Craig Slagel, Founder & CEO, talks about @rungoapp #Apps #Running #Navigation

There is a multitude of apps out there today for people into fitness and jogging,all of them do their job and seem to thrive with users,we all have our own special requirements though and want that something different others might not want,We all have our own taste and we have plenty of apps to chose from but this one is different and we speak to Craig Slagel who is founder and CEO of RunGo app..

Craig tells us about the app below.

RunGo is the first voice navigation app for runners, unlike other running apps that just track your run and record your stats, RunGo will also guide you on popular running routes with turn-by-turn voice navigation, much like navigation systems used for driving. RunGo is also great for travelling and guides you offline using GPS only, so you don’t have to worry about data roaming.
RunGo has a library of over 20,000 routes around the world and curated featured routes in popular running cities around the world including Dublin, London, Barcelona, San Francisco, New York, Vancouver, Sydney and many more. If you can’t find a good route in your area, RunGo has a in-app route creator that allows you to build your own voice guided route in seconds.
