The goal of RunOn is to make running fun and interesting. The client wanted to engage runners by streaming stories which plot is tied to the heartbeat of the user.


The biggest challenge for the project was sending users’ heart rate to the app and making sure it will influence the storyline.


We’ve connected Apple Watch heartrate monitor to the app to have live heart rate data. This, in turn, we’ve connected to our storyline database and allowed next part of the storyline to be chosen by the heart rate range.


RunOn is an interesting application in that most of the time when it is used our user would not actually look at the app. Our users would be running. Hence, the goal was to make an easy to use interface that would allow users to easily re-engage with the app when they stop.



The goal of the application was to introduce stories in a colorful format and make the interface be easy to use on the go. This called for minimalistic UI with focus on the content.

How we achieved it

RunOn consists of cards that represent different stories. User can initiate a running story with just two steps:

1. Find a story
