    "Run to the beat"

    When it came to running, mood is as important as feet. One of the best ways to get in the right running mood is listening to music. However, music can, unwittingly, affect your pace. DjRun's here to avoid those situations and motivate you to improve your workouts.

    DjRun uses the motion sensors built-in in your smartphone to detect your stride rate (steps/minute). Next, it tracks all the songs located in your SDcard and discover its beats per minute (BPM). With these two values, it suggests you songs that match your running pace. That's the booster you needed to complete your running plan.

    There's more. DjRun comes with preset trainings from Beginner to Expert level and some Sprint Intervals and Challenges. Only first two weeks plan for Beginner level is available in the free version. In addition, you can adjust at your whim lot of parameters: manually set target stride rate (pin mode), custom trainings and order song by title, artist, tempo. Most of these features are only available in the Pro version.

    DjRun's UX is simple yet neat and polished. A design revamping would enhance its attractive though. In addition, it's a pity that the free version is such restrictive. A limited time trial version would be preferable.

    Beyond these catches, the app concept is so powerful. Must-try.
