You might have heard of this online running/cycling app called Vingo. It is very versatile on many accounts. As a long-term user of this app, it is my duty to share my experience with it, so you may get to know the ins and outs of this app.
Good Things About Vingo
The Vingo App has a lot of great features. It is designed to tackle the boredom in our exercise routines. For that, it uses virtual reality and virtual space. In other words, you can exercise from anywhere in the world and get online through the app. Once you’re online, you will be able to access a lot of virtual maps to explore. You can jog in them, run in them and also go on a cycling trip. All you need is a treadmill or an exercise bike and a screen placed in front of them. The numerous cool features in the app will take you into a virtual journey and turn your exercise into a real-time adventure.
However, there are a few things that need to be improved on the app too.
Things That Should be Improved
For starters, the app is available right now, only for screen-based devices. That is, you need to place a screen before you and have the app installed in it. it is not yet available for Virtual Reality glasses. Seeing the world move into Virtual Reality, we kind of hope to have the same experience with the app too. In fact, the app would do better with a VR headset, rather than a screen. The numerous maps and detailed locations in the app deserve to be experienced with a VR headset and we can imagine the fun we can have that way.
Features That are Missing in the App
Right now, the app is available for Windows OS and very recently the app was launched for iOS, for Apple products. This is a bit of a limiting factor for the app. More than 70% of people in the world use android-based gadgets and not being able to use the app via Android phones is a big dull moment. But we have heard that the developers are working on the android app with a lot cooler features than their original versions. The team is also developing a new version of the app for Windows devices. So, soon the app will be available for all OS.
We can sure hope that the android version of the run go app will prove to be better.
How to Get the Most Out of the App
So, as a bit of advice from a senior here, go for the app no matter what device you use. You can enjoy the app with its many features like creating your own avatars, setting goals and challenges to improve your game, getting your friends and family together to exercise together and so on. And, in the near future when it comes with a VR headset, you are in for amazing adventures through the app.
