When walking or exercising, a bit of music playing in the background can contribute to getting people into an exercising mindset.
An additional contribution would be if the music changed its tempo according to how fast users walk or run.
Here to help do that is an android phone app called DjRun.
DjRun is a free to use smartphone application for Android devices.
The app is...
- sized at nearly 1.5 MB and
- compatible with devices running Android version 2.1 or later.
The app can be used to play music while users exercise, using the built-in accelerometer in their phone to check the phone’s speed and vibrations to judge how fast users are running; it then speeds up the tempo of the music accordingly.
As a result, users get music that has a tempo in sync with their exercise.
