon!

I currently start my spotify music, then start the Nike+ app, but it would be nice to be able to use the nike+ app to actually control my songs too....  If I am running and need my "power song" it is difficult for me to exit out of nike and find spotify to change songs....   I run with my phone in an armband, so it is difficult to change apps while running.

Does anyone know how to use Spotify with the Nike Training App? It only uses iTunes, which I don't use. Any ideas?
