Orlando, Florida – Independent developer Mark Blum today is pleased to announce the release of Marx Runner for the iPhone and iPod touch. A revolutionary jogging app, Marx Runner turns your daily run into an interactive motivational music experience. You’re free to create and record original beats by mixing various vocals and instrumentals, then save and play them while you run. Your pace dictates how quickly or slowly the music plays, or if it plays at all. Users can also record vital stats from each run as well.
Mark Blum, an Air Force veteran and former physical trainer turned mobile app developer, is excited to announce the launch of the revolutionary new Marx Runner jogging utility onto the App Store. Compatible with the iPhone and iPod touch, this unique motivational app is the first of its kind to blend music creation and workout motivation into a single wildly engaging experience. With Marx Runner you become your own DJ, then play back your creations and let them push you to commit to your runs! To boot, the app automatically records important jog statistics for review, as well as simple stats sharing options via social media.
Music has always been a source of motivation for workouts, and it’s a notion that Marx Runner adopts and – well – runs with like no other jogging app on the market today. Designed to motivate and push joggers to meet and exceed their running limits, the app utilizes the iPhone and iPod touch’s velocity sensors to control how many beats per minute users’ own original music plays via its Speed Motivator. The idea is simple: the faster you run the more quickly the music recordings you’ve created play. Tempo is everything after all. If you slow down or stop completely the songs you’re listening to slow down and stop too. People listen to music while they run to get themselves into the right mindset, and it’s proven to work. This app just takes this notion to the next level
Marx Runner gives you the added incentive of being able to create your own beats, rhymes and vocal arrangements via a uniquely intuitive five-step beat-making module, and ties it all directly to how fast you can keep moving during playback! Not to be outdone, the app is a well rounded running utility. The running stats module we’ve mentioned enables you to record and save important metrics such as run times, distances run and average speeds of each of your jogs. This gives you a clear picture of your progress, and if you want to brag about it with these stats as proof feel free to do so with the click of a button via Facebook and Twitter too. Mind over matter isn’t a cliche, its how you train at your top level, and it has never sounded so good or been so creatively engaging with Marx Runner.
