    Thanks for your feedback.

    For certain features in the Nike+ Basketball App, you must be close to your device while playing.

    • Track My Game: You do not need to be near your mobile device. The Nike+ Sport Sensors in your shoes will capture every movement. You can upload this information later to your mobile device after your session has ended.
    • Live Mode: You must have your mobile device nearby. We recommend close proximity (10 feet or closer), although it can work at greater distances.
    • Showcase Mode: You must have your mobile device nearby. We recommend close proximity (10 feet or closer), although it can work at greater distances. Showcase Mode is not available for Apple iPhone 3GS or iPod touch 3rd generation.

    Note: The Nike+ Basketball App is no longer available for download in the iTunes App Store. If you are an existing user with the app already downloaded and installed, you can continue to use the app as you’ve done in the past. Be aware that if you have the Nike+ Basketball App installed and upgrade to iOS 8, you will no longer be able to use the app, as it isn’t compatible with iOS 8.
