Nike has updated its Nike+ Running iOS app to now include photo sharing and a new feature to automatically pause your workout when it detects you’ve stopped moving.

With photo sharing, you can take a photo and share it at any time before, during, and after through Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Path.

Auto-pause works with the photo sharing feature in that it uses the app’s GPS technology to find out when you’ve stopped moving. When it pauses your workout, a camera icon will pop-up enabling you to snap a quick photo. Then, when you begin moving again, your workout will resume.
