Is smartphone addiction bad for you? Not if you use the device for sports. Several apps will be released this year that will help you get moving.

Running with superheroes

Marvel’s superheroes mainly appear in comic books, films, series and games and therefore do not exactly invite physical activity. That’s about to change with the upcoming Marvel Move app, from the makers of the hit Zombies app, Run!

Like Zombies, Run! Marvel Move becomes an app that motivates you to run in a playful way. Audio narration transports you to the Marvel Universe. There are stories featuring the X-men, Daredevil, Hulk, Doctor Strange, and Scarlet Witch, among others. Thor and Loki help you train until you run that 5K in one go, with 24 separate workouts that will take you eight weeks.

The voices are not voiced by the film actors, so unfortunately you don’t have Chris Hemsworth in your ears to motivate you. You need his app Centr for that. Marvel Move will be released this summer.

Niantic is also trying again. The game company hasn’t had such a big bang since the success of Pokémon GO, but it keeps trying. Previously with Harry Potter, Transformers and Pikmin and now it is the turn of the Monster Hunter game series.
